@  kdubya : (31 October 2014 - 01:53 PM) Checked the registries, super cool! Didn't realize both my cars had been previously auctioned. Thanks fellas!
@  Mike T : (31 October 2014 - 11:59 AM) Hello members, we are pleased to have gone "live" with our Car Registries dropdown, for the moment containing only the Canadian 450 cdi list. Please read the information concerning the use of the Registry on our homepage. Thanks!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) You should look at the "Service Options" link at the top of the page though, for independent smart mechanics
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) Could be the cold start issue that SkyDiverChris has been fighting with too. Temperature's about right
@  Mike T : (30 October 2014 - 05:38 PM) I am thinking it's the fuel pump connection on the SAM but a dealer should look at that first due to the Service Bulletin on the topic.
@  SINIVU : (30 October 2014 - 05:32 PM) Probably Kitchener dealer!
@  Mike T : (30 October 2014 - 05:19 PM) Which dealer?
@  babycakes : (30 October 2014 - 02:48 PM) My smart tries to start but won't quite start - at Mercedes now and they have no idea what's wrong
@  babycakes : (30 October 2014 - 02:46 PM) does anyone know of a place to take the smart besides Mercedes
@  lebikerboy : (30 October 2014 - 12:31 PM) I miss Bil's stuff too!
@  Coast Steve : (30 October 2014 - 10:21 AM) I miss seeing Bil Gladstone's crazy inventions! "Skunk Werx" I think it was.
@  marchanna : (23 October 2014 - 06:26 PM) You should report that, it makes you an accessory after the fact. Oh crap! Now we're all accessories! Speaking of which, I should buy some accessories for my car.
@  Coast Steve : (23 October 2014 - 04:41 PM) He ment to say Killing time
@  Coast Steve : (23 October 2014 - 04:41 PM) Speaking of typing mistakes, my buddy typed to someone "I'm just around the corner killing Tim".
@  Wild! : (23 October 2014 - 11:52 AM) Going to Glenn's he says he may have what I need.
@  Wild! : (23 October 2014 - 11:49 AM) This has to do with side lighting.
@  Wild! : (23 October 2014 - 11:49 AM) No that part was done 2 years ago.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (23 October 2014 - 08:48 AM) Top secret panel painting project?
@  Wild! : (22 October 2014 - 04:05 PM) Does some one have an 450 old door skin? one that is broken or garbage want to do some tests on one before I attempt my good ones.
@  Mike T : (22 October 2014 - 06:20 AM) John from Victoria, are you and Keith on the site these days? We have a dinner on November 6th coming up in Victoria! It would be cool to see you both there! See the thread in the Vancouver Island sub-forum.

Same here, the top windshield frame is right in the centre of my field of vision in a Miata.

That's the main reason I am trading it, I am 6'1" tall, so it was a tight fit before, now that I have gained a few pounds...After thinking about captain jacks post.I would be willing to trade for a 450 as well.CANMAN

A good friend of mine is 6'3" and has a 90 Miata and he fits no problem. Just removed some of the seat padding from the bottom of the driver's seat.Great car. He has almost 300k on it, and other than fluid changes and replacing the brake pads once, nothing has needed replacement. And that car has as much track mileage as some cars have street mileage. :)

Welcome to the club. I like the smarts so much that I bought 6 :D

we all know you have a problem! haha

Well I have tried to help Glenn with his problem. I have introduced him to the concept that there are cars, other then smart cars, that are fun to drive. (miata) And have reduced his hoard of smart cars by one. So now, I have 2 smart cars, well technically 3 if you count my parts car. O.M.G. It's contagious, I have caught the smart car collecting bug from Glenn! CANMAN

What's even funnier is that I think this green smart may be the record setter for distance before any major problems; I predict 400,000 km ;)

I hope so. Everything I did to that car while I had it was basically for the benefit of the next owner, even if I had kept it.

The sunbursts are gone! Now it just looks like any other stream green cabrio. Which is, of course, the best colour combination.
