Default xB being dissed!

Being laughed at, anyway. 'Course it is an xB-2 they're laughing at, but . . . .

Admittedly, I tried, but I didn't really see the relevance.

There's two mention of Scion in the comments, one of which is a pic of that flat black two-door xB.

I mean, couldn't this be a dig at anyone who modifies a car? Other than the mention of humor in it's appearance...

umm well only thing i can say it. they went to all that trouble to dis an xb. wow we should be honored. not cause they dissed it. but cause the xb was singled out.

let them talk the bs they do. in the end they only know we are better then them.

also the picture is on a 1st gen. probably was like that for a reason.

The original xB is a love/ hate polarizing design, which love it or hate it does stand out.

The faux xb, well, Scion really kicked themselves in the groin trying to align that with the original xB (no, I am not a fan of the 08 at all and would buy a honda element instead).

The sad part is that the original scion's stood out. Now they have worked there way to the middle and sales are showing that.

Uhhh.... There's a link to a pic of a first-gen xB in the comments section and that's all. Am I still missing the point of this thread?
