  1. Launch Control

    Tried the launch control, not lightning fast but if you need to have a head start at lights then it is well worth using it. :icon_smil

  2. Anyone own a Brabus Xclusive?

    We we went to a Mercedes sale event and got a good deal to upgrade our existing 2016 White Edition to a 2018 Brabus Xclusive with only 2000miles. Anyone on here with a Brabus optimised ForFour? We took it for a spin and seemed a lot more fun to drive, can definitely notice the Brabus...

  3. Just Joined.

    Hi, just joined today. Had my current forfour since Feburary. After having the old forfour 1.1 pulse for just over 10 years, which after 138,000 miles decided to start to play up on me. So a big wave to everyone from just South of Birmingham.

  6. Best thing about 453 for two

    The best thing i noticed after having four old model for twos in the 453 is having the battery access at the front instead of it being in passenger side which was a pain if needing to ever jump start and the new twin clutch gearbox in the turbo is so much better and offers seamless changes i also...

  13. Edition 1

    Hi smart fans, thinking of buying a used 15 plate edition 1 forfour and was wondering if there is much difference in headroom because of the panoramic sun roofs? . I've owned a forfour passion with no sun roof and head room was great in the front (I'm 6'4" by the way). Also what is included in...

  14. Smart once again let down by poor Mercedes Customer Service

    The Sat Nav on my Smart ForFour stopped working no screen display. I went into Smart/Mercedes Tamworth after some discussion between the reception and other members of staff. No one took the time to even briefly look at the car. Their suggestion was that I book the car in, the earliest date being...

  16. ESP Activation and Unstable at high speeds

    Hello Everyone, I just bought a 2015 W543 ForFour last week, maybe I am not used to Smarts, so I just want other users opinion. My ESP activates quite often while I am driving and brakes the car itself, I thought that would be because the rear tyres were already worn so I replace them for...

    Hi all, Not really looking to change my 451 Cabrio just at the moment, but when the time comes I quite fancy a 453 Forfour....Specifically, a 1.0 Passion in black with Cadmium Red panels, or all black. This model seems to have everything I would be looking for, but I would like the combined...

  20. Eco meter shift stopped working

    Hi all - you know the economy thing that tells you how good (or bad in my case) you drive at the end of the journey? Well the top two meters still work but the 'Shift' indicator is always zero. I could have sworn that there were little arrows that guide you to shift up and down in the main wheel...
