Im new to the Scion community, iM the proud new owner of a black 2016 Scion iM. Haha see what I did there? Hahaha!! Sorry I can be silly at times.

We just got it a few days ago and its the first Scion I've ever owned. I've always owned a Toyota (94 pickup, 99 Tacoma 4x4 sr5, 2013 Toyota Yaris LE) but after my Toyota Yaris was totaled in an accident 3 weeks ago I decided I'd try out a Scion. My step sister has always owned a Scion and told me I should check them out. I went in to the dealership looking to buy a new tC but when i saw this iM it was love at first sight.

:x

Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the forum!

I think you were smart to forego the tC in favor of the iM. All that I have read about it has been positive. Seems like a great car for the price that it is at.

Cheers!

Thanks! Yes it is.. I was really surprised at how well it rides. I had to add an aFe cold air intake to the 1.5L VVT-i in my Yaris just so I could hear the engine. I was thinking Id have to do the same to this car but no, I can hear the engine just fine. Its a great little car and I cant wait to start personalizing it.

Thanks I love it. Its smooth and very responsive.
how do you find it to be on the highway and taking over vehicles? Usually that's a good test of how much power it has during a time where it's needed the most for most owners.... minus the gear heads that will be punching it more than often. :D

So what are your ideas on how you are going to personalize it?

I took it to Orlando last weekend, 6 hour round trip on the highway, and it was nice. I could just glide threw traffic like it was nothing... lol.

Well so far Ive added my 8" Sick Speed blue flower shifter, window tint, ice blue LED licence plate lights, "Classic Muscle Car" blue plasidip on the badges and gas cap cover, and got some vinyl work done the other day.

Pics dont do it justice.. lol.
:)

Bigger mods such as wheels, coilovers, exhaust system.... will come later.

It actually looks amazing with the hints of blue you've added here and there. Mostly the whale. :D
More vinyl decorations!
Thanks! Thats probably all Im going to do to it. My vinyl guy wants me to add some black 3D carbon fiber but I havent decided yet.

The whale represints the date we got into our accident. It was the day my 2013 Toyota Yaris LE "Laboon" was totaled. I really loved that little car...
:crying:

Use of blue actually looks good and seeing it in pictures helps, something that if you only explained i woudln't have thought it will look as good as it does here.

What other changes do you have for your iM

Well the pics dont do it justice, it looks awesome in real life!

Idk if Im gonna do much more to it for a while. I eventually want to get some better wheels, a better exhaust system, and Id like to lower it a bit more. Im hoping to order a TRD air filter for it soon too.
