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. Electric Smart Test Drive

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Hello folks I have just acquired another Smart. I think it is a fairly rare model. Ferrari corsa red with black wheels look really well I think. Sean.

    Hi, anyone had this problem before? The button on the gear stick clicks so don't think it is that. I spoke to mercedes and they said it may be a gearbox reprogramming. Any one come across this before? many thanks in advance for your help.
