    What happened to the seating problems the Prius was giving you? No longer an issue?

    I do not know, does this make you a n00b all over again :)

    Howdy. no rent. traded in. The coupe, wow, a firmly suspended, focused ride. I no like automatic transmissions, shift up, down, idle, idle, always running. I shed some tears saying goodbye to it. I can't turn cars every year or two, oh no no. I'm conservative, love comfort and practicality, ah man the 3rd gen is comfy. Love it. :) Pic later, camera battery kaput.

    Interesting note, Toyo S'vale 10 point g'tee. One is 3 day, 250 mi money back guarantee, can you believe it. but I won't be returning :) Silver / dk gray. I'm not even a Raiders fan. Niners here :)

    --------
    I sold that project seat to ... I forget his handle here. Seat problems. I forgot.

    How are you all doing?

    I wish I had seen that sooner. I have a 11am appointment at Luscious Garage, so depending on what time the car gets finished, I'll try to make it there.

    I would do clear bra too because the Gen III is a huge chip magnet.

    Dare you to copy me and get Huper Optik tint. :D

    Congrats and welcome back (to the car, obviously you haven't left the site). While reading through this post, I thought for sure (like The Critic) you were getting a V, likely for the ergonomics.

    I hope the seat works better for you this time around.

    Thank you, I appreciate it. I'm smiling going down the road. :D

    It's a healthy car. 52.3 at 40 miles into this trip.

    Hello fellow Priuschatters :)

    Everything is going great. I look forward to putting a leather wrap on the steering wheel. I guess Wheelskins is the way to go with that.

    Congrats...
    You almost convinced me to buy a v, you were so interested in those. I have not seen a v yet, but have a weak spot for the concept too.
