- 3.5" monitor/rearview mirror
- Full 3m (hood, fender, mirrors, a-pillers, roof, bumper)
- Smoked 3m on headlights, taillights, high mount brake light, rear bumper reflectors and front chrome grill
- Full interior LED's
- Nokian Hakka R 235/55r19 winters
- 20mm hubcentric spacers all around
- Garmin unit mounted on dash center console

Mods/Purchases on order:

Your Vue was one of my favourites on here man. Family always has to come first though and at least your mini van looks like it has an edge to it. All the best!

Default Re: It was a good run.....

Wow! Minivan styling has come a long way! I still would be extremely hesitant to ever own one (only two kids, so not really any need to) but that definitely is one sharp looking van

That is a very nice Vue as well, looks like you take very good care of your cars.

Oh now that is just sick. I started laughing when I saw the first Sienna pic pop up - you WOULD get one! I would not be ashamed at all driving a new sienna sport.

Definitely a logical upgrade, and probably somewhat similar in powertrain feel. My Dad just got a 2010 Highlander V6 and it reminds me of the Vue when I drive it sometimes. Less snappy shifts, but overall a sweet sounding vehicle

So will you be posting updates on the Sienna on ToyotaNation.com or here?

Default Re: It was a good run.....

I have two little ones and I've been trying to talk my wife into a minivan for over a year now... She keeps saying that she doesn't want to be one of "those moms" and she's not old enough yet.

...I just sent her the photos of your nu van. If it works, I'll send you cash so you can go buy yourself a case of beer as a thank you from me to you.

What model/package combo is it? I tried looking on toyota.com and looking at the packages, etc... Couldn't fine a "sport" package.

Enjoy the new ride.

Thanks b. When I was online, I thought the SE looked like it, but then you mentioned "sport model" and I thought it might be one of their packages added to say, and LE, SE, or limited, etc. Thanks!

NICE!!!
Are we going to see you doing those Toyota commercials on Youtube? The swagger wagon came a long way since the jelly bean van back in '96.

Good for you and congrats on #3, in the back of my mind I've always wanted to see what you would do with a minivan, considering how your other cars looked.
The wife and I have been contemplating the Minivan but we don't have any car payments right now and that is kinda nice. And having only 2 kids it isn't totally necessary but it would be nice sometimes. I've been keeping an eye on the used Honda Odyssey market and it's amazing how well they hold there value.

I like how he limited his depth of field in the photos.

What camera did you use?
