    I have been waiting to see a magnetic grey with hood deflector myself. I was hoping that someone would have pictures.

    Hmmm......maybe it is down to you or I who will be the first???

    Keep us posted if you take the plunge, and I will do the same.

    Hey sandman. Sorry I don't have a pic of one on grey. I ordered one for my silver and I should get it in two days. I was just wondering what you have heard good or bad about the hood deflector? I hope it helps protect against further dings and deep scratches on the front of my hood. My Prius is only 2 1/2 weeks new and the hood looks like it has been on a 2 year road trip. What have you heard about the deflector? Any special precautions in install?

    Ours is magnetic gray and we are also thinking about purchasing a hood deflector. We will post pictures once we make the purchase.

    I am also very interested in how this looks. I have had my Mag Grey prius since August of last year and have accumulated enough minor chips and nicro scratches to consider either a deflector or a black car bra. I have seen a couple of versions of a prius car bra and it does not look half bad on a dark color. Way better than what I expect the front of my car will look like in another year at this rate!

    Yea, pics for post-installation please!

    Where did you order the Hood Deflector, can you post link/site?
    Does it fit well and non-intrusive?

    Bought it through Sigma Automotive. $90 + the $30 shipping. Hopefully it shows up and I get time to put it on. Busy weekend coming up.

    No affect on MPG. No wind noise. Excellent protection.

    Well worth the $52.50 + shipping.

    :whoo:

    That's a nice product. I'm going to have to look into adding that to the PriusChat Shop.
