    Yes it just so happens that I'll be taking delivery of my new 2010 Prius on my birthday, tomorrow! :)

    It's the Canadian Premium package, in silver.

    I wanted leather seats, and they didn't have one at the dealership, so I arranged through the dealership to have a local upholsterer to swap out the fabric for heated leather seats. I checked in on it the other day while he was working on it and it looked freaking amazing. Better than factory leather, by far, and at the same cost. Will post pics as soon as I can.

    I'm trading in my 2007 FJ Cruiser, which was the first new vehicle I ever bought. So going to be about the most extreme change possible, short of trading in a Mack truck. Expecting to save $200/mo on gas and $200/mo on car payments, and possibly some on insurance.

    Anyway, this looks like a fantastic forum, and I've been reading through threads for a few days. Very knowledgeable people in here.

    Just a couple mods I want to do:
    - swap out XM module for Sirius
    - wire in my amp & subwoofer

    Heading to bed now to make tomorrow come faster. :)

    Happy birthday. Did you spend the "Birth night" sleeping in your car? Remember to post some pictures of your leather seats. We'd love to share your joy.

    Happy Birthday! Please let us know about the seats when they're done. Let us know the brand, and, if you can, go to the Toyota dealership and compare them with the leather seats in a new Prius, and let us know.

    Have a blast with the car!!!

    Happy birthday and congratulations!

    With regard to swapping out XM for Sirius...
    is that necessary? Sirius bought XM a couple
    years ago, so the programming is/can be the
    same. In other words, you're supposed to
    be able to get a Sirius package delivered over
    XM.
