guys,
I am having the best time of my life. I came to usa 3 years ago. I finished grad school and finally got a job. I wanted to get a car and researched like mad. But when a friend told me abt, Tc I checked out the website and man, whoa, I fell in love with it.
I just got TC Flint Mica 5-Speed manual. Right now I dont have any money for extra options. I almost bought the rear spoiler but decided against it as it ruins the classy look of my car. I ordered security system and a leather shift knob for now.

Anyways, Please welcome to the family of proud Scion TC owners. I hope to pimp this beauty real soon. I could use some help in the coming days regarding this.

Have fun guys....
Raj

Welcome. You shouldn't have bought the Scion Security, it is very weak. With the money you would've saved, you coulda had a very reliable Viper Security System.

Hope you enjoy your tC for years!

Well you will be at least the third person on this forum who bought a 5-speed tC and never drove a stick before
Takes time to learn, but it's very rewarding.

Hi guys,
Sorry I have been away for a long time. I have been putting in too many hours at work. The stupid snow in Syracuse didn't allow me to ride much in my Scion. However I should say I enjoyed driving in the slick and slippery roads and on the thruway with snow coming down hard. I guess its more fun to be messing with mother nature than to sit home and complain.

Anyways, the other day I went to starbuck on my campus and I found another Scion TC parked on the side. At first I felt very angry that someone else has the same sweet ride as I did. I even thought of keying that car somehow. But I know I can never do that to a Scion TC. Can I? Can you? no you cant.

I jumped out of the car, in the middle of the road and managed to take a picture of my baby with its cousin. LOL. Its a very rare sight to find two scions, much less the same color. Here is the picture. Hope ya all like it.

I think your pictures capture the essence of what flint mica really looks like more than any I've seen before.
