    My name is D, im new to this group so if this post is in the wrong thread plz don't mind. I just want to show what i did on my prius so far, comment and recommendation is always appriciated! I just own this baby for a week and this is what i spent so far:

    Tail light tint: $100 at (TW Tinting) 714- 543-4677

    Wheels+tire (17inch Kyowa Evo Flat Black)= $850 (JW motorsport in bellflower) 562-866-1761

    Spray paint for emblems= $6 at (Autozone)

    License Plate LED+ Parking LED light = $22 at (iJDMTOY.com Customer Service Contact Us Rquest Customize LED Package)
    Really love this LED light. Super white and bright at night.

    Im still looking for Bodykit but not sure where to buy them. If anyone knows where I can pick up locally then please let me know. BTW I live in Cerristos, CA :)

    Hope you enjoy seeing my photos :D 12-1.jpg 12-2.jpg 12-3.jpg 12-4.jpg 12-6.jpg 12-5.jpg View attachment 42223 View attachment 42224 12-7.jpg 12-8.jpg 12-9.jpg 12-10.jpg 12-11.jpg 12-13.jpg

    What % tint is it on the tails? 15?

    Also did you take the emblems off to paint or did you plasti-dip the, while on the car.

    Looks good

    It looks so good on white cars. :) You don't have to go very dark either.

    Sorry joshua I'm not sure how many % cuz the guy had the sample tinted tail lights on the table ( light, medium and dark) I picked the medium and my guess would be about 20%.
    I used a very thin knife to pull the rear emblem. You could use a thin knife then insert a sharp surface right on top of the emblem and start pulling it out using that knife then use ur other hand to help. Make sure you do it slowly so you won't crack the clips.
    Front emblem is much easier cuz I have a tiny hands :) Pop up the hood looking down somewhere at emblem area there is a small hole, if you have a tiny hands like mine then you could put ur hand inside that hole and start pressing right & left clips toward each other then push it out at the same time pressing it and use ur other hand to help pulling from outside. I'm sorry for my bad English. Have a great day my friend!

    Welcome to the forum. Nice job on the car so far.

    For body kits take a look at Jucied Hybrid
    2010 & 2011 Prius Body Kit
    They have the best price I could find on the Five Axis Kit painted and ready for install. If your interested in the TRD Kit there is a vendor on E Bay that sells them for the 2012s

    Not to be dumb. But this "parking light" that people keep saying they're changing to LED. This is the orange side parking light on the front lamp? Anyone got a picture of theirs with LED lit? I'm curious to see the effect. Also, how easy is that install?

    Another note about park lights. Used to be JDM Toyotas with automatic lights would turn on the park lights auto at dusk...and then turn on full headlamps at dark. I was curious to see whether the Prius would do that but mine doesn't seem to. Then again though neither do my other cars with auto lights. But they're not Japanese so I was still hoping.

    The red line I circled, that's the parking light, and most people change it to led bulbs, it uses a 194 wedge bulb :) Hope that helps :p
