    There is a car scene in Japan that’s not popular in the US yet. They stretch tires and pull the rear sides out and even camber in the tires.

    It’s a 18x9 jnc rim with 215 40 15 running in 1.5 inch wheel spacer. I’m saving up to get better rims so hopefully I can get rid of the spacer

    After almost 2 years, I had to replace the “Wish app” LED license plate lights. They were like $3 or $4 shipped and made it 5 weeks shy of two years. It was one of the first mods I did to my car. The replacement pair was $13 shipped from a US supplier. This is the result. I forgot the trunk trim and inner panel had to come off. Then I remembered that the first time I took it off, the little plastic handles at each corner are broken away from the liner. I’ll come up with a permanent fix for that when it’s not 30 degrees outside.

    Oil/filter change and OCC drain.

    Pria made me an Espriusso, with complementary 'heart' design on top. I think she loves what I do for her... 20200208_182307.jpg

    It’s been a minute. Headed to Hybrid Pit for an EGR service, OCC install, oil change/rotate, engine filter. Car is at 136k miles. I can’t believe the difference in how it drove on the way home. Thanks to the homies down there for always hooking it up at the best shop in SoCal. Been trying to stay off the forum so I don’t buy shit. Lol 01EFB445-CBAA-4679-A390-1CDF9A83775E.jpeg

    Nope, but, I am saving a little less than what a dealer would charge to help cover their labor, overhead, etc. These guys know their stuff. Have met them personally and seen the work they do. Cool thing is, they install and service everything Prius. Some people are worth paying for and I think these guys are. I would go as far as to say you get the job done by them and they won't "forget" you once you leave.

    Forgot to add that their shop is a full shop with all the bells and whistles and tools, allowing them to do the job quickly and correctly. You should see the shop!!

    Always curious as a lot of folks have it done there;).

    I know my labor rate is too far low:cool:.

    But always good to compare if I could find out(y).

    Meh, they're the local team;).

    I'm a Pittsburgh fan:).

    But a lot of my staff were rooting hard for them, so hard to not get excited (y).

    Yeah, stock camber. I don’t really know how to mess with camber shins yet but if I find a wider rim I may go that route
