    Two items to add regarding the Plus package:

    #1 Lowering springs, 17" wheels and a rear sway bar make a HUGE difference in cornering ability. It transforms the Prius into something a lot closer to a real sports car. Trust me. :D

    #2 Sell the TRD sway bar on priuschat shop. A lot of members here highly recommend the mod but it ends up being purchased somewhere else.

    Look, no body roll!
