    Hello everyone!

    My wife just bought 2010 Prius III in Blue Ribbon Metalic 2 weeks ago. Her sister pick up '10 Prius II with leather in Classic Silver Metalic a week prior, so it snowball her motivation. She don't get on the forum, so here I am.:D

    No solar roof or navigation but still, very nice car. Ride smooth and get decent mileage too, to put it lightly. Looking forward to learn more about the car and adding a few personal touches to make it ours. Cheers!

    If so, it isn't factory leather. It's either PIO, dealer installed, or the owner took the car to an upholsterer.

    Thank you. Not sure if its port install or dealer install, but its on there when she bought the car. That much I know.

    Already hook the car up with clear bra and rear bumper applique. Gotta keep the blue ribbon looking new for years to come.

    Did a bit of reading and just want to confirm, so all the new Sunshade for front windshield comes with side wings for those little window?
