View Full Version : SCion XB

10-09-2004, 07:36 PM
hey guys there is a "legally" imported scion xb in calgary.... the guy who brought it in had to change a couple of things in order to keep it.. however he also customixed the ride to his likings.. he repainted the entire vehicle.. they did an amazing job including all of the doors and engine bay.. the xb has a full lip kit. he also recovered all of the entirior with custom 2 tone leather. the entertainment system go a huge boost with a retractable indash cd/dvd player screen and screens in the back of each headrest as well as a 12' sub in the back and a hidden amp.. the car is riding on custom but kinda small rims and is a limish green color....

this is a pretty cool car and ive never seen one before... i will get pics up ASAP, i just have to get them off my neighbour..

:werd: I saw a few fixed up ones when i went to Seattle, they can look pretty nice.. The Xa isnt to bad a family car either.

The tC is pretty much a 16k Mercedes. Glass roof, leather interior, heated seats, remote entry... all BASE and not even options!:eek:

And comes stock with 105HP. Wheee!

Slow as hell, the only reason people buy it is for looks. It is a unique car.

And the interior space.

haha all i was sayin is that its original, and i bet one of the only ones in canada... i agree though ugly, and the tc is way nicer

10-10-2004, 02:08 PM
I kinda like them..

10-10-2004, 02:19 PM
tc is a lot nicer
not too big of a fan of the xb
xb's too boxy, kinda like the elemnt
cept, i actualy like the element

10-10-2004, 02:42 PM
xB arent that nice, but iguess they do have unique styling, and there not too expensive either. toyotaz23, yea theyre the boxy ones.

10-10-2004, 03:19 PM
elements are gay

10-11-2004, 09:48 PM
scion xb > honda element

10-11-2004, 09:53 PM
Id love a scion XB super cheap on gas, lots of room to cary parts, skis etc, cheap to buy as well.

10-11-2004, 11:50 PM
saw so many nice xB's when i was down in L.A. this past summer! bring it to canada dammit!

That thing looks like it's got a massive infection on it's chin.

It's original alright, the wheels are dope, but the rest is ghey!

:guns: SCION

10-12-2004, 07:17 AM

Meh....it's not my thing at all. It's a box on wheels..literally. It's unique and eyecatching I agree to that, but I do not like it's styling at all. Sorta like a badly modified Sunfire or Civic with ugly graphics and big wings. Eyecatching yes. Unique yes. Do I like it...no.

10-12-2004, 09:29 AM
hmm seems people love it or hate it. looks ugly imo. box on wheels with a fat lip

10-12-2004, 11:24 AM
those four spoke rims are ridiculously pimp. anyone know what brand they are? perhaps where i can find them? looks like custom offsets and widths to me.

10-12-2004, 11:59 AM
Those are WORK Equip 01 I can get a set for you if you need just PM me


10-12-2004, 12:11 PM

Those rims remind me of the rare old Radar rims for the air cooled VWs


10-12-2004, 01:03 PM
xb :drool: phat ride. all i gotta say.

:bigpimp: fo real

10-12-2004, 03:57 PM
Figures :rolleyes:.

Man go back to cardomain and find another fake car... xB is nice, but it is far from something to drool over... Personal preference I guess.

10-13-2004, 05:47 PM
I dunno if it's just me not being a ricer but aren't those the fugliest damn cars out! No offense to anyone who likes em cuz everyone has their own taste but i think that Scion's cars were designed by a crackhead for a crackhead, i juss don't see how ppl can find a box on 14's pimp!? I'll give a Civic props when it's nicely done up or any other import for that matter, but this Scion BS has to go... :barf:

10-13-2004, 06:16 PM
Yegads... that's gotta be a hop, skip, and a jump straight over the FUGLY line. Eeeew.

It's like a cross between a Honda Element and that terrible looking Fiat van. (sorry, can't remember what it's called)

On the other hand, you could give it that "Ghetto Chic" by setting it on fire or something...:nut:

10-27-2004, 08:58 PM
With some wheels and a lip kit or a body kit, I think the xB's look tight.. I saw a lip kit that not many people have on their cars..


Found these over at http://www.RacingSolution.Com

i like the tc's better too:thumbsup:

No matter what you do to an xB you can't make it look like anything more than a shiny box. it reminds me of a mini Astro van. i personally think they are ugly, not to step on any toes. I honestly have seen just as many senior citizens driving them as kids!

Anyway, besides their horrible styling, they're nothing special inside and sound weak as hell! If you're gonna throw your money away on hooking up a car, get one with more than an inline four putting out 105 hp!! And dont say they have good gas mileage. From every review ive seen, that 30 something mpg rating turns out to be more like 30. My Jetta VR6 can push 30 mpg!! and thats a V6 with 175 hp!

Im sorry, but everytime i see this car, i wanna throw up.

I'm pretty sure I saw it yesterday going west on Bow Trail just past old Banff coach road. Thought it was an element at first :)
Looked good from the other side of the road.
