An orphan came in like my original configuration

I received a call yesterday that an orphan showed up Yellow/Black Cabriolet with Black Leather comfort package just like the one I originally entered when I joined the reservation program. The only difference from the original is that the dealer added a racing stripe (added a few hundred dollars to the price). I will be looking at the car today with my wife to see if i will buy it.

A couple weeks ago I officially configured my 2009 smart. I ordered (since yellow has been discontinued) the Gray Metallic/Black Cabriolet with Black Cloth interior (no comfort package but every other option including heated seat and daytime running lamps). I did this because of the price increase. But I still like the comfort package.

So I am considering the 2008 that has the comfort package or the 2009 that arrives in a couple months that has a color I like better (and the daytime running lights). Tough decision...

I looked and drove the orphan yesterday. The stripes are not too bad. Let's face it, how long could they be? It is a triple line a thick one in the middle and a thin line on each side. There is also a very thin pinstripe down the side of the car. It's somewhat tasteful in a Euro sort of way. The only thing(s) missing were the stalks on the dash. It's such a tough call. The dealership gave me until the end of day Friday to make up my mind.
