    Latest Prius Body Kit from AutoLabo, Japan, is now available in the US, and had its first driving test at Malibu Coast, California.
    It's shape is quite unique and outstanding, designed by aerodynamics concept for further higher fuel efficiency of Prius.

    Looks great. I especially like the front and side skirts. The rear bumper comes up a little too high IMO but nice nevertheless.

    different strokes I guess. Looks like a bunch of plastic slapped on that totally breaks up the natural lines to me.

    The Wings West body kit is a bit less dramatic ... except for the roof and deck spoilers which are a bit odd. I agree, though, body kits aren't for everyone, and some are better than others even if you do like them. I would imagine that the general Prius community wouldn't be into the body kits much, though I could be wrong.
