  2. 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:

  1. Frustrated and crying !

    It's 7 weeks now since my 450 was taken out of action due to putting key fob through washer and dryer. New, Chinese made, fobs bought off eBay and also a Delphi box of tricks but unable to get it to recognise the fobs. No idea if new fobs working or not (checked batteries) ! Today decided to bite...

  2. Towing a 450 with a motorhome/ A frame- steering probs!

    Trying to tow my 02 450 on a braked a frame, the steering slaps from side to side enough to shake the towing vehicle. I have read that a bungee on the steering wheel can stop it but this is not treating the disease, only the symptoms. It is professionally fitted qaulity kit (car-a-tow) and fits...

  3. MoT Failure; High Lambda Reading

    This is not a question, but an answer, in case it helps anyone. It tries to bring together advice from various others sources that I have used in resolving a problem with my car. My Mk1 450 failed its MoT last week, with a very high lambda reading (as high as 1.15) All other emissions readings...

  4. Prospective buyer here.. is there a way to tell if oil consumption is high ?

    Hi, I am in the process of looking at second hand smart roadsters but they are mostly around the 70-80,000 mile mark. I made a comprehensive 5 page buying guide with the best bits from the buying guides and various forums. It seems like most problems can be spotted with a comprehensive check...

  5. 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...

  7. Leaving the Smart fold after 18 years

    After eighteen years of Smart ownership, the same Passion cabriolet, I unfortunately had to scrap the car yesterday. Despite only having covered 80k kilometres it had reached the stage of uneconomical repair. It was great being an early adopter and meeting folks at the early Herts pub meeting,...
