My new little friend has finally arrived!!! She’s all dolled up now! I know it’s an older car and seen one seen em all right? But she’s new to me and I’m very happy that I found her! 😃 Of course I had to add a few things to her too!! 😊 Beware of picture flooding!! 😂 ( I do not know why the rear fender on the driver side is gray 🤷🏻‍♀️ Everything looks good and lines up perfectly and nothing looks to lead me to think of it getting smashed or something ) 😬

Looks mint! I notice though that the chicken head logo on the front and the smart insignia on the liftgate are missing. Nothing major.

Thank you! Yes they are missing I removed them. To me it’s cleaner without emblems. 🤷🏻‍♀️😊

2011, I assume? Good find! I see the previous owner also stuck something in the door to prevent it from making contact and rubbing on the tridion cell. My 2012 used to do that after I had the dealership tighten up the doors. They were like "either you're going to get wind noise or rubbing on the cell, your choice". I placed thick furniture felt pads onto the doors and boom, no more rubbing.

If it is a 2011, and the interior looks correct, the lower valences would have been body color originally...:)

Here's the answer: All 2011 models built before November 2010 will have the Chrome Package in place of matching lower valences (the grey side skirts, front and rear lower valences).

Yes you are correct! It’s a 2011 with 33k on it. I added the jam handles and the door sill protectors.

Someone obviously replaced the left rear fender with a silver one from another car. It should be blue like the other side. The only silver is the tridion.

Look like the one rear fender, is a silver one. The old owner must have replaced a damage one. Couldn’t find a light blue fender. I curious what this is, on the door edge?

Those are called Jam handles. So instead on putting your hands on the door to close it you put your fingers in those holes and push it closed.

Looking good! Congrats, Penny!! Those floor mats are next level. lol
Thanks!! Yours is a beauty too!! Lol originally I ordered the weather tech rubber mats from auto anything but got an email saying it was no longer available so I ended up getting those which are introtech hexagon rubber mats. They had good reviews so I just bit the bullet and went with those. I like the look of weather techs but I had no other choice! 🤷🏻‍♀️
