Just picked up my 2017 Corolla IM from the dealership last night. Whopping 6 miles at delivery. From the pre delivery inspection. Got this for a deal, didn't want to spend another 3 grand for an 2018 model. The dealership had a sweet promotion I couldn't pass. Blizzard Pearl color. I'm thinking of a few things. Body side mouldings for door ding culprits. The rear wing, and mudgaurds.

Welcome. What was your final total price before tax, title and registration?

Congrats on the new iM. Did you get the CVT or 6MT? How much did you get it for? There have been some great deals out there. I also bought a 2017 as the 2018 wasn't really changing and didn't have the deals the 2017 did. I just picked up my 2017 6MT in CSM for $13560 + TT&L. Do yourself a favor and get a Clear Bra installed ASAP to keep the paint in new condition. I also had the windows tinted and ordered a short shift kit. What are your plans? Love my iM. :D

So I am getting, side body moldings, mud guards, and rear bumper protector installed tomorrow. Also putting my winter tires on, i ordered a new set of Continental WinterContact tires to put on. Just as good as Blizzak or Michelin X-ice, just less expensive.

I didn't think of the clear paint protector for the hood, and I will have to make sure I order that too!

I have access to a Blizzard White rear wing deflector as well, seems to be hard to fine in some areas. But I can order one through my local dealer. Just not sure If i want to!

I plan on tinting the windows this month, I always do with my vehicles. I go 5%, because it does not matter how dark past "factory" you go, It's all illegal. I am in Minnesota, and on passenger vehicles that are not SUVs you can not have tint.

I've always seen that the Michelin X-ice 3 and Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 are the 2 very best rated winter tires. The General Altima Arctic has always been a best buy for the money. I'm sure that the WnterContact will be pretty good too but I've never seen it out rank the other top 2 in a test comparison.

I wouldn't get 5% tint just from a safety point at night. I got 25% on my iM as it's legal in Washington state and it seems to be an excellent balance for night and day. I wouldn't go darker then 20% although I did on the front top of my windshield where I put 5%.

When you do the Clear Bra get the entire hood covered along with the front bumper.

Got the side moldings, mud guard, and rear bumper protector all installed today! Looks awesome!

As far as the tint goes, 5% is the only thing i have ever done in the past. I have had it on 6 cars and only encountered two tickets which go for $180 bucks a piece. Over probably 8 years.

State troopers are the only people who care about it and will flag you. But I think it will look best, especially on the blizzard white.

Rear wing deflector comes tomorrow, as well as my wheel locks. So I am pretty excited about those two items.

Will post pictures tomorrow hopefully!

Any tint from 35% to 20% will still look amazing, and on most any color. My wife's 2010 Prius is Blizzard Pearl with 25% tint and it looks fantastic.

Alright everyone. All accessories finally installed.

The rear wing deflector is hot!

So mud guards, rear bumper protector, side body moldings, wheel locks, and rear wing deflector all installed. Tint is next!

Looks awesome! I love my ESB, but I sometimes get a little jealous if the BWP for the simple fact that they can rock black accessories better (carbon fiber, bumper protector, etc.) I've been eyeing the bumper protector, but I just don't know how it will flow with the blue. Where did you get the side moldings? I'd be interested in a set of those as well, color matched and low profile, they really don't mess with the lines.
