I'm 55 and have been looking at smaller cars for a while. My wife just happened to be out of town when I noticed the iM and after reading the reviews, liked the styling and of course the price was right I decided to go get one. I'm waiting on it to be shipped in since they only had 2 on the lot and not my color. Anyway she arrived back home and I told her I have something to tell you. I said honey I had a mid life crisis moment while you were gone and paused after I said that. I was wondering what she was thinking. I told her I bought the iM. She smiled and laughed and said you have been wanting something to play with for a while. my main reason was I needed a commuter to drive back and forth to work since it is 40 miles each way. So here I sit reading the forum making my mod and shopping list hoping to get a call any day now. I'll add stuff when the new addition arrives.
