    After seeing the eBay link you posted, I searched eBay and found this.
    For Toyota Prius Prime 2020 LeBra 551708-01 Custom Black Front End Cover | eBay
    This LeBra has very similar part nuber as the one you listed but without "a" on the end.

    Part Number: 551708-01

    And, the description of the item by this seller says:
    • 'Breathable' vinyl to withstand moisture
    • Does not need to be removed when wet
    Do you think this is the same material as the one you have on your Gen4?

    I spent a little less than $1200 to get STEK on the whole front hood, mirrors side panels and door cups:):

    Very pleased with the work;).

    And a side benefit was the removal of the side emblems. Go emblemless(y).

    Yeah. And I would be very skeptical about an eBay accessory for a Toyota Prius that lists the LeBra with a photo of it installed on a Dodge Challenger. At best, the seller is just lazy, but more than likely this is from a seller who is having trouble selling the product and is trying to get rid of overstock. The instructions for the LeBra that I bought also states that the product is "breathable". I am guessing that the seller latched on to this and conveniently extended the interpretation of it to mean that it could left installed indefinitely, while ignoring the warnings that explicitly stated the opposite.

    Unfortunately eBay does have some seller that do this. To check for this, look at the sellers approval score. You will probably see that he or she rates below 90%. Generally, any seller below 90%, or low qty sales to his or her credit, should be considered "high risk". For the ones with low scores, a cursory glance at the negative reviews, usually reveals why.

    I agree. I asked the seller about the fitment of the item specifically on PRIME as well as keeping it on after being wet. I got this answer. Obviously, according to the answer, it does not even fit on PRIME.

    Thank you for choosing CARiD on eBay.

    This part fits the following models of 2020 Toyota Prius:

    Base
    Prius AWD-e LE / XLE Without Air Foils
    L Eco / Limited / XLE Without Air Foils

    Unfortunately, we do not have information about part # 551708-01a and other information about the cover is not available. All the details can be found on the listing.​

    We got a bra for our brand new 1990 Honda Civic Si back in the day when they were all the rage. Haven't bought once since. Bottom line: the Con's are bigger than the Pro's and are a lot of hassle to take on/off which can eventually lead to bigger issues with paint wear if you leave it on and dirt/moisture works it way underneath.
