I bought them all but left one for my fellow FWers.

Off to eBay!

In for the Lulz

Dangit, just bought an SLS last week.

Good deal, free car for the wife.

She'll be your ex-wife...

i rather be caught dead than in one of those things

Thanks, OP, in for two. The Smarts will make great stocking stuffers for the kids!

This is a joke? Purchasing a 200k car with great handling and you get a 14k car with horrible handling and a chance to be smashed in a car accident.

MSRP from $189,600. That should cover most of us here on FW, eh?

Pricing

high chance you will be caught dead driving one of those things, in the literal sense

They have 3 SLS AMG in stock, cheapest is $206145

Hilarious!

Are you current on her life insurance payments?

On the other hand, if you are in the market for a Benz, know that MB is trying to outsell BMW right now, so they have a huge unadvertised rebate program going on. Many dealers will let you take anywhere from $5k to $25k off a new 2012/2013 Benz without even trying. This is going on till the end of the month. MB and BMW are in race to take the "most luxury vehicle sold" title.

Just last week I was offered $20k off a new GL without even trying to negotiate. $20k off a $75k vehicle is a great deal. I bet the discount is even higher on the $200k SLS. Even without a higher discount, $20k off a SLS would still be a better deal than taking the free "smart" car.

Finally!!! Have been waiting for a deal like this for a long time..

Any promo codes or rebates to sweeten deal, and cover for travel to KS if not local?
Any per customer limits? eBay motor site could get busy if no limits


It would be a deal if they gave out two Smart cars for every purchase....to use as rollerskates.

*Edit: LOL at getting red. Must be a butthurt Smart owner.*

CashBack? Discover?

I'm sure with an SLS you can find a new one.

Now I see how to spend those Visa gift cards from Staples. Give me two.

Shipping kills the deal

On second thought, give me six.

4:58 for conclusion.

Buying smart and SLS together for additional save on insurance?
Great idea!

Do you have any more details on the rebate? Sounds pretty intriguing.

Nah. More like something for the Dog (to pee on)

I find that hard to believe. The last I checked, the average rebate is few thousand dollars.

Yeah, at 70 MPH into a wall is exactly the type of accident you'd expect to have in that little car and a fair test to be sure. FWIW that's the Euro version of the Smart and I think it has far less safety features than USA ones. In any case, I'd drive the SLS and let someone else take the Smart....but only because I know buying an SLS is purely a fantasy for me and many others here.

It does sound like it is pretty close.

I wish...

You will end up driving this smart.

No HDMI & 3D, pass...

Dang! Amazon won't match the offer.

In for 2!

bugsie said:    FWIW that's the Euro version of the Smart and I think it has far less safety features than USA ones.

Sorry to burst your bubble here but itīs actually the other way around. The Euro crash test standard is WAY harder to pass than a US one. In fact they build way more stable cars for the (Western) Europe than for US. That also explain the usually much higher prices of the cars bought in Europe. If it was in Eastern Europe I would agree but Western European cars (especially German ones like Smart, Mecedes, BMW, Audi and Volkswagen) have to be built more stable.
I know this from professionally driving German cars in Germany and the US (I travel between both countries a lot). I donīt do that anymore but I did it until two years ago.

Is there a FW Cash Back?

It doubles as a loaner can when your cars in for a recall.
