    Lexus 250h: Man! Is it going to be hard to move cars around now? ... or what!
    :D

    Ok, it's not ours ... it's our neighbors ~ Marietta showing of her brand new shiny new Pearl White beauty (yes, she was gloating ... but very poker faced nevertheless). She says she LOVES it way more than her Prius (the brandy wine colored 2005) ... which her husband just inherited. Off the top of my head I don't remember what the 250h gets mpg wise, but she says she's getting 32mpg's. If you zoom into the pic' you'll see they've gone with the blue badge background like the Gen III Prius. It's the first time I got to see one up close and personal, and hey! . . . I like it!

    324 mpgs eh? Time to trade both for an HSh ;).

    I think she's about EPA mileage IIRC.

    I also prefer the Lexus dark blue over our 2010's more light blue.. kinda like the smilies :cool:

    which model did she get? Standard? Premium?

    I asked which package a day ago (finally) just as she & my wife were heading out the door. She said, "I got the top package, without the laser thing" :rolleyes: (maybe she meant lane assist?). So I don't know how to reconcile getting the top, without one item ... seems like you have to have more than 2 packages if you could do that.

    There's the standard pkg., premium, and premium with tech pkg. It sounds like she has the premium, true if it has the upgraded perforated leather and nav. in it.
