WoW Very Nice
Ok I will make a thread on my previous cars.. where should I post it? In the general forum?
lets just say they were not my first choice for wheels.. If I see the wheels I really want for sale (which I really doubt), then I will sell the Blitz wheels in a heart beat!
Just add them to this thread since it is owned by you.
Here are the detailed pics of the Carmate cupholders:
Installed pics.. Shows you that you can get to the heat switch and the color match with the car (looks like it came from Toyota! Carmate products are great!!):
Oh yah.. and I forgot to post up the license plate frame that is on the car.. A crew from Orlando Florida called "Simply Clean" was selling these.. I LOVE their philosophy!!
Ok! But there are alot!! Here we go!

As you can see I was Honda boy for awhile.. until my civic got stolen.. I went back to honda after going VW/Audi for awhile.. because reliability SUCKED!! So I purchased the TL.. which I LOVED! But then the dash cracked and Acura Corporate would not take care of it.. This is why I left the Honda/Acura family and came to Toyota.. Let's see how this goes! So far I am loving it!!
Not in this forum because a mod will move it, in which case you'd want to provide a link to it.
Surprised the rims aren't your first choice as they're among the best looking aftermarket wheels I've seen for the Prius.
Yah thanks man.. These wheels are awesome! I need to get a 5mm spacer for the front because the center cap wont fit since the axle sticks out so much..
Yah.. I love rims .. Ive had alot .. I used to be a wheel whore.. so I may go back to my old habits.. dogh I hope not..
Where did you get the cupholder at? That is bad ass. I think here are my 3 things I dont like this model vs the model 2.
No Back up cam (unless you get pricy upgrade package)
can only unlock from driver door, where before you could lock and unlock from driver, passenger, & trunk
and no easily accessible cup holders
I fixed the first one already.
I believ the sks upgrade will fix number 2
Now I just need the thing you got and all my complaints are done
I got the cupholder on ebay.. Just search for it.. prius carmate..
I hear you on things I hate about the prius.. the cup holder thing was defintieyl top on my list.. That is why i got the carmate thing for 37.00.. I didnt care.. just wanted more cup holders!! lol
I got navi with back up cam.. cant live without backup cam.. I can install one, but factory is almost always better.. I installed one on my old TL..
The door lock thing will be fixed one day.. because this annoys me too..
The one thing I really hate about my prius is my taillights.. worked on that today!! woot!
Here are some pics my wife took yesterday while in the back seat of her cousins car:
Ok, So the thing I hate the most about the Prius is the taillights! So, I got a hold of a guy that I purchased some vinyl from before online and asked him to make a kit for the Prius(His e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org .. tell him RJ with the Blue Prius sent you!). I wanted red taillights with smoked turn signals and smoked reverse lights.. ~50.00 later I received a set of High Quality Taillight film (He gives a 7 year warranty on the quality of the film).. although I think I am pretty skilled at doing mods, Putting film on taillights was always difficult for me.. Took it to a local tint shop and paid them 40.00.(for a total of ~100.00 I had a reversible taillight mod!). and this was the result!!
Comparison of Stock Taillights vs taillight film (Saw this in a parking lot on the way home and had to take a pic lol)
Pic my wife took following me home from tint shop.. shows the brake lights on.. I will take better pics of turn signal lights and reverse lights later..
I think it looks 100x better!!

That's all the mods for now. Gonna be busy with other things, so no mods for a few weeks.. But I am happy right now with the look!!
Looks great! All your mods have been tastefully done. I think you should also wrap your high mount stop light in red vinyl (ala 32kcolors).
BTW, your rims are very bad @$$. Not sure why you wouldn't want to keep them.
Yes, do this with the leftover tints you have. Very easy to do. Remove two screws and unplug the harness with the tip of a screwdriver. Take the unit out and wrap it. Re-install it and that's it.
ooh I honestly didn't even notice the 3rd brake light.. Thanks gonna do this today!!
I love the wheels, but like I said money talks!
I wish I had some left over, but I purchased the pre made ones that were made for the taillights.. Might just go to tint shop today and get it done! I doubt it will cost more then 30.00.. I'll post up if I do it!
Dangit Just came back from tint shop.. They are too busy today. So maybe Monday. Only 10.00 though!!
Looks awesome! How about some close ups of the tails. I'd like to add these to my Gallery if you dont mind .
I will get some shots for you hopefully by tomorrow!! It is raining, so can't get the best pics right now.. Can I be sponsored if you use the pics?
Also, had the dealership remove the annoying reverse beep and seat belt warnings today for free!!

Awesome car! And I was wondering why Bluebatmobile didn't have overlays for the Prius... it's great to see him here...
Well he does now!! I had to wait a few weeks to have it made, but definitely worth it!! Tell him Rj with the blue prius sent you!!
I think this is my favorite Prius of the ones I've seen. Good work Rj.
