hello... ! I'm Michael, 24 and i'm originally from Philly but i'll be relocated down to DC for work in about 2 weeks. So I needed a car and i've been eyein the tC ever since i saw the press releases at a toyota dealership. it was love at first sight!! i actually don't have my tC yet. I ordered it on Sept. 1 and it arrived at the dealer on Sept 29.. but the dealer needed a few days to send it to a 3rd party to get my leather installed and to put my other options in.

it's 5:30am right now.. i've spent a lot of time on this forum the past couple of days and i love it. I've learned a hell of a lot thanks to many of the informed members
.

I need to call my dealer tomorrow to get the VIN so i can take care of my insurance (btw i got State Farm for Virginia, full tort 50/100/50 @ $103/month) and hopefully he'll be kind enough to let me know that my tC is ready for pick up too.

there's a tC gathering in Philly next sunday... i think im gonna go.. supposed to be huge!!!...
should be fun... anyways.. hello all.
i'll definitely post pics of my tC soon.. even though i don't have many cool mods like everyone else

Congrats, Michael! I'm sure you'll love your tC even more once you see it, sit in it, and drive it.
What color did you get?

THANKS!!! i got silver streak mica, black leather, floor mats and wheel locks from the dealer... i plan on getting my windows tinted after i relocate and maybe the LED tail lights if they look nice and fog lights if i can find some nice lookin aftermarket ones..

seeing everyone's nice car makes me wanna do a lot more mods though... but money is an issue and i'm not a gearhead so i wouldn't trust myself to install anything too involved mechanically...

... i called my dealer today.. he said my car will be back from the leather shop today and then he needs to put it into service to get my wheel locks and security system put in (I THOUGHT IT SHOULD ALREADY HAVE IT IN THERE???).. so he said tomorrow unless they get it done early...
I'VE WAITED SO LONG!! IT'S SO CLOSE.. YET SO FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'(

I was thinking about getting leather.... now I really wish I would have... but then I would have had to wait 3 more days... Oh well, I can get it at any time....

Well, look on the bright side -- next year you guys will have a crappy baseball team that loses to the Braves 15 times a year! =)

Yea. The Phillies did pretty well this year.
They were picked by pretty much everyone to win the division, but...hey, they didn't.
