    Soon as I find the link I'll send u asap

    It's a different tip from what was posted on eBay. It was a gift from my friend in Japan. It was the popular brand put on our car there. If I remember was like $25-$35 or so something like that

    image.jpg Had this made. It's not the final but it's still nice. Will go on my car asap.

    mine are 15 x 7. The stock tires fit perfect. Because the rims are wider, even on the stock tires, the car handles so much better. The mileage hasn't suffered either.

    Nice. It's funny how a set of wheels completely changes the look of our little cars. Since I've put my new wheels on I've caught many people checking it out.

    Anyways, I love the look and I'm happy with the weight savings. Btw I also installed some nice blue nuts to match the car color.

    I also got a really good deal on the wheels ($78 each shipped) and tires ($67 each shipped) so I couldn't be happier.

    Bought a set of front and rear Husky liners in gray.
    Again got a great deal $78+ tax on Amazon for the whole set.
    Next day they were like $140. Wth ?

    Sometimes have to catch it before they correct their error

    So you think it was an error with their pricing? I guess that makes sense. Maybe they thought they were selling just the front set?
    Oh well, I win

    I've not added anything new to my new/used 2012 Prius C, apart from a rubber liner/mat at the back the day I picked up the car. However had something nice (and unexpected) happen.

    I was a little bit irked that after buying the car a couple of weeks ago I found it had some nasty scratches on the bonnet. (It also had a botched job of a repair on the rear bumper.) In regard to the scratches, I figured what the heck, it can't hurt to ask. So I phoned the used car salesman at the dealers and asked could he get the scratches fixed. He was okay with it, and told me to talk to the service people when I brought it in for the next service.

    I decided not to wait for the next service, and arranged then and there to get it done the next time I was in town. Thing is, I only asked for and expected the scratches on the bonnet to be fixed. The damage at the rear looked to me as if it would need a new bumper and I figured that would be too much to expect.

    The nice thing was that when I picked up the car today I found that not only did the dealer arrange to get the scratches fixed, they fixed the bumper as well, and touched up a few little other nicks here and there. No charge for any of it.

    Always nice when people do something they don't have to, and go the extra mile. I'm loving my car :)

    Nice to see a dealer step up like that.

    Too bad... I added a scratch to my tailgate whilst installing my backup camera. Looks like there was one scratch from dooring something on the driver's side. I don't think I've managed to let the door open enough to whack anything.

    It's crazy but yes, I agree, I catch people looking too. Almost saying, "what the heck kind of car is that?" Or, "Okay, the C doesn't look that bad. What's different about that C where it actually looks decent!?!?"

    Good deal on the rims!

    Do you have a link to those? Also, how easy/hard were they to install?

    Here is the link got them from Amazon. They were very easy to install the lights are attached with 3m automotive tape and then I connected the positive wire to a fuse under the hood that has power when the car is on and grounded the negative wire to a bolt under the hood. The whole install took about 30 mins

    Hmm my biggest concern for those is how cheap they are. I mean LEDs aren't expensive but idk I am weird. I really want these:


    especially because they have auto-dimming when you turn on your headlights.

    For what it's worth, I bought those cheap LEDs in bulk with diff colors via eBay for ~$7 a pair. They're built pretty solidly with metal backing and they light up pretty well. I used them as footwell lighting, and hooked up a PWM to be able to dim them at will.
    Just in case: PWM=Pulse width modulator. A device that turns on and off a thing rapidly to emulate constant brightness or dimness.
