    The interior is ok could do with a little clean up. My brother did valeting for 20yrs and he said that he hated wet vacing the Smarts because the seats would just hold water because of the foam.

    If you open the fuel flap it'll say in there. Do you have a handbook for the car?

    If you open the fuel flap it will tell you the wrong info.
    In 2003 the recommended tyre pressures were changed by Smart to 29PSI all round after issues with front tyre beads not correctly bonding to the rim and causing air loss.

    All 450s & Roadsters built 1999-2007.
    May apply to crossblade also but I am not certain.

    I understood that the pressures changed on 700cc cars as the esp fitted could deal with rapid movements better than trust plus ever could, the lower pressures meaning the tyre would give more understeer. I'm more than happy to be proved wrong though.

    Not what I was told by Smart of Basingstoke. They apparently had an internal technical document from Smart HQ advising that ALL 450s should be changed to 29psi all round due to tyre beading issues predominantly on the skinny front wheels with 135/145 tyres.
