    Now back to ground clearance issue.

    Who has installed spacers in prius 2nd gen? someone told me if we install 1 inch spacer in 2nd Gen, it increases ground clearance by 1/2 inch. Is this correct?

    I have installed spacers in my 10th Anniversary Edition. The difference in ground clearance before and after is amazing. Its underbelly used to scrape against each and every speed bump. Now it hardly ever touches these bumps.

    I dont think u will face any problems after 1 inch spacers are installed

    And suspension i dont know how much a beating it wud take on Multani roads

    So u shud ask some1 from multan

    I have a client using a Prius there if u want i can pm u his number u can ask him

    If ur worried abt road clearance prius alpha has better road clearance and higher quality suspension than regular 3rd gen

    Peace for Everyone !

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Do you think that installing spacers could effect its drive.

    & from where I can get these spacers installed. Should I trust road side mechanics?? Because I don't think toyota motors would offer such service.

    I am concerned about this road clearance because today while the test drive of a 3rd Gen Prius (which hopefully I will be taking over tomorrow) unexpectedly hit a jump so hard that we four people in the car became still for a moment & the expressions of the owner were too miserable to describe here.

    Please convince me if its low ground clearance is really a point of concern for me or should I just go with the deal.

    I will be thankful for ur kind response

    If you r buying a prius then you should install spacers in ur car right away coz ground clearance is a big issue for this car. It kisses even the smallest breakers with 4 people on board.
    I am a prius owner and i suffer a lot due to its ground clearance and i dont want to install spacer in my car coz it will spoil the looks and suspension of my car as my prius is s touring edition and it came with oem 17" alloys.
    i am from karachi and i m not familiar with the roads in multan but i think the road conditions in multan might be even worse then karachi.

    Bfr buying u shud mention the package, mileage and price and seek advice from mmbers before buying

    Installing Spacers is post purchase issue

    Get ur pre purchase issues cleared first

    G package also has alcantara upholstery besides cruise and leather steering plus keyless from passenger side

    L can also have aftermarket navi and camera but also doesnt have reverse wiper besides not having fog lamps and fixed driving seat height

    Thanks for ur concern.
    It's a standard S package with 4 grade and 87000km mileage.The car is truely total geniune with few scratches on bumpers only. Today i will verify its auction sheet online as the guy had imported it himself.
    Moreover its 2011 model and 2014 registered.
    The edge i have here is that it is already Lahore registered so saving the registration fee and hassle.
    I have finalized the deal in 23.5.

    I hope it's the right price or plz guide me otherwise.

    Considering current market price and that its registered i wudnt pay above 23 thats max bcz colour is silver

    if u buy a car these days from Japan auction S package u can get it below 21 easily
    @jaggi has a pearl white S on the way u can ask him how much he is selling for

    Bro its called prius c in north america

    In japan its called Prius Aqua or just Aqua

    Same engine as 2nd gen

    So np with routine maintenance

    Just body parts are the main problem currents

    Rate for 2012 is quite high

    But u can get a little high mileage or with some touching below 17 lacs on booking if u buy at a good price from japan
