City Flame!!!!!

We found a great deal on a City Flame with only 7k miles on it today so we traded in the 2008 cabrio with 109k for a new smart. Can't believe our luck!!

What did they give you for your 2008 cabrio with 109K on the clock?

Only $2500 but ours had a motor mount going and a problem with the catalytic converter fan so one in better condition could much better. KBB ballpark showed at $3600.

That's kind of depressing, since mine is a 2008 cabrio. But then, I plan to keep driving it until it's a problem.

Better half wants to keep this one mostly stock... We're still waiting on the other 2008 to get the valve job finished on it and I may keep that one to play with..

I was shocked at how much better mpg it got... I have a feeling the engine may have been fixing to give out in the cabrio. Oh... and GOD DO I MISS CRUISE CONTROL. LOL Dealership was 3 hours from the house... long drive.

Keep in mind your car is in much better condition than mine was. You're also much nicer to yours.... I drove my cabrio like I was impersonating an F1 driver.

Hmmm, I drive mine like a go-kart most of the time. Hey, you only live once.
My right foot is composed of plutonium.

But, I'm only a lttle over 72K
