Another update ish, I installed TRD skirts, lip, rear diffuser, modified the factory exhaust with functional dual outlets/tips. I updated to 2018+ taillights but I am still in progress for figuring out the turn signal problem (already have LED flasher relay installed without any luck). I’ll likely do another thread once that’s all done to my liking.
Do these tallights fit a 2013 model? Considering these but have been getting conflicting information on compatibility because of the hatch appliqué panel.

Been looking for outlets/tips like these for a similar modification. Don’t want to spend on a new exhaust system. If you don’t mind what kind of outlets are these?

Found them on eBay, here's a link to the exact tips/outlets I bought

As far as the piping, you would only need 2.5" 90 Degree Elbow / Piping, if you're picky then you can get SS Mandrel bends like the one below
Thank you! This is helpful

I'm a little curious as to what you did for the second outlet as well, did you just cut a hole into the driver side of the factory muffler or something? I'm trying to retain the factory exhaust sound with the stock muffler, last thing I want is to amplify the sound of a prius motor paired to a CVT
Good question. I’d like to know this as well

I thought there wouldn't be an exhaust note change since I modified tips on the stock muffler. However, there is a subtle deep tone to it. I cut a hole on the other side, fed part of the 2.5" pipe through for the 2nd outlet. There is baffling that goes out the stock outlet, while the left/driver side of the muffler was empty. I do not notice the sound at all while driving, only outside the car when idle. It is very subtle so I do not mind it. View attachment 61407 View attachment 61408
This looks great. I also wouldn’t mind a deeper idle but not looking drastically change the sound. Thanks for sharing your process with all of us. Really grateful!

P.S. did you weld yourself or take to a shop?

There’s a similar thread on clublexus, comparing 202(black/onyx) and 212 obsidian. If we were talking door panels or hoods or fenders, maybe i’d paint it yourself with the right code. for plastic trim pieces I wouldn’t bother. The way paint hits plastic vs. galvanized steel or aluminum panels always looks slightly different anyway.

the thread is in the 2nd gen IS forum titled “Is there any difference between Black Onyx (202) or Obsidian (212)?”

edit: if you do end up getting it unpainted and painting it yourself, the last two digits (C0 in your case) indicate paint color. you can find the part number for unpainted with a little searching. I recently repainted one of my Audi’s in my garage with a harbor freight sprayer with axalta coating’s challenger low voc base coat. half pint should give you enough to paint it twice in case you mess up for around $40. I used Valspar’s V-series European clear and ran about $200 for the 7.5 liter kit, but it’s good for a couple years if you do any bumper resprayings etc in the future. I had great results with these.
This is helpful. Thank you!
