Toyota officially scrapped its Scion line in August of last year in response to young adults’ changing attitudes about the Toyota brand as a utilitarian brand for their parents. They have become more and more practical in the past few years. I fall in this demographic and despite being disappointed about the Scion brand being buried, I actually agree with this decision. As a high schooler, I thought Scions were really cool looking but as I grew older I slowly changed my mind about them; I didn’t see myself driving a Scion for too long cause I felt I’d outgrow it before long.
While the brand scrapping is still fresh, this still means that Scions are becoming rare and vintage, qualities which are pillars of the JDM world; it doesn’t matter how old a car is as long as it’s a decent enough body to work with right? Scions have a sleeker and sportier look than most other cars which makes for great bases for aftermarket parts such as the brilliant red LED 3rd brake light DIY conversion kit.
To buy the Toyota 86 or buy the Subaru BRZ… that is the question. The purist audience that loves the Toyota 86 and how it represents the AE86 Corolla will lean towards the Toyota and while the others will prefer the Subaru. The differences are subtle but there is a real decision to make when buying either one.
It’s not often that you come across a Yuzu colored Scion FR-S, but we have the luxury of seeing some pretty sweet cars at our storefront. This Scion FR-S is well equipped with a set of smoked lens LED fog lights to give the little sports coupe a super sleek racing style look. The Scion FR-S LED fog lights are powered by three CREE XP-E LED emitters with a total of 15W for a super bright output that is sure to make everyone on the road take a second look. The fog lamps are specially designed with high quality glass lens and an optical lens that delivers a super sharp cut-off line. You’ll definitely be able to witness just how sharp the cut-off line is when you park across a wall!
If you’ve got one half of the famous FT86 twins, then you definitely know that these sports coupes pack a whole lot of punch in their little frame. Many Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ drivers tend to install quite a few upgrades to make their car stand out and this Valenti LED Reverse Lamp is a great option for drivers who want to convert the rear reflector into an LED bundle. There are three options available so drivers can choose from crystal clear, black smoked or red chrome housing to match the overall aura of their car.
Don’t forget about your fog lights! Fog lights are a pretty important aspect of your vehicle and helps increase visibility in adverse driving conditions as well as tie the whole look of the car together. This is a set of direct fit LED fog lights that’s compatible with the Scion FR-S and is quite the step up from what you’d get if your vehicle was still stock. Have you ever stopped at an intersection and marveled at the car with super bright fog lights across the red light from you? Fog lights can capture anyone’s attention and an FR-S with brand new fog lights is definitely the star of the show.
