Share what you did today with the Scion iM community!

Example: Picked up the iM and went for a drive down to the beach and stared at her...

Example: Finally got my window tints done, now I can't open my windows for a week :(

Anything goes....

Took a rubber mallet to the stock oval finisher and offed with it (slides off with some force only being held in by protrusions). Replaced it with a better looking one (to me anyways :)) from an Accord Coupe V6 (MY_2003-2005 or also first generation TSX). It's got somewhat of a snug fit on there but I'm not taking any chances so I used the securing screw that comes with it & hand tightened it down some more. I really dig the less flashy, chiseled, and angular look of it.

Also found a cargo net I didn't know I had laying around and it fits right up, save the two lower securing points which I had to zip tie it down to the metal holders that are visibly situated behind the rear seats.

There should be 2 attachment points on the bottom for the net. Just need 2 carabiner clips to attach them.

Good to see you're not touching the clear bulb part of the assembly since i've seen way too many people on the forums do that!

How much did you pay for them?

i paid too much @ $32.99 a set.
so the mirror white, when facing a wall, has less yellow showing. not too shabby, let's see how long it lasts now.

Yesterday I installed the TRD air filter, removed the secondary air filter, changed the break-in oil, added a set of all-season floor mats, and installed factory mud guards. Not a bad day.

Picked this up down at the Targets yesterday and for $49.99 and some change + 30 minutes of my time, not too terrible I think. As you can see the interior liner is uneven out back for some reason so I had to do an uneven trim on the mat. I could've trimmed everything off and just used the checkered portion but at the same time I wanted max coverage. Good enough, no body is gonna see it anyways.

Decided to see how big the trunk space really is so I did a human test. It fits exactly 1 person and a cup of coffee. :D Maybe even more if I tried hard enough.
Sorry for the potato quality.
okay so a body does fit in the cargo? good to know...

*laughs menacingly*

I just bought it yesterday, so today I drove it and admired it. Listened to some d12, thriftworks.

I looked at it a little bit.

I am planning to do some major suspension and wheel changes... (As soon as they come out from hiding)

My lab puppy chewed on my wheels.. yes chewed on them! So Im saving up to either get them re painted / powder coated or get new wheels. I cant do anything till around February so I decided to dip them black, mainly to hide the huge gouges in my wheels and to see how I like them blacked out. So far they look awesome.. Im really liking it.

Sorry to hear about the puppy damage. How on earth does a pup get the idea that a rim is something interesting to chew on??? Aren't shoes more enticing?

Looks like you made the best of the situation though. I really like the look of your black on black color scheme. I think the stock rims look better all blacked out!
