Gerber in Roswell is Amazing

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 6:53pm 0 Comments

Windscreen is Smart OEM, new seal (old one could be reused but I opted for new) and the stratched Tridion and front panels have been repaired perfectly. I mean they nailed the color. Its as if they shipped the panels to Smartville, had Smart GmbH paint it and then sent it back. Amazing job.



If you live in the Atlanta, Georgia metro area and have any vehicle that needs post-accident and/or windscreen repair, do not… Continue

I hate GA-400 and Honda Accords

Honda driver chooses to run over the rectangular metal object instead of avoid it. This kicks the object into the air. I swerved left to try to miss it but couldn't leave my lane as there was a vehicle next to… Continue

Smooth Rear Wiper



Thanks to evilution.co.uk I found out that the rear wiper from the new model Smart ForTwo (called the 451) fits the previous model's (called the 450 and in the USA is a "grey market" vehicle) rear wiper.
