now that TFM has the image upload module installed on the forum, I would love to see pictures of people with their smart cars in their own "introduce yourself" thread. Did you get pictures of you excepting the keys? Pictures of you on the road? And if you have not gotten your smart car yet, do you have some pictures that you have taken of your favourite smart cars that you have seen around? Thanks, all.

Hi folks! I have split the various threads in this topic into their own topics (eg. "smartklasse intro"). It is easier to find these introductions with their own topics than letting them get buried deep in a multi-page general topic.

Greetings from Vancouver. :cheer2:

We took possession of our stream green Pulse with A/C and upgraded speakers about four weeks ago and have about 1200kms on it already. Love it more every day!!! Can't beleive the number of people on the street that want to know all about it.

Hi : My user name is ORLOV, and I live near Oliver, B.C. I have a Pulse, arrived April 2005 , Love it ! Love it!! Love it!! It is creamy white with black tridion. As everyone says and knows it gets such incredible attention everywhere it goes. So far it is the only one in the Valley . It has the paddles for shifting, cup holder, a/c, and lots of other stuff I havent even figured out yet.

I am sure I will enjoy this Forum, and learn lots of interesting details of the Smart line.

tally ho everyone.

Oh yes, my interests include horses, a lifelong passion, dancing, travelling and of course the smart !!

Will try to paste on a pix of my "Cutie". Dont know how to put it under my user name in the forum.

[[well, that didnt work, cant see anywhere to click to put in a photo]]

Hi Chicklet. As you can see by my posts, I'm new too. My husband I are currently awaiting the arrival of what will either be Stag 2 or Starr.

Have fun posting. There are a lot of wonderful people out there.

Hello! I am new to this forum and I am glad I found some "smarties" out there. I got mine (finally) in June after a long and torturous wait. I am looking forward to checking the site to see what other smart car enthusiasts are up to.

Welcome to the board mlg, glad to see you have found us, did you stumble upon us all on your own or were you directed here by someone ??

At first I thought "mlg" might be Maple Leaf Gardens but judging by your location I decided against it so I will assume that it is your initials...........

Stay and have fun if you don't see what you are looking for, just ask, someone will point the way or answer any questions you have...........

Again welcome! :beerchug:

Hello Everyone!

(Posted first by mistake in the Lethbridge thread - sorry about that - not so Smart after all.)

I'm expecting my new 2006 Smart Passion Coup? any day now... it was in Halifax on the 7th. It's only a week ago (today) that I placed my order at Silver Star in Montreal... they said they had some 2006 models that had just arrived in Halifax and I picked from among those not already sold. I didn't end up with exactly what I wanted, but I'm just too impatient to wait for a custom-built one.

In any case, mine's the new Ruby Red color, has heated leather seats, upgraded sound, locking drawer, gauges/clock, power steering and electric sunroof. (Don't think I forgot anything.) The only things on the car that I did NOT want were the power steering (can't believe this car needs it) and the electric sunroof. And the only thing I wanted that isn't on the car is the dust/pollen filter and I understand from my dealer that it is not something that can be added afterwards.

So far the only things I'm planning to add are the cable for connecting my iPod and most likely the 60hp Upsolute remap. Anything else you folks think are needed?

Here in Montreal, regular gas is at $1.144/l today!!!!!! And at last week's prices ($1.124/l) I calculated that the Smart was going to save me $52 PER WEEK based on my normal driving. My current car is a Lexus RX-300, which I'm not getting rid of (as I need the trailer towing for my small boat).

Cheers!

Eldor

Well, I split your other intro from the Lethbridge thred, so now you have your very own one!

As I wrote on "the other forum", the pollen filter CAN be added later. Just ask HornHonker (a member at both sites) whose dealer - Three Point Motors Victoria - did this job for him a few months back.

The sunroof is great; I am sure you'll enjoy it.
