    The Prius my workmate bought off me, is getting Tein adjustable suspension, and some sort of JDM 16" alloys fitted to it

    Prius looks remarkably good.

    In somewhat unrelated news, I'm currently negotiating to own a Leaf, since with a girlfriend who lives 60-80km round trip away (depending on traffic and route), I'm doing around 500km (300 miles) a week in the 86. Which is getting up there in fuel bill, and depreciation hit.

    It's a well spec'd 2013, weirdly, on OZ 17" alloys, and the same size tyres as the 86.

    I own the Leaf, and have done 1100km in it over the last two weeks. Appears it will do the job well, so long as I plan charging / use according to days plan.

    Personalised plate is of my devising, and amuses me no end.

    First month of driving Leaf as a daily has been and gone.

    Over 2,000km, based on initial numbers of electricity bill increase (with of course the disclaimer that I don't know exactly what my bill would have been, without the car charging, but based on increase in power bill over usual expectation)... it looks like I spent in the region of NZ$60 more in power. I definitely spent $360 less in petrol, than I would have done travelling those km's in the Toyota 86.

    For the green leaning folk, I would note that electricity in NZ is nearly all renewable (wind, hydro etc, very little coal).
