    The Prius's reliability, efficiency and futuristic lines.

    The 911's rawness of a fine tuned sports car housed in timeless body... I was surprised it's able to get 22+ mpg on the freeways in it. The 6 gears is the key to that and still can pass most cars with ease.

    Though the 911 is a gorgeous car but the ergonomics of the Prius is still the winner for a DD.

    I went with Philips Xtreme Vision halogens. What a huge improvement over stock and the long viewing range is beyond my expectation.

    "HID kits" in halogen-bulb headlamps or fog/auxiliary lamps (any kit, any lamp, any vehicle no matter whether it's a car, truck, motorcycle, etc.) do not work safely or effectively, which is why they are illegal.

    .

    Same goes for "LED conversion" bulb kits. They are not a legitimate, safe, effective, or legal product. No matter
    whose name is on them or what the vendor claims, these are a fraudulent scam. They are not capable of producing even a fraction of the amount of light produced by the filament bulb they supposedly replace, let alone producing it in the right pattern for the lamp's optics to work.

    You should preach on the threads on HID conversions instead such as the link I listed below. You're not the first to make a statement like this nor will be the last. Just as you assessed the "Xtreme's" are an improvement, I as many others found the same with HID setup. I've been running them for 3 years now and I have yet to get "flashed" once.

    I just purchased a 2013 Persona myself in the pearl. About ready to do the tint and still debating the TRD springs. Love the clean look you have for sure though. My question is about your rear roof antenna, is that something that came factory or did you add that yourself?
