We tow our Smart with Blue Ox you can check out some of our pictures@ http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/gallery/browseimages.php?c=18&userid=16263
I installed the Blue Ox base plate BX 1983 using two floor jacks to support the car. (See pictures)
I have not installed the BX 8848 4 Diode wiring kit yet, we use a LED wireless light bar that uses suckion cups to hold it to the roof.
We also use a Blue Ox KarGard BX 8871 to protect the car. This is the 3rd car we have used it on. (See Picture)
We have towed our car almost 1400 miles so far, we have not had our door locks to lock and we have NOT added any miles to our speedo either.
I did the install in our driveway at our Port in Titusville, FL. (I also did the Honda Element in the one picture when it was new.)
I work for SunCoast RV a chain of RV Dealerships, I was asked to move to the new Calera, AL store a several of weeks ago. So if you are in the greater Birmingham, AL area and want to tow your Smart drop me a note and I can explain how you can use Blue Ox or Road Master to do so. If you are handy and can follow directions their is no reason why you can not install it yourself.
If you have any questions let me know.
