Forum: c453 - General discussions relating to the fortwo

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

  1. 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...

  4. 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?

  5. 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)....

  6. 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?

  7. Cheap Android phone for Android Auto

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...

  9. 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...

  11. 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.

  13. 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...

  14. 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.

  17. 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...
