New as in "new to me" heh. On Friday, I picked up a 2011 Smart Cabrio with 18K miles. I am absolutely LOVING it. The only thing I wish is that the driver's seat pushed back as far as the passenger one... if I could get the driver's seat to push back one more "click" it'd be perfect.

Anyhow, say hello to Farva. Can't wait for the weather to warm up a bit to take it out for a topless spin.

VERY NICE!!! And welcome! :D

Fun Fact: The seats are offset like that to allow for more shoulder room. :)

P.S. You have a very early 2011, one with a build date in 2010. Ask how I know. :wink:

Thanks NCC. No, I'm in Boston. It's just started to thaw out here. Nice today, 56F.
56° is fine for topless driving (IMO). I'm good down to 50, with the heated seats on. On the other hand, 75° is about my maximum when it's bright and sunny outside. Although, I have done 80 with the A/C running. But, that just seems silly so I don't do it much, LOL.

Different strokes, I know. Enjoy the new ride in any case.

How do you know! :) And does that mean anything I should know about?
The 2011- models have body coloured lower valences.

However, there is an exception to that rule. The first run of 2011s with build dates in 2010 have matte black lower valences (side skirts and lower bumpers). :)

Ahh! Good eye! I never knew that, but I just checked google images for 2011 smarts and you're totally right!

They also got the chrome package as "compensation" for not having the painted lower valances.

:welcome: to SCoA! :)
