I ordered the CK3000 Evolution Parrot because it's so small an unobstrisive. I have it in my GMC Canyon and it works great there. I tried all sorts of BT devices and the Parrot is the one. I never have to worry about charging the battery, turning it on when I get in the car, turning it off when I leave, it's all automatic.
There is no wind buffetting or back breeze at all if you leave the back window up (the top is 2 piece, the top part unfolds at any speed like sunroof, the back unfolds only while stopped). If you fold the top completely, it blocks half your rear view and you get very mild breeze from the back, no real buffeting to speak of. Also, if you want the full convertible feel, you have to remove the bars above the doors. It's simple, push a release button, pull them off and there's a molded storage area inside the rear tailgate. You can't close the top with the bars removed.
I did my first drive to the office, 60 miles each way and I got 42.6mpg but I hope that goes up as the engine breaks in. I only drive in about once a month.
My kid came home from school this weekend and we weren't home and she's never seen the Smart. She didn't like it because everybody kept looking at her, haha! Also she didn't know what to expect from the transmission so it took her by surprise.
