  1. Hello again! I know I have been quiet on here for some time now. That's due in part to having sold off my 5th smart in the summer of 2014, and going (officially) smartless for the first time in about 10 years. Actually, early 2007, I had loaned my cdi for a number of months to some friends, and was without a smart then too... but when the canada1 cabrio left my underground parking last year - there were no definite plans for another smart immediately. That being the case, I never said 'never again'! I like the smart brand! So, there's only 4 of these canada1's in the country... three cabrio, and just one is a coupe. I had two chances to buy the coupe in years passed - 2010 I think was the first time. And then again a few years later. Each time, I referred a friend to the car instead... kinda keeping it as an ace up my sleeve so to speak. Well..... might as well just get to it. The 3rd owner, David, was thinking to move it along a couple times this year, and in late October, we swapped vehicles for a few days so that I could iron out a noise he'd had trouble with for some time. (Which did turn out to be the AC lines!) And the rest is now history! We've swapped and made it official today and did the paperwork at the broker - I just got back in the door. 90,877 kms Running excellent with many parts refreshed as new such as the turbo, suspension, coupe hatch shocks, front brakes, engine mounts, AC fixed, rear windows resealed, etc..... David did most of the work himself until an injury prevented him from dealing with a sloppy front engine mount. Just needs tires! My name is '1'... 'canada1'.... I'll go downstairs and grab a few pics.
