    Okay, i'm a newbie here and I don't even own an X-Runner yet, I'm from the Great White North (Canada) where X-Runner's are scarce. I had to factory order a SWB XR as there are no '09 SWB XR's in any Toyota dealer lot in Western Canada, there is a '09 BSP on Vancouver Ilsand, B.C. I've been told, but I was also mentioned to me that it has been driven around as a demo, so imo that's not a new vehicle.

    I'm just curious as to how many members have had to order their XR's from the factory or did you drive it away from the dealership inventory or you purchased it used.

    I'm talking X-Runners only, not regular Taco's as they are a dime a dozen up here also, I also checked out Washington state and there is nothing there either, although given the exchange rate it's cheaper to buy in Canada.

    I tried to look at one in person in June/July 2007. There is a dealer walking distance from my office. No luck. Dealer told me he had not seen one in 6 months. I did not want to order one sight unseen.

    In November of the same year, I was driving by the same lot and they had two out front a RR & SWB. I pulled in drove the RR and bought it that day.

    I tried to get a used bsp with a trd supercharger, bigbrake kit, shortshifter, and exhaust.....drove it, started the paperwork on it, and the next day, I went to go finalize everything and someone came and bought it before my paperwork was concluded cash.....2 weeks later, I went back to get a new model, and they had to hunt it down, I got it brand new with 225 miles on the odo from them driving it to my dealership from where it was originally :top:

    I got mine brand new in January of 08. I actually went to the dealership in November of 07 and saw an 07 that was the only one on the lot for 24K (only 07 on the lot, but had a bunch of 08's). They tried to talk me into then, but i wasnt ready... i still hadnt sold my Matrix XRS at that time. I had researched the truck for the past year and new what i was looking for and for what price. 24K for an 07 was NOT it.

    So in January of 08 i went there and the 07 was gone and all they had were 08's. Talked the guy down and got a killer price i was very happy with... test drove it.. they shined it up all nice for me and i drove it off the lot... couldnt have been more happier! and still am!

    Went to Puente Hills Toyota to look at the XR. They had a used XR with all sorts of body damage on the lot (drywall screws holding up the side skirt, rear bumper smashed in, dents all over the bed). The salesman said that shouldn't be there so he took me to the back and showed me a new BSP. I took it for a test drive and loved the truck but I wanted SWB. We sat and talked about pricing and availability of the SWB color but they wouldn't budge on the price so I could not commit. They kept telling me if they could get a SWB would I sign the papers that day. They were trying to get me to pay 30k for a 23k truck.

    A week later I drove down to Longo Toyota and they had a SWB on the lot with 4 miles. Took it out for a test drive, sat down with the salesman and came to a reasonable price. So I walked out with a 07 SWB XR and a smile on my face.

    Wow, interesting responses.

    I decided to get an X-Runner, because I always liked Tacoma's and I needed a new car, so I was looking at Tacoma's when I saw a used Red '08 X-Runner with a SOLD sign on it, at a Toyota (West Coast Toyota) lot , at first I thought it was a custom modded Taco, then I noticed the X-Runner badge, so I asked the sales guy about it, he said it's a model option from Toyota, and handed me a brouchure.

    Upon looking at all the specs online, this truck has just about everything i've been looking for, I had a 4x4 GMC Truck once and had bad times with the drivetrain and being a 4x4 set me back $$$ all the time, so I didn't want another 4X4, and didn't want no 4 banger in a truck either, so V6 2 wheel Taco w/access cab and X-Runner is only option for that. I know of 2 used XR Taco's for sale here in the Vancouver area, but I want a new and not a truck that somebody has already run the piss out of it.

    BTW. I found this site on Toyota Nation. Awesome site, I've been lurking around here for a few days torturing myself on what mods I could do, and yet i'm like 3 months away before I get to drive my own. I did take a test drive on regular 4cyl 2wd access cab taco, it wasn't bad but, I betting a 4.0L V6 will be much better.

    cheers!

    i have been reaserching the x since it was a concept and i thought it was a cool truck. didnt think at the time it was going to come out but i was exited when it did. my mom wanted a truck so we went to the fairfield automall one sunday just 2 luck at trucks and were a nissan family since forever so we went to look at the titans. my mom loved the trucked and i really liked it 2 and so we wanted a crew cab titan but the salesmen were horrible and not dealing prices 2 well. after 2 hrs of fustrasion we left the dealership at 8:45 (the automall closes at 9) as were rolling by all the dealerships i spot the x (seemed like from a mile away) in the showroom floor. it was dark and they had lights over it and i told my mom 2 lets check it out. we went in and imidiately the sales man takes it out the showroom so we can test drive it. b4 we get in it another customer comes in and is lovin the truck 2 but we got there first. while we test drove it they had run my moms credit and everything and they asked if my mom wanted to take it and she asked me if i liked it. i was like i love it. so a may 05 1 1/2 months before my sophmore highskool year ends i have a brand new 6 miles on it BSP xrunner. i didnt even have my permit then. as soon as i got my permit i started driving it 2 skool and it was the baddest truck there. so am i the youngest 2 own an x. (15 at the time)

    i was the only x in napa then brett came along (BSP 05 X-RUNNER):eviltongue: jp brett i love your murdered truck .lol.

    i wanted an X since the first time i saw one. was maybe a few years ago i used to see one parked out at a construction site. i believe it belonged to one of the workers and i was like,"damn is that a new tacoma with a body kit?" i would see one around occasionally and ended up doin research on them. at the time i was drivin an 03 GMC sonoma 4 banger which sometimes would frustrate me cause it had no real power to it and used to leak whenever it rained it would drip through my door panel and soak me while i was driving. i started lookin for a full time job and my mom told me once i had kept a full time job for over 3 months, she would help me look for a new vehicle. cause i have no credit really. i started lookin at savannahtoyota sites to see if there were any in stock. i kept seein the same BSP until it became the only one left. my sister and I went to dealership just to browse and as soon as i saw her on the showroom floor the salesman let me drive her. went back home to get the other truck and my mom wanted to come with me, so we went back and she dropped a huge down payment on it and its everything i ever dreamed of, didnt even wait 3 months, it only took like 3 weeks. .... hope you get yours soon bro, youll love it. by the way, the one i saw on the site for months is now the one im driving everyday. we live happily ever after

    Vancouver, B.C. I've had a horrible time dealing with Toyota dealers, I tried wheeling dealing in prices, but no dealer is willing to budge on MSRP on a factory order, and the BSP that's on the island, that dealer wants my dealer to give them a Hybrid Toyota in exchange, so since the Hybrids are the hot sellers on the lot, deals on an X-Runner is scarce, not to mention the used '08 I saw sold for a couple thousand less than sticker on a new '09. Anyhow I paid slighlty less than MSRP, but not as less as I liked, I'm willing to get a lesser deal to get the truck of my dreams. As for Mods I'm waiting for the exchange rate to even out at 10% or better, then my wife & I have friends and family in Washington & Oregon, we can spend a couple weeks in the USA during the summer and i'll mod the truck down there, cause in Canuckistan is just too expensive. :dontknow:

    X-fest in Canada would be cool. :rockon:

    I bought it from a Honda Dealer, they had it for a good price and I went for it. Originally wanted a BSP, but once I saw both BSP and SWB in person I went for the SWB. The first user only had it for about two weeks and put 330 miles on it! before trading it in for a honda! ...
