Can Bluetooth be somehow obtained in a "7" option or lower or must one have
and 8 or 9 option ?

Bluetooth is available only with the Navigation system.  It's integrated
with the microphone that's in the nav system.

Motorola, and probably other companies, makes bluetooth car modules; you
might want to try one of those.

Please note that the option list for the US 2005 Prius is much shorter
(6 instead of 9),
so it's better to use the option codes than the numbers...

Anyhow, the Bluetooth option is integrated with the Navigation system
on the 2004 (and later) Prius.  So, you'd have to find a package with
the Navigation system.  That's solely packages BG (2004 US option #8)
package BC (2004 US option #9, 2005 US option #6).

Are there any significant differences between the 2004 and 2005 Priuses?
I've been recommended to pre order a 2004 model now for delivery early next
year and I'd hate to think I was buying an inferior model.

The only differences are the packaging of options; instead of nine
option packages, there will be six.  There is a possibility of some
color changes during the mid model year.  Oh, and a mild price
increase--about 2%.

But if you haven't ordered the car yet, you're sure to get a 2005;
anyone who isn't taking delivery within the next month or so will most
likely get a 2005.
