Well, tomorrow is the day. I'm getting my muffler replaced (it's got a leak at the base of the flex joint) at the local Volkswagen dealer. I bought the muffler myself and am letting them put it on. I have done extensive research on this and I know, I know I should probably do it myself, but they do have a lift that fits the smart and they want $110 to do it. I hope they will let me watch. They did let me see while it was up on the lift where the leak was. I just hope they don't screw up removing the sensors, stuff like that. Course they will have to correct that, but I just want a clean in and out with an new muffler. If they do, I'll buy the whole crew pizza for lunch.
