Hi Ryan,from the photos you posted it looks like you had the same problem that I had. I hit a raccoon on the left side of my Smart passion. It busted my core-support,fog light,left fender and under panel cover. I have over $835.00 damage to mine and it has less than 10,000 mi on it. Boy does that suck!!
Once you've driven an HID headlight equipped car, you won't ever want to go back. The color varies by the temperature you choose. They are significantly brighter than the halogen stock white bulbs. They do contain a tiny bit of mercury which is what gives it the intense power for less current than the halogens draw. I am anxious to upgrade mine now that I've found a $59.00 per pair source.
Thanks Ryan,... you're right. I know it's dangerous to use the Rearview mirror.. but I like to use all my mirrors to see the back. I want to be sure that I don't have any blind spots. Thats what I did when I had my other car. I used all 3 mirrors. I guess bcuz this car is small and NEW I just extra careful when I drive. I haven't had an accident yet and don't want to either. Thanks for your advice :):):)
Ryan, thanks for your comments on my blog. I've had SunnyD for almost a year now, and it's just been so fun and economical. I get comments, thumbs-up, and questions everywhere I go, every day. I am confident in my little car, and it's already got me out of a couple of close calls, simply because of the size and maneuverability. I love it.
Hello Ryan, I just picked up our Brabus silver cabrio at Devon Wed June 17. I am so pleased I waited a year to get ours instead of taking an orphan as I almost did. I have a question about the Brabus that you might know the answer to. What was the Brabus shift knob and the emergency brake handle to look like? I thought the shifter had a logo on it and the brake lever handle was to be aluminum. Thanks
hi ryan, now that the weather is getting better i'll be taking a bunch of pictures soon i hope. the only changes inside from the comfort package interior are the brabus pedals, the brabus mats and painting all the plastic componants a bright silver instead of the dead grey color. the "by daimler" decal is in the windshield of most mercedes-benz cars so i put one in the smart because it does apply. when is your car due in and at which dealer? good luck with it, bud
