they only make two colour smart cars black or silver so make sure they are talking about the colour of the smart car. the colour panals are not the legal colour of your car. because as stated you can change the colour panals the legal colour of all smarts in the usa is eather blk or silver

Call the dealer. Call smart USA.

The paperwork for mine said black, but the car is red. I think that only refers to the safty cell (black or silver). Since the body panels are easily changed, they don't consider them to be the color of the car.

Hi Peg! I simpathize with you, I also lost the opportunity to get the Yellow. I was very upset but lucky for me one of the new colors is a color I like and fits my "Goth tendencies" LOL. I hope you can resolve this dilemma to your satisfaction. I really wanted the purple color available in Europe, I am still hopeful eventually they will have it here. We will see. Call the dealership and if your Smart is being delivered before Nov. ask them to honor your agreement. Good luck!

What's missing here is any indication that Peg has discussed this with either smart or her dealer. Some of the comments assume that her dealer or smart won't be of any help. Have ANY of you ever gotten something and instead of talking to the seller or merchant simply started blogging with total strangers to try to resolve your problem? Really?
