Default Original 1st Gen owners

I was just wondering how many original 1st gen xB owners are still left. What I mean is how many of you bought your xB new and still have and enjoy it? Seem to be alot that have moved or planning to move on. I still have my 2005 BCP xB that I bought new in Apr of 05 and still enjoy the heck out of it. Sometimes I get a kick out of going back to the older posts to read how stoked people were about their xB's. Oh well, life goes on.

bought mine brand new with 2 miles on it 2/23/07. Just hit 50K miles yesterday and still turning heads wherever I go hahas. I might talk about getting rid of the box but I never will. The only thing that will take my box away from me is a wreck.

I drove my current 05 off the lot on 1/23/05 at 1 mile, didnt even test drive it!

Currently says 90K on the ODO (which I know is wrong since the cluster was replaced and mileage reset at around 30K) about 25K on the built motor and 10K on the rebuilt/regeared trans. Clutch has 3K miles on it.

Needs a set of tires and for me to decide how I want the new paint job to look

I still have my 06 PW xB that I purchased new in April 2006 that now has about 43K miles. I bought an 06 BOP for my wife in October 07 with 29K that now also has 43K.

Bought our '04 xB (Thunder Cloud Metallic) on 05/15/04. It had 2 miles on it.

The car was totalled in a hail storm on 05/14/10. (Note the dates!?!?!?)

When the insurance company paid us for the car, it had 84,400 trouble-free miles on it.
My wife demanded that I wash the car and vacuum it out, before the insurance company took it away.
She sat in the car and rubbed the dash and cried as the 'rollback' arrived.

Here's the xB just after it's last wash:
Name:  04xBLastphoto.jpg
Views: 12
Size:  59.7 KB
(Note: We still have the contractor's sign in the front yard from the hail damage!)

The only things we've ever done to that xB were to put 1 set of tires and brakes (other than routine maintenance), and we had just put another set of brake pads on the front, about two weeks before the hail storm!


We are now driving a "Magnetic Metallic" '11 Camry SE.
My wife wants HER xB back. She won't even drive the Camry!!
I've offered to buy another xB, but, she does NOT want a new one, nor does she want somebody else's.
She wants HER xB! (Too late. It's gone.)

'06.5 Salsa Red, Bought used in '08 w/18k miles on it. Been on the forums since '05.

Still got it, and still smile every morning when I see it as I walk out the door to go to work.

First car I've ever had that felt like it was "me". Just deciding what I want to do with the paint.

Bought my 06.5 SRP off the lot in March of '07 with 54 miles on it. Now has 39,980 on it. Still like to drive it, but can't stand the bog when taking off. Thinking of selling for an '05 or '06 Mustang GT.

Picked up my RS 2.0 with 1 mile on it. March 2005. Still have it. 85k miles. 3rd radio and second DC Sport muffler. Other than that, no problems. Picked up 2nd Gen RS 7.0 XB with 1 mile March 13, 2010. Already have 8k miles on it. Son takes 1st Gen to collage and 2nd Gen goes to work with me. Wife will drive the Purple box, but doesn't like driving the Yellow box. Because of the color.
