Discussion Starter #1
I've been waiting on a new Black 2004 Prius with Package #9 for about a week and a half now, and each day seems that much longer. The delivery date that I was told is February 15, so I guess I just need to buck up and get used to the wait.

In the meantime, I have been scouring the net for some good Prius discussion groups and have found this one. I have heard there is also a group on Yahoo! Can anyone recommend some more really good Prius websites to momentarily abate my salivation?

Thanks!

Swampthing,
This is the most on-topic and, generally speaking, well-mannered newsgroup that I've found for Prius enthusiasts. The Yahoo group is more active but is riddled with advertising and seems to attract more YELLING!!! I've found alt.autos.toyota to be pretty useless for Prius owners. IMO, if there is one "must have" Prius website it would be http://www.john1701a.com. Welcome to PriusOnline and best wishes for a fast delivery.
Moo :)

Well excuse me! I ordered Nov 15 and stand #30 at a local dealer with possible delivery in March! Buck up lad. :D

In my experience there are only two good websites concerning the Prius, this one at priusonline which is a bit thin but still very useful and the one(s) over at Yahoo.

The Yahoo ones do have commercials and a bit of yelling and occasional ad homs (including a couple by waskibert aka me) but still contain a lot of useful info.

If you are into the technical end of things I highly recommend this site:

plus, as mentioned, http://www.john1701a.com./ is a very good site.

Wanna bet which of us gets their Prius first? :)

There's a pretty good discussion group going on at the Edmunds website titled Prius 2004+. I've gotten some good info there and John1701a is participating quite a bit also. He's got a lot of good info to share.

I'm driving the exact object of your desire, a Black pkg 9!
It's worth waiting for!
BTW BMW's Mini division has a secret internal program that I'll reveal here:
MWF.
Make
Waiting
Fun!
Emails, small unique gifts, etc. This is one of two BMW ideas Toyota should employ! ( The other is curbside mirror tilting downward in reverse).

I also found http://www.priuschat.com - another discussion forum for Prius enthusiasts.

Their forums seem to be more focused and organized, and they have many additional features like: (taken from the main page)

Email digests like Yahoo - get a daily or weekly dose of what's going on in the various Priuschat forums.
Photo Album - every Member has their own personal Photo Album and can also contribute to the public Albums with an easy to use upload interface.
Enhanced Search - Search Priuschat.com or Google, all from our main page!
Quick Reply - now you can use Quick Reply to reply to a thread without having to hit the "Post" button, wait for another page to load, etc.

I just found it the other day and like it a lot so far. Has everything that Yahoo is good at but without the ads and stuff.
