    Hello Guys,
    I am new to the community, I have a Prius 2008 and I am trying to modify it. I want to install some rims I was thinking MOTEGI RACING® - MR141 Satin Black more details because I really want those lines on the rims if you know what I mean, something evenly spaced out, this was something close to my imagination but I am open to suggestions since I don't know much about cars. Secondly I want to install a car play that is a good one but shouldn't be that expensive with a backup camera must But is it possible not to give up my stock screen that I have ? I seen in a youtube video a person installed a car play under the original screen I believe the place where the CD and radio part is. Thirdly I wanted to put some new lights, I dont know how many lights are on this car, I know about the headlight, taillight and the interior lights, My friend has installed some LED lights on all of these places I think and I would like to do the same. And I am not a mechanic so I also I wanted to restore the headlights, any suggestions which product is easy to use to restore the lights ? I was also thinking of getting this car Matte White color, do you think that is a good idea it is already white.
    Regards,
    Please let me know.

    Just FYI, it's illegal to to switch your headlights to LED. The other lights are fine though. There are possibly fog lights in the bumper, tail lights and signals, and parking/running lights. I'm not sure what you mean by push start. A 2008 should already be pushbutton start.

    Oh I don’t even know the difference between any of those lights so I need Guidence as to which are the suitable light to put, I am just trying to modify so replacing lights I thought would be a good idea. I meant the remote start.

    I'm not much of a modder so others will probably be more useful to you. https://carid.com might have drop-in LEDs for all the lights besides the headlights. Or RockAuto.

    Seems like a lot of work compared to just pushing the start button...

    They sell kits for headlight restoration. Meguiar's has a good kit for that. For LEDs I've used precisionled in the past and they have good youtube videos.
