I'm gonna go with they shouldnt count.

IMO Moving the tC badge to the front is not a mod, neither is adding decals

who's really counting? I have OBX pedals as a mod becuase it didnt come with the car along with the SCION license plate frame and the floor mats which are on my cardomain page. It doesnt have to be "aftermarket" or something you buy from somewhere else to be a "mod". Dont see a problem with it. Hell i even have LEDs in my dome lights as a mod. I dont see it as a problem but obviously some peeps have problems with it. Never saw any rules on what you cant put in your profile but i guess thats besides the point? I guess its all who can we make fun of about their profile? Im not trying to start anything but i can see where this thread will go by tomorrow night.

i disagree with the OBX stuff. sure, it's a dealer option but it's an aftermarket ____ **** / pedals nonetheless. hey, maybe i'm just biased because i have them. i consider them a mod, though. if i hadn't gotten them for a HECK of a deal, i would have gotten momo or another brand, but fact is i still don't have the stock pedals or shift ****. $.02

nobody ever said it was illegal to post something as a mod....but many of these things are either STANDARD. I mean, if that's the case, i can take a dump in my trunk and call it a mod.

aftermarket poop ****

Im noticing a pattern here.

Anyways, Im with jaxtcracer on this one. Usually something like the OBX stuff does not come on the car from Japan, so in my mind its aftermarket. Also deleting/adding/relocating badges is a mod, albeit a very minor one, as they are changes made to the car. Just my opinion.

Not to complicate things, but technically those are factory accessories. Which I would say is a third category alltogether. So they are but they aren't. I guess its all a judgement call anyways. Personally, out of silverstreaktc's list, only the bike rack and bug shield is a mod in my opinion. The rest can be removed so easily that they dont really "modify" the car.

look, anything that didn't come with the car from the factory is a mod. it really doesn't matter what you think about it at all.

and it is actually very convienent when people list some mundane stuff in their profile because sometimes other people like to ask them about how they like them.

i was looking for an arm rest for my gf's xa, went through some profiles and pm'ed people about how much they like theirs, between OEM and zeta and a few others.

you want to know what trd exhaust sounds like, ask me, i have it, i'll tell you it sounds great, but doesn't add any power.

do tires count as a mod? i replaced the oem set, and i list whatever i'm currently using, so if somebody wants to know about kumho ecsta asx from somebody who actually has them, they can ask.

shift *****, who knows, maybe you want to ask somebody where they bought their momo **** etc.

if i list the streaks of grime on my car from driving 80 mph in the rain on salty dirty roads as a mod, does it really hurt anybody? answer, no, it doesn't. get over it.

^^^ Hmmm, yes yes, you make a valid point indeed.




I personally would not list something like a cargo cover, or floor mats as a mod- in my tC, I ordered it with the oem ground effect, spoiler, emx rims, trd exhaust, sway bar, strut bar (pretty much almost all of the accessories from Scion or TRD) and I don't consider them "mods," even though the sway bar technically is one-- but I figure I bought it that way.....so I only include TRD lowering springs and yellow luminics in the fog lights a "mod" for me.... but thats just me =]

whether we do or dont think its should be a mod, people are still going to list them, so we should take what we read and judge ourselves...i think anything that you have bought after the purchase at the dealer and is not Scion/Toyota brands should be counted....it IS all money that your investing your car and thats what scionlife is all about...

when they go to a show and say they have 27 mods to their car that just means a better chance for you when your 15 mods include turbos, real rims, real exhaust, etc vs their floor mats, toy car, led blinker, and coffee can exhaust
