    I was going to order a new c500 lowrider 3g, but after seeing this maybe I'll wait a bit...

    More info from Permobil:

    "Seatheight is 45 cm, seatplate, with a 35 cm elevator, 50? tilt, and 45? anterior tilt! This features is unique, and never seen before. Speed : 12km/h. All wheel individual suspension. And digital feedback on all powerfunctions."

    No replacement for a lowrider I think, as the seat height is 45cm...

    edit; more information:

    "Permo lock c3. Lowrider might be introduced later, but not in the near future."

    Keeping it clean will not be easy. So many nooks and crannies to catch dirt with difficult access to clean.

    I would wait for at least a year before ordering one, so they have time to find and change what's not working. Usually a good idea for a new model of anything. 410 lbs w/batteries and up to 7.5 mph. Appears to have a more stable lifting mechanism.
    Does look good.

    One thing I hate on my C500 is the drive wheels are held on with one single nut. Heard a rattling noise inside my wheel like a stone inside a hubcap.
    When I had a chance to look down, noticed the outside of my tire was a a couple inches past my fender and was almost off.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
