    I need a few accessories. Any place cheaper than the dealer to get them?

    I want the BLACK rear bumper protector.
    I want a rubber rear cargo liner. (I have a beige carpeted one if someone needs one).
    I want side molding to protect against dings. Black or painted to match.
    I need some Toyota OEM oil filters.

    I aready orderd a screen protector for the touch screen. Same place I got one for my Accord NAV. You can't even tell it's on there. I may get the shade for the screen.


    This is option pack #2 with the addition of a 6-disc changer and security system.
    Quick photos of my new Prius

    I was going to get Gold until I saw this one. Not getting any extended warranty, etc.

    I heard of some removing the wheel trim. Anyone have a photo with them off?

    i believe the priuschat shop has all those things (not sure about the oil filiters?)

    you can just pull the "donut" off to see how you like them.... if you want them back on... just put them back on (the buy at the dealer pulled them off both the regular and touring and put them back on.... they really do look better with the donut off!)

    Hmm. I *like* the wheel covers. Plus I figure they protect the rim a bit too. If they get all scuffed up somehow, I can replace them. If the rim gets scuffed up, $$$.

    The OEM oil filters can be found at the dealer for about $4.99. but some buy them by the case on ebay, cant remember the part no. but it is a different number then the one from factory.

    I'll stick with OEM filters. Dealer throws in the first oil change free. Told him I'd do it myself. So they threw in 4 filters. That should hold me a little while.

    I've been using AMSOIL in my cars for 10 years. But now Costco has 5W-30 Mobil 1 for $4.99 Qt. Cheaper than ordering. Now if they would just start carrying 5W-20 for my Hondas !!!

    You may want to try walmart because the one near my house sells mobil1 in all weights for $23 and change for the 5qt jug including the 5w20 for Honda's and newer Ford's. Their m1 extended service oil though runs closer to $30.
