Never been tempted to blog, tweet or join any sort of forum or discussion online until now.


But in the time I have been on here I've:



Been alerted to a possible engine/gearbox rattle

Found out where to get cool sill protectors

Got the name of thebest polish to buy ready for my new Up!

Been reassured I've chosen the BEST colour


Come to the conclusion I definitely don't need the Turtle Wax Black Box




And, of course, found a such nice bunch of fellow Up! enthusiasts



So cheers
to you all and let's hope we can all Meet Up! one day!

I have to agree with you, already there is a mountain of
interesting and useful information on this forum (and very addictive it is
too).<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

Once a few more of us get our cars it would be cool to meet
up for a chat and to put a face to a user name. I know a lot of the Smart
owners do this quite regular, they also organise runs or meet for bowling ect.

What do other forum members think?

You need to be careful - before you know it, you'll be spending weekends in a field with your "internet friends" (like I do with one of my other VWs!!!)

Well, I'm sure there are some lovely campsites near you (in fact, I know there are) so if we get a weekend organised in your area, you could at least come over in the evenings!

Meets are a great idea but could I ask that folk put a rough location in their profile so we know where you are.....I'm in Ayrshire so a south-east meet is ano-no but I'm amazed how few scots are on here.

When I had a couple of smarts, we had a postcard sized banner/info sheet we could download and print to leave under the wiper of any other smart cars we spotted...really bolstered the forum and spread the word to the unknowing...is it an option anyone would like here ....? admin?

Privatedoc you dont happen to be on the Smartz forum? I was/am and we had Smartz stickers on our smarts, was great when people noticed you :D

Yeah Im amazed at how many scots are here :D especially so close to moi!! A central scot meet would be right up my street ^_^ I would finally get to see more Ups :)

Craig, yes I was on smartz for a while...had two fourfours and a roadster (wish I still did have the roadster) loved the way you always got a flash or a wave from other smarts!...

Like the info sheet idea. And it would be interesting to see stats on how many members are from Scotland, NE England etc etc
