I don't need to drive one to any limit to be able to knock it... Those things are uglier than blue waffles! I won't debate that they serve a purpose, and for some people ugly doesn't matter if the job gets done.

Speaking of Smart cars, saw this gem yesterday; oh, and it's LOUD with that center-exit exhaust (three cylinders of fart-can fury bra!) The way it bounced over the expansion joints getting on to the freeway I thought it would Mario itself right off the road. Needless to say I was not impressed, nor we're the other bystanders nearby. Oh, and the script on the windshield says "smart madness..." classic.

True, but they sure do sound the same. And I agree it's pretty well done...for a smart that is.

If that's a fart can then I'm guilty of having one...

Guess I should have used a different term, I was referring to the sound alone. The pipes look like quality pieces in person.

It might be a BRABUS conversion package. Included in that package was:

Sport exhaust with dual center tips

Sport suspension

15 inch front and 17 inch rear wheels

Power steering
