Good luck, there's still a lot of good ones out there, and southern California is a HUGE market for used 1st gens, although it might be harder to find a 5 speed.

Got new 185/65r15 tires, almost looks like off-road tires, but they ride super smooth and bring my cruising rpm's down. After switching to synthetic oil, I get 41 mpg's @ 55mph. Worth every penny.

Very interesting. I live in Los Angeles, and you couldn't swing a dead cat around without hitting one!

I bet it has something to do with the area. Florida has a lot of freeways and retiree's, and...

The xB's always had a diverse and loyal community, and I think it's growing with a new generation of drivers that don't see anything else like it on the market. Folks seem to be willing to pay a...

1st gen popularity

I've been browsing Craigslist and CarGuru's since I purchased my '06 xB 5mt about 3 years ago. I paid $3,000 for it and saw similarly priced 1st gens. Now when I look around I see many 1st gens being...

I finally changed my oil to full synthetic, and the Butt Dyno is telling me that I picked up some power compared to the old dinosaur oil. I should've done this a long time ago!

I just ordered some...

Today I started on my roof rack install. I picked up a Yakima rack on Craigslist for $50, even though the cross bars are too short for the width of the xB. That's ok because I do a lot of work with...

Hey all,

So I'm embarrassed to say it, but the solution to my problem was very simple. I did two things at once that not only solved my fueling issue, but completely changed the way my xB drives....

Crank, no start [emoji24]

My beloved '05 xB is sick! Today I went to start her up like usual and she died after about 10 seconds. I restarted her an then she died after about 2 seconds. Now I can't get her to start, the...

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

I installed a new double-din Android tablet style head unit in my xB today. It fits good, but I'll have to trim the bezels I ordered to achieve the perfect fit. I love having Google maps on a large...

Re: 6 speed xb, am I the only one?

It seems to me that the transmission swap just might be the perfect upgrade for those of us who live in high paced cities. I agree that first gear feels like it's just to get the car moving, almost a...

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Can you show us more of your tablet? I'm looking to upgrade my radio and I hear the radios with Android auto don't work well with the Torque app.

BTW, very inspirational to see the process of your...

Re: Let's talk mpg's

100 mph in an old muscle car must've felt great!

I cleaned the MAF and throttle body about a year ago, maybe it's time to clean them again.

Do you think if I reset the ECU and go for a long...

Re: Let's talk mpg's

Dubee, that's why I'm a little confused. In town I drive it like a little rally car: hard and quick, I shift at 4-45k RPM's and heel-toe most corners, and I engine brake every chance I have. I barely...

Let's talk mpg's

With TexB's post about his Echo tranny swap, I got to thinking about fuel economy and real world driving. I recently did two 200 mile round trips, and used my Torque app to monitor my fuel...

Re: 6 speed xb, am I the only one?

That's awesome. Have you noticed a difference in your gas mileage? I could only imagine how much better highway mileage it could get, possibly city too. I drive 55mph @ 3k rpm, and often start in 2nd...

Re: 6 speed xb, am I the only one?

Nice! That sounds pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. What all went into the installation of the Echo transmission? Did you have to modify anything?
