I know everyone is probably sick and tired of people asking what color tc to get, but I thought I would ask anyways. I have narrowed it down to a few things...please help!

1. Flint mica w/the ground effects and the pedestal spoiler, TRD exhaust and springs
OR
2. Super White w/the lip spoiler, TRD exhast and coilovers (I saw the super white w/the ground effects and for some reason the grey seal that connects to the body bugs me...but if you have one let me know if its not that bad)

Also, Im a little worried that the tc is going to be too slow....Im going from a VR6 Jetta to this. On the test drive I didnt really get on the gas that much, because I didnt want to scare the poor sales guy...but let me know. THanks!!!!!

slow is all relative, v-6 and 4-cylinders offer different feels. take a test drive again if youre iffy, its money saved if it changes your mind. as far as color, you make the payments so its your choice, but my vote is for super white. not because i dont like flint mica, but u might be looking at a little more attention to detailing your car with the darker colors.

if you really want fast, you probably want a different car or spend a bunch for engine upgrades
No..I dont need a really fast car...Im just hoping that the tC isnt slow....is everyone happy with its performance?

Go for what you like. I personnally dont like the flint mica one. its like a black dirty color. There is one here where I work and it always looks dirty to me. Even when its just been washed. The SW on the other hand looks awesome, and with a good tint job looks even better.

Poor FM tC... I think FM is the deepest color that I've seen on a car.. yeah, I'm talking about when it's clean -- I mean really clean. I just washed mine today.. when I walk up to it in a parking lot, it looks almost black on the doors, and sparkles in the sun on top.. it just looks SO GOOD.

but, that's just another opinion!

the tc isn't "slow" (at least when the ac is off). to put it more in perspective, going form a 1.5 liter honda civic this thing is a rocket.

i had a vr6 jetta (97) and it was a piece of crap. it broke down all the time and it only had like 50,000 miles on it. the tc is a very fun car to drive. i test drove the crap out of an automatic and it FLEW for only a 4spd. it was very torquey
then i test drove a manual and man 2nd gear is a blast, just as fun if not more than my jetta.

That is really good to hear that its just as fun as the VR6...I love third gear in that car..its a blast! I think Im going to be really happy with the tC...now all I have to do is wait, wait, wait...should be here in 6 weeks!

The tC is plenty quick, and lots of fun to drive. In my opinion, the tC just looks and feels more well-built than the Jetta, and you know the reliability is much better. The Jetta VR6 is not exactly a street rocket, either.

Yah alot of the dealerships around here have plenty of scions...but for some reason they are all automatic! I really wanted to make sure I ordered the one I really wanted, and with everything already done to it. So I am having it custom made from the factory...takes a little bit longer but it will arrive finished! (that is until the supercharger comes out and I convince my boyfriend to help me pay for it
)
