Anyone else on here feel slightly chafed that we didn't get the option for the panoramic glass roof? I gladly would have payed another $2k for that option. I get that they are trying to appeal to a certain market or demographic, but at least could have given us the choice I feel like. The Auris RS and Levin ZR at least have that option, even though they end up being way more expensive. Anyone thought about adding a sunroof to theirs?

I miss it from my last car, but not a deal breaker.

Sunroof add-ons are doable but proceed with caution. Done poorly you will have structural issues and leaks. Done correctly, it is expensive.

The U.S. car market always seems to get inferior version of subcompact and compact cars - especially from Japanese companies. For example, the Corolla 'iM' in Australia has the nicer full-LED headlights and standard factory equipped fog lights, to name a few upgrade differences.

Well, it was being sold as a Scion, which was the budget brand.

Now that it is a Toyota proper, I hope some of those features get added back in.

Yeah, I'm hoping these features make it to the 2018 or 2019 iM. Most Toyota's seem to go in 3 year refresh cycles until the next total redesign, so it should be refreshed in 2019, assuming it won't be completely replaced by the next-gen total-revamp Auris that is due in Europe in 2019 also I believe.

MANY other cars have them with NO problem.
If that's the case and I agree that plenty have, it makes me wonder why not include it on our cars? What goes behind the scenes? If Toyota knows that this option could add sales in the US, then why is it not available to us? I have a theory that it may be similar from the gun industry like in CA, if it isn't deemed 'safe' by CA, it won't be allowed to be sold in that state.

What are your thoughts Dave?
