Any idea where to get parts for a Smart Roadster in U.S. or Mexico?

Even more interesting question, why would you need Roadster parts in the U.S.? Do you have one?

Second the question from Oliver B! Also depends a bit what type of parts you're after, ie 'standard' or upgraded? Anyway some links to study would be:
www.berlin-tuning.com
www.evilution.co.uk (not a part supplier but loads of useful information/links)
Generally ebay turns up standard spares fairly reliably eg I just bought a replacement MAP sensor from Bulgaria (Nadia autoparts I think it was), & an IAT sensor from Germany. - helps to have the model Nr written on the old / broken part to speed the ebay search. Regards Rob

I am still thinking about importing a Roadster as a rolling chassis (not subject to FMVSS) and putting a US engine, gearbox and electronics into it. The delay in deciding on that project is because of a Lotus Turbo Esprit project that is taking about a year longer to finish than expected (which is kinda OK since early Esprit prices have shot up in the last year).

I have another car that wasn't brought into the US and I get parts for it direct from Europe.

Nope. Making a roadster and like what the body looks like.
