And the fancy looking TRD body kit, one of the few things I actually really like about this car.

So, why do Scions get special colors and the Subaru don't? I assume they are built on the same line so there goes Subarus typical EPA / limited palette choices excuse.

Car manufacturers sure do love to come up with these tacky "performance" packages, so I guess someone must be buying them?

I still dig the burnt orange color on the Scions.

Regardless, the twins don't baby seat so I won't be getting one for a while. OTOH perfect project car for when the little guy is 15

If moderating NASIOC wasn't bad enough, here are some twins. Wow.

I have a feeling there are a lot of spoiled teenagers throwing tantrums right now, wishing that they had waited.

Love:
- push button start
- TRD rear spoiler
- yellow
- TRD shifter and steering wheel (assuming that is included)
- Springs

Not crazy about, but OK:
- TRD front, side, and rear skirts (little too aggressive with the yellow, IMO)
- TRD exhaust

Dislike:
- Fender garnish. The 86 one looks so much better.

From the Long Beach Grand Prix...

Looks like they took the 1.0 and added a few extra bits. Doesn't match up to the pic on the website minus the color/body kit.

I don't see the black mirrors either.... Black mirrors on yellow I would have liked that. Its too bad this isn't a standard color though, would look great without the bodykit.

Yeah, I could do yellow or the kit. Both is a bit brash for me.

I think the crazy color would be more tolerable if the car was faster. A brightly colored Lotus or Porsche is acceptable but I dunno about this. The rest I like, well except for the quad tips.
