    So what is the per litre price up there now? I don't feel like doing the math...:)

    I haven't been up yonder in many yrs.

    I prefer to use US mpg only because it's more popular and PC is a US-based site.

    Ranges from 89.9ยข/litre to $1.309/litre depending on city/town

    Where can I find a Blue Magnetism Prius Prime in or near Colorado? I also want the moongel interior in the Premium version. I found 1 in California and 1 in Columbus, Ohio online last night, but can't find any within a reasonable distance of me. Can anyone help? I am a serious buyer and want to trade my 2008 Prius in on it. I appreciate any thoughts and help.

    If you're trying to get one before the new year for tax reasons, you'll probably have to search closer to the coasts.

    prime's have just begun shipping recently, so getting what you want immediately has proven difficult for many here.

    That is partly why I want one, but mostly because I think it will be the best upgrade and just want to own one.

    Some users say @DianneWhitmire sells & ships sometimes. You should contact here, especially since you found a car in California.

    Her latest Prime listing is at:

    From what dealers are telling me on this car, they cannot do that.

    I'm placing a deposit on an order tomorrow with Sean Starkweather in Internet sales, Toyota of Santa Fe, NM.

    My local Colorado dealer was not particularly interested in my MSRP and no junk or doc fee offer but they never said that ordering was a problem.

    The one in Columbus Ohio was sold today.

    I stopped to look at it and whilst waiting for my trade-in to be appraised the sales person walked up and told me that it had been sold to someone that just wrote a check for MSRP +$1,000.

    TBH, I'd rather have a Plus. Didn't like the large touch screen.

    I used to live in Albuquerque NM and I have to pay 1000 deposit just for the waiting list for MSRP price. Took me 4 months to get my white prius. However, my friend in the bay area managed to get the car within a week back in end of 2004.

    Now I have relocated to Bayarea a few yrs back. The new prius is much easier to get in my case. Why not swing by to the bay area for a vaca and pickup the car - and have a nice drive back to Denver.

    I actually drove from ABQ to Bayarea for only 3 tanks in my old 2005 prius.. The new Prius is going to be more efficient and also fun to drive in my opinion.

    This is my 2017 Prius Prime being prepped at Larry H Miller Toyota in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Everyone was as excited as me since it is only the 2nd Prius Prime to enter Colorado and it is the ONLY Blue Magnetism in the state at this time. The car is a dream to drive and to say we love it does not cover how we feel. Bill Stahelin is the GM there at the dealership and he treated us like royalty the whole time we were there. Everton Allen was our Sales guy and he cannot be praised enough. He too treated us like gold. He was friendly, knowledgeable and informative from the second we met him. The entire staff there went out of their way to make us feel at home. I have been in many dealerships over the years and this dealer is top notch thru and thru. The video shows our 2017 Prius Prime being readied. It had just gotten off the truck and they allowed us to watch the process. The video is just the highlights. I hope you love it. The car is a dream and I can't recommend it enough. I also cannot recommend the dealership enough. Many more videos will come to show you this car. The video is at

    Couldn't be 2nd, since I drove one and saw another at Stevenson Toyota East a few weeks ago. Neither was blue, however.

    Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for word as to when my Blue/Moonstone/Advanced will arrive. No word yet. I wouldn't have taken delivery until next year anyway since that's when the tax credit doubles. But I'd sure like to get it soon after the new year starts.

    I get my 2010 Prius serviced there.

    Three pieces of undercarriage shielding recently became damaged. One was probably due to their not fastening the oil change flap properly but the other two were due to our driving over a large metal piece dropped by a truck on an interstate. The manager was very fair in agreeing that Toyota brand parts were not needed to replace what are basically molded sheets of plastic. I ordered all 3 parts for about $100 and he agreed to install all of them at no charge. If they had covered all cost of the oil flap damage but charged me for the rest it would have cost more.

    So, I think you will be happy with their service dept as well. Like most dealers, when I get oil and filter changes, they do recommend extra services. They don't pressure me when I politely decline.

    By the way, are you still located in Texas or are you in the Springs now? I'll keep an eye out for your Prime. Enjoy!

    Does blue magnetism have some kind of special effect,such as the magnetic grays or blizzard pearl glitter effect in sunlight ?
