    Hi Friends...

    Sorry but need help again...lol !
    I have a Prime Premium on order, but its looks like it will be awhile longer. In the mean time the exact color and options just showed up in and Advance. What difference should I pay, and is it worth it? I guess I should react quick as they seem to be going quicker than I ever thought.

    Thanks again for all your help!

    I got the Advanced, I love it. Totally worth the price difference. The backup Warning Systems to warn you of rear cross-traffic and pedestrians is fantastic. The Blind Spot monitoring is wonderful. All the extra bells and whistles that it has are totally worth the money.

    Dealers in my area are charging MSRP so $4300 difference give or take a few depending on inlcuded accessories for both models.

    Thanks for the advice. The dealer that has it now is closed. So I don't even know for sure that they would give it up. My dealer was sure they could have my original order in less then a week. And now that doesn't look possible. So hoping something will work our for us!

    I was getting a Premium at 1st but switched to the Advanced. Well worth the extra money for all the things listed above and the sound system.

    You can review thread called "Thread for All Confirmed Prices." and develop price differences. The lowest price for an Prime Advanced stated in thread is 29638 by "eguigal".

    Wow, those prices are fantabulous!
    All I can say is, get those puppies now "before the gold rush" Our gas prices here in California are slated to go up quite a bit this Fall. I'm waiting for the gnashing of teeth, and hopefully a buying frenzy for Prime cars!!
