    @xliderider, I thought the same thing after I put it on the steering wheel. I already purchased it, so I might as well use it. Definitely takes getting use to. :D

    Once I have $$$$ to spend, maybe an upgrade from Japan. (y)

    @andino, might need your help on this one.:whistle:

    Really like the smoked tails with our color car. Just fits better.

    Here we go again testing out a new JDM LED Foglamp Kit for Angry Panda! At 2.2lbs each this is a very solid kit which includes built in heat sinks - with the instructions in Japanese warning you to properly aim the lights or it will blind drivers :eek::eek: Another Guinea Pig experiment :LOL::LOL:

    The problem with the JDM spec lights are that they are setup for driving on the left side of the road, so the beam pattern isn't ideal for driving on the right side of a 2 lane road, as we do in the US.

    This might be a simpleton's solution, but what would happen if you trade lights or lenses left and right?

    The housings/lenses are angled outward from the center of the vehicle, so swapping mounts, lenses, or housings isn't possible.

    Hahaha! I knew you were going to chime in @xliderider:D Will keep you in the loop for the install, but remember these lights have the same mounting position as my Toyota OEM foglights with the option of adjusting the polar axis. Only time will tell! Thanks for your feedback it is greatly appreciated (y)

    @xliderider :cool: Since a majority of Manufactures' that produce fog-lights for the Prius are from another Country, could they all be aimed at the wrong side? Food for thought or just overthinking :cautious:

    I'm gonna be very optimistic here & say that based on the pic it appears to be a flat cutoff which would be correct for a fog light.

    Time will tell

    Tested laminate / vinyl swatches for trunk setup. Pulled the trigger on a case of TrafficMASTER Allure in ironwood.

    Should throw this in today. I'm pretty sure someone else has done it before; did you notice any changes? Better MPG, anything?

    Yeah, a lighter wallet. ;)

    I like the idea of this washable, reusable and oiless filter.
