    You got it done. I was talking to Jim Wang over at Work Wheels USA and he showed me pics of your guys' car before it was lowered. Looks great! When does the Junction Produce kit show up? Most importantly, what did you guys use to lower it? That's just the stance I want. I'm car #2 with Tanabe to have possibly some R&D work done with suspension and possibly exhaust. They will only have lowering springs to start which I'm fine with for now but said coilovers would most likely come later. I can't wait to finish my car now after seeing yours well on its way!!

    I got email from JP said they are waiting to ship out but should be around another 4 weeks

    I have air suspension put in, a little bumpy

    They are WORK Wheels Varianza Schwert SC3, 19"x9 all the way around, front tires using FALKEN 452 215/35/19, rear 235/35/19, rear tires are little too wide almost touch my fender

    Any new updates on the coil overs, etc? I know it's been a few months.

    I'm also interested to see how you're liking that air system now that it's been a few months. How much did that cost too?

    Sorry but they are long gone. Sold those to buy the first set of aftermarket wheels over a year ago.

    I bought them through a local import tuning shop. Have seen them listed as a special order on Tire Rack recently. Just be aware, they're not cheap and will take quite awhile to get an it makes the little dings and scuffs that much more painful especially when you're not the one that did it like today at the stereo shop. Was not a happy camper let me tell you. They are at least willing to make it right and fix or replace it if it can't be fixed. Still hurts none the less.

    hi Shawnb

    nice build!!

    i recently got a Prius and very new to the site .. I'm really contemplating on which wheel to go with wether i go 17 or 18 what would you guys say the MPG difference on running 17 vs 18 i have my eye set on the enkei PF01 17x75 or 18x7.5 i Know the tire diameter would be almost the same so that wont be a factor but the weight would be the issue what are your experiences on this .. any help me decide where to go

    On a Geniii I would go with at least an 18. The mpg drop is not likely to be huge between the 17 and 18 but expect to lose at least 4-6 mpg if you are currently running oem 15s.
