Had to get the Automatic. The wife doesn't know how to drive a manual. And I really don't want to have to teach her on a brand new car.

I can see first time manual drivers getting frustrated in traffic jams so the Automatic may have been the better choice. Congratulation and it looks amazing!

Especially frustrated with the engagement point of the clutch in this car. There is a lot of travel in the pedal, and an unusually high engage point. Whoever calibrated it must have been like 5'5". As a 6'7'' long legged creature it took me about a week to not want to chirp the tires lol.

Active car enthusiast since 1996... This is my second brand new Scion (previously owned a 2005 XB). Loving my 2016 Scion iM Electric Storm Blue 6 speed!

Lol. Did you have to move your seat all the way back reduce the chirping?

Someone here mention you can adjust the play in the clutch pedal, but I have never heard of anyone actually doing it.

I think there's a chance that might be something mentioned in the owners manual. If not then it could be something we'll find in the service manual for the Corolla...due to possible similarities.

I checked out the iM in-person today while waiting on regular service maintenance on my 2015 Toyota Yaris SE. The dealership had over a dozen iM's on the lot (mostly silver & white), and the one Barcelona (Dark) Red Metallic they had onsite really put the other colors to shame. Pictures do NOT do this color justice at all. It is absolutely gorgeous in-person, and really pops with all that black trim work. Plus, the iM taillights blend perfectly with it. I can't believe this is the least-popular & rarest color for the iM. I'm not usually a 'red car guy', but this is easily my top choice if I decide to pick up a 2018 iM in the latter half of 2018. 2nd choice would be Blizzard Pearl White, since no Dark Gray or Falcon Gray Metallic color is available on the iM.

2015 Toyota Yaris SE, Manual 5-spd, Super-White (w/TRD Rear-Sway-Bar, Super-White Shark-Fin Antenna, SunTek-CXP/35 Window Tint, SS Exhaust Tip, etc.).

I think Toyota did a great job with the iM, all colors look good and many of them really "pop", blue, red and light green do for sure. I have a white one and I love how it looks.

Heres my 2016 Red IM 6spd. My first red car honestly was one of the only manual ones I could find. Hoping to start playing with it to make it more mine soon.
