    Gone? Did you grind it right off? What's holding your rear bumper on?

    Oh ok. Thanks for the heads up. I was gonna try to leave the screws in place, but may end up grinding the whole thing off so I won't have any issues with going lower.

    Swapped rides with @The Critic for a week :).

    He rolls on 17s, and you can feel the ride a bit more than the 15s. Mpg’s a bit worse but not terrible:

    Figured I’d check out the 17s on a similar vehicle before swapping to a Prime(y).

    Added a rear fog light strip today, the toyota dealership doing the PVC (periodic vehicle control) didnt like that my Prius didnt have any rear fog light even tho its not mandatory in Norway....... So i had to put one on, luckily i found a rear fog light strip thats E-certified as rear fog light. And connected it to what would give power to the original rear fog light in the original taillight, so the original rear fog light switch on the stalk turns it on and off. (really easy, i just put a scotch lock on the wire on the tailight connector, so it now steals power to the strip instead)
    light i used: 1x REAR RED FOG LED LAMP MULTIVOLT LIGHT E-MARKED 12V/24V TRUCK CAR VAN BUS CAB | eBay

    Hi TK,

    I just have to know. Your ride is bad nice person! What kind of looks do you get from the Subaru, Mitsibishi, Honda fast and furious cars that you encounter? Do they "thumbs up"? Do people overall really dig your car? I think a mod Prius is just so damn cool! I just have to know how you are treated.

    The reaction is usually positive. I get daily thumbs up and photos and videos taken from cars people and non car people. It's pretty fun

    I am very happy to hear that! A modded car, no matter what it is, is always cool in my book. But your Prius has to make people think, "wow, and to think its a Prius"

    Funny thing is, slitghly modify ur Prius and Prius-haters can’t even recognize it as a Prius... so ya, most people most likely believe TK’s Prius is a Lexus based on the front bumper. Same as people mistakingly think mine is a Lexus aswell since it says Lexus on it. Usually the question I get is “what is the difference of that and a normal Prius except it’s price tag?”.

    I haven't done any exterior mods except to keep it clean and shiney. People always look at it. And then when they see it is a Prius, then I get a second look from them. Sometimes its a good look, sometimes its "oh, its just a Prius". LoL.
