Fred commented on sUSAi Admin's blog post Brabus Rims Giveaway
"So here is a rather 'green' looking 2008 cabrio (actually pale yellow with black tridion) which came home with me in May, 2008. Once it turned a bit more yellow, I named it bumbl. Right after I drove bumbl home, I fulfilled a dream I…"

"I had a similar problem with my 2008 cabrio. The dealer called it an 'upgrade' and the charge was $50. I had it done a few weeks ago and, so far, so good."

"Fred, well put. I'm on SCOA and 451. 451 is a NING site like susai but no corporate ties. Maybe I should start a 'We're moving to 451' Group. lol MJB"

Fred replied to Roe DeVasto's discussion Passion Cabriolet Carwash?
"My cabrio is over two years old. I bring it through a car wash about every three weeks. WHen I wash it myself, I use a mild detergent on the fabric with a medium bristle brush. The top looks great. "

Hey Fred, thanks for the headsup, I can understand the situattion, they need to put an assembly plant in the US, but dont pay the workers $80 and hour to put one lug nut on all day....he he he. I can wait for maybe six months then I will make a decision .....fly and drive or wait it out, my current vehicle is an 06 Cobalt, junk, and the Smart Buy, lease, runs out August 010. Thanks again for the scoop the straight poop and now I know and it is cool. Love that blue/black Smartie.... Larry

That's for a regular Smart. They are not leasing the Brabus models which to be honest is the only Smart I am interested in. Thanks for the comment though. :)

Ok here is some more info on the names...the font will be the same that is on the word "Smart' on your car. You can have the your name, Joe, Betty, whatever on your door if you choose. If you have named your car, ie: Piglet, Ladybug etc, you can have that put on the nose or on the back of your car. I will be putting examples of the font and the locations on this site on Weds. along with prices. The names will be vinyl and can be put on the day of the event. The vinyl is nice for the reason that you can take it off very easily if you choose.
More info to follow..........
