    Hello awesome Prius!
    I have the same scars on front bumper from previous owner, where could I find the parts you put on yours?

    Thanks partner, I purchased the “Prius Plus Ground Effects Kit”

    Installed myself via DIY: How to install Prius PLUS Ground Effects kit by TRD - Balancing Act

    Been so busy lately, but I finally washed my Prius. Interior tomorrow, I literally have to break it up into 2 days now :ROFLMAO:

    Oooh yeah my custom plates came in at the DMV. Wooo excited to get those. What kind of license plate frames are you guys using? I need something lol. Thx

    My 12 volt battery was going downhill fast, so I installed an Optima yellow-top today.

    Not a sexy mod, but having a car that starts on demand is pretty nice.

    SM-G900V ?

    Where did you get your Optima from? My ‘12 OEM 12V has been randomly giving me trouble. Best price I found was around $230 but I’ve read older threads where some have paid around $150.

    $220 shipped from eLearnAid

    Hybrid parts

    Funny experience. I ordered the battery on a Sunday night. Get a phone call Wednesday from Bernard at eLearnAid apologizing for not shipping the battery sooner. Then he asks me if I still want it. Uh, ya, I still want it.

    Battery showed up well packaged and I'm happy.

    I checked Amazon and didn't see any options close to the price you paid.

    Don't I wish.

    Cusco braces installed.
    Front power brace 951 492 F
    Lower arm bar 942 475 A
    Center brace (power chassis) 951 492 C
    Rear end chassis brace 952 492 REN

    Driving on freeway with these braces have drastically improve the stability of the car. Cornering is so much fun. Overall handling is just great! Made me wish I did it sooner. Thank you @RightOnTime and hybrid pit for the install and great service!

    I've only done a few small things.. Rear wiper delete, front bug deflector, moved the license plate off the front bumper down to the black grill piece, which looks way cleaner IMO. I thought I'd be able to live with the drop in the HR springs but now I am regretting it and should have gone with coils... Since I dont ball hard like you boys down in SoCal LMAO :ROFLMAO: I can't afford air ride---yet....

    Also, HybridPits' site redesign is waaaay better. Good job guys!

    Actually up a bit from the 50mpg displayed on 5w-30(y).

    0w-40 YOU MADMAN! The manual says 0w-20 you're going to kill us all! /s

    I had the same experience when I swapped over. Definitely not going back. Did you notice the engine got quieter? Mine definitely makes less noise now.
