    I've tested an frs and I really like it! Now I'm asking you guys since you own an frs...should I hold on to my tacoma 'till it's paid off next year or trade it in on the frs now and give up the tacoma?

    Depends on your use of the Tacoma, and how much you think you can get in trade. If you think you can get more selling it, I'd wait to pay it and sell it and make more of a down payment on the FR-S.

    Or sell it, take the full price of the FR-S on the loan and use the truck money for teh mods (super charger)

    :cool:

    This is exactly what I went through. In my case, I got a company truck last month with fuel paid for...this made it an easy call for me - no need for two trucks when I can have one that's 100% free. With my trade in, I'm paying $40 less per month payment, $150 less per year on insurance and almost double the MPG. Granted all that gets washed away when I start dumping more monies in to the 86 :D

    At the dealer again dropping my wife's FR-S off. The spoiler is falling off for the second time. I was informed there was a stop sale on the spoiler. Now they have a bolt on kit instead of the adhesive tape.
    I hope it last this time. I'm tired of coming here.
