Yeah. I'm buying another box soon. I'm getting a 5-speed box. I can't decide if I want the Salsa Red or a Polar White box. They both look good with bronze or gold wheels. I can't decide. I've seen plenty of white boxes running around & they look nice. I haven't seen that many Salsa Red boxes, but the ones that I have seen look pretty nice too! Hahahaha! Out of those 2, what would you get?

I would have to say Salsa Red also (and this is coming from 2 PW owners!!) I really like the way SRP looks with silver C/F too.

Yeah. I might actually end up with a Salsa Red. Seems like it will become a collectors item in the future! (^o^ ) <3


But that Polar White... ( ^_^) ???

PW is gorgeous....honestly it is. But there are SO many of them here in SoCal.

Salsa Red, Shadow Mica, and Camo are all rare colors without being RS. Get one if you can!!

The Polar White does look nice, but after going to the Scion Exposed show here in Seattle I noticed that out of about 200 xb's only maybe 5 or 6 were Salsa Red. There had to be at least 25+ that were Polar White (or at least started out that way!)

Having both a Salsa and a Polar Scion, my opinion is..........it depends.

I actually like my Polar white box better, but the Salsa is a VERY nice color.

It come down to which you like better - which better fits the personality you want your box to have. The PWs are more strict and stern that the sexy Salsa's. :D

(Guess I'm really no help.)

Lol! Ok I did see you Tom! It's all about the straw hat mon. I was the black sand pearl with the "ahem," messed up perforated sheetmetal grill that didn't quite bend to match the rest of the car. I was across the isle & down about 3 cars from those 4 RS 3.0's.

I had the choice of Polar White or Salsa Red at the dealer, I wanted the Polar and the wifey wanted the Salsa..... We got the Salsa Red and it was a great choice. The color is hot and sexy and like everyone says, there's not that much Salsa Red out there which is kinda interesting... Too many Polar Whites out there and when I do see them. They're not Polar White anymore, it's more like Dirty White.

I really like PW, but there are indeed a lot of them on the road, and white shows up dirt in a big way.

I've still only seen one SR: go for it!

Go for the Salsa! There aren't enough of 'em on the roads! :) Polar White is really sharp too, but if you wanna be a bit different ...

Just remember that you might have to wash it a lot. Keeping it garaged might help with that. White needs washing a bit less I would say. I washed my white van maybe once a month, and it never looked filthy. Not that I would recommend that! My black xB has to be washed every other day or it looks like I dragged it through the mud.

Looks like the Salsa Red box will be in my possession soon! ( ^o^) <3

5-Speed
Fog Lights $350
Rear Bumper Applique $58
Center Armrest $125
Cargo Net $45
Floor & Cargo Mats $120
Pioneer AM/FM CD Deck $0
10-spoke Wheel Cover $0

Base MSRP: $14,030
Del, Proc & Handling: $540
Accessories: $702
Grand Total: $15,272

I'm gonna see who has it soon! ( ^o^) <3

I'd save the cash & not bother with the armrest, you don't even miss it. And the floor mats you can get at Costco (or Sam's Club I'd guess) for about $45 for a set of 4. It won't say Scion on them though.
