The gopping Prius has been given a facelift, cleaning up those awful 'melting' lights in the process. The plug-in variant remains the looker of the range, though it's all relative, but this is definitely an improvement.

There's also good news for fans of low-speed four-wheel-drive systems. More for the North American snow belt than anything, I suspect.

It is strange how the designers have kept the corporate nose from the early 2000s on the Prius (see old Aygo, and 1st gen Auris for example). The Japanese influence over this car is far more pronounced than most of the current line up.

I thought the pre-facelift one looked quite cool. I even found the Mirai oddly appealing.


I'll get me coat.

No, it looks FUCKING HORRIBLE though it is, as Barrington says, actually very good at what it does.

It's a little short on headroom in the back IIRC, our hosts had one as a runaround at Tsutsumi.

I've ridden in the back of many and never found this to be a problem, and I'm 6'3".

It must have been my stove pipe hat that got in the way. I was sat in the middle which may make difference.

I thought it was the Mirai that had to have a chimney, in case of an oh, the humanity incident.

I got another nudge about ordering my new car today. Corollas cannot be had, not even for ready cash — but there are some STONKING deals on the facelifted Prius, which also offers FULL COW and 15" MACDROITWICH WHEELS on the top of the range.

Bob, you may need to ready yourself to be THROWN UNDER THE BUS. SORRY AND ALL THAT.

Well, maybe it's my fault, we are somewhat behind build plan and despite me saving the world on Saturday we are back in the shit. Prius is a bit Spartan inside and wacky but if I can't supply and it floats your boat I can't really complain

I'm honestly losing the will to live, Van Zyyl will shut us down at the end of this model by the looks of things. Buy what you want. I know I will when this train de-rails at Brexit junction. Additionally with the kicking I've had today, the two I'm due.tomorrow and then another on Friday, I'd retire tomorrow if I could.

Two things occur to me in this thread.

1) Is Bob REALLY trying to blame Brexit for his inability to build a car on time?

2) If Seamaster REALLY wanted to buy a Corolla, he could just go to a dealer and order one rather than wait for it to appear on the Buzby list of free wank.

Of course, the reason you've already got 'em is because Kiwi Corollas come from JAPLAND where those INDUSTRIOUS LITTLE YELLOW MEN just GET ON WITH IT instead of SHITTING IN GLOVEBOXES, BETRAYING THE NATION and BLAMING EVERY DAMN THING ON BREXIT.

ALWAYS. I love Bob, but he has been on an EIGHT YEAR MISSION to LET ME DOWN BADLY.

In other news, Bob, you may or may not be pleased to hear that a bloke who works for me who sadly has to buy cars with his own money went to his local Bob emporium at the weekend intending to test drive and order a Corolla Excel 2.0 HSD Tourer. But YOU COULDN'T HELP HIM, could you?

He's ordered a RAV4 HSD instead.

To pour more poop on us Teh Frenchies are working to rule at Calais. We ran out of certain parts today. I'm exhausted sorting SNAFU out for the last 3 months. I had to advise production control what to do today as most of them are still in nappies. I also have to present to the board of Directors tomorrow about a fuel hose found disconnected at a dealer. 2 days work for a 5 minute kicking. I know full well some pikey at the dealer has tried to steal petrol but I'm not allowed to say that

Bob, can you place these in order of quality control:

JAPIES BOB
BREXIT BOB
VICHY BOB
ISLAMOFASCIST BOB

I have taken a stab at it.
