Just found this website following buying an SMAX. Thought I would introduce myself. I work seasonally in France, in a ski.area in winter and a cycling walking area in summer.
The SMAX was in my hit list to buy after some clients hired one. I thought they were brilliant. I am not disappointed although will be starting a separate thread on a problem that has arisen with mine. It's not an all singing version but is the 2.2 diesel titanium. Comfort speed etc are brilliant although I had an Omega before which sounded better - six cylinder!
Anyway, hopefully I will be able to stay away from the problem pages!,
