Looks great. I assume it wasn't too pricey either. Any other plans for your iM?
Next on the list I'm installing H&R Sport coilsprings for a 2013+ European Toyota Auris (same car pretty much except for the engine choices)... installing them tomorrow. Should lower the car about 1.3" front and back.

I ordered the TRD panel filter as well, but it's not here yet.

Thinking about an exhaust, but may wait to see if anyone makes any decent cat-back systems before hacking up the factory exhaust.

I have been going to the same tint shop for 7 or 8 years this was my 5th car done there. Normally would have been $220. I paid $160.

It pays to be a returning customer and the tint looks great! Where I'm from they don't have a specific percentage for how tinted my windows can be, the decision is up to the cops and if they feel like my windows are too dark...

Here in Iowa you can have anything on the rear doors and hatch, but nothing on the front doors and windshield. The blue iM looks great in your picture. So far I have only seen the Blizzard and Red. Keep up the good progress.

That tint is perfect and is what would be what is legal for most states although you might get pulled over just for the cop to inspect an ensure its a legal level tint.


Just ensure you use tint safe cleaners when the time comes to clean it.

Awesome! Post a picture if you can after they get done with the tint % and brand of film they use. I tinted the front windows a little darker than Virginia law permits (VA law only permits 50% in the front), but I really don't care.

Thank you.... I am a U.S. Navy veteran. Launched a few TLAMS on those f**kers, wish I was still active duty to throw a few more their way.

The license plate is really funny, and very true too. ISIS is really one of the worst things that have popped up in a very, very long time. Seeing the plate on the iM is just hilarious though. I didn't really think that the Navy was involved in the ISIS campaign. Does their "territory" border the ocean?

Glad you're home and glad you believe in the mission (unlike some of the Iraq or Afghanistan veterans, not all, but some).

You can get special plates as a veteran, right? Did that make it easier to get a custom one?

The U.S. Navy is in EVERY campaign. I was a destroyer sailor... you'd be surprised how far Tomahawk missiles go...

I could have gotten special veteran's or even disabled veteran's plates but chose the Red White & Blue ... the VA veteran's plates are pretty dull.

Going through the comments section on the video I didn't realize they expire as one person brought that up:

Those weapons were going to get expired if you don't use them bc they are stored in cold room/temperature controlled room ideally. So this is good for the military industry and the whole economy. War is always good for the economy :) except for prolonged war.

I've been thinking about getting the windows tinted on my iM. Not so much for the look, but I noticed that seats get really warm on a hot sunny day. Would tint on the windows help with that or would it be a waste of time?
