I'm glad you wrote this up, Scoob. I was wanting to read up a little on the tC (I was really hoping TC stood for what TC usually stands for... damn. But a supercharger won't hurt I guess.) Karma for Scoob.

I may have found that one car worthy of replacing my six. Does it come in purple?

I updated the original post to include an image of the available colors.

I like the Silver Streak Mica the best.

I'm all about Indigo Ink Pearl.

Y'all've got it all wrong. Black Cherry Pearl is clearly where it's at.

Close second, Rick.
Little too black cherry for me.

God, Trent, your monitor too? I expected you, of all people, to take care of such things...

The Indigo is a bit bright for my tastes. If it were a darker blue, it'd be quite a bit nicer, IMNSHO.

Dude, how can you live with yourself?

I've sent a messenger pigeon with my own printout. Make sure not to leave before he gets there - Mr. Cloacky doesn't like making a trip for nothing.

The only way to adjust your monitor accurately is to compare your screen to a reference sheet with the proper lighting and adjust until they match.
There are guys who do that for a living for multimedia companies.

If any of you had bothered to go to such lengths you would see that the Black Cherry, is too black and the Indigo Ink is too indigo.
I would like a blue if it were more electric (metallic) blue. There are too few cars that color.

God, shows how much you know about computers...

Mess with the colors until Black Cherry Pearl looks 100% badass. You'll know because it's directly in between almost completely badass and too badass to the point that it's annoying.



Sean, I think your thread has been properly hijacked. It might help to know, though, that both Kyle and Trent have brought tCs up to me and each other on AIM, so it would seem your thread has had its desired effect - tempting young guys who can't really afford em.





Oh yeah, and I built my own too...

Cant really afford them?

I paid $25k for my new MX6, this thing is only $18K speced out the way I want. Doesnt get much more affordable than that.
Also, it is easier to get financing on a new car than a used and the payments end up being close to the same since you can finance longer and get a better APR.

Hows that for hijacking?
