Got my spacers installed They ended up being LTBMW 12.5mm spacers instead of 12mm BMS spacers. Not sure what happened there but I'm fine with it. It really evened things out. The wheels were over 1/2" farther into the car in the rear. I'm happy nao

Plus I got a call asking if I was interested in work today. Working at 3 20 acres in the mountains, twisty mountain road to get there, chainsaws...yes please

Where the pics?


You should take a pic of your car next to a felled tree. Then send it to your Prius-driving friends.
