Yea, so exciting. This is going be the first car arrived in dealership as well. Only 1 blue color in manual for the first batch of shipment . The dealership show me there are 30 iM coming in the local dealership but only 6 of them are manual. And only 1 in blue color.

Keep all inform about any updates.

Must be a decent sized dealership. Here at the one I work for we are only getting 3 iM's initially. Unfortunately, I think all of those are going to be autos.

the Toyota dealership just remodel couple months ago..they state they are the largest dealership in the state.
the salesman I talk to is not very helpful..I end up talking to one of the manager on the sales department. He print out the shipment of the iM and iA of their dealership.
6 manual..and only 1 blue color... there are 20 some auto coming at the same batch.

It show on the paper, the build date is 07/27, but I already got my VIN and shipment date. the manager mention the car will be here 2-3 weeks from now. could be anytime sooner.

once it arrive the lot, i will get notify. I want to take a peak before they took the white plastic cover off the car.

Woo Hoo! I just put a deposit down on a Blizzard Pearl Manual!


Should be here in a couple of weeks.


It took a lot of calls to various dealers. Some, it was like pulling teeth to get them to find the info.


The one I am using is Avondale Scion. If you are in AZ, call Elgin at 602-717-3538. He was great!

Meant to add....there doesn't appear to be any extra charge for Blizzard Pearl. Cars don't have prices on their invoices yet, but the saleman reiterated the price of 19,255 ,which is the set price for the manual.

Glad to see these orders starting to roll through on the forum, especially after seeing all the details we need to know about it just to buy with pricing being one of the main things.

Did you guys ask your dealer about any other iM orders they've put through?

The dealer I ordered from did say that another one was being considered, but that the person did not put a deposit down yet.


Each dealer is only getting two or three initially.

I did not ask...this is the first year of the 2016 Scion iM..expecting a big sale on 2015 year

When I bought my 2013 FR-S back in December 2012, the first year they release the car. it is a hot cake. I know the first few month when I visit the dealership..you wont able to see one on the lot..because those are already been preorder by others.

Scion is good on this..they push little to the market..test water..when the demand is over supply..then people start talk about it and spread out the news.

for $19225 (my car's price). this is a toy to play with. just like FR-S..Ibuy it because it is easy to modified and tons of choice on car parts..not like M3, STi. too pricy to maintain and buy parts

Scion iM will have lots aftermarket car parts coming out after the car is released. Plus..maintenance is very low. the 2013 FR-S I had no problem after 35K miles on it. i do my regular maintenance at home myself. all the parts are easy bolt on and play-plug.

I will expecting iM will do as good as FR-S..again..remember the Scion iM use the 1.8-liter I-4 producing 137 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque..same engine as 2015 Corolla Eco. very good review on this engine from lots Japanese car site. do your research about it. Toyota invest so much money to produce this new engine for the Corolla Eco. you can read more online..

i am done..typing alot on my iphone..it is tire.

Having been into tuning and modifiying cars, aftermarket parts is one area i'll be interested in specifically with exhaust and air intake since those are almost always my first mods to do.

So all the dealers in my area in Southern California never even heard of this car. How can I preorder?

Call around to several different dealers. I did a search and sent in a request to each of the dealers within 100 miles of me from their websites. I found out that only one or two stores in my area are getting manuals. One 40 minutes away is getting a red manual (my preference) so I told her to call me a little closer to when she shows it being delivered.

@peacenoel, did you order floormats with your iM? I looked on my dealer software with your vin from above and saw the package "CF" was on it. That is the carpeted floor mats and rear cargo mat package. Did they tell you how much extra that option is?

I have communicated with a dealer in Santa Monica and he know about the car. I didn't ask him about pre-ordering. Call him and see what he says.
