    My car

    While Finding A First Car, For A First Time Driver. Things Are A Little Hard! You Have: Corsa's, Fiesta's, Saxo's And So Fourth! Picking A Smart Was Abit Of A Shock For Me! I Never Really Liked The Looks, There Appeal, There Size Etc.. Until! I Drove One Suddenly The Penny Drops! Low Low Low Insurance, Only 35pounds To Tax! And Brillant Fuel Consumption! One Thing That Strikes You Is How Much Room There Is! And The Boot Is More That A Treat! The Performance Is A Surprise Its 0 - 50 Time Is Faster Than Any Car Ive Been In, The Cabin Is Very Well Built As Well. The Gearbox Is Not As Bad As People Make Out! Mines Had Some Modifications That Really Make A Performance Diffrence, Remapped, Induction System, Performance Exhaust, Dump Valve, New Turbo, New Suspension, Lighter Wheels, Grooved Tarox Disks And Green Stuff Brake Pads. Over All Brillant Car, Superb First Time Motor. Drive One And You Wont Be Dissapointed.

    My car

    I am not into cars whatsoever - I've always been a biker.

    That was, until I drove my partner's Smart, then I got a Roadster and now we have a Forfour. Some people may think it's a tad too much, but I have opened up Scotland's only Smart garage which deals in modified parts and servicing - a snip at Mercedes prices, but with a lot more care.

    My car

    I've owned this car for 6 months now and overall its a great car. Its very nippy about town and there's plenty of room inside. The boot is small as you would expect, but for the size of the car what do you expect!

    The cabin trim looks cheap but it is quirky just like the car itself. Fuel consumption is low, unless you turn on the air con, as this eats petrol. It does lose power when it changes gear, but its something you get used to as you adapt your driving style.

    My car

    This car is not just a means of getting from one place to another: it's more a travelling art-form. There are cars which are cheaper, more practical, faster, more comfortable and even greener. None have a fraction of the personality of the Fortwo.

    This is a machine designed by someone with a soul. It's a no-compromise pedigree and, if you want to, you can always kid yourself that you want one because it's easy to park or because it's (relatively) ecological. The reality is that this tiny, highly-strung heart-throb begs to be brought in at night, parked in front of the fire and covered with a woolly blanket.

    'Built by Mercedes,' says the microscopic underfloor power unit, and, perhaps, that's the biggest plus of all: this little bundle of fun is not the usual anonymous assemblage of bits and pieces from all over the globe. The whole thing has been put together as an entity, with as few environmental nasties as possible, at a custom-built plant in France.

    The Smart isn't faultless, (what great pioneering design was?), but its few shortcomings only make it more lovable.
