    As long as you're sure you weren't the target of the tracker (or your wife)? But dude, that wiring, it looks Mickey Mouse.

    Common with used dealers that sells vehicles to people with bad credit, when they don't pay, they know where to find the car for the repo. Found two at work so far, one was a used car that our dealer bought and the other one was a customer's car.

    What is the theory behind the magnet? Did it prove what you were expecting?

    For the headlamps:

    It's been 5 months and mine are just starting to fade some.
    Soon I will polish them again and this time spray the Meguiar's Headlight Coating on them.
    I wanted to see how long it lasted without putting that on first. I'm pretty happy for 5 months for 15 minutes of work!

    Last week was a scheduled visit to Hybridpit in Buena Park CA. At only 63,000 miles, I had them do a lot so the dealer won't have the opportunity!! Got the transmission flushed, Coolant flushed, new spark plugs (the old ones are now obsolete and the new ones burn hotter), Tom's Super Ram II air filter, OCC installed (the one with the dip stick), intake manifold cleaned, throttle body cleaned, fuel injectors cleaned, new gasket and of course, new EGR.

    Car runs like new now! MPG back up to 46-48 city. Guys did a bang up job. Please remember, I have saved up money for this, so it did run high, but I am set for at least 150k miles of engine free worries. I still have in my reserves money for replacement of the HV battery. Waiting for the new types that are lighter to get on the market.

    Please contact Hybridpit for pricing. I'm just respecting their business and jobs do differ depending on condition of your Prius. Attached some photos!

    I'd say the egr circuit will need something a bit sooner than that;).

    But glad it is sorted for now (y).

    looks like he bought a new egr, which should at least last for 90.000 miles (if it needs cleaning in the meantime, that's a different question....)

    Installed Firestone Coil-Rite air helper springs for when the Prius is in camper mode and loaded up. Easy install. Shown before any inflation. Purchased from etrailer.

    Now that the redwoods have decided to stop dropping enough yellow pollen to cover my Prius daily, my Prius spent the day at the car spa getting a mani/pedi/facial. :whistle:

    It's a JDM Eyebrow Garnish and I got them 5-6 years ago. It was either through Buyee, Yahoo Auctions or when my friend travelled around Asia and sent them, I can't remember. o_O

    It looks like it blocks the front parking/running lights though. Might also retain enough heat to cause damage to the clear headlight covers as well. Our 2011 has some discoloration on the inner surface on the driver's side already, and it's not covered like that.

    IMO, if you put something like that on the headlights, remove or disable the lights under them, since they are blocked anyway.
