    I bought Prius C on 2013. It was a new car. In the past few years, I used 140K miles. I want to add something to make the car interesting again. Any suggestion?

    Sounds to me like it's time to shop for a new car.
    If you live in the U.S., it is too bad that the C is no longer available.

    However, I don't want to spend money on a new car.

    Put an aftermarket stereo in the dash- you can gain fancy carplay/android features, or just have better sound.

    The c is one of the easier transplant hosts out there, not a difficult DIY and that also keeps it cheaper if you pay somebody else to do it.

    I had a Prius C and did a few modifications to make it mine own. I suggest you Google JDM Aqua and see what others have done.

    Yea, I get that.
    Exciting......or cheap......take your choice.

    ANY money spent on "bling" will likely just be thrown down the drain.
    Even my flippant suggestion likely would cost you a LOT. :ROFLMAO:

    And consider that the age of your vehicle makes the odds fairly high that you have to start "spending money" on keeping it running in the fairly near future.

    A "newER" car might be an option. It doesn't have to be brand new.

    This is the Gen4 Forum - most here bought a Gen4 because ummm :sleep: ... we thought the Prius c boring.

    I'll request this be moved to the Prius c FORUM - you'll get better answers there.

    EDIT - nothing wrong with the "c" - it's more a budget city car than the all-rounder that the Gen4 is. Good for what it is.

    I recommend the Red bullet and the Injen intake with the Apexi throttler controller.

    My testing showed with the scan gauge back to back on the same road going both directions of knocking 0-60 down 1 second! I'm in the 9s now!!!! Throttle response was also much improved.
