DVI has just put up the new ad campaign on http://www.smartusa.com what do you think of the "unbig. uncar." theme. Using the new site is quite different.

What do you think?

According to what we have been told, today is the day that Mercedes Benz USA is taking over smart in the U.S. I hope that some of the good things I have heard regarding the transition/takeover will be coming forth soon.
