I got home about 45 minutes ago in my new Smart Cabriolet!!!! My delivery date was tentatively February 14, but my dealer, Cherie, at Smart Center, Cary, NC, called this morning and said that they had just received an orphan that was configured just like mine with the addition of foglamps and the alarm. I went out to check it out and to try to work out a trade on my Smart orphan that I bought in late August to "tide me over" until mine came in.
Well, I arrived at the Smart Center around 11:30 a.m. and by 1 p.m. I was leaving with my new one -- only 10 miles on it as I drove out of the parking lot with the top open to the back and my seat heater on. (It's about 21 degrees here today!!!!) It's red with the silver accent and is a real beauty. I had ordered the extra instrument panel and that adds a sportiness to the car.
So now there is a little used Smart Orphan in Cary, NC that needs a new Mommy!!!! I can't say enough about how wonderful I was treated this morning during the whole process. They were very busy, but took all the time needed with me.
Soon they'll have a new red/silver cabriolet Orphan.
So, no more waiting for me. Hang on, to all who are still waiting. It's worth the wait.
