I had the dealer pre-ding my car, so I didn't have to stress about parking in the grocery store lot.

I recommend a pair of fuzzy dice to hang from the rear view mirror. That's about all that's missing from the Prius.

Now why didn't I think of that?

Funny you should say that... I've had a white pair of dice hanging from my Prius since day one...

And I'll bet you're very happy. See, the fuzzy dice are the only option needed for the Prius!

The Prius is such a technogeek car that you can't use just any fuzzy dice... you need 20 sided fuzzy dice.

Accessories that I did, in order of usefulness (to me anyway):

1. BT Brace for better handling, though some might debate its value, it works for me.

2. Sharkfin Antenna - Looks way cool, and eases the car cover that I use.

3. Scangage - Cool real time instrumentation and fuel/trip computer.

4. Rubber protective pad for rear bumper.

5. Cargo net for rear hatch opening.

6. PRIUS vinyl decal for body side - sets yours apart from thousands of others, except mine.

06 White pkg #6, Sharkfin antenna, NO trim rings, BT brace, Scangauge II.

Default Window Tint

Just got my prius last month, and I am bracing for the hot summer, especially because I am in Cali where it can get hard to drive without sunglasses sometimes.

Looking at getting window tint as my first accessory, and it seems like shops here are quoting me $300 for a tint job with high performance window film, and $200 for 2 year warranty film.

I found this site called SnapTint that sells window tint for the prius for only $74.95. They say they use the high performance film that professionals use, and they cut the tint into the size and shape of the Prius windows.

I just ordered it, and will let you guys know how it goes when I install. Hopefully this doesn't turn into a disaster.

Hand made, embroidered, perfect fit, etc. Maybe Toyota's fixed the fabric issues in the newer ones, but in 2005, the console cover was important.

My first and only purchase was a set of front seat covers (comes with console cover too). I guess I better consider the bumper protector.

Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
