Hey guys and gals,

Name is Wade and I am also from new orleans. Just got my box last friday! I have been wanting one since i was in high school and the first one came out! well it took some time to finally get one but when I saw the new release series I decided to part with my tacoma which will be missed but so far I am loving the new addition. I filled up the gas tank yesterday and it cost me 40$ to fill up i was jumping for joy. My tacoma use to cost me around 75$ to fill up. Anyway I already have some mods begining to start this week. Waiting on my package from crutchfield to come in so i can install my sony double din mtx amp and subs. I am currently getting a special box made for it which i actually found some pictures of a guys interior work and what he did with his subs and amp on this site and with a few modifications came up with a design i like! So thanks to this site allready for helping me. Also have some black DMC 18" rockstar rims and tires on the way! Time to crank up the mods for the summer. I am loving this site and look foward to being a part of it.

Welcome to the site and the fam-a-lam. There is a great NOLA chapter of Scikotics there you might want to check them out for tips and fun. Enjoy your new baby and beware that modding bug.

Hello Wade,glad to hear from you. What color did you get? What tranny? I guess you know that mods will always continue as long as you have the box,have fun.

yep voo doo blue with an automatic... I love standards but im more of a sports car stick guy. Have an 05 vette thats a stick and its a blast! Anyway ideas are always popping in my head from checking out this forum and im thinking i want to get rid of all the gray in my xb. paint the pillars and stuff in the car blue change the headliner to a black suede and all the things on the top of the vehicle get a nice black paint job. Seen a guy on here do that with red and black and i thought it looked amazing. also will be having a custom sub box built and have it wrapped in suede

Have to wait about 2 more weeks for a guy to build me a custom box it should loook sweet when its all done! also threw some blue led lights under the front passenger and driver side cost me like 20$ for the blue lights cant complain way cheaper than the 300$ i beleive the dealership wanted!

Yea, I've seen a few vettes that are automatics and I'm thinking that they're not really "sport cars". Maybe it's me haha. Cars a long time ago had diff. paint on their tops were called "two tone". Some compo's were really cool, and others were really strange. Happy modding.

Welcome, I have an auto RS8 as well. A standard would've been more fun but in reality, its still fun and not going to win any races or atleast in most of the xB's I've seen.

Looks great! I like the blue A, B, and C pillars.

I never noticed before they moved the rs plaque to the waterfall.
