If you are considering buying one of these, do not watse any more time considering, JUST BUY IT! (and no I don't work for mercedes).
A former hater of smarty cars, my fiancee persuaded me to take one for a test drive last summer. During the test drive it was ok, however the more I thought about it, the more I fell in love with it, and by the time the second test drive came, i was sold!
Having tested bot the non-turbo and the turbo, I found a real noticable difference in power production with the turbo, and although this sacrifices fuel economy for power, Im glad we got the turbo.
One thing to be aware of is, ignore the fuel economy stats for these cars. I believe our car is said to achieve an average of around 50-60mpg. We have been lucky to achieve 40mpg. This is comon with many I believe. With this said however, less than £30 to fill the tank for 250 miles is not that bad, especially for a mid engined turbo coupe!!
Overall, these are amazing cars, and one which puts a smile on my face every time I get into it. With ample boot space, day to day duties are never a problem. I will always have a smart car in my life!
Sorry but there is not enough information or opinion in this review to make it helpful from the point of view of a consumer looking at making a purchase. If you update please leave a message in my guestbook and I will return to re-rate.

My reviews are not about spec or stats, but general info that may be of use. It was meant to be brief, but give some insight. Cheers

Could do with a bit more info. Try taking us on a tour around the car to give us an insight into all its feaures.
