Hey there!
Bought a 2013 10series xB in September with a 5 speed; had the TRD lowering springs put in, rear spoiler and anti-sway bar.. so far I love it and I can't wait to start customizing it (as much as my warranty will allow for...)
Basically I'm here for ideas and experiences with different wheels, stereos, and exterior mods.. I'm thinking about ordering the JL box/sub that fits in the back, does anyone have any experience with these?
Also want to up my wheel size, the wheel wells are huge so I'm curious if 18s will fill them or if im better off going to 19s?? Would love some feedback... thanks!
Oh, the name's Jenn!

They come on when I unlock it or open the doors.. the dash lighting up is my favorite, it comes on at the same time also when I turn on the lights. The shifter knob is solar powered and lights up too :)

Oh don't mind how filthy it is... good old west coast winter!
Welcome Jenn! You'll find all kinds of customizing ideas here. One area you may want to explore is LED lighting, especially since our interior is rather dimly lit. Also it's not very expensive if you get LEDs from eBay. Another source for ideas is the DIY forum and this thread:

Have fun!
Thanks I'll check it out!
Come one down here . . . opposite corner of North America.

Since the end of January:
Cold enough to make sap-cicles, but no snow or ice (today).
May snow Thursday (current forecast)
70s this weekend.
Yuck ... don't know about you but we've been having an abnormally cold/wet/snowy "spring". It can stop any time now! I want to put new wheels on get it together mother nature!
The weather here is starting to look up. We got an ice storm / slush storm a couple days ago but its supposed to hit 60 on Friday and stay near the 50s for the upcoming week.

If all goes well I'm getting a new bike on Thursday :D

Look at the bright side, it's March now so the warm weather IS coming.
Bike sounds fun! I have a need for speed so I avoid them... I like my license too much. What kind of bike??

Im definitely looking forward to some warmer weather. Even just dry
Sounds like fun either way! (The bikes) my ex had an 04 CBR 600f4i.. it was quick. I liked it till I dropped it hard and crushed myself lol I stick to 4 wheels now ;)
I love the ignition silver on the xb.. it hides dirt well and has some nice tones to it. Needs some black accents though.. going to start blacking it out asap. Ive been looking for just the right wheels for it.. typically I like black wheels but im leaning towards white or gold now. I love gold mesh wheels on old corollas so im curious what that scheme would look like on the box.

Might be rollin throuh GP this summer to visit my bro in FSJ, I used to live in GP. Maybe a cruise will be in order!
