The ugly SUV you are refering to is the Honda Element

2008 xB won't be seen til the Chicago auto show at least

^^^ I'm still hoping it will be NAIAS (but the more I read on here the more I think it will be Chicago)

It will not be at NAIAS. Scion has stated that it will not be revealed to the public until February.

Feb then Apr...

the car has not been released for public view and hasn't been released for the magazines to view either

even though you've edited your posts... for some odd reason...

how exactly would you get your hands on a feb 2007 edition magizine... time machine?

Yes. It has.... MODIFIED MAG was there taking pictures all weekend. They were inside the Civic Center almost an hour before the "Invited Ones"

and the mags are not allowed to publish until after it is publicly released, oh and just so you know the scion event was in the same building as HIN thats what the mags were there for HIN they go in and photo the cars and everything when the public isn't there so they can get the photo ops done of each car, that allows them to choose which ones get spreads in the magazines, HIN was right next to the room the scion event was in

onefunkyfreshdj
12-26-2006, 03:29 AM
Yes. I know that HIN was there as well, but they also did the photo shoot for the xB & xD as well.... otherwise Mark Templin would not have thanked personally for coming.

jwaj2002
12-26-2006, 03:32 AM
but they aren't posting the pics for the xd or xb till templin says they can, and that wan't be till the end of febuary or march I forget which they said

Trust me when I say this... Punctuation always helps when you are trying to make a point, or type anything coherent for that matter.

p.s. STFU until you post pics.

What happened to the thread with the xeroxed fax from Scion corporate to the dealers? I remember seeing it at least sometime before Miami. Sounds like the pics that on there were pretty correct after all. Did it get deleted?

I really have to disagree on this one. The model I saw in Miami was freaking gorgeous. I loved the 2008 xB behind her too. I'd easily trade mine in for the new model.

Sorry, can't. The man is oppressing me at work, and all I see is a big red X. The one I posted is from Edmunds, and so far, the Imperial Oppresors haven't silenced that voice yet.

imagine a 1st gen xb with t2b headlights and a front end that doesn't flow with the body at all.. It does not look like the 2nd gen bb

Gotcha. Yeah, that's ugly as sin. That's quite strange he thinks it's a new xB.

I went to Daihatsu's site and looked at that Materia. I actually really like it. Get this, not only does it have reclining rear seats a la tC, but they also adjust foward and back. That face does have t2B influence, but I'm pretty sure it won't be what the Mother Ship has in store for us.

Your momma is ugly! jk

No, if the car looks anything like the xb in "lastest xb pic" thread, I will be thrilled. Envious of those I'll see on the road. The family has a rs 3.0 and a new civic, and unfortunately for the sake of have a fresh vehicle, we are going to drive these for 5 years or so to get our moneys worth

Here you go bro, I edited your last post as you requested. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure you're great at what you do, car-wise, but if you want to have a strong, valid opinion, grammar, spelling and punctuation can get you pretty far.

Akira's new post:
Look everyone! He is pointing out that I can't spell. By the way I talk better than I spell, a lot of people do; but your pretty funny. Ha! Ha! Well I'd better go wash my xB, or one of my 8 cars at my shop. Damn, I sure have a lot of poop for a non-spelling 4year old. By the way, if your ever in town, stop by and check out the shop and my projects. I'm in Wichita, KS (KingKong Motorsports) If not, send a friend or a relative by to see that I'm the real deal. I get tired of smart-butt nerds bashing people for their spelling skills. Spelling doesn't make me money; my skills to build strong, fast, and nice cars does. And yea by the way, I now own bbist blue 18s that were on their xB. Man, I love my life. [Grads make 200k more in a lifetime than non-grads? I think not.]
