    I've been visiting PriusChat since I got my Prius (silver #6) May 26.
    I just registered to post that I just received my Clean Air Sticker (#HE068400) a few days ago.

    I love the prius (now that I added lumbar supports to the seats and some bass to the audio system). I doubled my gas mileage and gas is almost free since my work gives me $60/month for driving a hybrid. I got an extra .25% off my financing interest rate. AND FEEL GOOD DRIVING IT.


    Thanks for all the information.
    So far, this site has helped me:

    1) get a $2195 refund on my Toyota Platinum Warranty and repurchase it for $990
    2) install a Kenwood powerered subwoofer
    3) install powered lumbar support
    4) remove rings off my wheels
    5) silence beeping while reversing
    6) learn what the B mode really for

    future plans:
    - fumoto oil valve (or Fram SureDrain)
    - tow hitch (I saw posting about melting bumper from Curt hitch)
    - EV switch from Coastaletech
    - buy toyota oil filters from ebay
    - K&N air filter

    other accessories/mods I have:
    - 2 layers of window tint with v-cool and standard tint
    - 3M clear bra
    - sheepskin seat covers for front seats from Costco ($40/seat)
    - all weather floor mats from Costco. not perfect fit, drivers side required cutting. color matches

    Welcome! We need a club for cool dudes with silver #6!

    (btw, the Curt hitch thing is being resolved as we speak. They are incorporating my redesign ideas (!) and the new product will be in production soon.)
