    Speaking of "options." Does the Prime still have the noise making device to warn pedestrians of your approach? I could hear it on my 2013 v when driving at low speeds with the windows down but can't hear anything from the Prime.

    Does someone know if the lighted door sill can be added if not factory installed as an option?

    Our 2010 has the illuminated sills, and till recently I figured they were part of the package on our (Canadian) Touring model, but apparently not, having had another look at the brochures. They were on the car when we discovered it, covered in dust and about 10 kms on the odo (not 10K, just 10). I don't know the back story, but I'd guess a sale fell through??

    Anyway, I'm rambling: maybe these illuminated sills light up someone's pleasure centres, lol, but I can take or leave them. Their main function seems to be draining the 12 volt faster in the event of a door left ajar.

    Hey Mr. Huskers, how about a CD player for the Advanced; is it available?

    No that option went away with the telegraph and the Pony Express.

    They were added to the Touring package later on (2012 or 2013).

    I like mine :) I changed my front door courtesy lights to red LEDs so they contrast nicely with the blue PRIUS and HSD doorsill illumination.

    Yeah, that's what I call Retrofitting!
    My other concern is what about a right door left ajar; is that considered a Moderate Mason? (Really had to go far ajar for that one!!)!!
