    I don't remember the trid but you showed me down I think the drivers side which looked very bad. Will it take long to correct?

    The paint is rock hard so yeah. the marring isn't an issue. Megs 83 and 80 seem to work best for me, fed up with menz polishes being so picky

    You're not alone.....seems Smart owner either have OCD or they're GAY.....I think the gay ones have more idea of real life to be honest
    I still wash ours in washing up liquid....it looks shiny, and it's cheap (as are the Tupperware panels that you cleaning! )
    Just done my Dub today...power-washer with washing-up liquid in the soap dispenser....should last 'til end of October at least.....maybe I'll wash the Smart before we go on 6 week holiday...but that's easy...1 bucket with soap and a sponge....done for this year then

    It's a BLOODY car.....NOT the "Love of your Life"....or at least, that's how it should be! Spend the time/money/effort on your partner....and have a HAPPY life.

    Seems a few new members are fellow detailers, schweet!
    Yup i'm mad on car cleaning. I have 3 cars to wash and then i do my aunty,mum friend,my mate and cousin cars.

    I spend 6-8 hours on the RS when doing full detailling and spend 4 hours on the Smart a week ago for its first session, then my mum PT Cruiser converitble gets 6-8 hour session when its goes to car shows .

    What a geezer ! Is this true?? I bought the smart (cos it had a folding roof) and then heard it said that the product was popular with shirt lifters! Bloody hell, worse than being described as a hairdresser's car!!!
