  1. There is this site: https://www.smarttekinfo.com/SmartTek/index.jsp But you have to have a credit card with a billing address in the US.
  2. These are not standard OBD codes. They would be Smart specific.
  3. I have a pair of Philips H4 LED bulbs and ballasts on order. The LED bulbs are longer as they have cooling fins. Hopefully they will fit in the housing.
  4. The alarm wasn't consistently sounding the horn when engaged and it had started going off in the middle of the night. A wee bit of searching on the internet came up with the diagnosis: front service compartment cover not pushing the sensor pin far enough in. One solution is to fit a plastic rivet where the pin strikes on the cover. Still under warranty as it's not even a week in service yet so I didn't want to be drilling holes. I just fit a rubber vacuum cap with a 3/16 ball inside onto the sensor's pin. Sleeping much better now, thank goodness.
  5. Found this: https://app-453.secure.smart.com/app/#/choose Not sure it is operational yet. Will not bring up an actual log-in screen.
  6. Use less power as well, 35w vs 55w.
  7. ... but it is just an info app. No link to the car.
  8. Different name brings it up: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/smart-experienc-e/id1248183749?l=en&mt=8 You have to search for it using an iOS device. Search for: smart experience-e
  9. Having grown used to HID lighting, the H4 headlights are not inspiring. It's just a city car so I guess it isn't that much of an issue.
  10. I can't find the app for download on a Canadian accessible site.
  11. I've not driven a 452 ED but our 453 initially accelerates like a bat out of the usual place when it is not in eco-mode. Ours was fully charged on delivery and I had already mounted a proper charging station in the garage.
  12. We don't have set departure times. Would be nice to be able to "warm/cool" it before unplugging and leaving.
  13. Well, it was worth the wait. My wife loves it. It's quite a step up from a Smart CDi. Ours is black on black and it looks great, the colour really suits the 453 shape. Of course, there will be more work to keep it looking good. Such is the plight of the dark coloured car. The latest is that the delays were due to certification issues. Not sure I buy it as it is structurally identical to gas powered 453.
  14. It's finally in. We're picking it up this afternoon.
  15. No such luck here. Though we ordered in January we still have not received our car. Our first promised delivery date was in May, next June, then August and the last the first of September. The only good news is that it has finally arrived in Halifax. However, it is "being held through a campaign regarding certification and software updates for the Canadian market" and they have no idea when it will be released. I have got to say that if we didn't really want one, we would have cancelled our order long ago. I can only loosely call it "our" car as they were unable to provide several options we ordered as the plant was shutting down for the summer break and supplies were allowed to run low for the coming model year changes. Thank goodness they don't sell fresh fruit or medical supplies...
