Well, one thing is for sure. We aren't going to be getting the wide body kit that we saw in LA on the production model. Disappointing, but expected.

In what other way do you think the widebody can show up seeing how it's not on these?
Maybe in after market parts, but I don't think the production model is going to have a different body on it -- not something that will bring the wide body into the fold at least.

We also aren't getting the awesome panoramic sunroof that Austrailia has. But we are getting a standard shark fin antenna!

Where did you come across that? Not that it surprises me, thats a far too upmarket option, must keep Scion from stepping on toes...

I'm sure he visited the Australian website to find out about that ;)

or already has knowledge from elsewhere about what the aussie version comes with.

Yup I checked out the Corolla Levin ZR & the other Corolla hatchback models on Toyota's Austrailian site.

I would've expected it since the tC was well known to come standard with a panoramic roof.

Still a good chance that it could be available
it's something popular in the american market and to stay inline with that is a good reason for them to include it.

I feel like most cars in NA have sunroofs. I like that it gives you some more natural light in the car. I would opt for it if it was offered. I just hope that the Scion iM comes with exciting features instead of it being dumbed down because of cost considerations or something.

Sunroofs for me are great as unlike cracking a window open, you don't have things flying around, like if you're smoking in your vehicle... you don't get ashes flying all over the place and still get the ventilation you want.

True, but I don't like to smoke in the car. Makes everything smell bad.

The more windows the better IMO. I like the cars where there is the panoramic sun roof that makes the majority of the roof glass.

some good speculation on it here but shouldn't be too much longer till we finally hear what it will be like.
No I meant price is what will keep the above mentioned glass roof out of the equation. iM will be a poor mans Corolla, can't have it pushing up into the big mans territory...
