    I was looking at some chrome accessories to put on my new Prius. In Europe we can get those chrome stripes at the underside of the doors, a similar strip on the underside of the fifth door, and/or a small chrome stripe just over the rear license plate.

    In Japan you can also get a chrome strip on the front of the car, and a big chrome strip on the fifth door. I like those two (not the other ones), but does anyone know if these two strips are sold in Japan only?

    Thanks for the link. I would only need itesm 2 and 4 from the Styling Package Plated Version, My Japanese reading isn't that good, but it seems there are prices for separate items on that Japanese web site.

    Edit:

    I just noticed on one of your links that the items that I like are sold in Japan for 35,000 Yen, or € 262, or US$ 367. Now I only need to find someone who can sell these two items to me.

    I'll take possession of the modellista front grill garnish sometime this week. I'll upload some pictures once I have them installed. Still debating on the rear ones.

    Thanks for pointing this out to me. I hadn't noticed, it was very late in the evening for me :) . The pictures of the 3rd link you sent me give a very good impression how the chrome trim will look. I think it will look great on the blue Prius I have on order. These pictures also seem to show the stainless steel rear bumper protector which I ordered.

    I just ordered the Front Grille and the Rear Garnish. Can't wait to see my dealers face when I ask him to put these things on my new Prius when it arrives in September.

    I just had a look at the chrome rings for the foglights. I had hoped they would replace these ugly grey plastic inserts in front of the fog lights. Alas, this is not the case. They are just two flimsy chrome rings on the outside of these grey plastic inserts. You can still see lots of grey plastic around them, and inside towards the fog lights. In fact these rings look a bit pathetic. And for that price!

    Has anyone consired having these grey things chrome plated? it is possible!

    Wonder if color coding the fog surround is possible?

    No, not yet. The chrome parts are still somewhere in a customs warehouse, and the Prius may still be in Japan, or perhaps on a ship to Europe :).

    At the web site of Sigmaautomotive you can find a couple of pictures that will give you good impression of these items.
