I have one...



My plan is to put a really nice stereo in it and drive the piss out of it. At some point i will probably buy a exhaust, intake and tune but, some good sounding jams will come 1st.

A couple weeks ago, on the way to work i smashed a deer in my old camry. I had checked out the sonics before and knew that the RS was gonna be cool when it came out. While at work i started looking at cars to replace my freshly smashed camry and one of the local dealers had 2 RS's on the lot. I ran by there after work and drove home in my new ride.

So far i am really happy with it! I dont think you can buy a nicer car for the $$$.

2 days after buying it i got the windows tinted and got some vinyl to cover up the horribly ugly front and rear emblems.

Well MIKEB I'm sure if you spend enough time here you'll be tuned in no time. Then the power mods keep flowing in after

Really the most appealing thing to me about a tune is the MPG gains...of course a few extra HP wont make me mad!

Doing HP mods would be a lot easier for me if i wasnt worried about messing up my warranty. This is the only vehicle i have ever owned with a warranty and i want it to last as long as possible!

You throw on a cat back and all you lose is your cat back warranty, who cares.... Intakes are easy to swap (just don't hack up your stock lid for the RNI) out the SAB for a intake so once again no issues. Tunes a different story. Getting caught is slim with Trifecta but there is a chance and you will have to be willing to take it.

I agree with him, I hacked up my stock lid and had my exhaust removed (not a cat back exhaust, it was a cat back dekete) with the budget tune. They said nothing to me at all beside they recommend i put an exhaust in place.

I'm planning on tinting mine immediately, then after I get my tax return I'm planning on throwing on a DDM Works catback and getting a tune. I'm going to keep the suspension and ride height stock to see how I like the factory lowering. Then down the road I may throw in a sub, I don't want anything rumbling, just want to compensate for what it doesn't provide in comparison to my old Monsoon in my 02 Z28.
