S.M.A.R.T = Slow Moving And Really Tiny Review with images

AdvantagesEye catching, neat and cheap to run

funny, little, ridiculous, wonderful car

AdvantagesSmall, parking everywhere, Less gasoline consumption, You know you have something special, extraordinary, High security standard

DisadvantagesRather expensive accessories, winter problems

" Well, what to say about this funny, little, ridiculous, wonderful car? After all, i love it. Its still something special to drive one, after all this years. Not an usual one, too may of them are already on the street, especially in Germany, where I live, but one of the good things about a smart is that you get him and all the accessories in all colors and styles yo ucan imagine. My smart is black with yellow interior, has aluminium rims and a holder ..." Read review
