    I can't imagine lowering my Prius: I have a hard enough job reaching the touch pad and even the top row of the number pad at the drive-through ATM as it is.

    I'm a newbie here.....I just picked up a 2010 Prius a couple of weeks ago - the seats are killer on my back. I'm looking at getting seats like this, too. Did you ever post the solution to the wiring?

    Gave new life to my old scratched up hubcaps.
    I used a spray can of rubber coating from lowes.

    Starting to go crazy with this can rubberized coating.
    I think I will do the rest of the badges also, it looks good. 20211112_140932.jpeg

    Installed wheels+tires, mudflaps, lowered on TRD springs, installed rear sway bar, added ceramic tint. Window visors are next, then I’ll be done.

    Picked up a set of Corolla wheels yesterday. I'm waiting for my TRD springs and rear spacers to come in this week. IMG_20211114_112606.jpg

    Friend of mine started doing wraps and tinted windows (still a beginner), so I had him do my tail lights to get rid of the IN YOUR FACE chrome look. He'll have to redo them since he messed up his cut, but I'm pretty happy with the look.

    Just got an old 3rd gen and I’ve been waiting for things to come in. I just installed this cheap android unit so i can have Apple CarPlay. It’s the second one I installed because the first didn’t have wireless CarPlay. It’s a decent unit. I also plasti dipped the wheels for now.

    I did order a bunch of stuff like an extra egr cooler so I can have one ready to replace when I clean it all out. I got new struts, top hats and tanabe springs. I have a cat defender and wheel spacers coming as well. I’ve been looking at a dashcam and a mini vci for techstream too. Man, it’s suppose to be my daily. I can never leave well enough alone.

    What year is it, and how many miles are on the odometer? Hopefully, not too much beyond 150k, since you'll be doing its first egr cooler and intake manifold cleaning.

    Yeah it's this one. I will say that the mounting to the dash kit is DIY. The screen is huge so you do need to play around with it. I used a metra dash kit and this head unit is slightly smaller maybe (3-5mm) so I needed to use some things around the house to keep nice and sung.

    This is has a little bit more, like 240k and 2010 lol. I had looked around for a while. I had a few stipulations. I needed to stay under 8K since I'm trying to buy a house next year and can't finance anything at this time. I looked at a ton in that range but I was worried about the traction battery and most I found had close to 200k miles. I ended up finding this one and talked him down to 6k. It had a motor swap a year ago and interior is clean. It came with a 2" hitch, Thule bike rack and was white. Plus it was 10 miles from my home. Most were 50-60mile away. I figured I could replace the battery and still come in under 8k. We'll see, but I'm pretty good with most anything DIY.

    TRD Springs installed with Corolla wheels + 5mm rear spacers. I wish it were a tad bit lower in the front, but I'm happy it doesn't scrape over speed bumps. I'm going to VHT my rear tail lights red hopefully over the weekend. IMG_20211126_064444__01.jpg IMG_20211125_100730__01.jpg IMG_20211125_101142__01.jpg

    Wow. I didn't realize these cars were holding there value.. last I looked my trade in value for my 2010 w/ 210k miles was around $1,200. Granted I bought it 6 years ago for under [email protected] 90kmiles.

    Carvana quoted my 2013 with 72k for $18,300. I’m super tempted but it will be hard to find an affordable replacement
