Forum: c453 - General discussions relating to the fortwo

A Forum dedicated to the smart fortwo (c453 model) - 2014 onwards

  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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!

  7. Question Smart Media System / Mirrorlink

    Hi folks - got myself a 2016 forfour and was wondering if anyone has managed to get mirrorlink to work - according to the manual there should be a mirrorlink app in the services section of the menu (in the car) but I dont have it - just the usual tomtom live options. Any ideas? Tried a couple...

  9. Braking instability among other issues?

    Proxy 0.9 Turbo DCT 2016 3525 miles. Ever since I got this bloody thing I have always noticed that under 50% or more braking at 50-60MPH+ the rear end gets so titchy and light. There has been a number of occasions when I've had to slam my brakes and the rear end is seriously about to slide out,...

  10. DAB option / upgrade

    I'm not (yet) the owner of a 453 but I'm hoping to get one (a forfour) in the near future (or at least, before they stop making the petrol models next year) but I've noticed that most 453s do not have the DAB option. Where it does, it can be - it seems - implemented with either the touch screen...

    Anyone else with a new-style Smart-for-Two having problems with getting the fuel gauge to register the petrol tank as full. I'm really pleased with my new Cabrio in most respects, but it doesn't matter how careful and persistent I am at the petrol pump, I can usually only get the fuel gauge to show...

  19. Handbrake warning light flicker

    Dash Handbrake warning light flickering.... quite random. I’m guessing first port of call will be a duff hand brake switch , I only noticed it this morning whilst sitting in the car (fully handbraked obviously with engine running) waiting for someone. It’s still under warranty , so no big...
