Grats John! Now don't get you brake and 'Go' pedals mixed up and drive it into your pond like other Prius owners have done. :LOL

Hey John,

Perhaps you didn't notice them in the Erie meet pics on BPro but they've been on the car and looking great. I haven't taken any whorage pics yet because I'm waiting to put her back together after the wheelstud incident. I finally grabbed the clips I need to mount the front fender SSEi skirt (dealer would only order them if I bought a whole pack at $90 for 30 clips) and a cowbell to replace the busted one from when I got hit while parked at the mall shortly after. <sigh>

As for the summer... what summer? I seem to recall going from spring right to fall this year; the only bonus was the week of indian summer we had not too loing ago. LOL

I bet its gorgeous down your way or has peak foilage already passed? I've got 15th - 18th off and plan on being down Binghamton to get more stuff off an L36 twin of my car sometime in there; perhaps I could swing out your way for a bit but I havent heard from my wiofe if she'* planning on taking off the same time so I may or may not have company.

With the cold and wet, Peak came fast, but is holding. Leaf color is about varied as it can get and holding. but they are falling off the trees really fast. The 15th would be the best day for me, but let me know and we'll see how it works out. Glad to hear the wheels are on your Bonne and you are liking them. I thought it a good deal, and better to be on a friends car, than sit and rust in the garage.

50-55 MPG steady. Runs good on the snow with all 4 studded tires. It'* a nicely made utility car.

Hey! My room mate was considering getting a prius but she had one concern with the way the door locks work. When you walk up to the door, does just the driver door unlock, or do all of the doors unlock? She'* a little paranoid.
