My New Car!! - May 15, 2008, 09:24 AM

So I traded in my BMW yesterday after having increasing electrical problems with it.

And I bought this

http://www.koons.com/new-inventory/v...seHistory=true

I got a great deal from my good friend Anthony Southern at Koons. Anthony works at Koons Ford in Sterling, but he helped me out at the Koons Scion Dealer along with a salesman named George. Sticker was 33,000, but I got it for 23, 400.

I already raced an M3 on my way to work this morning. Needless to say he crushed me, but I blame it on the temp tags.

nice new wheels Adrian!!

Fack the electrical issues with the BMW's..... every time I honked the horn the radio would turn off. When I honked the horn one other time, the airbag light went off....
If I flashed the highbeams, the radio would turn off then on.


Wow. Just..................wow.

Are you serious?!? I was thinking of picking up a BMW. But this just scares me.

Congrats on the new car! What's the HP on a SC Tc anyway?!?

It was a used car when we bought it and I could swear that it was used for autocross.... probably wasn't put back together properly.

BUT- even with my new one that I bought years ago....it had tail light issues.

Sounds like a fun car, make sure you obey the break-in period. Glad you got it for 24K, 33K is ludicrous for a scion Tc that starts around 16 with a 4k supercharger install.
