You've found the perfect model, but not the right color. You've found the right color, but it's not the right model. This is a classic case of the Goldilocks. Thankfully, smart cars were designed specifically with personal customization in mind. From added accessories to custom paint jobs that would make MTV's "Pimp My Ride" envious, here's how the smart center can personalize your smart vehicle to make the porridge just right.

The smart Expressions program showcases what the smart car ownership experience is all about. With 14 interchangeable body panels all around your smart car, you can easily personalize each and every section of the exterior. Spend a few minutes playing with the smart Expressions Design Studio at and you'll see just how fun it is to customize your smart car. You can explore paint options and browse the vehicle wrap patterns that are readily available online. Notable vehicle wrap designs include plaid, racing stripes, camouflage, and even houndstooth. If you don't find the color you need, the smart center will gladly color match, so you can customize your car to match your favorite crayon, the color of your significant other's eyes, or even your favorite sports team when it comes time for game day. Pricing for paint jobs at the smart center start at $1700.

While the easily adaptable exterior offers endless possibilities, the interior features three package options that make the ride worth it. The Comfort Package adds a bit of luxury to your city car, with black leather seating, luggage compartment cover, and heated seats. This package is available for $940. The Technology Package ensures your next road trip goes off without a hitch, featuring a Navigation System and Surround Sound Audio for $1600. To add some sporty flavor inside and out, go for the $750 Style Package. This package includes three spoke alloy wheels, LED daytime running lamps, ambient interior lighting, and stylish dashboard gauges.

Another cool function exclusive to the smart car is the smart iPhone app and cradle kit. The downloadable smart iPhone app is available for just $10 at the app store. The app provides a central command center for your smart car. You can use the app to browse through your entire music collection, get instant access to web radio, or use the song recognition feature for songs you want more information about. The iPhone app also allows for easy hands free phone calling, a car finder function in case you forget where you parked, and access to roadside assistance. For the smart car electric drive, the app can monitor charging progress and can navigate you to the nearest charging station. For a little over $300, you can couple your smart iPhone app with the smart drive cradle kit. The kit is installed at an optimal location for ease of use and will be specially wired to deliver the best sound quality when plugging in your iPhone. It's also geared for automatic volume control, lowering the volume the instant voice prompts play through your iPhone or whenever you receive an incoming call.

By upgrading your smart car, you'll experience the true joy of owning a smart car. The easily interchangeable body panels give you the potential of driving like new whenever you feel like it. The available package options and iPhone app make sure you get the most out of your smart car. If you own or are looking to buy a smart car, take a moment to consider all the great customization options. After all personalization is what the smart car experience is all about.
