The headlights are already on - daytime running lights.  I do wish the
tailights also came on w/ the daytimes... The full headlights - &
tailights - kick in by themselves in really bad (darkish/stormy) weather in
the daytime.

 I also

Because... if it's a brightly lit parking lot where car is being started &
then one drives down brightly lit streets, may not realize that lights
aren't on - one can see fine.

Thanks so much....

Be warned that not all regions order all packages.  If there's a
specific option package that you want, be sure to use the "build and
price your Prius" option off of http://www.toyota.com/prius  to see if
it is available in your region.  Otherwise, try some ZIP codes of areas
that you're willing to go to, and see if the package that you want is
available.  It is very rare for a dealer to have enough clout with
regional to special-order a package for you.

yeah, forgot about that.  the rear wiper wasn't standard in 2004, was
standard in 2005.  but unless you special-ordered the 2004, nearly all
regions offered the 2004 with at least package 1 RW with the rear wiper
as their "base Prius."  About the only 2004s without the rear wiper
that I've heard of are ones that were purchased used from a car rental

ALL North American Prius (2001-current) have the auto-off headlights.

Then again, I never found the IRS publications or news reports to be
that confusing...

Do you own a home or condo, or do you rent?

Huh??  I own a house.  Why?
