  3. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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. Says that Smart only sold 4022 new cars in 2019 which is a bit of a shame.

  9. 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...

  11. 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?
