2008 Scion xB Special Release 5.0

I was at the Toyota/Scion dealership today with my father (he's looking for a Rav4) and saw one of the xB S.R. 5.0 models. So I had to look them up when I got home and...I freakin love it! I love the uniqueness of the vehicle, the interior and the paint! My only gripe is the fact it comes with steel wheels (on a special edition none the less) but then again, I prefer steel wheels to alloys in the winter.

On to the pics!




(This unfortunately is not the S.R.5.0 interior, which has some color-matched dash pieces, unique seats and a badge listing the build number.)

Anyway, let me know what you think!

I keep trying to like those things, but just can't do it. I do see the appeal though. It's just not my taste.

i just threw up in my mouth. why is there absolutely no symetry in the interior? even the bumper isnt symetric.....
Scion is F'n trash. and the TC's are purely a chick's car. sorry for the harsh opinion, but its kinda true.

Um, idk what to say, the color is actually pretty hidieous, looks like puke and I still can't get over the single reverse lamp on the drivers side read bumper. Maybe you just like it cause you got waffles on the brain...thats basically the color of it.

The Aztec, Element, Scion, Beetle, PT Cruiser, HHR. I just don't understand! I was a Designer for 32 years in Ford Heavy Truck and feel that we put better design into our heavy trucks than these! They look like kids toys blown up in size! IMHO!
