    Do you suggest something else? I can only see whats on e-bay & can be delivered to NZ, with the exchange rate nothing is cheap here... :( and if its over $400 NZD we have to pay 15% extra in NZ There are ones I see that I love a full Led these are near on $1000 delivered.

    Thanks for that - I have not seen any of these in person, only photos on the web, the options are limited to about three on e-bay - there are these but I kind of prefer the Less that curve downwards.

    Id go for the smoked valenti`s, im sure there is more places that sells them, like aliexpress, rakuten, etc.
    Even tho the crystaleye ones on the top looks pretty cool in the dark lol, hybirdpit sells them for 500 USdollars i think. It was a little to expensive for me. Anyways, it was the valentis i had my eyes on.

    And it seems like NZ doesnt cars dont require a rear fog light, which is a little weird cause the biggest car exterior lighting dealer in the world (hella.com) is in NZ... I have no idea why they sells ECE certified fog light strips for cars and trucks when its not mandatory.

    Looks amazing, but then the whole car is upgraded - Wonder if they would suit the metallic blue I have... worth a try but I'll need to do something about my wheels / alloys as they won't suit the new lights!

    Yes there are holes behind the badges, so I went ahead and applied fiber glass and bondo to cover them up and painted them after or you can wrap the trim as well!

    It's about time you posted these lights up. Just installed a set on Angry Panda. Not bad at all for the price


    iPhone ?

    I actually like these a lot lol. To be fair, this isn’t a good picture. I attached a few higher res photos. Still haven’t decided if I’ll get them at 500+ tbh

    I DO like idea of clear with my trim, but I haven’t seen it in person. The reds are clearly are not the same shade which I’m not a fan of. I think that’s the main reason I’m holding back.

    However, I’ve seen the smoked version on Jin’s car and thought they were amazing lol. The smoked lights mask the red color difference. But... nothing on my car is smoked/tinted except my windows and fog lights. I’ll end up smoking every light if I start :ROFLMAO:

    Decisions decisions

    Mostly done with all the mods I've wanted to do at this point, just a few more on the horizon but in no rush...

    Got the little Carista dongle and tweaked a few things - single reverse beep, unlock all with one touch (driver's door SKS, unlock button, etc), no passenger seatbelt ding (even my iPhone would set it off, hahaha)
    Had to re-Plastidip my front and rear Toyota emblems; they were the first pieces i ever dipped and I didn't lay it on thick enough, so I started to notice some chrome peeking thru on the edges. They look nice now!
    Backup camera and dash camera both installed and hardwired last weekend (can't remember if I mentioned that or not).
    Put on a shark fin antenna. It looks decent. Reception is fine. It was a cheap one off of eBay, and if you look closely there's a VERY slight gap between the roof and base of antenna. From a few feet away it's not noticeable, but when you get close you can see it...kinda annoying, but not enough for me to replace it at this point.

    Planning to dip the stock wheels tonight. Mine has the black wheels, but the paint on them is a little chipped here and there, so I thought it'd look better just to make them more uniform.

    Other than that....gonna get some custom floor liners soon (not sure if Weathertech or Husky...) but figure I won't really need them for a few more weeks at least until the weather starts to dip. I'd like to do a headunit swap at some point - want something with CarPlay - but I'm not sure how much it'll take to get it to integrate with steering wheel controls, the backup cam i just put in, stock microphone, etc...
    I'd also like to pop in some smoked tails and lowering springs at least...but going to have to have some work convincing the wife to let me do those. Hahaha.

    I have always liked the look of cars without the front license plate. Unfortunately, our local traffic enforcement community does not. Gave up doing this on my last car. Constantly pulled over for it. Don't need the extra "exposure" to men in control. Glad you did what you did, looks awesome!

    Hell, the prius pulls in enough road noise on its own!
