  2. Question Smart-Media System: Android Auto and Apple Carplay coming?

    Hey all, I'm reading that the current models of the smart Media System includes (or may include) Android Auto, and some articles mention Carplay coming too. Can anybody confirm this, and maybe say if this is backward compatible somehow? I drove a loan 2017 and noticed the interface is...

  3. Smart Sales for 2019

    I was flicking through an Auto Express magazine just now in the Chinese and noticed this article which I've ripped out and photographed. https://i.imgur.com/Vd3m3MF.jpg Says that Smart only sold 4022 new cars in 2019 which is a bit of a shame.

  4. Stainless exhaust for a 453

    Not sure if I can post this here. I did try posting in the For Sale section, but I can't see the thread and haven't had any notifications, also the For Sale section seems to say the last post was April 2018!! So maybe that area doesn't work? _________________________________ I have recently...

  5. Maintenance query (technical)

    Car is just coming up to 3 years old so decided I would look at doing some maintenance myself now. It probably needs new front discs and pads, and I think the battery is a bit suspect. For the brakes, euro car parts seem to sell Brembo parts which should be OK? Are there any special requirements...

  7. Fabric skin on solid 453 roof ..whats that all about?

    Just seems daft that the roof of one I was looking at had this naff fabric that is bound to degrade. What is its purpose & reasoning?

  8. 453 buyer

    I'm looking to move into a 453 later this this year. I'm a low mileage user so will likely go 1.0 rather than the turbo - I've driven both flavours and didn't think the difference was enough to get excited over (I also have a Gen II Hayabusa, and most cars feel quite turgid after a blast on that)....

  9. 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?

  10. Cheap Android phone for Android Auto

    If like me you have an iPhone and don't want to switch to Android for Android Auto I recommend getting either a Samsung Galaxy S5 or Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini. Both can be had in good condition for about £ 50 on eBay. I have the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and paid £ 53.90 for it including delivery on...

    ABS and Traction Control Lights both came on at the same time. Any ideas what that means?

  12. Handbrake Lever (adjustment)

    Ok , so your handbrake lever is nearly vertical before the wheels are held ? It's badly adjusted. The official smart method to adjust is to get the back wheels off the ground and adjust as below until the wheels can no longer be hand turned, with two clicks of the handbrake lever selected, but...

  13. Question Retro Fitting Options

    I have been searching for a 453 for quite a while now but just can’t seem to find one with the spec I wanted along with the options. I have found a used 453 that has the spec I want except the Active Brake Assist and the Lane Keeping Assist options. Does anyone know if the “Active Brake Assist”...

  14. Smelling hot and eco score.

    I was just wondering if my car should smell hot after going up very steep hills. I would expect it to. However passenger the other day doesn't think it is normal. Proxy prem plus manual non turbo. Also what are people getting as their average eco score.
