    LOL! My "free cleaning event" is scheduled for this weekend. To bad cause I was enjoying the silver/yellow shade of spring.

    I do find it odd that I have yet to see another Silver Prius with the windows tinted. It just doesn't look as sleek without it done, IMO. I actually don't even like looking at the Silver without it...

    Yeah my Mazda6 also had tinted windows, which look good with any color but silver especially. The two seem to compliment each other.

    Looking to get my Prius windows tinted soon.

    They do go well together, but Silver and Black are Raiders colors. Yuck! :p

    So, the ladies seem to be digging my car lately. I had a young woman in my car yesterday who kept freaking out about all of the "high-tech" gadgetry...

    She also liked that it was Silver. She said it look "sophisticated". Ha!

    The dealer tinted the windows before I bought my Prius -- and I agree, the silver looks better that way.

    I still don't know why most people don't tint their windows. It reduces UV and keeps the inside cool. It also hides ugly passengers from public view...

    My silver hybrid car at work (image to the left) is a bit nicer than my silver 2010.... I still like each one (well - maybe I have a slight preference)...

    Silver Fisker Karma.....

    Currently the only production *car* to run 22" wheels as a standard (21s are also offered - but only in case you need the ability to put on snow chains/cables).

    So you can run 22s during the summer, and swap to 21s for winter driving (provided you really want to put cables on a very expensive car)...

    They are kinda cool.....:cool:

    Okay, I have one. Silver seemed to be the best. Since this pic the center wheel caps have been added.

    I went with a custom tint with the highest UV rating. I also installed side molding to reduce parking lot dings. Here's my silver 2011 Prius, buff-waxed and road-ready.

    We're very happy with our Classic.... doesn't show the winter/spring dirt and grime like other colors. ;)
