3. Wait, the xD actually looks good?
The xD has never been much of a looker. Being a sub-compact hatchback, it was never going to be an exercise in leading edge design. But the two-tone paint job with black roof and blue body begin to add a little style. Throw in classic black 18-inch rims, a blacked-out front center bumper, TRD exhaust and lowered stance and the xD stands out in a nice clean way.
Plus, its still backed by a full warranty; more than can be said for many homemade modification projects.
