On Oahu

i got my smart in march 2011. its a 2011 passion. so far im diggin it.

got it because my trusty toyota blew up. only meant to drive to and from work. and still only drive it to work and back. i have 2 kids so tough to use otherwise. intentions was to leave it alone and save gas. but i got hooked on it.

I am a custom scooter builder and full time heavy equiptment mechanic. so i had to do some custom stuff.

so far
tow hitch, tow hook, 17" genius wheels, yokohama tires, green stuff brake pads, ebc sloted rotors, tints, kenwood exelon stereo, focal seperates, jl 8" sub smartmadness box, jl xd4004 amp, and waiting for a khulfx body kit and smann drop springs.

maybe planning a turbo and coilovers later.

ALOHA

Very nice looking ride.
I see the rear tow hook on the bumper, but not the tow hitch (under the center exhaust and hidden due to angle I am guessing?)
Also, what is the object under the front? Looks like it is touching the ground midway between the front wheels? Could be a jack? (looks like there is more clearance between the wheels and fender than usual?)

Hi:

The Curt 11020 with your exhaust answered a few questions for me. I am currently running a 225/35 & 215/35 FK 451's setup for tires with Lorinser-speedies. Yokies are my next choice. Nice car bud. Thanks.
