So I been looking at the new xB. I kinda like the old one, but this one I love. Haven't gotten to test drive it yet. Was going to today but was snowing and really didn't want to test drive in the snow. I may still go tomorow and check one out in person.

I gotta get rid of my ride. Its a 2000 VW Jetta. Got a VR6 and about 200hp with mods. The car is hot and I love it, but its showing its age, and would love to have a warrenty right about now. Plus the cost of premium gas is killing me.

Having trouble convicing the wife to be that I need a new ride. I got the details worked out and its not gonna hurt the wallet much, but with the upcoming wedding she is kinda skeptical.

So basically I joined the forum so I can get some info on the car and chat to some owners. If anyone is havin a 08xb get together in PA sometime soon let me know. I would love to stop buy and meet some owners and check out the rides.

Also one questions I got. Whats the deal with the Yellow xB???? I see it in advertisments everywhere, and even have it in a photo as my wallpaper. However its not a color choice thats avaliable. Whats the deal? Is it going to be a color option for the 09 model year?

I live in Allentown PA. Went by the local scion dealership and checked them out. Love them. They had silver and blue in stock, but both auto;s. So I didn't test drive(want a five speed) but checked it out and listened to the engine and everything. Definatly want one know. Liked the silver, blue is too dark for me. I was hoping for a brighter blue sorta like the new focus, or subaru. Wanted a bright blue with gold wheels. Right now I am thinking black, maybe silver as a backup. Got an idea for black.

Yes I have to run premium in my VR6 Jetta. Its required by the factory, plus I am running performance chip thats designed for highoctane.

Hopefully I will be getting one of these xB's sometime soon.

Not liking the blue has nothing to do with not liking dark colors. Most of my last few cars have been silver. I have had a couple in black. It definatly looks good when clean. However I don't like Navy blue, I like royal blue. Especially WRB, which is a Subaru specific blue. A nice royal blue with gold rims is amazing. The xB in silver looked nice as well, I just have an nice idea for a cool xB that requires it to be black.
