  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:

  2. with smart going electric only from 2019, will your next car be a smart?

    Had a test drive of a couple of forfour autos yesterday (both 71 and 90hp versions) at Mercedes Manchester. Very impressed with them, even the 71 felt nippy around town and was adequate on the M60, but maybe I'm just used to a lack of power having driven a 71hp 451 for 10 years and plan overtaking...

  4. Exclamation Smart Engine Services UK.. Help urgently needed

    3 months ago, my Smart City Pure was collected and taken to Christopher Green at Smart Engine Services. I was told it was being taken to Sowerby Bridge for a rebuild.

  6. Seatbelts?

    I was wondering if anyone had changed their seatbelts for another colour? If so who did you use and how much did it cost? I've got a brabus 451 and fancied some red belts to brighten up the interior.

  9. Car insurance

    Yes, it's that time of year for me. My renewal came through from Admiral at just over 220. Not too bad, but just for reference I thought I'd try a few places. Not gone on the comparision sites yet, just tried smart's own insurance for starters. I have 12+ years NCB, drive less than average...
