looking at the picture, your smart seem to have a clear interior and rims (what is the exact color of the interior?). For starters, the Pure come with cloth seats and steel wheels.

BTW my smart has the same color combination.

What does the oval emblem affixed to the triangle in front of the L/R rear view mirror say?

Hmmm, the date doesn't conflict with a couple of other events that I have planned, for a change. Interested.

At first the dealership thought it was the shift motor but it turned out to be the shift module. The tech also found a bad front right strut assembly, 3 compressed motor mounts and 2 worn rear tires. Lots of other small parts involved as well . Originally the total was $2474.58 but they took some offf or customer loyalty.

More bad news came in the form of my wife's hip replacement surgery scheduled for Feb 8. She went in for her final checkoff before the surgery and she's in affibrillation so she need's a cardiologist's approval before the surgery something we don't see happening any time soon. Last time this happened they had to stop and restart her heart to clear it. Her surgeon, we're retired military, is an Air Force doctor, is due to be transferred soon so we might need to find her a new surgeon as well. So, we might not make the 'Dragon for this reason as well.
Our best to your bride Art .......... (just saw this)

Let's see, Rover needs new right strut- replaced, Elaine needs new left hip-replaced. Rover needs new left strut -traded it in, Elaine needs a new right hip-??? Would have spent over $3000 on 8 year old car in 2 months, I don't think so.

New smart 2016 silver passion with $2k USAA discount and $1k customer loyalty discount now sits in the drive.

Too cool!

Now Elaine will be riding in style when you drive her up to the medical center for that hip upgrade!
