Whats up guys. Fairly new CT owner here. Got tired of being a guy in a prius but loved the reliability/MPG of these motors so decided to upgrade to the fancy prius. and it is the PERFECT DD. Got this 17 F sport CT with about 50k miles for 26k at carmax. Figured if ima go into debt might as well get the F Sport.
Worked at Toyota for 8 years of my life, So fairly familiar with the 1NZ-FXE motor. I also make YouTube videos on my offtime about life as a mechanic and advice when it comes to working in the industry as well as DIYs.
I also have a 94 LS400 that I plan to do another VIP build. and a 96 Nissan 240sx S14 that is a pure drift/track build. Not too sure on the rules here but will try to keep it about the CT when posting stuff.
Anyways heres 2 pics. First one when I picked the car up. 2nd is after adding tint (35%windshield, 15%front sides, 5%rears) and window visors. Already have wheels and tires ready to go on just waiting for my coilovers to arrive since I dont like having wheel gap with aftermarket wheels. So if anyone is interested in the stock wheels/tires and in socal feel free to shoot an offer.

I already saw and approved the post. There was nothing wrong with it. I think the anti-spam bots didn't appreciate all the youtube timestamp links from a new user and thought it was spam lol. But it's all good, it's an automated process. So nobody denied anything, it just had to be manually approved.

Got it in April, Got it shipped from Texas carmax to CA then picked it up, super easy process, never bought a car from carmax or a dealership before.
