Went to work in this today. Access/egress not actually ideal for someone my size, as getting my right leg in was 'interestesting' but once in it was fine. I don't like the lack of visibility (but looking at it I think someone has sprayed or 'wrapped' over what I assume are rear side windows.

Anyhow it was a right laugh to drive and I got a few looks in it, not as much fun as the MX5 was but still great.

When I had the smart the Windows didn't have the wrap on them and I found you really needed those rear side windows with it being LHD.

The rear windows are made of plastic and I would mop them with a bit of fine compound and wax from time to time as they did dull and it brought them back up a treat

But if the Windows are now knackered though UV damage it shouldn't be expensive to change as they only pop out in less than a minute but make sure you buy some sealant and a mastic gun before doing so as that's one of the worse leak points on the smart and when I first bought it the car was like a swimming pool inside due to them leaking.
So if you end up taking them out lash as much sealant as you can underneath.

Right, as it's spending more time being a Garage Door Blocker than actually being used, is anyone interested in this for the original asking price? Could probably ROFFLE it if needed, though would prefer to see a straight sale. It's currently got a puncture, which obvs I'll try and sort before it goes.

It's not the tyre that Richard spent a fortune replacing was it? :?

I'm up for a roffle on this. Totally would like it, but wife would kill me if I bought another car. However if I "won" another one then I might just get away with it... Plus a Smart car and a Smart Roadster together on the drive is probably the same length as the Saab/Scenic/whatever other shit I've had on it.

How much did you want for it Billy? It is an itch I need to scratch, pending my trade insurance (the 'scratching stick') covering LHD.
