    Hi! I'm new to the scion tc forum, but am here on probably an already talked about a lot mission.

    I wanted a TC as my first car for a while and got a decently high mileage white one that had been in 2 accidents (second one the girl who owned it previously hit a deer and it destroyed the front bumper, and also had backed into a tree denting the car and breaking the right taillight) and ruled a total loss, perfect first beater car for a 17 year old right?

    Come to find out when deep cleaning the car a couple days later (previous girl used it for transporting her dog lol) the car was actually an RS 3.0, with the shifter, # plaque, and broken taillights to prove it, I couldn't tell at the time when buying the car cause I didn't even know really what the RS 3.0 looked like other than the bumper, which had been replaced with a stock tc bumper due to the previous deer accident.

    Anyways, since the tail lights are basically broken and also misplaced at the moment, same with the bumper, what would be the best way of replacing the bumper and tail lights? I've seen other threads say you can call a dealer for the lights, but the bumper or lip or whatever seems to be a lot rarer or more expensive, any help would be appreciated!

    try ebay is what I'm thinking. Might be a junkyard find but if you find a clean one then you could buff it out, primer/paint. About the tail lights.. you'd be replacing the tail lights with regular tC lighting. I know some of the release series came with the LED light type (the entire light were separate LED's not an LED bulb replacing a regular one). Those LED lights are discontinued from what I remember. That's why I'm thinking aftermarket might be able to help if you had those LED type of tail lights. I've seen a lot of cool things on ebay lately with tC lighting/tail lights. Not sure how long they'd last, but hey life's a gamble!
