    I replaced the flasher relay. I had previously swapped out the factory one with one that prevents hyper-flashing with the LEDs in place, but was never really happy with the long first flash when either the turn signals or hazard lights were engaged. The new unit works much better, with the first flash only slightly longer than the rest of the flash sequence.

    I am spending some time today and perhaps tomorrow to finish the install of the wiring for my custom LED mirrors. I know where I need to tap into the power for the puddle lights, but figuring out how to route the wiring from the foot well up to the rear dome light might be a challenge. I will post pics to this thread when I am finished:

    Do you have the satin chrome or shiny chrome door trim? Whatever it is, it looks good on the Blizzard Pearl.

    Patience, Grasshopper. And congrats on the new purchase. (y)

    Your pic doesn't look like a Prius v as you have listed in your profile. Is the one in the pic a second vehicle? :confused:

    I might need to tweak the beam height a bit, they seem to be riding a bit high.

    Depending on where you get your HID kit from you can do it for well under $100.
    I reused some stuff from my old car.

    I've used HID kits from DDM for years and they're generally pretty inexpensive.

    close to $1000. but could be less if you get some parts used like the signal/DRL lights and the bumper.

    Thanks again Sean for the install yesterday. Super professional, genuinely nice, and just overall great guy. I highly recommend him if you live or around the LA area.

    Driving around tonight I was proud and super excited using the signal lights. I especially love the fact the white LEDs stays illuminated when driving and how the alternative white LEDs illuminate the floor when unlocking the car.

    Second best upgrade to date, after the interior LEDs!

    Great job my friend and can't wait for more upgrades!!!

    I really like the style of your bumper plugs. It looks really clean. Is this from the dealer? Thanks in advance. =]

    yes it's from the dealer. Those are headlamp washer covers. I modified them and used them to cover the holes.
