    Have there been threads on a supplier for a power liftgate system? Not just an opener (latch unlock) - but a power lift and close system.

    Wife had a Lexus RX-330 prior to the Prius and is beating me up about this amenity - as well as rain sensor wipers (found a supplier for that) and powered seats. I know, if she wanted that stuff I should have bought her another RX....the Prius mpg is just too good to go back to an RX - even an 'h' model.

    Maybe by 2012 there will be a luxury Prius - or an RX on the Prius platform, oh well!:(

    Where did you find the rain sensor wipers? Do you have a link to the supplier? Thanks.

    There kind of is, it's called the Lexus HS250h...http://www.lexus.com/models/HSh/

    But it has a larger 4 cylinder engine which makes it get 35 MPG average, not 50 MPG. :(

    It's unlikely on Prius. :)
    I'd rather get at least driver power seat though.

    I actually believe there is a post and articles that they share the same....

    I wish we had Power Seats too, and Rain Sensing Wipers and Auto Headlamps...All those things would be really nice. Maybe a HUD.

    With those two options, no installation required:p
