    I need these 360 degrees around my entire car, apparently. Even parking in the most remote part of the lot at work, yesterday someone in a white vehicle managed to scrape the back of my Prime. Upper and lower rear bumper, along with one vertical corner tail lite were scraped. The foot wide white paint marks wiped off fairly easily. Then there's the constant danger of grocery carts winging into the car. Force fields. That's what's needed. But that might drain the traction battery some while it's parked.

    Force fields are a great idea! Maybe someday we'll have them! For now, we have to settle for low-tech body side molding.

    In my country the side moldings are available only on black color, anyway I am happy about the effect, all in all my car is all black and white (Pearl white to be precise)

    Ceemore - what was involved with installing your Aero Side Splitters? Drilling involved? Also are these just a cosmetic addition or do they add any protection?

    Where did you order from and how much? Also, do they come with instructions? Would like to get a set and install on my magnetic gray.
    Thx, Ben

    There is a parallel thread on this:
    See: Questions about Prius Prime Options | Page 3 | PriusChat
    Also: Side moldings | PriusChat

    EDIT: Corrected...Initial post had a reference to the wrong thread.
    EDIT2: Here are the proper part numbers:

    PT938-47160-20 0070 Blizzard Pearl
    PT938-47160-01 01F7 Classic Silver Metalic
    PT938-47160-03 03T7 Hypersonic Red
    PT938-47160-11 01G3 Magnetic Gray Metallic
    PT938-47160-17 0791 Blue Magnetism
    PT938-47160-04 04X1 Steele Blonde
    PT938-47160-10 0040 Super White

    I've seen them as low as $160 online from Toyota dealers
