smartsalesman Happy New Year everybody. Just a note - If you have ordered a smart and would like to speed up your delivery time, we may have an orphan exactly how you ordered yours or pretty close to it. So give me (Todd) a call and I'll let you know what we have. 818 762-7875

Sunnyhere I'm looking for a SoCal dealership for delivery of my Smart. So far, it seems SC Universal City has the best rep.

piglith Great that is exactly what I need and for what I'm planing will work just fine.

OK I will be putting in a CarPC that I have in to the car. I need the measurements to determine a monitor size that would be in place of the two interments with virtual digital insterments display in the monitor. The PC is will drive two monitors one in the dash in place of the stereo location and the other I'm hoping to get an actual high res VGA touchscreen that will fit instead of the standard 7" video displays where the two instruments would be. I don't want to put too big of a monitor that would obstruct the windshild.

With behind the seats ,the PC is already done. Just needed to know if the mobile case and stereo amplifiers I have it in will actualy fit behind the seats or in that rear tailgate. The PC does full GPS, Stereo, DVD, WiFi and cellular networking, night backup camera and ECU diagnostics.

As far as the floor board I just trying to find out If I have to pull up material that is glued down and clean glue becaue I am going to Dynamat the entire interior and I need to get down to bare body/floor board to attach the Dynamat material. Then I will cover back up with what ever is used rubber, carpet etc.....

I'm hoping to do most of this stuff "Stelth" with out having to go to too much modification as like the Yellow Al&Ed's Stereo car here.

The car is going to be sponsored theme car. I also need to find someone who can take a high res photo and make a wrap for me.

Measurements

William, these are some unusual requests but I will humor you any way.

Each instrument is 3.175 inches wide and 4.175 inches high and installed 1.625 inches apart and there are approximately 2 inches on the long side of the vertcal measurement between instruments and windshield.
Floor space behind driver seat is 8 inches from seat to rear direction and 12 inches wide and then 8 inches on slant up towards rear storage area.
What's under carpet? It shouldn't matter if you're ripping it up but I couldn't tell you without me ripping it up to check (not doing that).
Safety kit is not available in the U.S. but the inside storage area on the rear door measures 35 inches X 9 inches. By the way, you can purchase the contents of the safety kit inividually but not the kit itself.
Now that I'm done measuring, my coworkers want to know why I am measuring the clusters. So tell me, why am I? Are you customzing the dash in some way?

You are the closest dealer to me and I'm still some 60 Miles away. I was wondering if you were offering any Third Party Accessories IE BRABUS, Lorinser, or S-MANN? Also I am defiantly planing some alloy rims.

I also need some measurements of a few area with the Smart Coup.
If someone or you guys could whip out a tape measurements and post back it would be greatly appreciated.

What is the hight of the Tach/Clock from the top of the dash to the top of the gage. The width of the two gauges mounted from left edge to right edge. Distance from top of gauge to windshield in vertical measurement.

The area behind the seats at the floor board (For stereo amp etc). There are some mentions of people mounting amps right behind the seats but not in the cargo area.

The FirstAid/Safty Kit option What size is its outer dimensions before installation into the tailgate. That space could be used for amps/other.

What is on the floorboard? Once I get the Smart I will be pulling everything out and DynaMat the entire car. Is there rubber or any kind of padding that will need to be pulled up? Is it glued?


Thanks
I will be looking forward to meeting with you when my number comes up.

cmjars Universal Smart Center is where I got my Orphan and found an a rare car buying experience.

I can't say enough nice things about Anna, Todd, Adam and the Amazing Parts Department "Elizabeth". She finds things for my Smart that others can't.

I take my boys to see the "Gang" and their favorite Display Cars the Yellow & Blue ones are big hits. They have gone out of their way to make me feel special and my family.

They are worth the trip to visit If you are not on their Orphan List get on it!

Best to the "Gang" at Universal Smart Center.

smartie yank We had a great visit with Adam and Todd yesterday afternoon and let them take a good look at our little oil burner, Adam even took it for a little spin. Then we wandered over to take a look at the goodies and Elizabeth was very helpful in seeing that we left several of our Washington dollars there. Truly a great visit with a wonderful crew.

ex300SRT8 I recall it was somewhere in the vicinity of 250 - 300 dollars. I'll have to look for the exact amount. Sorry I don't have it handy at this second. Yeah, Elizabeth (and all the crew there for that matter) is awesome!

I was offered a ride back and forth to the dealer, even for the short (2 hour) time the work needed to be done. Plus we drove back and forth in a cabriolet with the top down . . . and it was a perfect day for it.

In summary, my love affair with this car and this entire experience continues. Yes the product is awesome, but this is easily the best dealership I've ever had the pleasure of buying from. Thanks Universal!

If you don't mind me asking what was the total damage, parts and installation?

BTW, Elizabeth in parts ROCKS!
