Default 2001 Toyota Prius accessories

I just bought a used 2001 Toyota Prius and am very excited about driving it. I want to get rain deflectors for the side windows, but can't find anyone who sells them for this model. Any help? Should I try and get them for a Japan exporter?
What other nice accessories should I consider?

Thanks for any help.

Just an observation, but in all these years, I have never seen a classic Prius with rain deflectors on the side windows. I would be surprised if you are able to find any, as the production was so small on the early models. The volume didn't pick up until around late 2002 or 2003, with most of the relatively big production numbers in the 2004 models and later (second generation).

As far as other accessories, very few were available. I suspect that most first generation Prius's were left as stock. They were so unique in the early days, that you didn't have to add anything to them to get noticed. In fact, just about anything you did to them, like just changing the wheels and tires, severely impacted the fuel mileage; so everyone left them alone.

Good luck in your pursuit...

Looking at WeatherTech's website, the earliest they have window deflectors for is the 2004 model year.
