I recently took delivery of my new 2006 White, package #7 4 original
miles Prius.

When I got to looking around I found a bag in the bottom of my console
with two plugs.  On the bag it says they are supposed to be
installed...Where do they go?

Your dealer, as part of the delivery preparation, was supposed to
install them in the body underneath the car, to keep water/mud from
getting up in there.  The holes are open in delivery because they are
used as transport tie-down points.

If you really wanted to, you could install them yourself, but the photo
I've seen is a little confusing if it's behind the front tire or in
front of the rear tire...

then again, if your dealer forgot to install the plugs in prep, what
else was forgotten?  you might want to go back to your dealer and
complain, and have them install it.  Also ask them for their copy of
the dealer prep list.  as seen in this Prius pick-up checklist for new
owners:  http://www.vfaq.net/docs/pickup_checklist.html

Well I went by the dealer, and the service manager was like "I wish
they would throw those away".  Seems that the prep guys on the dock pop
plugs in after they are unloaded.  I saw them and they are installed.
The ones in my console are put there on the assembly line.

I wasn't the first one at my dealer to ask, I can't believe somebody
here hadn't gotten the same answer.

Love the car by the way.  Owner's Manual leaves a lot to be desired in
the organization department.
