    Looks cool as long as it's not too bright

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I was hoping someone here already had it and could tell us more about it.

    Wow, check out the rest of the products for the Prius C/Aqua in that link.
    What the heck is a rear fog light (page 2 for 400 of whatever their money is)?

    For people in the back can see your car in the snow or fog?
    To see better when backing up in snow/fog?
    To make your car brighter in the rear?

    Opps - the catalog is from a retailer in Alhambra, California and prices are in U.S. Dollars for Toyota/Lexus Japan OEM accessories.

    Interesting stuff but I don't see a rush for $182 wheel locks (page 3) in the US or Japan.

    What the heck is a clean box (page 4 for $73)? I'm guessing a clip-on garbage can thing-a-ma-jig.

    Holy Cow. Those prices are killers. But, I am glad to see that someone is making the lower side mouldings. A set of those will be added to my list.

    Yeah I know most of that stuff is CRAZY pricy.. I'm sure as time passes more companies will start to sell aftermarket parts and they'll get cheaper. Until then the LED knob is all I can afford!!

    You might take the knob off and see if you can wire in a 1 dollar led from Radio Shack. I have not had the knob off. I too thought a dimly lit led shining through the blue would look nice.

    Looks cool, but should be easily done for under $10

    Yep, I've had mine off a number of times, I get bored sitting in traffic.

    How would the LED shift knob wire in? I have a blue Prius C so now I'm hooked on all things "blue" to tie in the predominantly black-interior cabin space with the exterior color... :D

    I would think you want to wire it into the lights. When you turn on park lights knob light will come on.
