Congrats!

And I'll pipe up again and disagree that driving the Prius is boring vs. the 1g Insight.

Yes, the Insight is the Hypermiling Nerd's Ferarri.

But my 2004 Prius was the only automatic car I've had in a long time, and I got a real kick out of driving it. Never thought I'd ever say that about a non-stickshift. But learning how to optimise EV mode and maximizing engine off gliding at city speeds (just by playing the right foot) kept it interesting.

I completely agree with MetroMPG. Every chance I get I've been driving my wife's Prius so I can manipulate it into giving me better MPG's. It's an amazing car.
