    Congrats on your new 2021 PPLimited.

    Let me know how the TSS2.0 is compared to your previous 2020 PP. Maybe next year, if the rebate gets up to $4500 again, I may trade in my 2020 PP.

    Thanks!

    Well, I currently work from home, and they've just shut down the gyms again; so, I'll get to drive the car once a week to the grocery stores.

    One thing that is noticeably better with TSS 2.0 is that you get the speed limits next to the speedometer at all times, which is very nice. TSS 2.0 also has automatic lane centering with cruise control and barrier detection, the latter of which seems to be an important safety feature.

    Why don't you do what I did and trade in your LE for a Limited and still lower your car payments by extending the duration of your loan? You will also make $7,000–$8,000 cash from the rebates and credits if you do this by the end of the year. The more you wait, the more you will lose on your trade-in. Perhaps you can even join our Blue Magnetism club, which adds extra excitement to the car in addition to the excitement you get from all the very nice Limited features.

    Thanks!

    The Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S low-rolling-resistance tires are made in Japan by Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. They are S-rated with 51 psi cold pressure.

    My car was the second-latest-arrival Limited Blue Magnetism currently in stock in Southern California, manufactured in October 2020, the latest one being in Carlsbad. So, the latest batch seems to have the Dunlop. Some earlier 2021 batches had the Bridgestone and Toyo. A new batch is currently on a Ro–Ro.

    By the way you were right about the Blue Magnetism being "the" Prius Prime! It gives the car its character.

    Well, I just traded in my 2017 PP Premium to 2020 PP LE earlier this year. I can't use additional federal tax credit if I buy this year. Besides, the Toyota rebate is only $2500 on the 2021 models compared to $4500 on the 2020 models right now. Yeah, if they up the rebate on the 2021 model next year up to $4500, I will be able to take advantage of the rebate plus tax credit again to swap the car to a new one free or maybe even with some profit.

    IMO, any 'real' colour is better than the mono chromatic white, black or in between that it seems 90% of new cars wear, except possibly the anti-theft metallic pink on some Mitsubishi Mirages.

    Clear film in the front is also a nice touch;).

    Excellent choice though(y).

    We passed on the blue one on the lot and waited 3 months for a black one. But to each their own!

    @Gokhan, would you like to trade hubcaps? Mine are mint, I have 1300 miles on my LE.

    No. Why? I like to keep everything original.

    I've never been as content with a car. It is a mountain-size upgrade from the XLE to the Limited and they seem to have improved the steering in the 2021 models, as it feels sharper and more responsive. Last but not least, I love the Blue Magnetism color, which makes the car so much more personal than the usual four shades of gray and a delight to own!

    Nice!

    Here's it's sister (my blue 2020), with tinted windows, hubcaps removed, & yellow Lamin-X applied to the fog lamp covers:
