Headed to Carlsbad California Thursday to see the Scion iM "in the flesh".
They are having the unveiling on Wednesday the 12th, but he said it would still be there for me when I come. I should see it Friday morning.


Dealers here in AZ have scaled back arrival time to September at the earliest.

I'll have to check the news to see if there is anything covering this. Do tell us how it is especially if you are able to give it a test drive.

Thanks for letting us know.

I saw this in a review too, so that is what it will look like. I remember because the reviewer made a big deal on how premium it looked.

Would be cool if they gave us a wallet key like what Lexus does since it's a small cost and easier to carry around as a back up.

I found the info for the 2016 Auris 1.8 liter that sold in Europe. It shows same tire/rim size as the 2016 Scion iM. I assume the bolt pattern and thread size also the same too

Tire Rim Bolt pattern THD CB
225/45 R17 7Jx17 ET50 5x114.3 M12 x 1.5 60.1

No, Europe and US cars maybe different.

For example 2015 Corolla in US is 6.5Jx16 ET40 5x100 and in Europe it's 6.5Jx16 ET45 5x114.3

The Lexus CT 200h, which is also the same as the Auris, has 5x100
