New smart owner here from Charleston, SC. 2012 pure, metallic grey/black. Only about 1,200 miles on the clock so far, but lovin' this little car. I just want to take the opportunity to thank everyone here for the treasure trove of valuable information. Using the search feature, I've been able to find answers to all my questions about the car and the mods I've been working on. Can't post any pictures yet, but I did post some in my garage. I still can't believe the amount of attention this little car gets!
Welcome to the forum and yes this little car will get attention everywhere it goes. Heck, even someone else's Smart gets my attention and i have owned mine for 3 and a half years going to the fourth by this July. Oh yes beware of paparazzi's with cel phone cameras.
One guy took a photo of me in my Smart the day after a huge snowstorm and half the streets were still snow packed. He wanted to commend me for my bravery.
It really is very good in the snow.
