Hi! I bought my 2018 iM on March 2nd, with 14 miles on it, and am up to 1850 miles in 23 days! I am loving this car. I also own an 05 Corolla XRS. Only 273K on her.

Welcome to the iM forum! I love my 2017 iM too. What color is yours and is it a 6MT or a CVT? Any mods planned for it?

Welcome. I agree, this car is pretty cool. I've owned over 50 cars, from classic cars, to sports cars, to nice Mercedes, to my Tacoma....but this car in my opinion is very underrated. Mine is a 2016 with now 25k on the odometer and it handles well, looks unique on the road, and when driven well actually can get good pickup. Hope you have fun with it.

Mine is black, her name is Onyx/Kuro. She is a CVT. They didn't have the 6MT available with the rear spoiler, or within a 5 state radius. So far, I only miss not having a sun/moon roof and shifting gears. Haven't planned any mods yet, but I know between my son and I, it will happen. I read reviews before I test drove this one, and saw that people complained that it doesn't have 'get up and go'. Well..... one of the things I tried on the test drive. Sold me.

We still drive the XRS. I do a lot of driving in my job, and when Ruby (Red XRS) stopped running, I needed another car immediately. Found out that she didn't need a new engine, just new ignition coils. :-( By then, I had already gotten the iM. No, I don't regret it.

True, but they didn't have the 6MT available, with or without the spoiler, so I chose the CVT with the spoiler.

You couldn't find a 6MT in your area? How far out did you look? There were plenty of them in my area so I would think that you could find one okay if you looked in a larger radius. The rear spoiler/wind deflector is an easy add on option and most cars on the lot won't have it. Too bad you settled for the CVT as the 6MT is a lot more fun. I test drove both and it was no contest which one I was going to buy. ;)

They allegedly checked in a 5 state radius. It is okay. I still have my XRS, so when I need to take a car out and shift gears, I will drive it.

I test drove a CVT also but I just couldn't do it. I would have just ordered one and waited or found one and flown to get it and drive it back!

Since my job includes driving around all of Pierce County in my vehicle, I really didn't want to wait that long. Like I said, I do still have my XRS.
