Got my bonus and sold my boat so now I have some extra $$$ to spend on mods. I have around $3k of play money and the rest is mama pleasing money. So I need some help on what to do next on the B.

Mods Completed:
DF210's
Scion 17's
Memphis 12's and 2 Amps
HID Conversion for Headlights and Fogs
V-LED Dual Color Turn Signal Bulbs

Mods Already Purchased (Yet to be installed)
Oznium Vent Lights
Anzo Halo Headlights (remote controlled)

Now ideas I had on spending the $$$
1. Paint the B Mercedes Benz Deep Black (would be more than $4k but would look sick.
2. Rear Spoiler, 5 Axis Lip Kit, Re-paint hood and bumper (Bug and rock chips), Paint tails. (somewhere around $2500)
3. SNS-200, 5 Axis Lip Kit painted, Rear Spoiler, paint tails (around $3,500)

Any other ideas or combinations?

Not a bad idea. I have always had static drop so not sure how difficult it would be to it myself. I don't trust anyone around here to do it.

The options you are thinking about are cool, but if I had that much to spend I would do more on the performance side. Maybe go crazy and add a supercharger.

Don't get me wrong, I am all about performance but this is my daily and I need to have maximum reliability and gas mileage.

Seat covers
Stereo/speakers
--- If you need the full interior, your could mount a subwoofer either in the spare well or get the Bazooka side-mount specifically designed for the xB2.
Interior lighting (some like, others don't)
Roof rack (adds utility) and accessories to fit your hobbies (camping, skiing, kayaking, boating, biking, or whatever)

I have 2 Memphis 12's in a custom box and 2 Memphis amps. The system is very clean and loud. I like the idea of a roof rack though I haven't actually seen one for sale. Perfect for the surf board!

Calvin - fiberglass doors? I haven't heard that one. What would be the purpose?

Beeen looking at the seat covers. That might be an option. I will be doing more mods on the interior. Lighting is something that will happen. My custom box does have a LED system on it.

Keep em coming. Great ideas.

Pretty much anywhere that sells Yakima racks can set you up.
I got mine from a Toyota/Scion dealer during a show in Charleston, SC. They had ordered one for a customer and has it there for months. I got it "at cost" (maybe). Anyways, it was a decent deal for what it was and the included parts/accessories.

For the xBs, you need 58" wide bars, Q-towers and Q32 clips (if I remember correctly). For surfboards, the "strap thang" would work.
In the Carolinas and Georgia, Half-Moon Outfitters works, as does "The Great Escape" bike shop in South Carolina.

Look for an outdoors show or a bike or surf/watersports shop in your area. That will be a good place to get "quick parts," accessories, and help.
There a HUGE number of on-line places that can help too.

For seat covers, there are 3 directions I'd seriously look into:
-Clazzio covers (as sold through SparksTRD and others). Great for the money, and what I'll probably get myself one day-> black, quilted, red stitching.

-Katzkins-> more expensive, but also VERY nice. There are more color options and ability for customization. (If I were to get these, I'd get red fronts and black backs.)

-One of several brands of wet-proof seat covers, like Wet Okole. Those would be great if you often get in your xB2 after surfing, kayaking, or other water-sport activities.

I was looking at the Clazzio covers and they are nice, but I like the idea of water proof. I will check into the Wet Okole covers. Thanks for your help.

if you get bags, send me your DFs!!! haha

I just got a new headliner and pillars. Id def recommend that dude. It really changes the interior and looks amazing and it's not that expensive either. I paid 100 bucks for my entire interior. headliner and pillars.

That sounds like a good idea too. Where did you go for your stuff?

Well got some great valentines news.... My wife is pregnant! So that means I prolly won't spend quite as much.

Here is what I am doing for now:
Ordered the Rear Spoiler
Ordered the SNS-200
Painting the Tails

I still have the Anzo Halos and the Oznium Vent Lights to install so I should have a fair amount of work on my hands.

How much did the dealer get you for with the sns200? I saw it online yesterday for $849 shipped. I have the 2010 XB and have been looking at that unit.

If your B will be used as family transport, that also dictates come of what you now can and cannot do too.

CONGRATS!!
(I've got 3 myself, the youngest of just over 6 months. WELL worth the sacrifices and sometimes headaches.)

I have seen the SNS-100 for $849 shipped. The lowest I have found the 200 for is $1949. There is a big difference between the two units.

Thanks Guys! I am so excited. Believe it or not this will be my 9th child! Only the second with my new wife. The other 7 children were with my X.

The B will be used for some transporting but the mods I have planned will not be affected by the new addition. That Roof Rack idea is really starting to sound good.
