    I just bought a 2008 Prius with 20k miles and a Hymotion pack installed with the upgraded rear suspension. I'm overwhelmed with all the new stuff, but loving it. The first thing I noticed was that the sound system sounded pretty good but the radio reception wasn't so hot. I've already seen a shark fin antenna on this forum...does this improve reception or is it just stylish? Any other "no-brainer" upgrades I should look at? Love the forum so far...makes me miss my Lexus not even a little bit...

    Thanks for being here!

    I sure will post some mpg info once I figure out what I'm doing...I'm really excited about my future experiments and lessons to be learned.

    There is a blue Hymotion just a couple blocks down the street from me, been there 18 months.

    At least these was one. I'd better go check to see if it is still there.

    If there is a new Nissan Leaf in that driveway, then I bought their Prius.

    A check today reveals the Hymotion still there. No Leaf in my neighborhood.
