Indeed, good space to play with under their.
Anyone planning to jump right in with a custom axle-back rather than waiting for something specific to show up?

I am debating on having that canister resonator removed and keeping just the black rear muffler portion.

Of all the things I would mod on the iM, I think exhaust wouldn't be the first. It just seems like it isn't a very significant change. I'd rather start with tinting windows and if I have the funds different rims.

If you want a cleaner looking rear end then i'd say go for it. At least with the exhaust being black you won't have to worry about it changing color or getting dirty since you won't see any of that.

You can't see anything from the rear of the car other than the tip... I literally had to get my 6'7'' ass laying down flat on the ground to look at everything underneath there. If I get the resonator removed I'll post a video of what it sounds like. Tring to get a crap load of stuff done for a car show on October 16th.

How does your 6'7" body fit if my 6'4" doesn't? I guess it's mostly the side to side leg room for me.

I am 6'7'' 260lb. I have about 4-5 in" of head room. I have my seat ALL the way down, and all the way back. You know the steering wheel is telescoping right? I got it adjusted pretty good 3-4" of clearance for my knees. I shift fine knee doesn't even com close to the steering wheel or door when engaging the clutch pedal. It's almost as roomy as my 1gen XB was.

I too have a gen1 xB and in the iM, the door card and center console seem too close together for my legs to fit comfortably. Maybe I am spoiled from the first gen that doesn't have as much of a center console. Enjoy your iM!

I definitely feel a lot safer in this than I did in the XB... it's slightly more peppy (bigger motor, but bigger curb weight to go with it too). I'm enjoying the **** out of it right now... sometimes I wish I'd held on to my XB but I sold it right at 85,000 miles literally the week it was paid off, and sold it for $8,500. Best resale I've ever gotten off of any car I've ever owned.

Back on topic: Has anyone on here explored any of the Australian Toyota Corolla Levin exhaust options? I know that all of the motor options for the Toyota Auris are different than our USDM iM's, but the Toyota Levin is the same 1.8L motor as ours.
