    I guess the user is talking of the white leds. Rear fog lights in EU must be red, so no.
    Edit: checked on the owner manual, they are fog lights, but they turn red on use.

    I've just visited my yellow Top of the line w/solar roof now arrived from Japan, but still have to drive it :)

    @Maxwell61
    Just because the light cover is white for design reasons, doest mean the LED cannot be red.

    Congrats to you car. You ordered later than me and got it earlier :sneaky:

    Yes, i've editd my message, checking on the manual, they are foglights

    Well, 8 months from signed contract, and with a pre-order of the 9th of feb, i hope you'll hve it soon! In Italy the problem was the Top trim as mine, the other two are just 2-3 months delivery.

    (There must be a problem in pics upload in the forum today).

    @Maxwell61
    Nice enjoy - and I hope the warning sounds will not be too annoying :rolleyes:

    But how come it took one more month? Did it not arrive already one month ago at the dealership?

    Correct Anders, the car arrived the 6th feb at the dealer and i fully payed it. But i've asked to keep it in their deposit, my old car was still unsold (still unsold on a website) and i've tried to avoid to pay 2 insurances. They gave me time till the 1st march and i've been forced to take delivery.

    The problem of the speed warning it's a bit less than i thought, it's quite low volume, just the radio cover quite a bit. But anyway, having verified that the whole RSA it's unreliable and does a lot of mistakes, i choosed to deactivate the whole signal recognition, which is much faster than silencing just the speed warning bip.

    And another pain in the a** is the lane warning, it doesn't remain deactivate after a new start... I hate those Adas.

    Gawd that’s a beautiful car! Of course I’m partial to yellow. (truth be told, my silver SE is not too darn ugly)

    Something different - unfortunately in German and slightly annoying talker but he was driving the prius phev (19" standard tires) on the Nürburgring racingtrack for one round which is around 21kms. Summary:
    • Vmax up to 190kmh
    • Mpg was 12.2 (19.2l/100km)
    • Battery went from 80% to 32%
    • Esp going crazy and hazzard light activates very often during braking
    • Overall surprisingly good performance

    Below is an AWD slip test. This typically tests how limited slip is between wheels side to side and front to back. This result indicates that the car will limit rear wheel power even more than front wheel power with the TC on.
