smart and mini dealer?

Does anyone know of a Smart dealer that is also a Mini Cooper dealer? Maybe not the same location, but the same dealer group if nothing else. Thank you.

As far as I know, all the smart centers are aligned with M-B dealerships now.

The Herb Chambers Company in Boston has two smart stores and at least one Mini store that I remember.

Certainly, an auto group can own many different brand stores, but to my knowledge all smart centers are located with M-B dealerships. The two Boston area smart centers are located with two of Herb Chambers' five (!) M-B stores.

Ah, same dealer group - that's a different question. See replies below, etc.

In Louisville the MB/Smart dealer - Taffel Motors (4156 Shelbyville Road) - is next door to the Mini of Louisville (4170 Shelbyville Road) and they are both owned by the same company. Shelbyville Road is one of the major thoroughfares in Louisville...

Knauz Auto Group in Lake Bluff sells smarts, BMWs, MBs, MINIs, Jaguars, Hyundais, Land Rover, and an entire classics dealer.

Unfortunately they don't have a smart sales team though so anyone selling you a smart will actually be a Hyundai salesperson.

At one point in Minnesota the BMW dealer was 0.4 miles away from the Smart Center. Not the same group though.
