    full throttle will deactivate the speed limiter function - on the 450 & 452 anyway (not sure about 451/454/453)

    If you have a 450 700cc then I guess you have a SAM unit and the Smart Cruise control stalk will work, but it has to be enabled via STAR by Smart or some other dealers.

    Basically any 450 Smart with a SAM unit will allow Cruise to be enabled if you buy the stalk.

    I got it fitted to my 450 Cdi (2007) eons ago and use it alot on the motorway.. alongwith PuddleShift which I hardly ever use.

    If I can convince the Mrs to take the smart instead of the A-class will print out the page I found, if its working (activated) then we'll be setting it up for the trip to silverstone early saturday morning. http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?/t...-control-help/

    don't know why it wouldn't be but no expectations till it is proven intact & working.

    Just to tie up the thread, yes, the cruise control worked!
    Wife loves its simplicity, runs well.

    Smarts own cruise control will only work in 450 models from 2003. For older models the only option is MDC.
    The MDC cruise control works fine in my 2002 Cabrio diesel. It wonít if it is incorrectly configured.

    Good Point to clarify then! (thanks) which made me look at my signature.
    Ours is a 2003.

    Ours is a 2003.

    700cc in 2003 equates to a Mk6, which equates to a "from 2003" rather than up an "to 2003" (The Mk5/Mk6-600cc/700cc changeover was in 2003)

    Waiting for Mercedes to scrutinise (based on the vin number) but it appears the cruise control /speed limiter was a factory fit not retrospectively put in.

    Car registered in late sept 2003 produced in july of that year. ..so city coupť mk _ *** ???. ..damning them for not opting for air con

    I keep thinking its a pure for some godforsaken reason.

    ***pending parental forum guidance

    Y'know I really need to pot a pic for you experts

    Mostly correct but you are one mark out.
    Mark 6 came early 2002 and mark 7 came early 2003. Smart's own cruise control will only fit models with the 700 cc engine. However, Evil indicates Smart's cruise control will work provided an extra wire loom is fitted.

    Memory fades and Iíd had a beer , I remember buying my (1st smart) brand new mk5 on a 52 plate, then I traded in for a mk6 six months later

    Or was it a mk6, then I bought the mk7 six months later

    I really canít remember much more than the 2nd car was bought six months later at a trade in cost of just £500

    Or was it a grand ?

    I think I remember I liked the perforation holes in the mk5 sun visors , then they took them out in the mk6 - the barstewards
