The provisional total of 2008 model 451 imports to Canada is 3961. I assume no more 2008s will be coming in now that Bailey24's is on the way!There are 187 2009 models in Canada so far.

My dealer told me my car was the last 2008. He wasn't kidding! I thought it was just for that dealership but no, it's for real! :D I have to get plates that say "Last-1" :lol: Edited by Bailey24

Correction to the total numbers of 451 imported: only 3884 2008 model 451s were imported....I had some duplicate VINs in the database.To date, 264 2009 models have been imported or are on their way.

Nearly 140 new smarts are en route now. Get a load of the serial number/ VIN of the first one in the list: a 2008 model that was built around (actually: just a few days after) when we were on the factory tour last April!!!! They will be arriving on November 26th.147790220983221027221579221763221803221811221827221963221991222071222167222187222203222207222223222271222279222283222287222303222311222371222383222391222395222407222415222423222479222523222595222619222695222799222827222831223039223071223103223143223155223198223210223234223250223258223270223290223310223314223318223334223338223358223424223451223671223679223691223695223763223775223779223783223787223835223871223879223883223899223931223943223951223967223971223987224015224019224067224083224099224131224203224314224362224378224386224422224442224458224550224570224574224638224642224706224806224818224826224834224838224846224910224934225122225126225209225273225277225293225330225346225350225390225414225498225502225514225518225522225526225558225562225570225586225602225622225654225726225802225810225870225946226078226186226238226306

Here are a few more, set to arrive on December 2nd. Again, we have a 7 month (!!!) old car arriving in this shipment. Could it and the old car in the previous shipment be the first two prototype BRABUS editions for Canada?148288222387222563222639222699222763223242223459223491224310224330224382224482224494224526224530224554224646224918224926225010225042225050225114225146225249225289225578225678225698225702225746225790225862226182226206226218226246226270226590226611226730226758226778226835226839226847

Hi all,FYI, when the cars arrive in Halifax I am always notified (I am sales at MB Downtown Toronto)- corporate stores always are, of the ETA to Halifax so I know exactly when that day will be. I can rush-truck a smart to be here for delivery about 3-4 days later once it arrives in Halifax. Otherwise the car will go straight to rail and take a few weeks longer.

should add, every colour and model has now arrived in our stores for the '09 models! And I have just finalized my Brabus orders, the first should be here late January.

On a second check, the colour codes were changed to include the grey metallic (it was previously showing silver).The new grey metallic began production 12.1 decade, so it should arrive before Christmas- if you have orders that can be rush-trucked. Otherwise by rail, January.

So there won't be any grey cars at dealerships in Canada until January?-Iain

122 more cars, arriving on Christmas eve.

Unfortunately, not until January. I'll keep you posted when I see the status on boat.Did you order a grey one? Or just waiting to see what it looks like?
