My Favorite For The Moment — the most fun to drive in years! it sits low, has a revy litlle engine, powerfull enough to make a brisk start, and most of all give you the feeling you are really driving fast at 50km/h, how cool is that!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: ABSOLUTE FUN

Cons: nothing really

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks cool and really good on petrol

Smart Roadster Brabus Coupe — Not the fastest car from stationary, however, once above 30mph it's fine. Which unless you're a boy racer who insists on flooring it from the lights then it's hardly important. On the a and b roads of the UK that car handles exceptionally well, leaving most cars standing as it's grip is quite something. Not quite an Elise but not far from it and on a economy budget! Brabus Wheels look nice but buckle VERY easily. I drove mine round with other wheels instead, keeping the Brabus wheels for show only! Interior is equipped with ALL the toys. Air con, optional cruise/speed limiter, optional computer, Brabus hand made trim (very expensive). MPG 55 is easy to achieve. Worst mileage on the roads probably 45mpg. On the track (Cadwell) it managed 26mpg...it takes a track to get it that low! This car is the next best thing to owning a Lotus Elise. Much cheaper to own, run, and insure. 700cc it maybe, but you'd never know, drives more like a 1600!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Low insurance, good looks, great handling

Cons: Air con pipes break, Mercedes dealers are expensive

Review Smart — Love this car very much. It is very durable and comfortable. Very handy for gettng into those difficult parking spaces. Because it is so small it uses less water to wash the car, so good for the environment also. The designs are very trendy. They do not consume that much petrol, so that is good both for you and the environment.

Pros: Positive

Cons: Non

The Car That The Spitfire Should Have Been. — I got this car ten years after selling my last Spitfire. It drives better, has better performance, is better built, has better fuel economy. In fact wipes the floor with the Spits. But... it has the same "fun factor", in spades!

Pros: Fun, economy, rarity, Mercedes.

Cons: Leaks ( a tad ;-)), Aircon fails on a regular basis.
