    I got that from a california ebay seller. Then I decided to go with the Stage10 Electronic shifter and never used it. PM me if you're interested.

    Which color of Stage 10 did you buy? I love my Stage 10 black shifter. I got the LHD vs RHD. Going to sell my Prius G shifter coming soon.

    I have the flat black color. I think it blends well with the various black and grey shades and texture of the prii interior.

    It was more work than I thought it would have been but for it completed & everything was working. (ie: nav, BT, Backup cam).

    I even installed a turn stalk with auto & fog light switch. Got the auto headlights working after changing out the BCM.

    VS980 4G ?

    Probably belongs in the fuel economy section, but I'm already noticing a mpg bump with the lower pri. :D

    Anyone attempted this DVD hack? Look dangerous. Not sure about playing with the e brake wire is a good idea.

    the e-brake wire is just a signal wire. it has no effect on your E-brake. By grounding it, it fools the DVD player that the e-brake is up.

    Which switchback leds did you get? Have heard of issues with many of them.

    Sent ?.

    Installed an SSL Lopro8 amp/sub under the driver's seat. Pretty happy for less than $100. Not a huge bass fan and only like hearing it INSIDE the car.

    Greetings from Canada! I haven't posted here for many months but I am still alive and the Prius is doing well.

    DSC00062.JPG

    No new mods since my last post. I do want to mention that the Tanabe coilovers are super comfortable and I don't regret installing them at all - they took probably a few months to break-in and soften up though. Even with coilovers and low profile tires, I have not heard any creeks and squeaks... The only rattle i hear is sometimes from the drivers side window when it is rolled down and I hit a bump. Other than that, the driveability and comfort of the car make it a very practical commuter / road trip vehicle.

    However, I would like to get a new WRX. Don't get me wrong, I still love my practical Prius and will keep this car. I just want a more powerful, exciting, and menacing car to occasionally drive :)

    That Blaid antenna looks good. I saw it on Kyoei-USA Prius pictures and was wondering what it was.

    You didn't use the right button. Which button did you use? Try other buttons til you get to the green bar screen.

    BTW even if you get to the green bar menu, there's still not much settings to change. It's mostly diagnostic and informational. Try APP then parking lights on off on off on off. If that doesn't work, then SETUP, then CAR, then Phone. One of those button will get you to the green bar diagnostic menu.
