Why not just go aftermarket coilover?

I'm guessing someone will install some random coilovers/suspension just for "a drop" well before a properly researched and developed system will be available. I doubt stock ones will fetch much money so it seems worthwhile if it's a noticable difference for very little investment.

I doubt the price tag will be that high. If it ever did then Scion shot themselves in the foot with this.

I see. Yeah, that's the cheaper way, and I'm sure there are many people willing to trade with you.

Wow 25k? for the base FRS? And I still dont get hids with DRl's and dual zone Hvac and push start?

I am just saying Scion bring it...go big! Either have two models like Subaru and Toyota or make one model cheap and allow us to add all the options we want.

But if you oh great scion are going to price the base model at $25k and it is stripped like what you have shown so far...your done.

Not sure you will be able to sell the original tires for "a lot".

Yeah no kidding. It's ridiculous. We've lost the ability to actually wait and to actually handle current events that we can only speculate about the future while ignoring the present.

I wouldn't worry about "Speculated" pricing that C&D and others are listing. They honestly don't know so they're ball-parking it. It's easy to say 20K,25k or 30k, nice round numbers, if you say 23k or 24k, it comes off sounding a little too specific. Although I don't know why automobile magazine said $24,500 estimated...do they know something?

i would say it comes in a 23-24k . Any more than this and they're charging a premium on it themselves.
