Cool

Thanks for the update, glad you're happy with the vehicle, it looks great! I really like the looks of the Nutmeg interior in combination with the black seat trim, dash trim and carpeting and hope that my Ruby Flare comes through with the Nutmeg interior as ordered.

Definitely looking forward to your impressions of the adaptive headlights as I haven't been able to test drive a RAV4 that was equipped with them, although the Camry I drove with them was encouraging.

Keep us updated as you get more time behind the wheel.

So what do you think of the Blueprint color? Do you like it more than you thought you would.

It very dark in the shade so you see the true beauty of it unless it is in the sun. In the sun, the flake in the paint really show. The wife preferred the blueprint over the pearl white which was my first choice.

Update - So last night we had a chance to test out the new adaptive headlights! When they first come on, they do a little self adjusting dance.....moving up and down. I noticed this against my garage door while parked. I had a Mini Cooper S that had self leveling xenon lights that did the same thing.

The performance of the headlights was fantastic! The turning with the direction of the steering wheel was pretty slick and it greatly helped with visibility. I tested them on a 25 mile trip on rural highways without any street lights or reflectors on the majority of the road surface. They did a real good job of adjusting while going up and down the rolling hills and curves. Very impressed with the light output and we even got some rain on the trip as well. The auto wipers along with the great headlights allowed me to focus more on the road.

Night driving for my wife has always been a challenge but she was impressed with the light output from the passenger seat and said she doesnít think she would have any issues while driving.

Yes, they were worth it!

Yup exactly, seeing them here at our dealership itís a very very dark blue that could almost look black at a glance but in the sun the color really pops with the metallic flakes. I prefer the Pearl White as well with the contrasting black trim pieces looks awesome.

Sounds like my old “Patriot Blue” Jeep Wrangler TJ. It was super dark blue, almost black, but in bright sunlight there was a brilliant light blue shine from the flake. Wasn’t thrilled with the colour when I bought but once summer showed up I loved it.

I've test-driven both versions and the pano is cool, makes it really bright and airy, especially in the rear seats, but I do think the effect is diminished by the large bar that divides the two sections (opening and fixed) halfway back. I'm sure this has been done to strengthen the roof for IIHS test, and it seems like a good and necessary safety feature, but it does seriously cut down on the "pano" in panoramic.

Hi Tanakao! Mind if I ask what city in Canada you are located? I just placed an order for the XSE from a dealer in Toronto and am eagerly waiting to hear when it should be arriving.
