SHOW ME YOUR PROGRESS FROM RESERVATION DATE TO.......

Posted on February 11, 2009 at 9:30pm 9 Comments

Just thought it would be interesting to see how our waiting experience compares to others, and it's something to do while we wait. And it may help others be encouraged as they see how the pieces fit together. So here goes, I've been keeping a running log on my page everytime I get a bit more information.

No shelter for my Smart

Posted on January 28, 2009 at 9:04am 10 Comments

Hi anyone out there who has had their Smart for a while who doesn't have shelter for it? Wondered if you had any issues with the finish due to weather events. We live in Kansas so the weather changes daily, sometimes hourly, with wild swings in temperature, rain, wind, sun, hail, ice, snow, you name it.

Your snow pics of Ruby T are wonderfull. Red smart against all white background. and the one with the trees in the background is really pretty as well. The red one could be a Christmas card. That picture on the front and the liscense plate photo inside would pretty much say it all!
Merry Christmas!

Back in July I posted a request from members about what options they would recommend for the new Smart I was purchasing.

You strongly recommended the heated seat in your reply. Well the temperature here has dropped to 30 and my wife LOVES the heated seats and believe that allow makes the purchase of the car.

Thanks for the recommendation, It really helped in the final decision making. I have had my Smart for two months now and love the car.

Looks like you are getting your car within 60 days instead of 90. Is that right?

Actually my DDE moved up to April prior to my config.
But Jackie Cooper of Tulsa told me I should get my smartie 90- 120 days. So my date should move up.
My husband and I figure around Jan or Feb now.

It's official, my wife and I bought a house in Bel Aire today and you could start seeing my yellow smart around town as early as next week. We're looking forward to living in the Wichita area.
Have a great weekend,
Bruce
