Looks great. I assume it wasn't too pricey either. Any other plans for your iM?

Next on the list I'm installing H&R Sport coilsprings for a 2013+ European Toyota Auris (same car pretty much except for the engine choices)... installing them tomorrow. Should lower the car about 1.3" front and back.

I ordered the TRD panel filter as well, but it's not here yet.

Thinking about an exhaust, but may wait to see if anyone makes any decent cat-back systems before hacking up the factory exhaust.

I have been going to the same tint shop for 7 or 8 years this was my 5th car done there. Normally would have been $220. I paid $160.

It pays to be a returning customer and the tint looks great! Where I'm from they don't have a specific percentage for how tinted my windows can be, the decision is up to the cops and if they feel like my windows are too dark...

Here in Iowa you can have anything on the rear doors and hatch, but nothing on the front doors and windshield. The blue iM looks great in your picture. So far I have only seen the Blizzard and Red. Keep up the good progress.

That tint is perfect and is what would be what is legal for most states although you might get pulled over just for the cop to inspect an ensure its a legal level tint.


Just ensure you use tint safe cleaners when the time comes to clean it.

Awesome! Post a picture if you can after they get done with the tint % and brand of film they use. I tinted the front windows a little darker than Virginia law permits (VA law only permits 50% in the front), but I really don't care.
