Reserved my Coupe at the in July 2007 with my iPhone on the autobahn during a test drive as part of "press day" at the Frankfurt Auto show. Still not here until maybe March 2009 they say.
So picked up a silver/black Cabrio orphan with comfort package and love it! It's my first convertible! Lots of top down time so far here in Dallas/Fort Worth!
Driving was a bit dicey but manageable last week in 40mph + cross winds, kind of like being in a Cessna 150. I guess my coupe will become an orphan??? Or maybe have two??? The GL320CDI SUV seems to be staying garaged these days.
I get a few questions, most especially when I exit the car, as I am 6'9" (206cm) tall, and people are amazed that I am so comfortable in this car. The roominess of my smart amazes me too, especially since I cannot even get into or drive many huge SUVs on the market today as they are so poorly designed!
My Dealer Park Place in Dallas has been terrific in both sales and service. They could not be nicer or more efficient.
Such a cool and fun sports car!
