I think I'm leaning towards U#2 and the Convenience Package now.
I really want Intuitive Parking Assist; the improved stereo is just gravy. ;-)
What did you end up getting if you picked out your FJ? This is my first post, I've been doing a lot of lurking until I pulled the trigger on a new 2010 white FJ with the upgrade package #2 and convenience package. I've been doing research for the past month on different cars, FJ vs. honda element vs. honda fit vs. honda CRZ (I know, the last two are in a different vehicle class). I've always loved the looks of the FJ and fell in love after test driving a certified used '07 with 60k miles and being blown away by the smooth/quiet ride. Now my problem was left to finding a clean low mileage used or to buy new. I got tired of looking at certified used on dealer lots and getting the run around by the sales guys (I even went through fleet/internet sales). The difference between buying a new vs. a used with less than 20k miles was only $3,000-$4,000. I couldn't justify buying the used versus a new one. Turned out the local dealer happened to have a white 4x4 auto with upgrade#2 and convience packages. I haven't broken 500 miles and I'm super happy with the new car smell and breaking in the car. Only regrets is the stock roof rack that I had to take (it was already installed).
Love this site, great group of people and wealth of knowledge. This is my first 4x4 and I look forward to getting my feet/tires wet in some newbie trail driving.
ps. the FJ sound system is great, that sub really rocks! The parking assist is a nice feature when backing up, the camera is tiny in the rear view mirror but works, I really like the body colored door inserts, can't say anything about the ATRAC, or diff lock since I haven't off roaded. I liked the look of the 17" wheels over the 16" more, oddly enough my dealer had 7 FJ's with the off road/all terrain packages and only 1 FJ with the upgrade package #2 and convenience package (the one I bought).
pss. I hope to get the bluelogic bt setup, toyota ipod interface (or any ipod hookup that allows the toyota shuffle/track/artist features), some type of step rail that wont break off if I ever go trail driving and hit a rock, skid plates, some type of all season floor mats and rear cargo mat, rear door storage nets, snowboard/ski racks, second horn module, tint match front side windows to rears, a nicer transmission lever knob, billet door sills, I think that's it for now!
