"What exactly are you proposing?  As for racing, I looked at that before and other than needing an approved helmet, it wasn't too bad cost wise."

"Don't you need to turn in the snow as well?  Traction isn't just a matter of being able to propel yourself, you also need to turn and stop.  This is one area that being cheap defeats the purpose.   @Clint I sent you an IM."

"@Ed I need snow tires for Kasper.  Currently it has on the front 175/60 15.  I don't see that size as being an option for snow tires.  What size of snow tires are best for the car?"

SMART Party in Westminster Colorado!

Posted on September 28, 2011 at 1:41pm 0 Comments

There will be a huge party for SMARTies, and their cars, at Mercedes Benz of Westminster Colorado on November 9, 2011, at 6:30 PM.  MB is hosting this party to show SMART owners an example of a great SMART dealership.  There will be food served from Brother's Barbecue, discussions from SMART technicians and a representative of the Mercedes Benz club of America (SMART cars are the only cars without a MB badge allowed in the club!).  There will be door prizes and lots of SMART bling to be had.… Continue

Diamler Transistion

Posted on May 12, 2011 at 10:36pm 1 Comment

I'm curious how the Mercedes Benz transition is occurring in other states than Colorado.  Our SMART center is closing Saturday, with no word yet as to whom will be taking over sales and warranty service.  Are people in other states having the same issues?

Loved the invite to the National Park but I'm in MD so can't make the trip. Take lots of photos though I'd love to see them. Have a blast! And thanks again for the invite.

Russell, I would like to attend the convention, but it would be a long drive for two 70 year olds from Virginia Beach. We could fly in. That would take 5 hours, compared with 4 days driving. But It would be great to drive my smart in the Rockies.

Hi Russell,

I saw your question about the wrench and 400 miles coming up on your display in the Colorado owner's group.  I realize you already got an answer, but I just wanted to give you a little bit more information.  The message is actually known as the maintenance service interval display and comes up about a month before the next service interval (based on last reset) and displays the days or distance to Kiwi's next required maintenance.  There is also more information on this message and others available in the operator's manual.

Hope this helps,

Happy motoring!

Russ, I forgot to ask last night: Did you finish reading the smart book yet? If so: Could you bring it with you on Saturday (if you are coming on the drive)? I am thinking of putting together another smart quiz.

Hello Smarties.  Just talked to Paul and he is interested in MB West.  He has put in a call to them.  Let's hope it all works out.  Paul was really choked up that we are all behind him and support him so strongly.  He is very grateful to the Smart community.  By the way, the manager and service manager at MB said that they would love to come to our meetings and discuss service and accessories for the Smart brand.  Also to keep us all in the loop of what is going on in Smartland.  Hey everyone, come to the Smart meetings and you can see what's going on too!  The 2nd Wed of every month at Brothers BBQ 6th and Washington.  7pm.  We are going to get some drives going too so give us your imput!!!!
