Yea I know, and I hate it. I tried to fix it but I can't seem to find where the cord starts at, so I'am gonna let the dealership fix it for me when I bring it in for an oil change or maybe when I get it lowered (thinking about May, the price to get it lowered by toyota is a bit expensive).

The actual rolling diameter of the 14's and 15's is pretty close due to the different profile tires used. No one really NEEDS to lower their car for the street, however you will WANT to lower it for the looks, and better handling. I convinced my "accountant" I NEEDED the lowering kit for "SAFETY" reasons.
Accident avoidance is a serious issue, and I am better prepared to deal with it.

Ah, the old "Mismarket to the other-half" technique LOL j/k

but for real, being lower to the ground will allow better handling & thus better accident avoidance.

You got that right. I was able to drive both standard and lowered versions, the difference in cornering and braking was very noticeable. Ride quality doesn't seem to suffer either, and since it is a Toyota part ..... no effect on the warranty. Seems like WIN WIN WIN to me. Of course if you are going racing .............

yeah, keeping the total warranty is a good thing for sure. I'll be losing parts of it here & there, as I get money & I get parts (the non-Toyota Kind)

True. But it is a Toyota and the odds of you ever actually needing the warranty are smaller than winning the multi-million dollar lottery.

White is definitely the way to go!
And lowering it is a very good idea. I have 1.7" drop Spirit Springs from Revspot. Handles well and not overly stiff.
