I am picking up my 2006 Prius, Super White/Bisque, Pkg #8 in 2 hours. I can't wait, after months of reading the forum, I am finally in the club.

Congrats and good luck with it. I finally got my call today after waiting since July for my 06' that it will be in next week. (Black with Grey) If it was Monday I was going to take it but he says most likely it will be the middle of the week so they're holding it until Jan 2nd.

Forfeiting the tax credit avaailable next week? Possible tax savings of $3,100.
Dealers across the country are probably looking at Prii on the lots for the first time in ages, as people wait for next week to pick them up. I wonder if any of them are taking advantage of this by getting radio spots saying "Now, for a limited time, a chance to test drive a Prius!" Since so many dealers can't keep them on the lots long enough to give test drives. That's what I'd do.

If my dealer began giving test drives in 'my' car and I saw mileage on it they can keep it quite honestly. I expect the car to be tucked away somewhere and they know this. If its on the showroom to be sat in or used as a test drive car they can keep it and I'll keep my money. Sorry but that's how 'I' want the deal to go down.

I've been out and about in middle TN over the past 3 days and I've noticed Prii on the lots of several Toyota dealerships. They're right up front for display so I don't know if they've already been sold or not. But I had the same thought -- if someone was on the fence about buying one, they should take advantage of the situation and take a test drive. I know my test drive sealed the deal for me. :)

Very smart for you ( 06 Tax Credit ) and very nice dealer for holding the 06 Prius for you till Jan 2nd .. I do have "Dozens" of 06 for my 06 Prius customers till Jan 02 06 registration and delivery so my Customers can benefit for the 06 Tax Credit as well !
