Yeah, I'm definitely not sinking $375 into wheel skirts. As pretty as they are, there is no way that would ever be worth it. The wheel covers are a definite possibility. But, I'm still thinking about mods and prioritizing what will be done first. I'll probably focus on aeromods since thats kind of where the Prius lacks a bit, and I do do a lot of highway driving. But, I also want to get some additional instrumentation too. Of course everyone at the EV build wants me to go PHEV which would be awesome, but 20 batteries = $$$. If anyone has any other suggestions feel free. I know a bit about the Prius, but not a ton.

Haha, don't be disappointed when that doesn't happen.

Well, the Prius is really more of the wife's car. She had the Matrix and this is replacing it. The Paseo is mine. I might do a cool split avatar like Darin though.
