    Personally I agree with you. I see no appeal in them,
    the bB (xB) came before the Element in Japan

    Personally, I kinda like the looks of the xB. I wouldn't drive one, but it could be a pimped out little cruiser van. haha.

    17 grand... hah, id get an SRT for the 2g extra

    I see your reasoning here based on a performance standpoint. But you have to realize that the tC is a totally different car. Consider the differences and overall value over the srt-4;

    Japanese car
    Toyota quality/reliability
    Toyota fit & finish

    Air Conditioner
    Power Windows (with one-touch up/down on driver & passenger window w/ pinch protection)
    Power Door Locks with Remote Entry
    Power Outside Mirrors
    Panorama Moonroof with Power Slide/Tilt Front Glass Panel and Dual Manual Sunshades
    Rear Window Defogger
    Digital Clock
    Dual Power Points
    Outside Temperature Gauge
    Tilt-Steering Wheel
    Tachometer and Trip Meter
    Sport Front Bucket Seats with Fabric Upholstery and Driver's Seat Adjustable Height and Thigh Support
    Cruise Control
    Cargo Area Storage
    Driver's Seat One-Touch Walk-In w/ Track and Seat Angle Memory
    Reclining 60/40 Split Folding Rear Seat
    Rear Window Shading
    Driver and Passenger Sun Visor Mirror w/ Cover
    Hard Cargo Cover
    Amber Instrument Panel Illumination
    Exterior Features
    17" Alloy Wheels
    Multi-Reflector Auto-off Halogen Headlamps
    Side Mirrors with Turn Indicators
    Variable Intermittent Front Wipers
    Chrome Exhaust Tip
    Audio
    Pioneer AM/FM/CD Head Unit (MP3 and Satellite controller capable)
    Scion Sound Processing
    6-Speakers (including 2 tweeters)
    Rear Fender-Mount Antenna
    Safety Features
    Driver and Passenger Front Airbags*
    Driver Knee Airbag*
    Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS)
    Driver and Passenger 3-Point Seat Belts
    Anti-Lock 4-Wheel Disc Brakes
    Three-Across Rear Head Restraints
    3-Across 3-Point Rear Seat Belts
    First Aid Kit


    All for $16,500. I dare you to find a car that comes close. I agree 100% the srt-4 is THE BEST performance/dollar value on the market today, but the first 3 reasons on the list should be enough to justify the price point between the two cars. You could also look at it as the Celica vs SRT-4. Both the same price, both the same features. The Celica is a far better car, but it doesnt hold a candle to the Dodge in terms of performance.
    If I was in the market now for a fast performance car to race with, I'd buy the SRT-4. If I wanted a car that was fun to drive, comfortable, sporty, reliable, crammed with standard features, that I could keep for 6 years and 180,000 miles with no problems, I would pic the tC. Apples & oranges.

    Yo

    I agree, SRT4 is the "best bang for buck" but the Dodge quality speaks for itself. It's comparing two totally different things.
    2004 STI White/Gold
    251whp & 263ft/lbs ( Stock ): 0-60 = 4.8 ( Fastest = 4.1 ) & 1/4 = ?
    276whp & 290ft/lbs ( DP ): 0-60 = 4.5 & 1/4 = 12.9 @ 105mph

    If we are going to compare this car at the same price, it would have to be compared to the Neon SXT (still a 4 door). At that point which one would you choose.

    might toss our 00 Beetle 1.8t for this car.

    You better believe us Celica owners aren't too happy about it, either. But the Celi will always handle better and look better. So... there.

    LOL...maybe, maybe not. As of what I heard, the tC was suppose to be the replacement in other market for the Celica. Don't know if it's true or rumor tho.

    The Celica certainly isn't as popular as when it first came out, especially now with the NASTY front and rear ends on the new ones. The tC is just a MUCH better value than a Celica overall... and because of that, the Celica will eventually be dropped. Toyota's been selling that car since the 70s, and it's in it's 7th generation. I don't see it lasting much longer, especially now when a new Celica is more pricey than an SRT-4.

    even if most people in this forum say there ugly, and i agree, obviously not everyone feels the same. I see these suckers everywhere and sooner than later they will be all over.
