2013 Scion FR-S: Not Looking a Gift Horse in the Mouth
July 16, 2012
When I first saw this odd-looking insert (on the right) in our 2013 Scion FR-S, I decided to do some researching. What is it? Pen holder? Art supply caddy? Parking garage card holder?
I didn't see it on the Scion site or even the aftermarket accessories section.
Turns out it's a multi-function electronic device and coin holder (FT86club.com) and includes slots for the different-sized devices out there. And since our FR-S was in the first shipment, it came with the nifty accessory.
Out of curiosity, I checked with Associate Vehicle & Content Coordinator Rex Tokeshi-Torres to see if our car came with anything else (besides its inherent awesomeness) since I heard that the actual First 86ers were given a lot of schwag like a collector's pen (with instructions), FR-S branded clothes, car cover and even entry to the VIP tent at Formula Drift.
"Nope, that's it," Rex replied. Ah well, I'm not too sad about that since it's not my car anyway. And judging from FR-S forums, none of the post-86er FR-S owners are all that broken up about it either. Just happy to be driving their new car which they seem to love lots.
