Hello all fellow xB owners, admimirers & fans!!!

I have been lurking around for a while now. My friend Socal_ShadowXB has been sparking my interest in the boxes for quite some time. I already speak Scion fluently, so when it came time to pickup another ride I had to pick the obvious choice... A new 2006.5 TCM xB!!! :D

I have a 2000 civic Si and was thinking I wanted another fast car... But, as you already know with the TC's, fast cars = drama. :confused: Too many people with attitudes. :mad: Plus the cost of replacing brakes, tires & axels gets expensive. Plus, I ride a Honda CBR 954 RR. (SuperBike for the non riders) Why buy something for speed when it wont compare...

Another reason for picking the box is the great aftermarket support.Going for style this time...

Got some rims & will be adding springs within the next week or so....

See ya around!!!

(TCMs Unite!!!! Ha, now I can say that too!!!)

Welcome. Glad you came out of the shadows. So, what's the 411 on your wheels and springs?
Wheels: ADR Sokudo 8 205x40x17 (From my civic) Need: Info to measure Offset of existing Rims. Will need spacer size info once I know what I am starting with... Any help is appreciated...;)

Tires: Need new Rubber, killed the existing tires last season.

Springs: Got connects with XclusiveScions (Soon to be an offical member), so its Goldlines for me.

Other Future Mods:

Hotchkis Sway & Strut Bars
Upgraded Shocks, Not sure what brand yet
Tint (Of course)
AEM Intake
Magnaflow Exhaust
More too come...:D

I've had my ride for 4 days, 283 miles & one full tank of dealer gas...

Since I've had the car for such a long time I felt it needed to be lowered. Who am I kidding. Its the first thing I must do to every car I have ever owned.!!! :D I had Goldline 2" lowering springs installed!!!!

Here are pics some pics to check out. If your browser doesn't auto-resize the pics, sorry for the large size... (If you need info regarding auto resize, hit me up)

I will be getting my rims & tires ready this comming weekend. No spacers yet. Sorting that out. I'm I pic whore, so more will always be added here...:D
