  1. Smart Media System & iPhone XR

    Had a play with the Smart Media System this morning and successfully paired with my iPhone XR over Bluetooth. However when I tried to playback music it wouldn’t play, does this mean my head unit is not compatible with my iPhone XR?

  3. Ddt4all, get into your smart brains.

    Hi guys, back again here, out for a while, but low work season leaves me with extra free time so started to surf the internet and found a few news about our smarts. First is that you can find a nice spot to share stuff about 453 in facebook, search for smart 453 forum and you will start to go...

  4. GPS week number rollover

    I came across this accidently while looking around on Tomtom: From the site: "The GPS Week Number Rollover (WNRO) occurs every 19 years, with the next roll over taking place on 6 April 2019. Similar to odometers in older cars rolling over from 99,999 km to 0, the GPS WNRO is the resetting of the...

  5. Replacement discs and brakes?

    What sort of mileage would you expect the original discs and pads to last, roughly obviously. Also, anyone got the OEM part Nos so I can look up 3rd party options.

  6. Significant battery drain

    Is there any significant battery drain while the engine is switched off and in park. My 451 had a little immobilizer led that flashed every couple of seconds but this wasn’t a significant drain. I can’t see anything flashing in my new 453 and the light on the gear lever showing park switches off...

  8. Locking Wheel Nuts

    Does the 453 come with locking wheel nuts as standard? I've had an email from my dealer about a complimentary 30 day check and to leave the service book and locking wheel nuts on the passenger seat.

  13. Spotify

    Is it possible to play Spotify through the standard head unit in the 453? I presume you’d have to use Bluetooth. Can anyone shed some light?

  14. Anyone with a remapped 453?

    I know there are a few people offering these remaps. Claimed numbers seem to vary from 107bhp (I assume something similar to what a Brabus runs), to 118 and 121bhp are what I've seen. However I'm more curious on peoples experiences. Going from 89hp to 121hp is a BIG jump in power, both in...
