    Hi looking to buy a new c453 and have a budget of £16,000. Can you recommend a petrol automatic version which fits that budget. Thanks.

  2. 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 wouldnít play, does this mean my head unit is not compatible with my iPhone XR?

  3. 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...

  4. Exhaust options 453 0.9/turbo

    So my exhaust failed unexpectedly (Iím still hoping that the dealer and/or smart will see the light and replace gratis - talks ongoing) On a 3.5 year old car with 33K on the clock, Iím not taking it sitting down that itís failed. The flexi pipe failed. ...

  5. Need new tyres

    Hi all. So I've covered enough miles in my ForTwo that the rears are very borderline illegal and need replacing (done circa 27,500 miles). The fronts look like new, which was the same with my Roadster, it used to do two rear sets to one front. Anyhow, just like the Roadster there seems to...

  6. Geely to take 50 per cent of smart

    Well just heard some news that Geely has bought a 50 percent stake in Daimler smart and will in future concentrate on purely electric smarts and will be made in china. So sad news for hambach workers who have been so loyal in the brand.

  7. 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. 453 (non Brabus) Remap

  10. 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...

  14. 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...

  15. 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...

  16. 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.

    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 wasnít a significant drain.

  18. 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.
