Well I have had my xB for a few months now...bought it in mid October. It is a great little car and I have just begun to mod it. Here is what I have done so far:
  • K&N short ram intake
  • Borla dual exhaust
  • Trailer hitch (towed my Harley home from Omaha 1200 mile trip)
  • Tanabe DF 210 springs
  • 20x 8.5 + 35 Stance TC5 wheels
  • Billet upper and lower grills
  • Small Pinstriping on the hood (plan on slightly more)
  • Temp and Volt gauges
  • Scion leather wrap wheel (e-bay score!)
Upcoming mods:
  • stereo upgrade (Amp, Sub and Seperates ; Big three and dedicated amp feed)
  • Interior Lighting
  • Bespoke Navigation add to my existing touch screen
  • back up camera: I hope to figure out how to integrate this into existing touch screen or change rear view mirror with a combo unit.
  • Complete sound deadning, doors roof floors
  • Painted brake calipers/ rotors
  • Clazzio seat covers and matching door inserts
  • sunroof???
  • Possible exterior lighting (wheel wells and undercarrige)

To be honest, that is a mod I am still in progress on. I bought Autometer gauges in carbon fiber pods and they are installed just above the steering wheel. I have spliced the wires into the existing lighting harness and and a switched IGN power source. The Volt gauge works great, but the last peice of the puzzle is that temp sending unit adapter. On Saturday I plan to cut it into the upper radiator hose. I will definately take pics of the install. Personally I don't think getting the air out of the system will be much of a problem....I hope.

Yes, I haven't decided yet on whether to buy the Seibon carbon fiber one, the e-bay color matched one or leave it off. My girfriend's car has it and about 15 others around me have it, so I am leaning towards not running one. BTW the girlfreind's is an 08 blackberry crush...TRD exhaust and wing...for Christmas I gave her billet grills and an orange swirl shift knob. I'll have to get pics of her car... if I can get her to clean it...lol

As far as the hitch goes, I used it prior to the drop, but I did tow a trailer on these wheels/tires. I think if I tow again I will add the "helper" air springs inside my coils. also, this hitch still gets use from my bicycle rack occasionally. That's why I kept it on there.
