Pretty sweet, saw them in Europe. I drove by Ray Catena the other day and I just saw they put up the 'smart' sign and I wanted to go in to take a peek. Congratulations on the car!

I saw a truck load of them on the way to Orlando on Sunday. I was wondering if anyone on here got one. I heard there was a long waiting list.

They've been in Canada for over 3 years and when it came out, a lot of the wannabe cool people started driving it. Now, the only people who drive it are delivery people, car parts courtesy cars, ad cars with company design graphics/logo on the cars, and poor people. However, all the wannabe rich people who drive 'em have Mercedes emblems on the front and back of the car! They're a real problem with losers on the street as you can flip it upside down really easily.

All in all, it's a car no one wants to drive because the interior is crap, like same as a early 90's Dodge, transmission sucks, and when they first came out, they were available only for diesel.

The Smart car is truly a chick car. No man wants to be caught dead in this car unless you have an additional manly car in your collection.

Resale value is crap too because no one wants to drive these in Canada anymore.

nice!

yeah, the dealer did everything (wheels too). the person who originally ordered it ordered these accessories and so after we picked it up, we dropped it off a few days later and they put everything in.

i thought the headunit they were putting it was aftermarket. well it is, but i dont know how they got it to show the official "smart" logo as the background. maybe theres a way you can upload pics? who knows
