Re: Smart Roadster

I like em. Got a MX-5 feel about it and it doesn't look as camp as a Suzuki Cappachino or Diahatsu Copen !

Re: Smart Roadster

Smarts are like Swatches (Obviously, considering):
They are cheap and nasty, but still sell for relatively
big bucks.


Uncool.


Give me a Jap K car over a smart any day of the week.

Yes, the only "car" that is both gay and unstylish as well
as being uncool. All at the same time.

Even if it was the Brabus one then that would mean it's quicker than a standard but still not cool.


Smart cars are for those people among us who consider themselves to be 'wacky'.

Re: Smart Roadster

The Brabus ones are cool, and get the Hayabusa conversion kit fitted and you'll embarrass some supercars away from the lights.

They also handle brilliantly, great fun to drive.

Totally cool (but not sub sero)

Re: Smart Roadster

I've actually gone with the consensus. It's not like me to agree with anyone

I hates me these cars! and Mr PG thinks they're the DBs.

Stupid little plastic toy car thingy

Re: Smart Roadster

A good idea and quite well executed but not exactly what you'd call cool.

I'd be afraid of being run over while in that kart!!

I think only women and designers can look cool in that "car".

Re: Smart Roadster

sorry,

as an ex owner - it was a hoot to drive, reasonably practical, economical.

service intervals were every 300 yards and the main dealers were sh1te..

the brabus was way overpriced.

but remap a standard one and add sportpack - and it was smiles all round.

Re: Smart Roadster

Uncool. If you want a Smart car then buy a BRABUS Four Four. It's quicker. It handles better and you can see where your going

Ho, and it's better looking IMHO
