    Default New c453 budget of £16,000

    Hi looking to buy a new c453 and have a budget of £16,000. Can you recommend a petrol automatic version which fits that budget.

    Thanks.

    Well Iíve been on the Smart website and configured the car I want as follows...

    https://www.smart.com/uk/en/index/on...c-step=summary

    Comes to £ 16,955 OTR including 20% VAT. Iíve contacted my local main dealer in Jersey and they want £ 16,000 for it. Fits my budget perfectly.

    Iíve offered my existing Smart to my niece for £ 1,000.

    Can anyone tell me what brand and model tyres come with a new c453 Prime Sport Premium, and what are the tyre pressures?

    Mine wonít be delivered for a few months but would like a heads up. Also does anyone know if you can connect an iPhone XR or XS via Bluetooth.

    Thanks.

    Well ours is a couple of years old and not a Sport, but FWIW it has Michelin Green X Energy Saver tyres.

    Near as dammit. It was about 5 months since first reg (looking at the V5 that was 28/6/2016).
    Dealer's demonstrator, though they said it had actually been the car they used to go fetch rich people's Mercs from their houses for servicing, so it mainly got left on their drive all day. It was advertised with 4000 miles but when it turned up (it was from a different branch in the group) it only had 800 miles on it.
    So I'm pretty sure they are the OEM tyres.

    I presume new cars donít come with floor mats so it will be the first thing I buy. Iíve looked on eBay and I believe the official 453 Smart floor mats are part number...

    A45368085039J74

    As per this eBay listing...

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-S...-/111581025721

    I tried to get the official 451 ones for my 451 on eBay from Mercedes Benz but they use Parcelforce who werenít able to deliver to Jersey so I ended up with non official ones.

    If these are the right 453 ones Iíll get them from my local main dealer and in fact have already emailed them for a price.

    Heard back from the main dealer, the official floor mats are £ 37.97 inc 5% GST. Not going to order them until nearer the time.

    Iíve seen them here for £ 46.99 which includes a £ 4.99 delivery charge...

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-S...012296061#shId

    But youíre better off buying them from your local main dealer which shouldnít be much more than £ 43.39 inc VAT.

    The dealer took a deposit of £ 1000 on my credit card the other day and today I went in and paid the outstanding £ 15,000 in cash.

    They werenít keen on taking cash at first until I showed them bank transactions showing the cash withdrawals.

    I just wanted it paid off, didnít need finance and Iíve only got £ 1800 left in my bank account. They said I should expect delivery in March.

    They wanted £16,000 for it, you have paid £16,000 but still £1800 left, have I missed something?
