Ordered the car in early April 07. Was worth the wait! My car cost about 15,050 with shipping. I've only driven 500 miles, MPG = 38-41. Parked at an NHRA race in Madison Il. and must have had 100 people ask questions and give the thumbs up-even several Illinois State troopers. The car is what it is and I love it! The shifting is hard to get use to but with a little practice it is a blast. Steering is also tricky because of the short wheelbase
The paddle shifters are fun to play with. The looks you get from other motorist is priceless. (I hope no one has a wreck gawking)
More choices of interior colors. My Smart is red with the silver cell-but I could only get leather in black. I opted for the red cloth
