    Installed Injen open intake for the C over the wknd and it has to be one of the best mods!
    the best mod for power performance, maybe the only mod for it.
    Noticeable increase in mid-range response and power. It feels like a engine bottle neck has been taken off!

    Now, the C climbs the speed easily and there is a lot more confidence in acceleration.
    Best mod for the engine! Not bad for $200 spent...

    And, I thought it would be a novelty upgrade but.... it far surpassed my expectations!!!
    Give it a try!

    $150 all around except for the front. And yeah, I wish I could get the front but I live in CA.

    Also, sadly, these things didnt even last a thing before some donkey vandalized my car while it was parked in downtown SF. I came back to it like this..

    Looks like it's just your mirror that's damaged, the housing should still be good (signal still works and still able to adjust it?) and it's a Prius C3 or below judging from the hubcap (so no heated mirror). So it should only be about $15 or so for a replacement mirror from ebay/amazon.

    Also the aftermarket side mirror I got from ebay a while back (I broke mine putting in LED turn arrows) is a little wee wee bit smaller than the OEM mirror; however, they do come with 4 double sided sticky pads, and compared to OEM are not noticeably any different. And I also like the fact that the aftermarket mirror is not as opaque as the OEM, so my LED turn arrow actually shows through nicely in daytime compared to the OEM mirror where it'd would be very hard to even see the LED turn arrow in daylight. It also survived a 2.2k mile road trip (so there shouldn't be any worry of it falling off)

    Good luck

    The covers/cap are painted and come off, so I would look for a used one on eBay and buy it and change out the painted cap to match. Mirror and housing should be around seventy bucks. Looks like someone on a bike hit your mirror. I tend to fold my driver mirror in, when parked on a busy streets.

    Oh wow, I didnt think it was that cheap! I'm definitely going to look one up on ebay then. And unfortunately, I wish I had some sort of explanation for the damage. But the drivers side was actual the side up against the side walk. Haha, its all good though, karma will come back around for the donkey who did it. But anyways, thank you guys for your suggestions on where to get it fixed without having my pockets burned by it!

    Just ordered a small 9in x 5in white American flag sticker for my car. Hoping to recreate this look with it.

    Will post results once it arrives.

    Went camping using our new cargo platform and just received our new license plates. Our other tag is 50 MPG for our Jetta diesel wagon.

    Got my sticker. Really happy with the results. I couldn't manage to get a few tiny tiny bubbles out, but I'm the only one who can see them, so no worries. I'm really happy with the result!

    Nice. Is it lowered, if so on what set up? What size wheels and tires? What wheels are those?

    Not lowered, but I want too.
    They are velox wheels, 17x7 et 42. 215 45 17. They slightly rub on full turn think a spacer will do the trick. Wheels are 15-16 lbs

    Thank you. NICE! I had a similar set up on a couple Scion xAs I had, curious if it kills your gas mileage. Looks good, very good.

    I'm looking at rims/tires but I want to be conscious of big roll resistance increases and unsprung weight increases.

    Enjoy.

    Legoadan. Good for you. I put a Patriots sticker upper right of mine. Same thing, a couple small bubbles I didn't see until too late to fix. Grrrrr. But I bet I'm the only one that sees them.

    So far getting a few mpg lower I'm thinking of upping the tire pressure, I drive mixed highway and street
