I chose my yellow and black Passion for the very distinct reason that I would prefer people looking at me and hitting some else!! It stands out a lot more than other colours on the highway here.

Secondly, does everyone have the issue of having to add about 15 minutes to each trip to stop and talk with people who are fascinated by this cutie?? Shouldn't we be on some sort of commission or point system for every conversion? Service discount, car wash?

I've felt like I've been stalked sometimes!!! I came out of the supermarket and a man was waiting my my car - said he saw me get out of it and then grilled my about it.
Nice fellow - I too have to answer questions from people while at lights. Even a woman driving a VW Beetle wanted to talk to me....guess I out cuted her!! Mainly, however, it is the SUV crowd (to which I belonged until recently).

My kids laughed at my tiny bright yellow smart car but I just told them, "when you're driving a roller skate, you want everyone to see you!" They surely do, too. I love my little bumble bee!

I'm also going to choose the black and yellow (with a red interior!) just because it's bright - I read somewhere it's like driving a smiley-face down the road! I can't wait to get mine...

YES! I find it best to avoid places like the Home Depot because every time I come back out there is a swarm of men milling around the car like moths to a flame! Getting gas is another major crowd starter. I've even had people flag me down while driving on the interstate, yelling questions out their windows! I feel like I should be handing out brochures for my dealership - I like the point system idea!
