you should probably call them to find out who helped you with your test drive. my guess is that when you order 'online', a 'brand specialist' is assigned to you by the smart center, unless you request a specific person.

we have a couple guys here at wilde jag that worked at coast cadillac for years. maybe you know some of them????
maybe, but my guess is 'no'. most of the guys i worked with should have retired before i started there! ha ha

i would hope they're still around, just not having to 'work' now......but hey, ya never know.

FYI, i was in the parts department...worked for Roger Williams who was the Parts Mgr at the time.

BTW, we're enjoying OUR weather today.....sunny and 70!!!

smartcentersarasota i have not heard of th us smarts being able to be programmed, but i am working on getting you guys a concrete answer, and possibly a solution to the concern.

we have been working with a company who deals in aftermarket acessorys for the fortwo, and i will find out if the have a module available

The USA smarts have no DRLs; Canadian smarts do. Rumor is in Europe you can have your smart center "enable" the DRL function via their computer, after which the driver can control DRL off/on. So far, no way to get "factory" DRLs for the USA, but there are aftermarket DRL modules available. The whole issue is discussed here: https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/for...hlight=daytime

smartcentersarasota smartdad-

first, 5 minutes is too long to wait for the cd changer to switch. thats deffinately something we would need to adress.

second, as long as you have the plain plastic pannels (not the red, silver or blue painted pannels) i dont see any issue with wrapping it. id just be concerned that if you wrap the painted pannels, that when it comes time to remove the wrap, that it could possibly pull the paint off. other than that, i see no reasons for concern
