Got my 06 tC this last Monday. I'm coming from a 02 Mercury Cougar Auto. Needless to say i'm glad i made the switch :)











Factory Lip, Fogs, and a 5speed is all i can think of :p

I'm planning on tinting the rear 5 windows. Probably 20%. Local shop quotes $179 for the job, and they do awesome work, that's where i got my Cougar done. Other than that i've no ideas. I'm open to suggestion though! Maybe a different grill without the scion logo on it...i was looking at those on ebay

I think i'm probably gonna paint the wheels Black + Silver lip, but lowering this car would make it a horrible DD for me haha. Especially where i go to school, i'm terrified for my lip kit.

Nice tc man. I second with the others to get the trd springs on.

$179 seems like a lot for tint, I got my 1st tc done for like $110 for all the windows.

Also I'll suggest a trd rear sway bar if you don't have it already.

Antenna fixed :p My GF's dad is a Ford GM and he found one for an Edge lying around. Who'd have thunk it would have fit? About half the height of the stock.





Tint tomorrow :)

OH! And another question. If anyone happens to know...my car being an 06 Super White...does that mean the paint is "Super White" or "Super White II"?!

I have a spot on my lip kit that i need to touch up and i went to get touch up paint for it but i found Super White and Super White II. It looks to me like there is a difference between the two (if not why would they be different names?) I just know there's about 802730782 kinds of white and i don't want to pick the wrong one.

Help?

I did two seperate searches for color codes and they came up with Super White and Super White II
...problem is both of them said the paint code was 0040.

But where i was buying them they had two different cans, two different codes. I guess i need to go check which code was on which can :/

0040 is your color code. Take it from me though, it will never match the same again. Or at least the actual production color for my car didnt match my car after it had been weathered for 2 years. Lol.

Alright so sticker in the car says the code is 040 and Paintscratch.com says 040 is Super White II so i guess i'll go with that.

WHY ARE THERE SO MANY COLORS OF WHITE?!

Buy Super White II and see if it matches. If not, return it for Super White? I painted my spoiler SW2 and it's slightly a diff. shade.
