I posted a grainy pic in another thread but her are today's daytime pics.

I really like this car over the LE we owned. the LE was a lot better transmission wise since I just had the TSB done on it. I even got pulled over for going to fast in a residencial area. :lol: Yes...in a I4 Camry...wierd. It kept getting away from me. ( the real cute Female Police Officer let me go with a warning...she honestly knew I "thought" it was a 35mph zone) I really like the keyless start. Mrs Dood does as well. She now doesn't HAVE to take forever fishing out her keys anymore from her bottomless pit of a purse.

So here are some pics:

Very nice. I think the SE lip kit would look awesome on that car
Probably...But I have LEARNED since the LE. I am not going to add anything to this one. Mrs Dood HATED the lip spoiler...even though I liked it. I am transfering the mud flaps from the LE to this car on Monday. (If possible)...that was part of the deal I kept the All Weather Mats from the LE. Can't leave home without 'em. :cool:

No side molding on this one either. Maybe...just maybe if the price is right I will change the grill. I am transfering my After Market rims from the LE to this car though.( you can see them in the sig) I like to be able to tell my car from others in a parking lot. those rims were great for that and they look nicer then the Toyota rims. These rims now on it are "decent" but nothing special. Anyone wants to buy them off me we can come to a price...

Congratulations, looks very nice! Yup, that push button start is a really cool feature to have. But I remember tho... the first few days I had my new car, I kept reaching over to turn the keys each time I parked the car. :lol:

Will you put Navi into your car? I think that would round out the package really well.

Nice whip. Most guys on here like a sporty interior and a sport exterior but I like a luxury interior with a sporty exterior. Your car is nice as is but I would probably have a field day adding SE components to the outside of it. Anyways.........nice looking ride and don't upset the wife. lol.

What happened with the LE?

At some point I will add a third party NAV.

Same here. I like the "plusher" interior. The SE interior's are cool as shit. Overall I like the luxury feel. Same for the suspension. A lot of guy & gals here love the "Sport Suspension" over anything else. Me?...I enjoy those but, I don't want to own one. I do not want ot be all beat up and shit after a long drive.


So what was wrong with the old car :confused:
Nothing happen to it. nothing is wrong with it. It is just NOT a XLE. I just got the hesistation problem fixed and sold it that same day.
I kept the Black LE's All Weather Mats. Today I will see if they can swap off my Mud Flaps from the LE to the XLE.

UpDate!!

Well I took my XLE into the Spartan Toyota this morning.

Talked with the Service Manager...no problem on the Sat-Radio instll, the Rim swap, the Mud Flap Swap, The Protection coats inside and out, etc...

Turns out the NEW FIX for the V6-6 speed Transmission is not a actual FIX...it is a Brand New Updated Transmission.

Yes...I repeat. Brand New UPDATED transmission. As of 1-19-07 he read off the TSB anoucement to me. So they are keeping my car of course and gave me another XLE for a loaner. Without Push Button Start...hehe It all should be done by end of business tomorrow.

I am WELL PLEASED at the level of service I am getting.

When he said brand new - updated, exactly what did he mean? I was told I had a brand new updated tranny also. Today is 1/22, did they ship it overnight or something since the TSB came out Friday. Did he say where it came from?

Err...no! He said he will have it tomorrow. I am assuming it will be Next Day Air. He told me it is an updated Transimission.

Either way...this Service Manager has always been good to me. He drops everything to answer my calls. He likes me. I have been very kind to him as well. The rims he is swapping he just did a 4 wheel alignment on my LE on Saturday for me. He is going to do the same thing to this one as well. So the Rims exactly match the car.

Ok, I'm glad he likes you. Keep us updated. The reason I asked because when I called my service manager Saturday he said they had already replaced my tranny with a "new" one. Remember this was just last month.

If you can, please see if you can find out where the new tranny came from and when it was built. Thanks.

I hear ya...but it is paid for and it does protect it from stone chips. Something I get frequently driving 70 miles to work.
