    Not sure. I don't get it until tomorrow so I'll let you know. I don't think it'll be worth $200+ after its said and done but I'll know more tomorrow when I see it myself.

    Paint + spoiler for $200? One guy wanted to charge me $500 to paint roof spoiler and front spoiler. I just went out and bought some paint. Going to do it this weekend.

    Nah, the lip I got is only $99 and its unpainted. The guy that is asking is wondering if its worth it to go through the trouble of paying the extra on top to get it sent to where he lives in another country.

    That stinks!!! I'm really sorry.

    I saw lots of totaled cars this weekend. It could have been worse for you, my friend. And at least the repair will come out clean. But still... it stinks.

    Ouch, that sucks, that's why I advocate putting wire mesh behind the grills. Don't know if it would've prevented damage in your situation, but it couldn't have been worse. :(

    It's a lil scratched

    Good thing I actually have an extra complete radiator core assembly with condenser

    Unfortunately being that it punctured a hole in the condenser I highly doubt Wire mesh would have stopped it :cry:

    I had to take my Prii to the dealership after my mechanic found a leak.

    Luckily it was covered under warranty.

    Having separation anxiety. I brought it in yesterday and won't get it back until hopefully tomorrow.

    It makes me nervous that they actually have to drop the engine to fix the problem. Crazy

    But if I don't fix it, could be a problem in the future. The leak is neglible according to some of the independent shops I spoke to.
    Some say it's best to leave it alone.

    I did not want to take chances so I am having it repaired under warranty.

    What the repair describes is #19. While the engine is out they will perform a full inspection of any other problems while they have it open.

    Leak could also be possibly at #17, the timing chain tensioner o ring.
    :(:eek:(n):unsure:

    Prii is back in good health. She's all sealed up and ready for another 55k.(y)

    Attached is what was done under warranty. It took the dealer 8 hours to do all the work.

    That was quick. I take it they didn't need to pull the motor after all?
