History The car and its original owner are from Florida, but the owner and his Smart moved to New York in 2010. In the Winter of 2010/2011, the owner traded in the car at Carbone Chrysler in Yorkville, NY. I purchased the car in November of 2011 after my Saturn was rear-ended by a texting driver.
Slight window tinting, and correctly putting the hood into the slots, which they weren't in when at the dealer.

I replaced the aftermarket Jensen MP6612i with a 1-day-of-use, factory, Smart Radio 10. I also received WeatherTech floor mats for free from a former Smart owner in Rochester, NY. (Same one that sold me the $400 Rial wheels and Blizzaks tires.)

In-Car Entertainment
Back to stock.

Under the Hood
I did an oil change with Mobile 1 synthetic 0W-40 after Carbone Chrysler incorrectly put 5W-30 in the car. I also quickly burned off the regular gas they put in, and I've run Premium ever since.


Wheel and Tire
I purchased four 2-season-old Rial wheels with Bridgestone Blizzaks for $400 from a former Smart owner in Rochester, NY. (Same one that thew in the WeatherTech floor mats for free.) Also have donnyonee's dark blue lug bolt caps.
