Got my IM a few months back, I work for Toyota and have always wanted one. Really happy with the way it performs. Just put cross bars on it and roof basket and hopefully more updates as time goes on.
Do you work at the corporate? I wonder what the word is on the 2019 iM model change. It sounds like all new TNGA global platform, but spy photos make it look almost the same on the outside. If they make it with a stick shift, better engine, push button start and better interior, I will be buying it the same day it comes out.

It surprises me how many people mention push button start as a big deal. I have 2 cars that have it but I don't see what the big deal is. I still use the remote to unlock and lock the doors most of the time and inserting the key and twisting just isn't a big deal. I do wish that Toyota offered different engine options. Keep the 137HP 1.8L but also offer a 200HP 1.6L turbo or something like that for those that want it. I can tell you that after turbocharging this same basic engine in my 2009 Corolla S it would be amazing. My Corolla now sports 230HP at the crank and 195HP at the wheels and it hauls @ss!!!! :D
