race911 I wanted to bring this back up to the top, because I just stumbled across this "magazine" today (referral from another list on the current issue). So I thought maybe they reviewed the smart. With apprehension, I went searching. Probably the most honest review of the car I've seen.

Not to worry; there are numerous previous comments about how red is red and is it orange not red, etc. Some like it, some don't. I've got a blue car with orange/red interior requested - can't wait to see what that looks like.

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

kmeinhold 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.

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.
