I think the whole idea is to prevent rattles..now and in the future. The time and care would be worth it so you won't be complaining later.
2 grand for one plastic piece but there are hundreds of plastic pieces on the car that adds up quick. So why spend money when you don't have to? tshirts and keychains cost little to nothing to make. Cost 5.00 (if that) to make a t-shirt they can sell for 15.99. Thats over 100% profit. Even if they give them away, thats advertising right there. Wear a Scion t-shirt and hundreds of people each day read that. It takes one word for people to go searching. Thats how I found tC not by radio but somebody had a shirt on and I was like what is scion and i did a google search found the car, 6 months later I am buying that car. So toyota made money off a 5.00 tshirt.well if scion is worried about 2 grand for a plastic piece then they should stop making tshirts and keychains, and that stupid magazine they put out.[/b]
