Howdy, i'm getting my TC on Friday, BCP, TRD Exhaust, Pedistal Spoiler, Floormats, and the Stero with the Ipod controls... My question is, the car I bought was a base model on the lot, that I optioned to my specs, only thing is the $270 Ipod Stereo is going to cost $225 Labor to install the wires from the radio to the center consoled, I thought they were put in from factory and hooked up?
Can I do it myself?
It seems like just afew wires, maybe even one?
Other then that everything is great, they said I can install the TRD Exhaust myself and it wont void the warranty
i just find it weird...

Hold it, fiream !!!


That's how most of the SCION's are anyway. I bought a base car (with the side airbags installed from the plant) and then had the iPod radio, spoiler, wheel locks, etc installed. The radio that came with the base car was already there.

I did not have to pay any installation for any of these and you should not either !!! They should not charge you anything if you order these accessories when you made your purchase.

I'd say that you back out and talk to them about this or ask another dealers about this.

Good luck !!!

I could be wrong, because I didn't get the iPod option (didn't even get the '06 radio, but that's getting taken care of), but I think that Samsingha is right in saying that you shouldn't have to pay extra to have it installed. It doesn't come installed from the factory, so they have to do it at the dealership, but I don't think they're allowed to charge for installation.

Yeah when I ordered mine it came with none of the parts I ordered for it... ped spoiler, ground effects, fog lights. They made an appointment for me this week to bring my car in and they are putting all that stuff on with no charge. So I don't think they should charge you for the labor.

all the 06 cars are supose to have the option, theres a jack in the center console, but it you wanna control the ipod throught the radio u need the upgrade stereo if not you use the ipod itself, so I dont know what there pulling, I told them to put the radio in so I can use it and i'll get the ipod hookup installed later...

Oh, the GFX will cost you 6 hours of labor, well thats what my dealer told me... As far as the Spoiler fog light, the labor is preworked into the price....

I have an '06 tC which I just picked up last Wednesday. As mentioned before, it came with the standard stereo. I told them I wanted the iPod stereo and it was installed without charge.

My sales person told me they would have to open up the center console to install the wiring but that was part of the $260.

If you have the standard '06 stereo, you can access the aux hook up which is inside the arm rest.

Hrmmm, that sucks! Are you guys sure that when they put the ground effects on they charge you for labor? The guy just called me today to tel me that the parts have arrived and that I could bring it in tomorrow... he didn't mention anything about labor costs.

I would try another dealer, Fiream. If a car dealer doesn't want to work with you, there's always competition from across town who'll probably want your business a bit more.

your getting ripped off there. don't buy from them. if there is no other dealer, don't have it installed, you can always have it done elsewhere. i personally wouldnt reccomend the ipod upgrade at all, but if you want it, don't get it there.
