Hello friends,  Just joined. Looking for tech help. I got a 08 Passion and I'm upgrading it to a Babus/French Mbz K-451 Pics to come soon. I'm in the Ole Pueblo in Tucson AZ.

owned mine since june and it is a fun car to drive. I would drive this car anywhere and have gone on some rough roads. Mine is a 2011 pure with a #88 nascar skinit package. I go to many shows and cruise-ins with it.

Congrats Beverly and welcome! My wife wants to get rid of her Honda Fit now too so she can get a Smart. They are so much fun!

hello!  Just purchased my first Smart in October.  She's a 2012 Passion Coupe.  Can't get over how much fun it is to drive!  Now, my husband wants one of his own.

Just purchased a 2008 Passion with 22K miles, silver and black.  LOVE IT!  Sold my Prius to get this 1800 lb dinghy for our new RV.  Have been researching the towing aspects.  I have the Blue Ox Adventa LX tow bar on my Tiffin 28 BR.  I want to use the towing padeyes on the front to tow it and not blemish the front end with a base plate. Seems like the Europeans have been using the padeyes for years without incident. Can anyone confirm they have married the Blue Ox with the padeyes successfully?  Any special considerations other than getting another padeye and cutting a hole through the bumper?  I understand the smart car can be flat towed without problems, using a bungie cord on the wheel and light hook up.  What about the new Roadmaster 8700 brake asssist on a smartie? Thanks!

Sweet, just bought a Blue 2009 Smart ForTwo Passion Coupe with 18k miles on it!! My dad has a Yellow 2008 Smart ForTwo Passion Convertible.  What can I say? It runs in the family.  The one I bought has a bunch of custom looking stuff done to it, like a custom air intake and custom exhaust.  It sounds pretty grumbly.  I'm pretty excited about my new Smart!!

My Smart Car has a small place damaged on the front hood..... Does anyone know how I can get a replacement hood? It seems simple enough to change.....
