It is correct English.

Once you have smart entry and smart start, you'll learn very quickly to
like it.

That's exactly what Bill said!
Do, maybe I take the more expensive version....
Unless installing the cc can be done for, let's say, about 500 dollar?

The 2 parts lists that I have posted show prices of 103-123 euros,
excluding VAT.  You'll probably have to pay more than that for labor,
especially if you have your dealer install it for warranty purposes.

Depends if you really want/need the other options.

I don't know if your basic audio system has the aux-input jack or not,
for example (basic US 2006 Prius does not, but any upgrade option
packages does have it).  The upgraded audio isn't all that it is
cracked up to be.  You can add a 6-CD in-dash changer to the base unit
(giving you a 7CD capability) if you want the added capability, and
based on the CD options in Europe for the Classic Prius there's
probably a few other 10 or more CD units that may also work (in center
console or in boot).  The extra speakers/amplifier cannot be added
later, though.

Unless you drive in fog often, the front fog lights probably aren't
worth it.  Sadly, they can only be replaced by the dealer (according to
a US owner's manual, anyways),  They can be pricy, and are prone to
getting cracked by rock chips.  The factory front fog lights cannot be
added after delivery.

Smart Entry and Smart Start/SE&SS/Smart Key System/SKS is really a neat
feature once you have it.  No more reaching in your pocket or purse or
bags for your keys to lock/unlock the doors or placing a key into the
dash to start the car.  Can you live without it?  Sure, but once you
have it you wish that the doors to your home, office/work, other
vehichles, etc. all did the same thing...  You cannot add it to your
car later.

Le 07/17/2006 03:03 PM, Carpe Diem nous fit lire :

What about crossing the Belgium-France border (and loosing the free
5-year maintenance...), to get a Linea Sol (has 1, no 2, no 3, no 4,
no GPS either) ?

What about http://prius-touring-club.com/lesite/acceuil/index.html
they are planning a meeting for beginning of September, in Namur!

I that case, I prefer to buy the more expensive version (suppl. of 1500
euro) and have ALL the extras, including cc AND including my 5 year free
