I'm not sure if you can access it from parts. Depends on your system administrator. I'd suggest catching your Scion manager and asking him/her to go online to dealer daily and going into "scion vehicle maintenance." This is the section where all the colors and PPOs are selected for vehicles -- if you have them check xBs, you'll see seven colors listed, and one of them is yellow.

Do you know what exactly will be included in the RS 2.0 package?

It will also have a mesh grille, a sport muffler, rear spoiler, and side mirror-mounted turn signal indicators.

Stupid Question to follow: ....

Don't more people paint their xB's?


I would think that custom paint and then vinyl would be one of the most obvious expressions of individuality and personalization. I have seen customized xB's resell priced at $24-26, so I assume that a few Grand for paint is not scaring anyone away from doing it. Also, I am guessing that nobody is afraid of devaluating a potential future classic by changing a factory color.

If people like yellow or that limited edition Lava why do they seem so reluctant to repaint? Is it only acceptable if it is a factory-offering?

Anyone shed some light on this?



Just wondering.

How can you take pre orders for NOTHING OFFICIAL? I work closely with our Scion sales manager and he has talked with our rep and there is nothing about an RS2.0. Give me a link or something official. So far I think this is just hype/hope. I do hope they make it, I would have originally wanted a solar yellow Scion. But lets get some concrete proof posted!
This isn't the only dealer taking reservations/ preferences for RS 2.0's. I've already got my money in at my dealer. :mrgreen:

I have a letter here on official Scion letterhead confirming everything about the RS 2.0

Default short bus

I just spoke with cavander scion in San Antonio Tx, as I am buying a 2005 xB when I get back from germany and the (1.0 / lava) will end and the (2.0 / yellow) will release after. They are checking on the release date for me as I want my short bus.

My Regional Rep just stopped by the dealership and he told me that the RS 2.0 xB will be released in Feb., which means it really wont be out till March probably cause Toyota are a bunch of slackers hence the tC supercharger.
They also said that the Absolutely Red RS 1.0 tC will be out around summer of 2005. I will keep everyone posted on them :D

'05 Scion xB Release Series 2.0 Pricing Announcement


Only 2,500 units of the xB Release Series 2.0 will be available, and will begin arriving at Scion dealerships in March. The xB Release Series 2.0 package will carry an MSRP of $1,375.

All xB Release Series 2.0 vehicles feature a bright exterior body color, Solar Yellow, sport mesh grille and unique side mirror turn signal indicator. The exterior is rounded out with a rear spoiler and tunable sport muffler from DC Sports to enhance the xB Release Series' sporty styling and "fun to drive" image.

Interior enhancements include stainless steel door sill enhancements and subtle, black seat fabric with yellow highlights, designed to complement the Solar Yellow exterior color. In addition, individually numbered xB Release Series badging will be applied to the interior of each Release Series car.

There it is everyone. Hope everyone gets their deposits in soon if you are looking.
