Hmm...that rain deflector looks promising but I've never installed anything on my car myself before except for windshield wipers :laugh:

Though I see that it adheres just by using some 3M adhesive. Though I might screw it up by attaching it on the wrong area :laugh:

Ya, the rain deflectors are something I greatly enjoy. A big advantage is in the summer you can leave your windows cracked for some ventilation and passers by will be none the wiser.

Have you by any chance been able to find lowering springs and plan to get them? With there being a Toyota version currently sold overseas I can only imagine at least one spring setup out there by now. Unless you're interested in getting coilovers?

Hmm, now that you've brought up the air intake I find myself on the fence about it too. On the one hand, it is supposed to improve fuel economy and you just need to clean out the filter once in a while but it's not really a necessity.

Ya, for some cars it is a big improvement, others not so much. I'll get the better drop-in filter and remove the curve at the bottom of the stock intake for now.
