My 2008 Pure developed some issues and ended up being replaced. My new Pure is a 2009, same colors and I got to keep my customized wheel covers. Smart took good care of me and The Bloomington Smart dealer is the best group on the planet!!

Hi ,
Im a PURISTS to heart. I bought a PURE and the dealer had added an ALPINE stereo and Black powder coated wheel covers and tinted windows. I kept the window tint and had the dealer REPALCE the the wheel covers and the expensive radio with the ORIGINAL ones.

The Pure is around 6% of the total cars sold in the US (I was told) so that does make us a rare breed. I added the ScangaugeII and like the added information, it takes up much less space than the pod gauges.

I have Ac, solid roof, and the Radio 9, hopefully soon I will get the 451 cruise installed. I do a bit of driving and it is easy to get carried away with the speeds... After 9 months, and 16,000+ miles, still know I made the right choice.

there was some discussion a while ago about smarts losing tire pressure, and someone floated the theory that the steel (pure) wheels didn't have the same issues that the fancy (passion) wheels had.
Has anybody in a pure with stock wheels noticed anything regarding out of the ordinary lost tire pressure?

Thats what is great about the Pure. It is as fun as the other Smarts and make a great base to really personalize the car.

I think it was high time the Passion came with an optional solid roof, but no panoramic roof option for the pure? To some, I am sure that may not go well with, but then again, i was not really crazy about the panoramic roof anyway. The Smartusa site indicates that one can get the alloy wheels as an option on the Pure. True?

triple Black Pure here. the roof on the Pure is so cool, it's an option for the Passion in 2009. What's next the hubcaps ;-)
