Short Answer: go aftermarket, the 6 disk is the same as the stock unit, only it is $300 more and holds 5 more CDs (and the screen's back light can change colors ) . The stock head unit is good compared to others, but after market will always be better and cheaper.LoopyLady_1 said:
1) Is the factory 6CD changer pretty good, or would I be better off getting one somewhere else?
A few things: The tC has the key less entry buttons built into the key head (not a seperate fob). These may not work with an after market alarm, which means you have extra usless buttons on your key. The tC also has an engine immobilizer which makes it hard to steal in the first place, and makes adding remote start almost immpossible. A security system from Scion may be worth conisdering if you HAVE to have one.LoopyLady_1 said:
2) How about the security system? If I get one installed somewhere else, does that screw with any warranties? Is it generally a better idea to get the factory system or just the opposite?
It does not matter if you get those options right away or come back and get them put on in a year.LoopyLady_1 said:
3) If I want to get the 18" wheels, or the lip spoiler...better to do it from the start, or does it not make a difference?
