new news PEG.. 1st of all - CONGRATS again on getting your smart.. I'm jealous. lol My news - on Oct 23rd I got an e-mail saying that the smart Brabus was going to be available in the USA Feb 1 2009. Its a limited production car.. 1500 total cars. Because I am a reservation holder who had not configured, I was invited to configure a Brabus.. I did so. The configuration time is up NOV 2nd at 11:59 pm. On NOV 3rd I will get an e-mail saying if I will or will not get a Brabus. It depends if 1500 people with longer reservation dates configured one. They are either Black/Black or Silver/Silver. Coupe or Cabrio. I configured a Silver/Silver Coupe. Send some pics of that smart little car of yours.. :-)
congratulations PEG.. i sure wish i was getting my smart. My orig 90 day window was oct-dec 2009, it got as close as apr-jun 2009 and last week it went back to 'not able to estimate my delivery date'.. i haven't gotten to configure yet. Let me know how you like your little stinger.. Bill
my dealer called me Sept 10 that my wait was almost over car should about be here Oct 10 gave me vin 3# about 15 Sept still cant track car and dealer said now 21 Oct than 23 Oct . Idont know whats going on getting very inpatient.wish they knew more about how the system works any one else had this problem?
sounds great Peg. I wish I could have gotten a yellow one but mine will be a 2010 model and there isn't yellow after this year. I do like the couple of new things about it. It will have a little light on the dash to say if the gas cap is loose. Also netting on both doors where the storage area is, to make it a little bigger. I hope the price doesn't increase. Click on my profile and read about my date changing these last couple of days.. I am so happy.. I might have my smart by next AUGUST instead of OCTOBER-DEC
I have waited for my car so long and im happy that it will be here in Oct but im not happy with it being a 2008 and the 2009 will start being shipped the first of Nov that makes my car a year old by the time i get it anyone else in this same boat? how do you feel about it?
Hi, Peg. My Dealer sent me an email with the VIN on 8/11/08. It turned out that was the day my smart was loaded on a ship. There is another thread on smart usa insider that had a ship tracking website. I watched it all the way to Baltimore, 8/23/08. I waited until Monday then emailed questions. I got an email back on Tuesday then a voice mail on Wednesday that it was supposed to be in Indianapolis on Sep 3rd!!
