As far as I am concerned, I am allowed to voice my own opinion regardless of what my status may be on this forum. If I was not a mod, I would have still written that post.

Maybe as your DD you don't have the stickers all over the car, maybe the stickers were only put on for SEMA, I don't know. If you don't rock the stickers everyday, then maybe it would look nicer in person. If you do.. Regardless, I have always said "If it makes YOU happy, that is all that counts." on these forums when talking about someone else's car.


Please note that this is my opinion and if you get butthurt... then oh well.

as most people who have gone to past sema's mentioned.. there wasn't too much going on this year compared to others.. but what do i know..

lol nahh, not a pwn, just a common mistake, xA has ist, xB has bB, xD has urban Crusier/ist, tc has... nothing. The tC didnt fail because it didnt have a JDM counterpart like the rest, in fact, i think it is one of the most successful Scion has made for a modding platform.

not to mention, about 99% of the people on this site probably cant afford to do any thing like that to their cars and dont have the knowledge to even do it themselves if they wanted to.

then you have to talk about legalities...just like tjin's tc. was it sick? yes was it street legal? no
^^^^ great comment.... hushed everyone and brought this threat to somewhat of a hault.
(one day, should of been longer, but hey)

So has anything changed in the 99% probably not. But thanks for the reality check.

AWESOME COMMENT AWARD for ((((YellowXHoodie))))

I am one of the builders that built blue/teal xb. Some of you guys hate and thats your opinion. This car was built for a competition (for $10,000) and it was judged on a basic car show score car. We were only given 8 weeks to build the car (I would love to see what you guys could come up with in eight weeks). I had alot more things planned for the car but ran out of time.

Also check out the new (Feb/March) PAS mag. cover and 6 page spread; not many of you here can say you have done that.

True enthusiasts appreciate all forms of auto enthusiast "expressionism", even if its not something they directly associate with.

idk wat other ppls problem with ur car is but that is a badass xb2 and wat makes it even more badass is da fact dat its unique.

and same goes for all the other scions that were in the pics..y hve a vehicle dat looks like every1 elses when u can put hard earnd time and money into sumthin and make it ur own..isnt that wat a scion is all about..WAT MOVES YOU!

id say for all those who cant appreciate good quality custom wrk and the unique style of a builders creative mind..u shouldnt talk shyt..if u can settle for a plain stock scion how could u njoy the views of a true custom..n if u cant appreciate shyt then ur opinion dnt mean shyt.

my wife and I actually spoke with you or someone that was with the blue xb there. We gave you alot of props and were very impressed with the xB in person. We had our xA at SEMA also, but we didnt get really any love, but dont really care. I was a week for us to party with friends, so it is what it is. Congrats on the PAS spread. I was happy to have a tiny spot on PAS mag, A whole spread is dope. Hope to see what you guys do to the xB, concidering yall ran out of time, are you gonna go and do any of the original plans?
