    Hi Everyone,

    I just finished putting on the new rims and washed the car. It is amazing how shinning Zaino after I waxed it 4 months ago. The wood dash was installed earlier last week. I also added a few touchs with chrome to the front doors and the hatch door edges. Overall, I am satisfy with everything.

    Really good looking mods !!! Can't wait for a mileage report on your first tank of gas after the new rims. I am very close to doing the same to my ride, (how do you think they will look on a Silver Pri), Just too many conflicking reports as to the mileage drop. And the wook dash is just right, not to much not to little. Love the door armrests.........

    Thanks. I got the center armrest from e-bay for $34.50. Search for Prius hood or here is a link.

    That's Prius Hood's leather armrest cover. You can get it off ebay (I don't think it's available through PC).


    Hmm, I like the 6th pic. It makes the Prius look business-like.

    I am glad you like it and share the same taste as me. :D If you want to know how it will look on silver, try www.tirerack.com. You can see a preview pic with various rims they carry. I think the black rim with chrome lips will look as good on silver. I sure will report the first tank mpg.

    I got the Sherwood Dash kit for $147 and I feel this is probably the best bang for the buck mod. I still have 8 pieces left to install. I am not sure if I will though.

    Yea, I was joking with my friend that I drive Lexus Prius. :lol: I studied Lexus interior before ordering the woodtrim color. It came out really good.

    You've studied well lol.

    Are the armrest "grey"? I might get a set if my cloth one ever wears out (out of warranty of course, otherwise I'll get them to replace it for me)

    Looks awesome, man. That is one shiny car. The rims go well with the color of the car. Half inch or an inch lowering would be a good final touch to the whole exterior look as there is a decent amount of gap.

    The armrest is black leather which I also bought from Prius Hood. I custom install it to have "OEM" look, rather than the velcro solution. Check out this post.

    I got a used set of rims and tires which are only one month old. The orange line at the center of tire threads are still there. The tires are Nexen N3000 205/40R17 -- it is not the right size. There is 4.1% Odometer difference between the stock tire. I am thinking about returning it to the guy I bought it from (NJ) but I really like the low profile tire look though.

    If anyone wants them, let me know. I'll sell it back for a very good price I paid, $675 for all 4 rims and tries -- local pickup only plz.

    Hey, nice rims. Glad to know I am not the only one with new rims...and the mileage, it will drop a bit, but it's worth it, since I have better rubber meeting the road now.

    I also like the dash. Where did you get that?

    I got it from Autoanything.com. They have 1 year price guarantee and they have the best price I could find. I got $15 off and free shipping and they now have better deal with 10% off and free shipping. BTW, I ordered Birds eye color.

    Link for the lazy.

    I got it thank you Dennis, I must say that is a fine looking car! Im not to keen on black but yours looks bad a$$.. outside has a stealthy bling to it, inside looks like a high end lexus with the wood trim.....

    Im also in awe I never would have thought the inside would look so good with the wood trim....... ;)

    Was it hard to install?
