So in short what do u guys think?? i know its alot of blue but i can always change the color (btw inside lights are blue so go figure.)

So give me your opionions!! I liked the knob its alot different than anything i seen though its almost too much blue.

Yes, that's a 3 piece set for AT - they have a 4 piece set for MT. They're also in a variety of colors: blue, red, silver & gunmetal.

As for the other stuff. The e-brake levers you linked to will probably match just fine. I'm going to attempt a custom job to match my leather steering wheel cover. And I really didn't like the shift knob, but if you like it, by all means, go for it. I think I'm about to order a Razo w/ leather & aluminum similar to the one Scion offers... I'd rather not have it be so similar, but I do like it a lot...

ya im doin stuff on tha CHEAP!!! lol. ya i like those pedals alot more really. The shift knob... well its really different. thats what caught my attention but im not feelin that blue color really imma see if i can find it in black that would be ok. what u think??

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toucan-TK200-Gear-Shift-Knob-Automatic-Transmission_W0QQitemZ290181057667QQihZ019QQcategoryZ33703QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

ehh idk im second guessing i like the style kinda but not the color its too off.

So what knobs do u think would look good with the current setup i got going here? btw i gotta BSP. i cant really afford to much but hey thats what ebays fore. or i could just switch knobs later.

Sorry for the weak introduction i forgot what forums i;ve posted on and which ones are new. HIIIIII

I searched for "anodized knob" and came across this auction... you could probably match it to a e-brake lever pretty easily:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyota-M-T-Carbon-Fiber-Shift-Knob-Anodized-Blue-New_W0QQitemZ110138939668QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item110138939668

It says it's for a MT, but since the xB has a gate style AT, it should work fine...

oh, and I realized that if you search for "anodized knob" outside of eBay motors, you'll find more results... that's one thing I don't like about eBay. Once you start searching and get stuck in eBay motors, you miss out on a lot...

BTW, why not post an intro here: :)

imma work on that intro. so i got the pedals (pending your evaluation), e-brake (btw how does that come off???, just gotta find the right knob...that andozied thing was kinda unno blah. its a stick. a blue stick. i do like the stock one but an upgrade is like 50 dollars which sadly i don't argree with yet (broke college student). I don't think that T-style will work out the colors just aren't right. The one u showed would be cool its just the wrong style. aghhh so many choices :eek: idk what andoized means (though i feel i should) but imma search that. now onto INTRODUCTION!

Anodizing is a lot like powder coating something metal except that it has a real smooth finish to it and is glossy looking. I've had a few things clear anodized to protect against rusting and the look is amazing.

if u guys find any shifter that would match with those pedals and ebrake handle post it up. i can't find a real good knob anywhere. i really don't like that little shaft type thing they have for scion. its odd looking to me. Peace

Btw eric how did those pedals work?

Welcome to the site! Glad to see you here :)

To be honest, I'm not diggin' any of those... If you're looking for blue pedals, take a look at these: (link) ...I just ordered them in silver. They're the only ones that had the foot rest. If you like 'em, you can wait until I get them installed & then order...

those look pretty nice Eric! and a good price too!

let us see some some pics and what they feel like when you start driving w/ them. Thanks!

got ya. so now i can essentially look at some knobs that are made for manuals with the bolt on screws and what not. that makes things so much easier. i think i may go trial and error on shift knobs and post up those pedals when u get them!!
