Welcome to the forums, and welcome to the life of owning a smart car.
I always tell people, if you want attention in your car and you want people to look at you, drive a supercar or a smart car - they both get the same amount of attention, just probably not the same kind.

You have a better chance of finding a single, never married, no kids, 52 year old cougar than finding a 'good' and 'trusted' mechanic anywhere, especially for these kinds of cars. 90% of shops don't know how to work on them.
Very quickly you'll realize that you have to sort of do a lot of the stuff yourself.

I'd suggest a subscription to Evilution - Smart Car Encyclopaedia - It's like $20 usd/yr and they pretty much have step by step instructions on MOST smart car installs/fixes. I've had a subscription with them for a little over two months now and I've already got my moneys worth 20x over.
