    As stated in the title, I'd like to tackle installing a remote start system myself. I'm a DIYer, but I have enough sense to research what I plan to tackle to ensure myself it's a possible task for me. I've done hours of research on first time installers and their experiences and how it went for...
  4. General Scion xB Discussion
    Hey Guys! I am wanting to upgrade my suspension (particularly my rear) to hold more weight. I use my Scion for my business (Maine Auto Search) and although my stock suspension is fairing well I would like to upgrade to a more substantial system so it can handle the extra weight I throw in every...

  10. Scion xB Interior
    Yo CxB, We all know the 1st gen Scion xB is severely lacking when it comes to usable and practical internal lighting. Our one dome light is not sufficient enough to light the front of the cabin thoroughly no matter how many LEDs you squish in there. Hence, map lights and overhead console...
