    Default SMART FORTWO 0.7 BRABUS Coupe ??

    Having had fun in the 450, "should I" be looking at the Brabus, if only for the Air con / heated seats found a 2007 0.7 Brabus with 57,000 on the clock.

    Thoughts from knowledgeable peoples here?

    Personally wouldn't bother but that's just my opinion

    Brabus 450 has the more resilient Roadster engine - so tends to suffer a lot less with needing rebuilds - so for that reason alone, I would personally recommend it.

    Thanks, the alternate i'm considering is a low mileage 1 litre 2012 SILVER SMART FORTWO PASSION AUTO with 19,000 miles on the clock. ultimately depends on prices. (non MHD, 115g filthy stinking pollution per km).

    The 450 Brabus will have more fun & personality - probably be more economical on fuel also and *might* start going up in value if you keep it long enough.


    But the 451 will be more reliable.
