About 3 1/2 years ago, i put down a deposit on both the MINI con and the Smart Roadster.(A wait of over a year for both.) The roadster came out about 10 months before the MINI con but unfortunatly for smart, they forgot all about my deposit and were selling them to people for about 2 months, which was annoying. i rang them asking why they had not contacted me, and they gave me one to use, specced to the eyeballs. I did enjoy the smart but IMHO, it was not anywhere near as good, to use or look at, as the MINI con. I am very glad i made the decision i did. I did, last year, buy my wife (soon to be ex) a smart car convertible, (which is the 2 seater city type bubble car, not to get mixed up with the smart roadster, which is the 2 seater, old english style, sports looking car.) which is a great little car but the gear box is very slow to engage. Unfortunately i am now selling both cars due to the divorce (on this site and a smart site.) All 3 models i mentioned above are totally different cars but what i would call, modern, quite cheap, good time cars. P.S. Feel free to check out my MCC for sale in the for sale section
TOP OFF AT LAST. (Everybody be cool, you, be cool.)
I hate those Smart things. Around here, we just have one model. I don't know what it's called, but it looks like a golf cart. Normally, I would just look it up, but I don't like them enough to bother.
I hear that people have been tipping them around here. A very mean thing to do to someone's car. A mean thing to do to a cow too. Regardless, I almost feel like laughing at the thought of a Smart just flopping over dead, like in a cartoon.
