Whats up, new here from alabama, just found forum yesterday after I went to find me an xb. Luckily my dealer was getting the 2012 hot lava, so I picked it up today. Going with some 18's and nice drop hopefully by end of next week.

You might also want to add a rear swaybar, or a matched set while your at it. Once I lowered mine and added the Hotchkis Swaybar set, my xb handled like a totally different car. You won't be disappointed!

One of my favorite aspects of the B is he mix of actually good handling (much better than it should based on basic suspension design), roominess/functionality, get-up-and-go, and the fact that almost no-one expects the performance of this aero-box.

I love the fact that the RS 9 is orange, my kinda box, but the other RS features were really lacking IMO. I think this is a great first time scion buyers scion. the seats are sick as **** and the grilles are the ebst for the 2011+ models.

Get some black or white rims on that beast and slam it on DF210s!!!! can't wait to see what people do with these cars.

Welcome to the site!!!!

I went in to buy one of these when I got mine a few months ago. Place was clueless and said it might be 6 monthz before they were out. Clearly not. Oh well, not hating my black anyways.

Grats on nabbing one! Waiting to see those grills hit the parts department and see about putting on on mine. Probably ridiculously expensive though.
