I'll take pics of the aftermarket leather and stuff tomorrow...

Went and got it Krown sprayed....and put on the Tiburon's old winter tires on it.

Epic snowstorm in Toronto today.

You need to put the Joshua Tree logo (in black) on the roof, with the side rubber as the " frame" of the tree.
No other logos-> U2 w/o being blunt!

Ok. I'm loving the car.

NEVER BUY A CAR IN CANADA IN THE WINTER. THE SNOW AND SALT WILL HAVE YOU DEPRESSED.

I just bought some Weather Tech floor mats for the xB. The rubber ones that come with the car weren't really cutting it. I put a towel under the rubber ones to soak up any snow. Geeze....what a mess Toronto is right now.

I managed to change the map lights to some bright LEDs. I tried to change the dome light, but the festoons I bought were too big. I ordered some 27mm ones instead. The ones I got were 30mm and were too big. I didn't bother changing the trunk one since I figured it would be the same size.

I don't like how the dome light is very dim.

The dealer didn't install the licence plate frame so I did that yesterday. The plate was just on the bumper. In Ontario, you have to also have a front license plate :(.

I also changed all of the wiper blades. The ones that came with the car just didn't quite cut it in the winter time here.

My only disappointment is the intermittent wipers. There's intermittent, then normal, then fast. I would have liked to have an adjustment for changing the intermittent timing.

I have LEDS for the license plate lights, but I haven't gotten to doing that yet either.

Loving the stereo although I can't get music to play off of a USB stick yet.

Also loving the bluetooth function for calls. Very pro.

I'm currently looking into a Webasto sunroof......probably spoiler style.

TartanJack, these were the logos that I had on my Tiburon at the back. My new logos will be in white and placed somewhere on the back window.


I ordered the Achtung Baby U2, Bono's caricature, and the Zooropa Spacebaby pictured here.



I probably choose one or two of them and put them up on the window.

I feel ya about the winter, in the salt belt too, wanna cry.

Theres all kinds of interior leds to try, ive gone through tons to see which ive liked. All are white though.

Sunroof? Yeh good luck. Lots of discussion on here over the summer about em. Hada webasto on my 08. It was a strainer built sub... Even after dealer alignment n such. But that was my experience.

None of us like the wiper either. Some have done the prius switch. From what ive seen, it's pretty plug n play.

Cool.

The wiper is easily fixed. The one from several other Toyotas are a direct replacement. You, literally, remove the covers, get to the stalk base, unplug the present stalk, install the other one with more intermittent options.

I did mine, in about 15 minutes, while my son practiced baseball this past summer. I was in a grass field. It really IS easy. The hardest part is getting all the panels back on.

I never asked the dealer. Found a Toronto installer via the Webasto website.
