    Just pick her up today. Technology Plus Package in Canada. Package 4 in the US plus sport rims and sunroof.

    Now I just have to figure out how to get entune on this thing! I'm going to register with a USA address and download the app from the US app store for my iphone. I did get the internet working for Bing map searches. One step at a time, so much tech in this car...i have to keep my eyes on the road:)

    It's called Alpine white. It looks "whiter" then that in person.
    It's the lightest white they have.

    Just called XM and switched to a USA account so I can listen to Howard Stern.
    Also, give them a US address in a state where there's no sales tax and save a few bucks.

    Here in the US, we get white in moonglow and super white. The moonglow is a sparkly, greenish tint white while the super white is a gloss, solid color white. I assume your market there only has alpine white? Very nice color for the car. My original intent was to go for a super white c.

    Thanks for posting the pics. Enjoy the car... I know you will! :)

    This is so very pretty! The Super White we have here in the US was my second choice of color. It's lovely, enjoy :)

    I would pay to avoid listening to Howard Stern.

    Congrats! I'm still waiting for my car to arrive, might be another 2 more weeks to hit Toronto. Guess you're luckier cuz BC is closer to Japan than omtarioK :)

    Do let me know how you got bing to work and if you can get entune or pandora to work too.

    Also could you post some more pics of the interior? I'm curious to see if the technology premium package has an all dark interior, versus the two-tone dash and cloth seats of the base models.

    It's mostly dark except the doors. In my opinion it a drastic improvement as the base kinda looks cheap. The seats are not two tone but do have a some "graphic" detail to the soft tex. [​IMG]

    Hmm looks like your pics aren't showing up anymore. Does anyone know if this is a PriusChat problem with their image host?
