The oddly-named JDM Toyota ist was formally introduced this week, and as was the case with the Toyota Blade Master, another new arrival in Japan's Toyota stores, a range of TRD accessories was announced very shortly thereafter. They do the job of dressing up the rather bland ist, which is Japan's version of the USDM Scion xD.

Naturally, there's a replacement grille, body kit, and new wheels. The look can be further augmented with branded scuff plates, TRD Sportivo suspension parts, and a TRD muffler. Hell, TRD even offers a red engine start button. The US-market Scions have always been pushed as being very customization-friendly, and really, it's no different for the JDM cars. The available accessories do a nice job of dressing things up.

      Turd. LOL. That sums up every Toyota. Of course, Tacky Racing Decal always works too.

        Wow hash, that all you got? Sad. Truth hurts, huh?

      All show and absolutely no go whatsoever.

      TRD -- read aloud: "turd" -- is absolutely right.

      Piss on Toyota.

      I'm engineering some TRD's right now.

        When your done producing your newly engineered TRDs, you can get some racing done in the mini water-filled circle track in your house.

        I never got the play on TRD until I read this post. I sprayed the Coke I was drinking all over my laptop and laughed for 30 minutes. Every ricer I see now with TRD on it will crack me up.

      Now, I just posted about how ugly the new Corolla is, and I sorta feel bad for doing the same for this car. Nope, never mind. I no longer feel bad about making fun of Toyota, especially with their stupidity of naming a car a TRD. I also never realized that TRD could be sounded like that until I read this post, so I guess that gives hope for Toyota that SOME people might make the oversight.

      Toyota has a knack for cranking out some of the fuglyist cars of all time.

      You don`t even have to call it a TRD. It already looks like one.
