I have yet to see a red one anywhere... in person or online. I wonder what the build number is for each color...

When I went to the L.A County fair a few weeks ago, Toyota's display had BRM there. The few pics that I took.

Here's my Barcelona Red metallic iM. Took this picture the day I put a deposit down on the car. I wanted the Blue, but the wife thought the blue was too bright. So red was the compromise.

This is the color I would have gone with. We got one in on my day off at the dealership and it was dealer traded for a blue one so I never got to see it in person. Something about the red with black accents makes it pop to me. Good choice, are you getting the auto or manual.

Even with higher end vehicles going with black trim is what they've been doing, just goes to show the soundness of doing it. Days of chrome seem to be phasing out and even when it comes on a vehicle I always see people talking about how they want to black it out.

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.

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.

It is a pretty great color

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.
