Hey Fred, thanks for the headsup, I can understand the situattion, they need to put an assembly plant in the US, but dont pay the workers $80 and hour to put one lug nut on all day....he he he. I can wait for maybe six months then I will make a decision .....fly and drive or wait it out, my current vehicle is an 06 Cobalt, junk, and the Smart Buy, lease, runs out August 010. Thanks again for the scoop the straight poop and now I know and it is cool. Love that blue/black Smartie.... Larry
Ok here is some more info on the names...the font will be the same that is on the word "Smart' on your car. You can have the your name, Joe, Betty, whatever on your door if you choose. If you have named your car, ie: Piglet, Ladybug etc, you can have that put on the nose or on the back of your car. I will be putting examples of the font and the locations on this site on Weds. along with prices. The names will be vinyl and can be put on the day of the event. The vinyl is nice for the reason that you can take it off very easily if you choose.
More info to follow..........

This morning, while backing out of my driveway, the transmission indicator on the instrument panel stayed indicating "N". No matter what I did with the gear selector, no forward or backward motion...just Park and N. Thinking about blog comments about the technology in the smart, I came to the conclusion that I had to 'reboot.' So, I switched off the ignition; switched it back on again and voila... all was well. I selected 'R' and the smart backed up, out the driveway and I continued on my way to work. Anybody else experience this?
