    Has anyone has someone else install a security system besides a dealer. Does this cause warranty problems?

    If you get it done properly by a good installer, you should have no problems. AFAIK none of the Scions has any type of "pass key" or "security key" system so you can get a remote starter (if you have an auto tranny) install along with the alarm for not much extra.

    Does anyone have either or both. I have a dog, would the liner be more beneficial. Any suggestions on a good place to buy tc accessories?

    Definitely the liner if it goes up the sides. Your dog will destroy the side panels if he puts his paws up to look out. They scratch really easily on my Scion. The mat doesn't protect the sides.

    Thanks. That's what I thought. Any ideas on where to order one besides the dealer. I can find the cargo mat, but not the liner?

    You have a tC, right?

    Places like:

    All sell Scion OEM accessories and parts at a discount. I got some stuff from Scionpartspeople a while back - they were the cheapest including shipping for what I wanted.

    Here is the liner for $71.50 plus shipping

    I am not sure it covers the sides - you might call to ask. It covers the backs of the folded rear seats.

    Man! I could of took my old xA's cargo liner before giving the dealer the car. I could of used it in the new tC. What a waste of $100.00's since CarMax threw it out. It wasn't in the xA when I stopped and visit the car when they were reselling it.
  • i put 17's on and dont have a problem and 18's will mess up ur speedo

    Don't put on a turbo until your warranty expires, or you'll lose it.


  • Has anyone installed a 10.2" ceiling-mount DVD player in a 08 xB?
    Can you still see the back on the rearview mirror?
    I am looking at Audiovox Shuttle system from Bestbuy and Circuitcity, but I don't know if it will block the rearview.
  • Just the floor mats, and XM.

    Can anyone tell me where to get suicide door kits for a 2007 scion tc ? my e-mail is Thanks!
  • Just bought my xD 4 days ago and looking to find mud flaps...local auto parts and on luck...anybody know where I can find some?
  • dwynnedwynne Posts: 4,018
    I don't think they make any for the xD (yet).

  • I need to know the size of the stock door speakers in the xb, I want to upgrade them.
  • dwynnedwynne Posts: 4,018
    Simple, just go to Crutchfield and put in a 2008 xB and it will tell you what fits where. Looks to be 6 1/2" in the front doors, same as the gen 1 xBs.

    I think you also have to be careful (like the 1st gen) if you just replace the front door speakers since the dash mount "tweeters" are wired in parallel with the front door mid-range speakers. You will either want to disconnect the factory "tweeters" or replace both the sets with a component set of speakers. If you just replace the door speakers the sound is not likely to improve and the resulting impedance load for the stereo may be bad for it.

    In the 1st gen xBs the door speakers are riveted in place, if the 2nd gen is the same you will have to drill out the rivets (be sure to wear safety glasses) and get an adapter pair or make some from MDF. If you order from Crutchfield they will include the adapters and speaker wire harnesses (no cutting) for free with the speaker purchase. I am partial to Polk components, and you can find them a lot cheaper (normally) on fleabay than Crutchfield and buy the adapters and still come out ahead. Can't return them for a full refund if you don't like then like you can at Crutchfield, however.

  • I want to retain my OEM Pioneer receiver and upgrade the door speakers as well as add tweeters and a subwoofer. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  • dwynnedwynne Posts: 4,018
    If you are sticking with the OEM stereo and not adding an amp, then you need something efficient.

    I would probably go with some component speakers - put the mids in the doors in the place of the factory speakers and try the tweeters in the dash in place of the factory speakers. Or you would surface/flush mount the tweeters in the doors or even in the a-pillars.

    I am partial to Polk components, so I would look at the db series - the new db5251 set is 93db. Bostons sound good too, but they are normally a bit less efficient. You should go listen and see what you like.

  • any one here order the dealer option armrest? I think it list for $129, the other option I was curious about is the overhead console, is it worth it?
