I got the call that my Tideland Pearl 2005 BC Package #6 is on its way! I had some questions for those of you who already have your Prius:

1) Does anyone know if Tideland Pearl of 2004 is the same as 2005? I really hope so!

2) Is there anything I should know before I go pick it up or do when I pick it up?

3) Did you make any mistakes when you first got your Prius you wish you hadn't?

4) Any other advice for a new Prius owner/driver?!

Thanks! I can't wait for my car! :lol:

Check both the fuel gage AND the battery SOC on the MFD ("Consumption" screen); a full tank and a low battery does NOT equal a full tank. My first tank mpg "suffered" b/c the battery was only at 2 bars when I got it. :p

I wouldn't say "mistake", but I probably should have picked up my clear floor mats earlier to keep the Prius floor mats cleaner. I also (apparently) waited "longer than necessary" to wax it; not sure how long you're supposed to wait after the paint protector is applied before waxing it for the first time.

Go to John1701a's web site under "Prius info" and get (and read) all the "H" documents. 8)
