I went to MB Winston-Salem looking for a foglight kit and installlation. They said they couldn't gey a foglight kit. The alternative was to add aBarabus twin headlight assembly for $700 +labor, even then he wasn't sure they do it. I want a functional, factory issue, installed in my Smart. Does anyone know of a parts source and someone qualified to install it? this is my wife's car and she has night blindness. Our original order was for a foglight equipped car but an orphan came available and jumped on it. Hope someone can help. Also, in regards to Larry's comment is it possible to install cruise and for how much? My wife would be in Seventh Heaven. I'm also inthe Hickort area.
Thanks, Charlie and Sue Sharrard

Anyone know of a good place to have work done like adding cruise control, in the Charlotte, or better yet, Hickory area?

Hi Scott & Fellow NC smarts!
I know back in Jan at the smart Center Cary anniversary celebration we talked about another local Spring or Summer "Meet & Greet." Admittedly, I've not organized anything beyond a smart appearance at the NCSU Earth Day celebration in Apr. Following industry RIFs this Spring, I'm overextended both at work, and after work (civic duties). I still have the voluntary email list from the Jan event, if another Triangle smart owner would like to step up and organize something local? Just let me know?
smartfully yours - Mike 5

Are there any get togethers coming up soon?

The Hudackos and I will hopefully be exhibiting our smarts at the N.C. State Earth Day celebration's Energy Fair, on Wed Apr 22, from 10a-3p on the campus "Brickyard," as examples of more eco-friendly cars (high mileage, high recyclability, lower emissions, lower production impact) Visit Apologies for not involving more local Triangle smart owners, but space was limited, and timing was short. Stay tuned for pix on my smartinsider home page.

A friend in the auto insurance biz forwarded me a news brief about a minor recall of some '08 smarts, to correct poor paint adhesion inside the windshield frame, which could cause the windshield to be loose within the frame. However, I never recieved said notice, and assumed my car's batch was unaffected. There are probably numerous maintenance TSBs (technical service bulletins) about common post-production problems, after fourteen months of U.S. availability? What defects did your recalls involve? I've had my Mar 2008 cabriolet in for 10K service, and two minor warranty repairs (stuck shifter and persistent SRS fault light) last year, but received no recall mentions.
