Accessorizing Your Toyota Camry Hybrid

The Toyota Camry is one of the most popular automobiles ever made. With the new 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid parts and accessory options, owners can be proud to be driving the latest model in high tech style. This article will fill you in on some of the hottest trends in accessorizing the Camry Hybrid with genuine Toyota parts. Choosing this car shows you are a person of style, so let’s take it a step further and really give this fabulous car a personality of its own! A car with heated seats and a moon roof deserves a little pampering on the outside too.

One of the first things you should do is have the paint protection film applied to your car. This helps preserve the beauty of your Camry and can also help save money from all of those nicks, scratches and chips that you would otherwise have to repair yourself using genuine Toyota parts. The film is practically invisible and you’ll be much happier when you’re driving behind an eighteen wheeler blasting sand all over you. You could also choose to add the front end mask, which has the Camry logo for a more sporty look.

Now that you’ve chosen to be a wise and environmentally conscious consumer, don’t you want to let the world know? Of course you do! The gold “Hybrid Synergy Drive” applique is a nice addition to the side of any Toyota Camry Hybrid. You’re the cream of the crop, and your car is too, so why not show the world? It’s a beautiful applique that gives personality to you and your car. If you’re a more modest type person, you might be happier with the rear window sticker which has the simple words “Hybrid Synergy Drive” in white lettering on a clear background. You could also apply this sticker to the side windows if you prefer. There is also a rear bumper applique with the beautiful Toyota logo.

The third of the genuine Toyota parts I recommend was originally only available for the Camry Hybrid 50th Anniversary Special Edition vehicle, but now it’s available for all Camry owners in a “Smoke Chrome” finish. It’s the 16 inch, 15 spoke alloy wheel, and it’s a beauty. These light weight wheels also help with fuel efficiency and less vibration. You can also get chrome door handle covers, chrome mirror covers and chrome tail light bezel trim.

There are many more Toyota Camry parts and accessories to choose from, including a sport exhaust system, lowering springs, mudguards, rear spoilers and body side moldings. All of these are excellent choices, but the paint protection film and the alloy wheels are an excellent way to not only improve the looks of your Toyota Camry, but also to help preserve it and make it more efficient. Adding the flare of the applique or the sticker simply tells the world who you are and what you stand for, and that’s a good thing too. There are also many choices in car alarms to further protect your investment in your Toyota Camry. Enjoy the ride!

Keeping Your Toyota Hubcaps in Shape

So your Toyota vehicle is no longer just another car passing in the street or parked in another fellow’s garage.

Just a month ago you were bored with your car’s looks and have been scouring the market for ways to give your beloved Toyota ride a little facelift without necessarily wiping the face off your wallet, or your credit card. You were happy to find that Toyota offered a vast array of top of the line car parts and accessories to give your car that additional zing – from colorful seat covers, floor carpets, and steering wheels for your car’s interiors to body kits, ground effects, spoilers and hubcaps for its exterior.

For your car, you picked the Toyota hubcaps (also known as wheel covers) – those round metallic disks designed to fit snugly over the center space of a car’s tires. More than protecting the lug nuts from exposure to the elements, Toyota hubcaps were guaranteed to give your vehicle a boost to its overall style. You were amazed at the vast collection of hubcap designs you were free to choose from: from the simple yet elegant steel wheel covers to the trendy hubcaps featuring a free-spinning center element, and to the upscale wheel covers which used separate anti-theft retaining screws with separate caps or covers. Before you knew it, you were sporting a trendier car around the neighborhood and the city.

So now that the new look is in place, how do you get to keep it?

True, maintaining a complete set of hubcaps can be a real challenge. The main reason for this is the process of changing tires. Every time you change tires, your Toyota Hubcaps must be pried out with a screwdriver or some other tool, which eventually causes the cap to warp. Since few drivers diligently carry around rubber mallets with them, more often than not, hubcaps are reattached loosely and incorrectly. This ultimately leads to the loss of one or more hubcaps. To avoid this from happening, take the time to periodically secure your Toyota Hubcaps by tapping the rim in a circular pattern with a rubber mallet.

In addition, your hubcaps should also be cleaned periodically. When washing your car, always use a suitable cleaner. Use care when removing your Toyota hubcaps when changing tires to make sure you don’t damage or dislodge any of the retention clips. Bent or missing retention clips will cause your hubcaps to fall off, a waste of good money if you never find the missing hubcap again. When reinstalling the wheel cover, use extreme care not to break or bend the retention clips, especially when it comes to hubcaps with plastic clips. Apply pressure to the wheel cover evenly and gradually; never force the cover on. When installed properly, your Toyota hubcaps should be evenly seated around the edge of the wheel. If in any unfortunate event you should lose a hubcap, you can find comfort in the knowledge that finding an affordable replacement may only be a mouse’s click away.
