Forum: General smart topics

This forum should be used where your topic is "smart" related but not smart model specific (see dedicated Forums for each model below).

  1. Club Logo Sticky Thread Sticky: Photo issues on our Forum (and across the internet)

    For years Photobucket has been a great place to host photos to then embed into forums like ours. However, this has changed, and to be able to do this from Photobucket you now need to pay a $399 yearly fee. So, we're afraid you'll be seeing plenty of this 4265 from now on :angry::angry::angry:

  3. A few smart things for sale

    I have tried to post on the For Sale forum but the post has not been approved after 2 weeks. Have also sent message to the mods but no reply so I imagine nobody is monitoring things at the moment. Hope there are no objections to me mentioning this on the general forum. I am selling a Brabus alloy...
