    I've seen some mods that PC member's did to their cars that look fantastic. Clint should stick to driving...

    I'm not a huge fan of the multi color paint job and side graphics, but the wheels look cool and the overall look of the car is unique. I don't think the bashing comments associated with the article (not the Prius Chat comments, the ones that other people are posting) are fair/reasonable.

    Judging by the mods that I have seen on various cars, I think it is obvious that the mods are done to please the owner. Otherwise, why would people spend money on things that they bolt on, stick on or paint on their cars.

    But, being considerate of others, we choose to keep our opinion to ourselves. After all, you wouldn't ask a friend if he has planned to make an appointment to have his daughter's teeth straightened.;)

    Meah . . . . too bad he didn't mod the interior by removing the fly bridge. That'd get my attention.

    Looks like they did a really slick side mirror replace with video cameras...

    I.d like to see more info on it... aftermarket or true custom?

    Putting a big computer monitor in place of the upper glovebox while doing nothing to the rest of the interior is utterly ridiculous. There are plenty of examples of interior mods on this site that are more attractive.
