Since where I live absolutely sux weather wise... I was forced to pick my car up in the rain and haven't had time to take more pics due to my crazy work schedule. But here are the ones I have so far...





and the '95 eagle talon TSI AWD (turbo awd) that dyno'd at 247 AWHP and 253f/lbs of torque I sold after doing a custom body kit and paint and alot of engine mods...



Hope you like the talon... but I hope you like the tC more... cause I do! I'll post more pics as I get them!

Thanks. I've had the car for 3 weeks now, so thats why i have plates. I was mad that they drilled holes in the front bumper, so I bitched and they're going to fix it for free. The law in NY is you have to have a front plate, but that law is going away january 1st 2005. i'm never going to put the front plate on this car... i'm not worried about getting pulled over... LOL... I know alot of cops.

Hmm... my dealer also said they would plug up my holes... I took it down to them last week to have it done and the guy who was supposed to do it said it would not look clean because they had carelessly drilled the holes. I choose not to do it... at lease the sales guy said he would order me some special factory scion license plate holders. Hope they come in soon.

Good luck with your holes...

Thanks. My sales guy said that if it couldn't be fixed they would replace the whole front bumper since the damage took place before I took delivery. Its law that if you're not happy with the car, or if there is any damage to the car before you take delivery, its on the dealerships shoulders to fix it and make the car pefect. Of course only with new cars.

I was thinking of getting them to replace the bumper... but then again... I figured I would have to attach my front plates some day... (in cali). I can live with it... I guess.

Yeah, I have my "permanent plates" on my car too, and I even had those before I pulled off the lot. Kinda' sucks though...my first new car and no 30-day tags to show off. Hehe.

Oh well...now I just have to decide on what I REALLY want on my plates and make it happen.

Hey, thanks. Yeah, I love the color. I truely had no choice, but even if I did, I think I would have gone with the super white. It adds a touch of class to the car that I really like. Its rather a pain to keep clean, but I used to detail cars for a local BMW dealership, so this is nothing new to me. I love washing my car! I've always had a soft spot for white cars... This is my first brand new car, and I am paying for it for 5 years...... I plan on it looking as close to brand new after those 5 years as possible.

wow, you went from an awd turbo talon, to the tC, that's definitely says something about the car. The talon is known as an awesome performer, and you gave it up for the tC. Pretty cool.

Hey man. Yeah, I got mine at west herr. David was the sales guy I dealt with. From what david told me there are only 8 in buffalo so far.... not many... and one of those 8 was in an accident right infront of my store at maple and transit today. So now there are 7 in the area. I'm from williamsville. We should meet up sometime for a photo shoot or something!

the tC I saw get in a wreck was totalled. And to be honest, it didn't look like it stood up very well. The guy driving the tC rear ended a camry (go figure) and the hood was practically a tent, the fenders were completely rolled in and the front axle must have been busted cause the wheel was gone! I'm not sure how it happened, I just heard the squeels and then crash! Not cool. And next, my name is Rob. If you wanna meet up sometime call my cell phone at 716-510-8053. Its always on. So if you wanna drive a tC cause you're antsy to get yours, give me a shout! And yes, the lot boy drilled holes in my front bumper. I'd call david and make sure they don't put one on! oh yeah, and when you call him, ask him about my exhaust i'm stilllllllllllllllllllllllll waiting for!

Call them 10 times... show up 2 hours earlier than scheduled so that you can get to your car before it gets into the hands of mindless detailers/prep guys.

I called my dealer the day before... when the cars came in and told him specifically not to drill holes in my bumper... but when I went to pick up the car... the mindless detailer drilled them anyways...
