Default New xB driver from Phoenix, AZ

Hi all, I just bought my '11 classic silver metallic used. This is the first car I have bought at a dealership and can't wait to make it mine! I'm not to mechanically savvy so i will probably start with some small mods to get my feet wet, but of course funds will also hold me back. Sometimes, small changes can make a big difference.

Welcome to the site. I think you'll find that doing the small mods will give you more confidence to do the bigger ones. Example, swapping out lights with LED's is most likely the easiest thing. Also adding lights (cargo,glove box,footwell) can give you more convience.
Have fun with your xB.

Thanks everyone for the welcome! I've already seen a few cool things I would love to do!

One thing I have noticed tho is that my ride is very bumpy. Not really what I expected and honestly kind of disappointing. Anyone have any ideas of what i can do to improve this?

i use to live in phoenix and the heat out there is treacherous on the roads. entire blocks of pavement sink, potholes everywhere, and poor repair.

create threads about your specific issues and we will address them.
