    I had a 1st gen Xb and loved it, but I traded it for my Tacoma.:D I still like the Xb, especially with a bigger motor than my 04 had. However, The new xD has grabbed my attention and with the spoiler and bigger wheels, it looks sharp!

    I roll a tC (when my wife doesn't have it) and love it. 5 spd 2L engine is wonderful. I want to start working on it. It's got a 166 hp engine now- I want 250.

    The xD is sharp looking too.

    I can say that I have never seen a Scion in our City,ther's no dealer here.I see lots of them however as soon as I cross the border.I think they are really cool cars,particularily the XB.....Sorry for the silly question but they are a subsidiary of Toyota correct?

    Ahh the tC. So many of those fell victim to the power of my SE-R. :D

    If I was getting a Scion, without a doubt I would get the tC. But IMHO they are overpriced. My SE-R was less than a moderately equipped Scion and was much faster and fully loaded. Toyota likes to ask to much money for their vehicles. And the dealers around here love to slap on their b.s. $3000 "market adjustment".

    There dosen't appear to be alot out East here,but there may be plenty in other areas of the country....I say I see them in the states because we're only an hour from Maine.

    That's what he tells me. He installed it 2 weeks ago in his buddy's shop

    He just had a basic tune done last weekend on the dyno, he said it's running around 300hp. The guy that did it is mapping out a race tune program to install this weekend. He said it will hauling alot more ass with the race tune.

    I guess he will have a toggle mounted on the dash to switch between the two setups.

    If I was keeping my truck, I'd get the TC. If I had to trade in my truck, it's looking like the xB.
