I put on some gloss black Scion badges today I could also see the Toyota sombrero outline underneath, so Carvana must have swapped them back. They also left some nice gouges on the front bumper. Idiots

Thank you man I appreciate it!. And yeah just whenever I hit bumps on the road. Kinda giving me a bit of anxiety when I'm driving it around now lol I'm very cautious looking out for pot holes. I might raise it up just a bit in the future but for now I like how it sits

Yes, my wife and were in the car and had just parked. It was cool to see the Bumper just folding up Eeek!! I was laying on the horn. He heard it before the hood was crunched. It was a no win situation...

Iíve already had to use the horn on my car more than any other. Asphalt Gray doesnít help either. All I can say is, thank God most cars have blind spot monitoring now. To help keep the idiots from hitting us. Lol

Thatís a great thing about coilovers! You can raise it a little for some peace of mind. It looks great flush like that. I know pretty much every pothole in my area, and I try to avoid them like the plague.

Dude that really sucks, Iím sorry Iíve been in that situation also, laying on the horn in a panic hoping the person backing up wakes up and stops. Iím glad it was at a slow speed and you are both ok. It is pretty amazing how modern cars absorb impacts. But we donít want our 86ís and BRZs to go through that. Get her fixed good as new, on that persons insurance.

Thanks man! I ordered them from an EBay seller, Quality-Auto-Parts I think. They are probably not OEM Scion badges since they are molded in gloss black. But they turned out great, easy install with 3M tape on the back and the little guide pins. Not bad for $20

Nice mods. -

However, not to be all lecturish, but, I would suggest you crank the coilovers up a notch or two, just in case you hit a swale on the highway -

3Ē catted combo. Works really well with my catback (CSG Touring). Really quiet when idling and cruising, but has a nice sound when going WOT!

Doesn't even have to be all that big as I found out when I took the company truck parked next to my car. Even bright orange is damn near invisible if parked or located in the wrong place. It gave me a whole new perspective when people do what seems dumb around me.
anybody much shorter than me would not even know the car was there.

Picked up a ceramic coating the other day. I will be taking time on my vacation to do a correction before coating it in preparation for winter.
