my smart

I signed up for a blue cabrio with silver trim, but I may change to yellow with black if I can. Currently drive an 02 BMW Z3.

I ordered a blue Cabrio with black body and live in WA... I have heard rumors that LA will be one of the first geo area to get the smart because of the high number of reservations... Does anyone know where else might be early in their deliveries?

I have yet to see the beige interior... have you seen it in person? Every car I have seen so far has either dark or red interior

Smartcar, no I have not seen the beige interior in person, only on their website. I was figuring that going with beige would give me the most versatility if I want to change body panel colors. Beige should go with just about every other color.

I don't think we actually "ordered" anything.

To quote smart USA "THIS IS NOT AN OFFER TO SELL OR A PURCHASE AGREEMENT TO BUY A SMART CAR. THIS OPPORTUNITY IS FOR RETAIL CUSTOMERS ONLY. THE RETAIL PRICES OF SMART CARS HAS YET TO BE DETERMINED. YOU WILL RECEIVE AN OFFER ONLY FROM AN AUTHORIZED smart USA DEALER. "

That said, I reserved a Passion, black tridion, red body panels, red interior.
My Prius needs a baby sister.

my 2003 Blue Cabrio

I have a 2003 Passion with nearly 15,000 miles and I still love it. It is an absolute pleasure to drive and surprises many sports car owners with its power and handling. One problem I have is that the factory wheels seem very subceptible to damage from potholes and uneven road surfaces. I have bent 6 rims in the last year. One was actually cracked so it couldn't be straightened. Do others have similar problems or have you found aftermarket wheels in the US? I have found one place that can straighten wheels for the SMART. http://www.rimandwheelworks.com/ They do great work and have had a special plate made to handle the 3 lug wheel. Have others run into this problem?
