I'm a BIG Star Wars fan, so my new Smart will be given a name along those lines. I still have a while to wait B4 I can configure, and then another long wait, but I know it'll be worth it. My wife and 6 cats will all want to ride with me, but only my better half will do so. I consider my Smartie to be a motorcycle with 4 wheels. Safer and hopefully a great feeling of freedom, as I once had when I rode years ago. I also am looking forward to creating some great friendships with other Smart owners.
I think that if you reserve it for $500. It would come in alot sooner. I hear of so many people waiting a year or more for their cars. I recieved mine in less than 5 months. Ive heard our dealer might be getting special treatment. That might make al the difference.
That's a good attitude for a good car. I've been waiting since my $99 date of August 07. My DDE has moved from the original of June 09 (if I remember correctly) to January 09. In reality, I hope it comes in August 08-October 08... that would sure make me happy! Hang in there. Yours will be in soon, too!
