I took a look of the Smart Car in person. It's so weird it's cool. They make it almost like a cell phone... swapping body panels and all.

Cool, I drive one for 3 years now love it.
Gets too much attention at times particularly when I have my PPG strapped to the back of it.

Well if you ran out of gas in the Smart and had that on the back.....I think you could make it to the next filling station....

That thing looks crazy with the PPG strapped to the back of it ! I agree they get way too much attention, especially for the price but it does make the car fun to drive because sometimes you forget why in the heck people are looking at you and pointing. I drove it on the 2 hour trip to my BMW dealer to test drive the 135 and pay for mine. It was such a blast to go from 70hp and 68tq up to 300hp (330?) and 300tq !!

I placed a deposit online back in Nov 2007 however, after they went on sale I just gave my local dealer my name and said call me if you get one in and the people who ordered it turn it down (these are called Orphans). I happened to stop by the dealer about a month ago and jokingly asked if they had any orphand and they said we did, let us check to make sure. Turns out they did have one and I bought it that day, I recently had advertising applied for my law practice.

They need to get those Brabus Smarts with the turbo engines over here stat. I'd be down for one if they did that and improved the transmissions in those things.

I'd hate to get in an accident with one. Doesn't look like there's much protection from a head on, side or rear impact.

I'd love to have a Smart, but the asking price is just a little too much for me to justify it right now. Obviously it's reasonable to a lot of people though, because there's a waiting list for them. Maybe in a few years when the price comes down I'll snag one.

You see thousands of them in big cities in Europe. The price isn't too bad here but the low cost of running due to exemption from congestion charges, minimal or no tax, and low fuel consumption make them very popular.

Also, have you tried parking in Paris?
