I Haven't Died, Just Got to Heaven!

Finally, May 21, 2008 smartxs was delivered!



Drove her home and then around a bit that evening so she had 42 miles on the odometer. But then I had to abandone her!



Friday I had to leave for a weekend Optimist District meeting in Sacramento, and I WOULD have taken smartxs but I had two passengers to take along and NEITHER was willing to ride in the trunk!



Sunday we got home and I installed the NAV/Bluetooth/XM radio and the arm rest. A few more miles running… Continue

Could it Take ANY Longer?!

Well, the dealer got about 15 new cars in this weekend. VINs range from 138,000 to 142,000. My vin is 141,630.



Guess which vehicle wasn't in the delivery!



I am sure it also means that mine will be delivered in the next few days.



Now I am REALLY excited! Will probably be heart-attack excited when the car actually arrives!



Time for practicing the breathing exercises. If I don't, I might forget to breathe. breathe, breathe.



I know you are… Continue

Here It COOOmmmes!

Well, maybe.



e-mail from smart center San Jose today: smartxs unloaded today, delivery to dealer usually takes 10 days and they will get it serviced as quickly as possible and notify me when it is ready for delivery.



and yes, we know you don't want the front license plate installed.



My response: Don't install the front license plate!

Money is burning a hole in my pocket waiting for delivery.

Remember: This IS my Birthday… Continue

Whadaya Mean NO CAR!?

Dealer got NO deliveries Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or today - I was SURE it would arrive this week and deliver next (after all I told the dealer this is Birthday Month!) and the dealer wants me OUTTA the showroom!



Yes, it really is birthday month, and YES I really do celebrate it ALL month! My wife will verify this.



So, back to the line, and waiting.



Nav is here, installation kits are here, arm rest is here, scangauge is here, Zimmer's special imitation disk… Continue

Ordering on-line

I order a lot of stuff on line, and since I knew the smart was on the way, I guess I have gotten carried away buying it birthday presents. (Can you really spoil a smartie?!)



Of all the items I have ordered, only one transaction has presented a problem. But, I get ahead of myself.



You've possibly read my earlier posts about the mirror accessories, the arm rest, trunk storage unit, the scangauge and Lord knows what else is in the other room! It is getting so crowded I am… Continue

Hi Smartxs I don't know Jim Watts but I just might look him up when my smart arrives. Cambria is a small place, I will certainly mention your name. It's hard waiting!!!

the lag is two seconds. it states that it gatheres data for two seconds and averages mph, mpg, etc... thats fine but the lag in rpm renew for 2 seconds is murder. I bought it because I did not like the periscope rpm & clock Smart offers.

hey if I remember right you purchased a SnangaugeII for your smartie... Well I just installed mine and I'm happy but not delighted as I thought I'd be...
