Hi ! .. I'm Alonda. I've had my 2012 XB for almost a week and I love it !!

I have so many ideas about the way I want to customize it, but so far only changed a few bulbs and tinted the windows.

Where can I find affordable parts?? I'm clueless ! :(

Hi Alonda!
Welcome to the site!
Most of my cheap parts are from eBay, but I put a lot of work in my car.
Feel free to visit the DIY forum , you'll find some amazing ideas and how to do the same on your ride!

Welcome!

What are you interested in?
For OEM accessories and some aftermarket, it's hard to beat TRDSparks
TRD Toyota-Scion Performance Parts Accessories from Sparks Toyota-Scion

For other stuff, I would personally (Not as a mod here coloring my opinion):
ScionPro- Scion Parts & Accessories From the Scion Pro I The Scion Performance Part Expert
FastScions- FastScions.Com - Home
NOPI- Official NOPI Custom and Performance Auto Parts Since 1966
Custom xB- CustomXB.com - your source for Scion XB aftermarket accessories, parts and Graphics
Oznium (makes good LED stuff)- LEDs - flexible LED strips, LED modules, 12v LEDs
Meng Motorsport- Meng Motorsports - The Leader In Scion Performance Intake Exhaust Springs | Plug and Play HID Kits

Also:
http://www.carid.com/
http://www.scosche.com/

I've even gotten some from Cruiser Crap (GREAT, if have anything you want) Cool Crap for your Cruiser!

I'm sure others would also provide other vendors they have dealt with over time.

My, personal, 2 favorites are Sparks and ScionPro.

Welcome!

Many folks here take the time and effort to customize their rides and are also on a budget. For LED strips you can use eBay. Some items I found cheaper and easier on Amazon and you can read user reviews as well. For mechanical items like suspension I'd stick to name brands and reputable stores. There is no one stock answer or no one "go to" place.

Feel free to ask the forum about a particular item, someone (probably more than one) will likely have experience and/or an opinion on it!

Have fun!

Hey hey welcome!
Also I'd mention discounttiredirect.com as an option for good priced wheels and tires.
I've learned a lot reading here in the forum while waiting to get some money! So many things to get :)

Thanks for the help !!! and the links were very helpful.

I'm looking to start small by changing the grill and possibly adding daytime running lights. I will get rims but I think i will wait until the spring.

So for now I want to do little things, grill, lights, spoiler, fog lights and possibly a muffler.

I want to do little things...spoiler...
Read this thread:
http://www.newscionxb.com/135-do-yourself/6369-spoiler-wing-thoughts-insight-diy-tips.html

You can do a search on eBay for a knockoff spoiler, search for "scion xb rear spoiler painted". A number of us on the forum have installed these spoilers ourselves (me too) and are satisfied with the results. Much cheaper than OEM.

A spoiler and wheels will do a lot. Modding is a happy habit. Have fun!

Picked up a lot of stuff from oznium.com and superbrightled.com. Also just ordered (last night and I'm anxiously waiting for) an HID kit from meng motorsports. There are tons of cool things to do to these cars. And the people on this forum rock. You came to the right place.
