Did you remove the dealer frame around the rear plate? I remove all the dealer stuff as soon as I get home, they're not paying me for advertising.
I removed the two that came with it but added a stillen one for the rear I got with my mustang's brake kit lol
Yeah I just like to take care of my cars so when I see something that needs to be done for maintenance the OCD kicks in and I just have too. Plus I figure the thought of a million mile prius would be cool. It revs like a diesel and I drive it easy so it has a chance if i take good care of it . A guy in memphis just traded his million mile prius back into Wolfchase toyota. Still runs and they relisted it on Makes me wonder if he got anything for it??
Next thing I will probably do will be the revenol 0w16or honda ultfull and ATF fluid (since i doubt its been changed @95k miles *worried face*
