Use WeatherTech To Protect

WeatherTech bug shield

That is a cheesy title, but accurate for sure. WeatherTech is the industry leader in many areas of plastic protection for your hybrid. Floor mats, bug shields, and sunroof wind deflectors are just a few.

There are other companies that offer the same products, so what sets WeatherTech apart? Each part they produce is designed specifically for your car. Their products are laser cut to fit a Toyota Prius, Honda CR-Z, or whatever car you drive. None of this sloppy fitting material that bunches up under your feet or having to drill extra holes because the product is generalized for several models.

Whether you want to protect your carpeting or paint, WeatherTech has a long lasting, custom fit product for you.

Drop And Pop With Honda CR-Z Springs

Honda CR-Z springs

Many CR-Z owners look for ways to enhance the performance of their car. Honda CR-Z springs can be the last thing to cross their minds, when they should be the first.

Honda CR-Z springs offer a wide variety of benefits. From a stance viewpoint, they drop the car about an inch front and rear, giving that lowered look without having to worry about ride, performance, or handling. They can pop your speed on the track and in the 0-60 by reducing the aerodynamic drag on your vehicle. The lower drag also helps to increase fuel efficiency.

Honda CR-Z springs can be a great first step to tricking your ride. Once you have the stance lowered, you can look into reducing the weight with a carbon fiber hood, then move on to engine modification. There is a whole world of possibilities after the springs are replaced.

Lose Weight And Add Performance With A Honda CR-Z Carbon Fiber Hood

Honda CR-Z carbon fiber hood

There are only so many modifications that you can make to your car’s engine without doing a complete build out. That leaves you looking at non-engine options like weight reduction. A Honda CR-Z carbon fiber hood offers the most obvious option.

A Honda CR-Z carbon fiber hood can reduce your car’s weight by as much as 30lbs(13.6 kg). That may not sound too amazing to the uninitiated, until you realize that losing that much weight can mean as much as half a second in 0-60 time.

There are several other ways to reduce the weight of you car, but the Honda CR-Z carbon fiber hood offers one of the greatest weight reductions in one area.

Protect Your Investment With Custom Seat Covers

Custom seat covers

The front seats are the first part of any car that will show wear and tear. Sliding in or catching something in your pocket on a seam; it does not take much to start that first rip. Custom seat covers could be the best way that you can protect interior of your car.

By custom seat covers, we are not talking about your monogram or a personalized image. Custom seat covers are ones that are designed to fit you car. The manufacturers specs are used to fit each individual make and model to insure a tight fit that will enhance your interior.

Protect Your Investment With A Prius Bumper Guard

2010&2011 Prius Bumper Guard

Loading and unloading packages, luggage, or just leaving your car in a parking lot while you shop can take a toll on the rear bumper of your Prius. Why let daily life take deal damage to your car when you can protect it with a Prius bumper guard?

This is not a replacement for your bumper, nor is it going to be some rough looking set of black strips that will alter the appearance of your car. A 2010&2011 Prius bumper guard is a clear applique with the Prius logo embedded on its surface. Bumper guards for other years look a little different, but all offer a quality look for your Prius.

Adding a Prius bumper guard will protect your painted bumper from everyday wear and tear while adding a little splash of style in an unexpected place. Doesn’t your car deserve it?
