just got an email from someone in the sales dept at our Toyota dealership, we are getting a midly restyled 2013 xB, looks like they are dropping elusive blue and stingray for colors but adding absolute red and bringin back nautical blue, they are messing with the front by adding some kind of led lighting and blacking out a section of the bumper, in the rear they are doing the same, interior is getting chrome accents and the seat cloth is getting bronze center pieces, I will post the full email once I get out of court (speeding ticket).

I have never used them, as I can't reach them while driving... ;)

as far as the RS 10 color speculate away my friends, I have asked the guy who sent me the info, but he doesnt know as of yet. when he knows I will tell you all.

as for the LEDs in the front, I got a friend who bought a 2012 in stingray a few months ago, I would love to add LEDs to his ride like the Ozniums.

Also, because the CHP officer decided not to show, my speeding ticket and out of date tags infraction were both dismissed... and that was going to a 700 dollar ticket too... yes I bought a lotto ticket tonight.

You know this really pisses me off because that was one of my main concerns about buying my 2012xb. I even emailed scion and said I hope there are no changes coming otherwise I will wait. dickheads

Man you got lucky! I tried that and it was like 2 min before court and the *** comes waltzing in... 200 bucks later oh and I heard a mouthful from the judge. I just rolled a stop in my neighborhood and I was driving my wife who just got canned so she's bawling as he's writing the ticket. I never had a ticket before that I don't get how I couldn't just get a warning.

Hope they offer these at a reasonable price for us '11/'12 guys.
If we could get them to listen to us about what we really want (a bigger engine and 6spd tranny) one can only hope.

Yeah, the tC engine + tranny would be perfect for us! 180 hp and 173 lb·ft sounds about right :D

They could surely play up the sporty aspect a lot more then and the car would have even less competition that it does now. It would cost more too though. Of course I love the idea but don't know if I want it now that I have my brand new xb :)
