I'm curious if anyone else has gotten the stock lighting kits or paid for the bumper applique. I went to my maintenance center yesterday and waited 4 hours for them to do the lighting kit. I'm not thrilled in the least with the results. I paid for the bumper applique with my financing and was told yesterday it may or may not ever exist. I got on the scion website and talked with one of their chat representatives and was told that it was basically recalled for poor quality and that it might be re-issued later down the line.
After the 4 hour wait (when I was told it wouldnt be very long) I get in my car and notice it wasnt installed very well. I was told I only had the option to choose one color even though the website said it does 4, I argued with them about it and they said no it only does 1, then when i get in the car it DOES do 4 colors. (just not very well the orange and red are pretty much the same and not very bright)
I have to move the one on the passenger side because they didnt even put it in right. You cant see anything it was installed so high up. I have to file down the hole where one of the LEDs in the cup holders were put because they drilled one way and jammed the light in the opposite way. It makes no sense to me why they wouldnt atleast make sure it was smooth before they stuffed in the LED/dome.
All the reviews I've read about the new xb's have basically said dont waste money on the doo dads but this is the first thing i'm authentically mad about. The GPS unit I re-wired it so its now useful, and the door sill lighting while it was only two when I was kind of expecting 4, its still nice looking and I dont feel like I got ripped off.
The LED kit is awful. I could have done my entire car for the $300 I spent for these clowns to jack my car.
What I'm interested in doing now is changing the color by the speedometer, the dome light and adding some sort of lighting for the back seat and possibly additional LEDs in the "accessory holders" . BUT I dont want to add to many additional switches and i'd kind of like to be able to stick with one color scheme. Ideally I'd like purple, blue and green. And of course I'm trying to do it so that its effective but not overly expensive and no neons.
Help Please! <3
