  2. Need help to remove a bit of trim

    Hello everybody, I have bought 'Urban Arches' for my 453, but I can't fit them due to needing a small piece of trim removed on the rear wheel arches on both sides of the car. If you have a look at the photos below, they show the trim quite clearly from a few angles. There are 3 wee clips on...

  4. Exterior door panel removal help?

    Does anyone have any links or a guide on how to replace the exterior panel on a 453? (there are a couple on older models, albeit not very good on Youtube but none for the 453 ). I've been quoted 2 hrs labour.

  5. 453 niggles Ė anyone else?

    So, Iíve had my ForTwo (c453) for over a year now. And mostly only positive thoughts on it. I have encountered a couple of niggles and wondered if others had encountered the same. 1. The windows mist up a lot. This morning in a bit of rain was a good example, leaving the AC on auto...

  6. 453 (non Brabus) Remap

    Hi all, Had a look about to see if anyone else had posted but not really found the answer. I have a 453 Sport Premium Turbo DCT I'd like to get remapped, I got a quote from Celtic Tuning and wondered if anyone has used them for this purpose before? Living in the North East I don't want to...

  7. Tyre time...

    Need some new tyres in the next month or so. I have the Prime Sport with 16Ē wheels. Are there any other options than the oem Continentals? Seems most other brands either the front size OR the rear, but not both. Also, anyone found any all weather tyres? Winter I can find.

  9. A question for our more advanced smart insiders regarding the smart media-system

    I know we have some smarties that have access to information us lay-people don't have, and asking our local smart dealer doesn't really help, so I'm relying on the kindness of strangers to answer this pretty specific Apple → smart Media-System question I bought a demo late 2016 ForTwo with the...

  10. 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...

  11. Unhappy A little eco-irony (Eco-Score versus Cruise Control)

    I found a delicious irony in the interaction between the Cruise Control function and the Eco-Score meter. Say you set your car Cruise control to 120km/h, but due to traffic, you slow down to 110 km/h. Cruise control smartly disengages until youíre ready again. The road opens up again, so you...

    Anyone else have a problem with distortion ... not particularly on loud passages I'm becoming more certain it's on the DSP side of things , not the actual speakers ....

  15. Start / stop never really works

    Hi all, How is everyone's Start / Stop? I do about 10 miles a day to / from work, and it never kicks in. If I do the odd 100 mile journey, towards the end, it might kick in once, but then not again. I've recently had the first service, and like a fool completely forgot to mention this to...

  18. Manual vs auto comparison

    So I bought my 5 speed manual ForTwo in the summer. Itís just been in for its first service and I had an auto as a loan car. Which gave me the chance to perform a direct comparison. Iím also an (ex) Roadster owner. So familiar with past smart offerings. Overall I was impressed with several...

  20. Gaiter on gear stick.

    I have already added the brabus handbrake and gearstick. Wondering if anyone has changed the gearstick gaiter. Mine is looking slightly worn and cheap looking!
