Hi fellow iM enthusiasts!
I just bought my 2016 Scion iM a few days ago and just found this awesome forum where I can share my experiences with you! I'm looking to find some nice wheels to compliment the shape of the car as the first real upgrade, also maybe some lowering springs. Would love some recommendations!

Jealous you don't need a front license plate -_-

I love the black though!

The springs are super comfortable... the only difference between them and stock is they are about 1.3" lower than stock ride height, body roll is reduced by about 20-25%, but the wheel well gap is still about two fingers from the top of the tire to the fender arch. Being progressive rate springs they only tighten up under load (cornering) in a straight line they are extremely comfortable. I kinda wish they were about another .25" inches lower, BUT being the only springs I know of available at the moment they'll do until someone releases performance shocks / struts... any lower than where it sits now, and the stock struts / shocks would get bouncy in urban pot hole ridden areas.

Awesome, I like the black. I have a white car right now and am sick of washing and waxing but still not getting that deep shine.
I find that getting a good permanent paint protection applied once taking delivery and then doing follow ups with a detailer or doing it yourself goes a long way in making the vehicle look good.

Even better if you want to retain more of the vehicles value over time.
