I placed my reservation on March 30 and just got the email to confirm a few minutes ago:


Dear XXXXXX,

The U.S. arrival of the 2008 smart fortwo is getting closer every day. The enthusiasm and anticipation surrounding smart has been tremendous and we would like to thank you for being an important part of it from the beginning. As one of the first customers to place a reservation, we are pleased to inform you that we may be able to deliver your smart fortwo during the first half of 2008. For this to happen, you will need to finalize your reservation by verifying or changing your model and color choices, and by adding any options that you would like. It is important that you complete this process no later than November 16, 2007 to avoid any delays in the delivery of your smart fortwo.

smart USA has created the Reservation Confirmation Program that will provide you with exclusive access to specify your smart fortwo model and colors, add factory-installed options, update your contact information, and enable you to finalize your reservation. The Program, located at http://www.mysmartfortwo.com/, will also provide you with introductory pricing for your smart fortwo model as well as any factory installed options that you choose.

Your personal username and password to access this site are as follows.

Username: xxxxxxxxxx
Password: xxxxxx

Please keep this information confidential as they are the unique ‘keys’ used to customize your smart fortwo.

You will receive an email acknowledgement of your “finalized reservation” within 24 hours. Again, please make sure that you confirm your reservation by 9pm PDT on November 16, 2007. If you fail to do so, delivery of your smart fortwo will likely be delayed. Should you decide not to confirm your reservation, you can request a full refund of your initial $99 reservation by calling 1-800-smart-USA.

This Reservation Confirmation Program is not an offer to sell or a purchase agreement to buy a smart vehicle. You will receive an official purchase agreement only from an authorized smart USA dealer as the final step prior to taking delivery of your smart fortwo.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact us at http://www.smartusa.com/contact-us.asp. Again, thank you for your continued passion and commitment to smart.



Kind regards,

Dave Schembri
President, smart USA

What do you guys think: I think I am going to change my specs from yellow w/silver T to the blue metallic, black T, and red interior. My options (in addition to paint $$$) would be definitely pod instruments, fog lamps, (maybe) premium sound system, and Brabus wheels :D

That's OK, most of the wait will be during the cold months and plus it'll give me time to save $$$. Hopefully it won't be too long of a wait.:)

Mike,

With the MINI and the Smart in the garage, what are you going to do with all the extra space?

Free Smart with the purchase of a house

To all that may be interested...with a cool $389,000 you can purchase a house in Charleston, SC and get a free Smart car compliments of Baker Motors of Charleston. I am sure a lot of you will start to bid that price up.

Put that house somewhere in the Rockies, and we might have something to talk about.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :D:D

For the record, reserved March 30th at around 9:20pm PT.
Coincidentally, I am also in CO, reserved 10 days after you (Apr 9) and got my confirmation 10 days after you (Nov 16). Maybe I'll get my car 10 days after you, too! :) How funny would THAT be? ;)

I'll let you know as soon as I hear something from the dealer.

Since I live a long way from Denver, I'll probably need to plan the trip up to collect the car. If timing works out, maybe we can meet up...
