    I hope i am done.... the car now has passed everything my old prius had and then some, with the exception of the solar panel and the remote ac button.

    The only other thing i toyed with was the idea of the light up kick plates but i have no intention of doing it at this time.

    I think i will keep my eyes opened for the 2018 refresh options and might revisit modding once those are out

    Looks cool, but what this aero splitter can do? Does it improve aerodynamic and MPG? Or helps to keep dirt out of sill?

    Inflections like that can get missed in text based conversation. I think that is why emojis are popular.

    So after some time, i can report that between the splitter and the mud flaps, much of the dirt and salt is prevented from riding up the sides of the car. It snowed quite a few times here and there is a lot of salt on the road. There is some dirt on the car but its not white like the other vehicles around.

    The splitter does stick out far enough to be an issue if you ever went to a carwash. It is wider than the roller track on a conveyor so i suspect it will get damaged.

    Do you use an auto car wash that pulls your car through? I thought we couldn't use those, so what's the correct way to use them with a Gen 4?

    Thanks!
