I just got back from my 10k mile tuneup. The guy that works there is so in the know about everything that is about to happen with Smart that him and I sat down and discussed everything coming up since I told him I was going to put aftermarket parts on my car. He informed me that Smart is going to come out with five new engines for the Smart. 3 3 cylinder and 2 4 cylinder engines. Also, an all electric car and a hybrid will be released with the engine upgrades. Everything will be released to the community by Summer of next year. Smart is going to partner with the company Smart Madness and offer factory upgrades. This means that you will be able to walk into your Smart authorized service center and ask for an engine upgrade to a 4 cylinder engine or a stage 4 turbo option and they will do it for you as a factory aftermarket upgrade. Also, he informed me that since this means that this will mass produce all the parts for the Smart car, likely, the prices are going to go down for the aftermarket parts. One last thing, Renault has teamed up with Smart car and is going to offer a 2011 Smart custom four seater for the United States market. If I recollect correctly, Renault is going to build all of the three and four cylinder upgrades for the Smart car. I hope you all enjoy this news as much as possible as now I am not going to buy aftermarket until Smart partners with Smart madness.
