The photos make me wish I had ordered a red roadster.

I assume you meant cabrio? When I originally reserved on 10/1 (Stooopid) I put in for a red cabrio with silver and beige interior. Since the reds (Exterior versus interior) clash (IMHO) the photo with the beige interior looks good. My only challenge will be to add the auto lights and rain sensor as dealer installed since I don't want black interior with leather nor power steering.

your right - cabrio. Red/Tan is a nice combo - the only drawback is that convertible interiors (in my experience) tend to dirty much faster. Agree the red on red would probably not match.

I happen to like the smart red very much, but then I have a Pimento red TR6, which looks like nearly exact same color. I couldn't have two cars the same color.

Well balanced critique. I'm headed to the
dealership tomorrow to snoop around.

Just an FYI ... I dont think the exterior red (orange) color of the new smart nor the red (orange) interior clash in real life - they are very similar but the car is far more orange than it is red - especially in bright light as the metal-flake in the metalic paint is orange.

oh oh sorry - but hey - they call it metalic red - its metalic all right but it sure isn't red ... red is a fire truck - the smart red is a ripe tomato ... i put a photo of the color on CsC on my review to show it ... that is the exact color ... but the tan interior is great!
