Total cost of the parts for the 2012 Prius, including a courtesy tip for my buddy: a little over US$900. For the Prius C, we’re picking up a set of JDM Toyota door visors for a price of US$120 (part #: 08611-52300) and a set of JDM Toyota deluxe half-seat covers, US$85 (part #: 08220-52A3). I probably won’t see the parts in another three weeks until my buddy returns.

Just in time to take our one week road trip next week! DIY guides for applicable parts will be available some time after.

Down the line, I’ll be blacking out the head lights and installing a set of Retro-Quik projector retrofit upgrades by the Retrofit Source at the same time. The complete plug-n-play kit costs US$300 and consists of projectors, mounting brackets and a premium HID kit. Probably won’t start the project until mid-fall since the day light still stretches into late 8PM early 9PM these days and use of my headlights are unnecessary.
