Funny you should post this I was just talking to my local dealer about the info. He said he had to get back to his rep. because he couldn't remember the details. I asked him about the color and they "think" its going to be the gold color they have up on the internet. Also not sure how many they are gonna get. He said at least one, maybe two and auto and a manual. If the gold is the same as the 5 axis I am going to put in a deposit asap. If not then I will get another one. Also the MSRP, I am guessing you missed a zero. Should probably read $24,000. Why so much? Thats not like the $1500 difference the other RS versions had. Also is the sunroof factory, and will it be a future option later on? I would still think for that price they could have at least given us rims and not wheel covers.

no, i didnt miss a zero. the $2400 is the RS package price. take msrp, add $2400, and you have the price of an rs 5.0 xB.

Yeah I kinda figured later on. I answerd pretty quickly on the way out the door. While thinking about it afterwards I realized what you were saying. $24k would be quite a bit an expensive xB, It would have to be one hella a nice ride.

Thanks for the RS alert ElkGroveScion!

i really liked the gold on the Axis demo xB so hopefully it will be something like that! wonder what the kenstyle body kit will look like...

talked to my local dealer today with the fiance. She is definatly more open to the car now that she saw how nice it is inside. They told me they can lock in my deposit for $500. I was thinking more around $1000 and he said they can do it for anywhere between that I want. Also I was told that its going to be a march release time, most likely the end of march. Also they still haven't seen any photos and think that we won't see anything unitl just before release. However I was told I could drop my deposit and if I don't like it I can use it on a different xB. So I may go ahead and drop some cash on it. They also told me that the color is not going to be any color every used by toyota before.

The only thing I think I would wish for in my xB is a sunroof. That big flat surface is begging for, even (gasp), yes.... 2 sunroofs!

Interesting... still has wheel covers and I'm not diggin' the seats at all.

i am glad it doesn't have wheels. it would just increase the cost, and if you bought one, you would have the same wheels as everyone else who bought one.
i am with you on the seats, for sure.

well, you can expect it all you want, but it does seem unlikely... :p

i am sure the kit has a lot to do with the increase in cost. by the time our five axis kit was painted and installed, we were into it for about 2000 our cost. a factory moonroof option is only about 800 retail.
