    For the front, there will be poke on stock suspension or with no camber adjustment. The rear should sit flush with fenders. I have camber adjustment on front coils.

    Swapped headlights and dome lights from LED back halogen. Got frustrated when some cheap LED lights failed on me and the headlights were just soooo dim.

    Changed to Wagner for the headlights. Though cheap the performance is much better. The interior lights are dim but good enough for me.

    Installed electric cabin heater. Defa Termini mini II 1900W. Really like their products. Have same model installed to 3 of my cars and this time it was more than easy because car had schuko outlet already installed.

    There is winter acoming

    Well gentlemen, I done goofed.

    Lately I've been getting the smell of oil in the cabin, decided to check my oil level and I'm down a quart. I start getting annoyed thinking at 124K I developed an oil leak. I changed the oil 1,300 mi ago.

    Well I was installing some grill blocking today and decided to check under the car and the oil access panel is SOAKED.

    Jack up the car, support it, crawl under and there's oil all over the filter housing. I spray it down with degreaser wipe it clean and put the car in maintenance mode. Low and behold 5 minutes in the oil filter housing develops a slow drip from the center.

    My best guess? When I was changing the oil my Toyota filter wrench got stuck. I wacked it with my socket to remove it but must've hit just hard enough to cause a hairline fracture. New one is on the way from evilbay.

    At least you caught it at home, and not out on the road!
    Mine get's stuck everytime. After I've snugged up the housing, I turned it
    counter-clockwise a little to break it free. It's still a little tight, but tapping it with
    the wrench usually releases it.
    Did you order the aluminum one or plastic?

    Really wanted aluminum but ended up with a plastic one. Called the local dealership and they said they could have one on the truck and here tomorrow for $68USD. Dang near fainted at that one.

    Look in item description, there's a list, including Prius, Prius v, CT200h, Corolla, etc.

    You should write to the seller and ask if it WILL fit the Prius.
    If he says yes, and it doesn't, he gets to pay the return postage and give you a refund.
    If it doesn't fit, you're good to go!

    The eBay "will it fit" guide is well known for saying it doesn't fit or isn't compatible when it is.

    I got one for $10USD. Also that one you linked has a center bolt which is similar to the RAV4 hybrid but my current cap has no bolt so I chose a model that didn't have one either.

    Here's the one I bought

    Been meaning to ask you, how'd the prolong charger thing turn out? Recently ran Dr Prius and I'm at 51% capacity. Wondering if prolong is worth the investment or just start saving for a new battery.

    Put that money towards the spin on filter conversion. You will thank yourself every 5000 miles!

    It was well worth it for me. The battery is functioning like it was when I bought the car
    4 years ago. Mine had just started to show signs of problems. Just minor though, so I think
    I got it just in time. If I had the money last year I would have done it last year.

    The only problem I had was with the harness. Apparently somoething went wrong with it after the
    cycles finished. They sent one out quickly and it arrived in less than a week.

    Next time I run it through it's complete cycle again I hope everything will run correctly. But if I get the same
    error, I'll just bypass the harness and plug the fan as normal.
