Q & A questions for Mr. Dave Schembri at the Midwest Rally

I'd like to get an idea of what everyone thought would be an intriguing question for Mr. Schembri at the Midwest rally at the Dells. Since we won't have a ton of time with him we'll have to limit the amount of questions we can ask. Copy and paste the existing questions from the previous post then add another question to it if you like,for example, as in post #2 or, if you agree with any of the previously posted questions and want to add your vote but do not want to add a question, copy and paste the previously posted questions but only change the number at the end of the question to add your vote. If you're adding a question, don't forget to add your vote to the end of your question and add votes to the others if you desire. I'll throw out the first one I'm sure that everyone is itching to hear.

1) Will Smart ever add the Yellow panels back in the lineup??? 1 vote

Remember, copy the questions in the previous post then paste and add a question and/or vote. I will just add another question.

1) Will Smart ever add the Yellow panels back in the lineup? 1 vote
2) Will we see better warranties that fall in line with all the other manufacturers in the industry? 1 vote

When, if ever, will we get a diesel smart?
When is the mhd smart coming?
When is a turbo (or better, a turbo diesel) smart coming?
Is there a final fix for the gearshift problems (stuck in P, can't find R, etc.)?
Will smart offer other wheel/tire options?
Factory cruise control rumor - true or false?

Forgot this one:

When will we get a fix for the 09 gas gauge problem (registering 7/8 when filled)?

I vote for #4.When it is time for Pea2so to retire I would like an ultra high mileage replacement.
(I made the diesel ?#4)

I'll second these and add them below with a couple modifications...

1) Will Smart ever add the Yellow panels back in the lineup? 1 vote
2) Will we see better warranties that fall in line with all the other manufacturers in the industry? 1 vote
3) When is the earliest we will be able to reserve the smart ED?
4) When, if ever, will we get a diesel smart?
5) When, if ever, will a factory cruise control be available? How much?
6) When, if ever, will the mhd or gas turbo be available?
7) Is there a final fix for the gearshift problems (stuck in P, can't find R, etc.)?
8) Will smart offer other wheel/tire options?
9) Not really a question, but small requested factory features/changes that would make a difference: cargo area lighting, quieter purge valve, single-handed/one control release for the tailgate, upgraded trip computer for MPG and other measures, USB-port equipped Premium stereo,
Premium stereo able to read WMA files, seat-back reclining control on outside of seats, seat belt height adjusters and less finicky belts (grab too easily), variably intermittent wipers and a more 'compliant' wiper stalk control, rear hatch handle.

You'd have to expand on what you mean by a "more 'compliant' wiper stalk." It's not obvious to this casual observer.
