sorry, but every scion i have driven sounded like complete garbage with an exaust, and honestly were very very slow for what they are. And you will definetly miss the handling that you no longer have. I dunno i honestly like the focus better by quite a bit. The only upgrade i see here is in the interior and the fact that the car is newer. :(

Well have fun with the TC, they are pretty nice cars. As for the above statement of "slow" WELL at 161hp and 162tq and still only weighs 2,905lbs I'd say its pretty fast for what it is.

My only issue with the TC is I see them modified WAY to much for it to be anywhere near original. I'm not bashing, don't take it that way I just like my focus being one of the VERY FEW modded foci' around here.

have you ever driven one? i know on paper they're not bad but really they dont seem it. maybe its because in the focus you "feel" like your going fast, maybe the scion is just too refined for me :p who knows. i was just sayin my personal opinion that i did not enjoy driving them at all. But anyway good luck with the car man hope you like it and dont be afraid to post on FF still! of course everyone still wants to hear from you!

Yea I have driven one but it was not stock, it had basic boltons (CAI, Race header, Catback) it sounded like crap as you stated also LOL. It seemed fast to me coming from my SPI at the time and even now they beat me in straight lines, I don't race much but I do like to jump the chance with cars I have not run.

Honestly I love the tc's, but my family has always had toyota's, so I might be a little biased [;)] , I think when done right, they are awesome, plus at least in our area there is only like one or two modded ones which makes them a pretty unique, plus they look really good. Nice choice can't wait to see it with a few upgrades! [headbang]

my buddy has one and his sounds great. it is also fun to drive with the right suspension and the only thing i didnt like was the clutch but then again the car had 50 miles when i drove it.
