If you can find a Toyota Yaris to test drive than this could actually work. I won't buy a car i haven't tried out yet, but I would go for the iM if I had tried out its sibling the Yaris.

What are the benefits of pre-ordering?

Wow, that would be cool if we could do that. Problem is, I haven't decided between the Manual and the CVT. I would prefer a Manual but reviews about the CVT getting maximum sport shift points has gotten me interested.

Well I will be driving both before I decide, that's for sure. I have a curvy mountain road near my house. My closest Scion dealer is 8 miles away, so I hope they will let me test drive a manual and a CVT here and back to take it up the mountain.

I plan on doing the same. I think it's a good idea to drive all the options available. I'm a salesperson's worst nightmare -- I want to see ALL of the colors in person, feel all the seats, drive all the different powertrains, check out all the accessories, talk to all the salespeople, drink the coffee in the waiting area, read through all the brochures...you get the point. :D

Oh god, I did hate you when I was in sales.

I am kind of like that too,except I make it clear from the start I am mainly just looking. Most are understanding and back off and just say they are free to answer any questions. I don't want to keep him from other possible customers.
Of course at test drive time I will have to involve him.

On the plus side you do make a it bit easier on their end as having that mindset and coming from the experience you come from, the things you'd need from them actually matter and not be what can already be found online, through brochures, etc.

Some people walk in not knowing anything.

Growing up I think I was the only kid to actually read the instruction manuals for my video games. I totally get where you are coming from.
