    Wind noise is bad on freeway, maybe I need to adjust the fairing. MPG has not effect yet.

    Why not tap into the amp power under the passenger seat?

    Those are nice, where'd you get those at? I have been keeping my eyes open at my local Fry's but I havent seen anything that's enticing.

    Noisy fairing means something and I'm sure it's dragging some wind.

    Mission completed. I ended up taping the power wire to the GREEN cigarette lighter wire and for the ground there is plenty once you remove the armrest. Overall, picture quality is pretty good for the price. However, the sound quality is not so good, but I will connected to the mini jack audio inside the armrest this weekend.

    Is it the sound through the wireless headphones or the internal speakers?

    I used these: 1pc T10 194 168 2825 Car SMD LED White Super Bright Car Lights Lamp Bulb | eBay

    Same bulbs for the license plate lights too, as well as a handful of interior lights.
    The swap on the parking lights took about 5 minutes. The passenger side was a little trickier, just because the intake blocks access a bit. If you have small hands, it would be a bit easier.

    I'm planning on using the same bulbs for the front map lights, vanity lights and courtesy lights on the door panels.

    Nope, it fits quite well, in fact. I'll try to grab a pic of the bulb in place in the morning.

    Here is my weekend mod:

    1. Universal Fender Molding Kit (polyurathane), painted and installed. They have three types, thin, medium, and thick. I chose 15mm. Nice suttle touch. Clean.
    2. Rear Wing Lip (polyurathane) painted and installed.

    If you like the parts you can contact Masaya and tell him Bobby and Rodney sent you. I wish I had my rims already to help complete my build. Contact info:

    I really like the rear spoiler lip! How much is it and is it the same finish as the standard non painted rear spoiler?

    What Up, Big Pete from the UK, MSRP is $219.00. Contact Masaya ASAP, these will be a big hit! Very Clean and adds "just enough" to the rear wing! Comes black, you will have to paint it if you wish. If you are in SO Cal area, ask for Grigor at Imperial Body Shop in La Harbra. He knows all our prius parts, thanks to Rodney, and now me.

    Thanks for the info! Is it black like the original stock spoiler finish or is it black primed for paint?

    It's a rather expensive piece though for what it is, but does look cool!
