Steve, you must've been reading opinions somewhere other than this thread, LOL.

They will probably do what looks good to them - that's their job.

How many 451s did smart sell in the US? Last numbers I saw were about 86,000. How long will it take smart to sell that many 453s?

It will probably be quite a few years until the 453 has even half the presence of the 451. Meanwhile as the 451s age and need work those owners will reach out for help and visit this site. 453 owners can reach out to Mercedes for a good four years for most of their problems.

I don't think it will be difficult to adjust the new banner to be more comprehensive of American smart enthusiasts. 453 is well represented with two models on the left (where most people look first when reading). Replace the forfour with a 451 and the smaller 451 convertible with a 450.

Exactly. And it's not SCoA's job to promote any particular model over the others. SCoA isn't selling cars.

For me, I have to admit that the present banner used is seldom looked at by me at all when I view the site. I have no clue as to which Smarts are on it or not as I skip right by it and go directly to the posts, instead. Out of sheer curiosity, I finally took the time to look at it a bit longer though. Nice banner, but the cars shown are not my particular favorite as to color. I bet I am not the only one who has done this though. A new banner may be wonderful, but I am doubtful I'll be carefully inspecting it any more than I did the older version.

you should definitely keep the forfour in the banner, it could happen. otherwise, I think the design is too busy. compare with how clean and simple the smartusainsider banner is.

A natural progression or evolution of the Smart is the way to go. Show the 450, since it was the first and is in North America, then a 451 and finally the 453 in both versions since it is the current and rising star. IMHO. I approved this post.

Of course if a 451 ED version was to sneak it's way in there, I would not be upset.

I think, you ought switch out the forfour, for a 450. Since the forfour isn't sold here. Seems like you under playing the 451 too. Very small image.
