    I wonder why Toyota does not sell a front grill cover for the winter?

    Installed a cargo net in our new pre-owned 2010 Prius. Not terribly fancy or exciting but after our first trip to the grocery store we quickly realized it's an absolute necessity!

    SCH-I535 ?

    Hi and thanks - I like it too :)
    I asked one guy in the neighborhood for the installation. It was my mistake as the installation itself is not too difficult for average DIY. And the guy made some short circuit which ended in the Toyota service due to non-working A/C :mad:

    I installed my UltraRacing "room bar" frame brace.

    I've had the UltraRacing rear strut brace in for a while. Yesterday I modified the cowling covers so they'll accommodate the bar mounts.

    Probably because a predictable proportion of the users will leave it on when warm weather comes and overheat something.

    I usually don't cover the front bumper on the winter. Especially now the prices of gasoline dropped almost half the price.

    My Cusco strut bar came back from the powder coating shop. I got a gloss white finish to match the TRD sway bar and the UltraRacing braces.

    Here are some detail shots of the install midway through.

    And the finished product.

    It fits like a dream.

    I got my new Chinese stereo installed.

    This features an 8" screen with navigation, and support for more media sources than I will ever need.

    My favorite feature is the support for non-English character set. My wife & I listen to a lot of JPop and it's a drag when all the artist names and titles are just *****.

    I took a gamble that the advertised 2009-2013 support would work in my 2014. I had to modify one of the cables a bit for the steering wheel controls and reverse signal wire. I also needed to buy a special adapter for the AX-TOYUSB plug.

    Installing the GPS antenna was a drag because removing the entire dash panel is pretty inconvenient. I ended up compromising and mounting it above the glove compartment instead of perched on top of the center air conditioning ducts, as was suggested by the installation instructions. It works perfectly well there.

    Thanks for posting the picture. How does the Ultra room bar affect your rear legroom?

    Definitely in the way but I don't think it's enough to provide discomfort. My son taps on it with his feet like a drum.:D

    Rear passengers ask what it is. But they've never complained.

    Replaced all the door speakers, replaced all of the tungsten lights from the interior, license plate and from the side markers.

    I like those leather seats you have. Are those covers or full seats?

    These are upgraded leather seats the dealer decided to install to jack up the price.

    Luckily they screwed up the invoice during the price negotiations, in my favor and I ended up getting the leather seats for free.(y)
