(standing) Hi, my name's kurlee and I'm addicted to smartusainsider.com. Every time I turn on my computer this the first place I go. I know I'm not the only one because I see many of the same people responding to questions/comments. I have a long time to go before I get my car and I am in need of your support. : ) I love seeing all the photos from the group meets and just from around town. I haven't been a part of such a cult-like group of followers since my bug days in the '80s and '90s with all the Bug-o-ramas that I used to go to. I like my Mustang that I have now but I'm not a muscle car fan and all everyone wants to do is drag race. A couple times a week at a stop light there's some goober revving their engine wanting to race me. "Get a life, loser!" Though, I do love racing (F1, ALMS) I'm not going to street race. You guys and this site have a totally different mentality which is refreshing, thanks. Now, enough of this love fest, I have to go to work. And I thank you for your support. ha!

Hi Kurlee, thanks for responding to my initial impressions. After 11 days of ownership, we are still happy and having fun. My wife is a librarian and has put 5 boxes of books in the smart with no problem. We also did a weeks grocery shopping and it all fit in the rear "trunk" area. I read somewhere that Mercedes added 8 inches to the model for the USA. I wonder if that was to increase the space behind the seats. There is more room there than I expected and it helps. Bye, Mel

Hi, I'm Carol and enjoy this site also. Waiting for my little smart, with much anticipation. Not due until next summer, but in the meantime all of you give me much support and best of all, information on what to expect in both the process and the car. Thanks to all and I look forward to talking with you again-and getting my smart !

Cool! I just got home from work and here I am again, and look at all the great responses. I think I found a home. Thanks!

Hello, I'm tobias and I have been an addict since July 2008. I check other sites, but I like that smartusainsider is funded by smartusa and as such has no other advertising on it.

It is also likely to be around as long as our smarts are around.

Oh yeah, and I do like the people from all walks of life on here, of course.

Hi, I'm Kory and I am also an addict. I've tried Smart Car of America, and it does not compare. This site is clearly superior.

i really don't believe that anyone is more addicted to the smart car than me, and I don't even own one yet. If I'm on the computer 2 times a day, I'm here 2 times. If I'm on 15 times a day, I'm here 15 times. I check my Estimated date as many times as I get on this sight. I still haven't got to configure but have run across a lady who lives close by that reserved 10 days before me and configured about 15 days ago.. This keeps me searching for my configuration e-mail. Kurlee,, I know exactally how you feel. I've been on many many sights and to me, this is the best one. Good luck holding out. I need some also.

I love this site too. I check others, but y'all are right, this site is WAY more friendly and dedicated to the fun part of owning a cool car.

Hi Kurlee, Welcome.
I too am hooked on smartinsider. I try to check into SCOA every so often just to see what new techy news there might be. But I must say....this site is so much more "friendly" and there seems to be more "waiting" or "newbies" rather than the "over-a-year" kinda folk that are more conserned about mods and engine repairs.
Glad to have you with us !
Richard E.
