  1. I had missed you reply. Thank you! I'll check to see if they are still available
  2. Thank you Blaine. I'll check. Next time I'm in the car I will record it with the phone and post it. Cheers!
  3. Great. BTW, when running, I do hear a background buzzing sound. As if there is a fun in it or something. I did hit the eject button thinking someone might have left a CD/DVD in, but nothing came out. Is this common?
  4. FYI, I ended up buying a car at Silver Star Montreal, and they took care of everything for me (at no extra cost!) Considering how many more deals there are in Montreal compared to Ottawa, I guess this will end up being the way forward for me.
  5. Looks like my firmware is v12.23, which I believe is the latest, is I guess no update will be required. Thank you!
  6. Hey guys, Like the subject say... Do the floor mats from a 450 fit a 451? I found some in my area and need rubber mats for my new car
  7. BTW, I am looking for a place for new tires but also, to play musical chairs with my wheels. I am switching old for new and between cars and routing newer used winters on old frames... Hopefully I can find a place which not to expensive for mounting/balancing, etc.
  8. I need to get new rubber for my 2009 before I can sell it. I have send out for quotes online and get few replies (and tires seem to be much more than I had thought!) Do you guys have a go-to place in Ottawa?
  9. Hello all, This coming Thursday I will be picking up my 2015 Passion https://www.inventory.mercedes-benz.ca/inventory/certified-used-2015-smart-fortwo-coupe-fortwo-rear-wheel-drive-2-door-coupe-wmeej3ba9fk800272 This car is so different from my trusty 2009 entry model, I will probably be learning quite a few tricks as I re-discover a Smart car. Moonroof, seat warmers, assisted steering... Those are rather obvious, but the most intimidating is the Bosh Highline system (yes, I am an old f@rt) The first question is, given that it is a 2015, would the manual for the 2011 be the same? https://www.smartusa.com/resources/downloads/manuals/2011/high_line_radio_guide.pdf Do I need to even worry about all I've been reading re: updating firmware or the like? Also, any advise on using an iPhone with the system? If you'd like to point out other things I should know about this new (to me) car, PLEASE DO! Thanks in advance
  10. FYI, in the end I went to Montreal because there were so many more options available by doing just 200 Km. For the first time ever, I bought at a dealer and I have to say it was (so far) a very pleasant experience. I ended up with this guy: Certified Pre-Owned 2015 smart fortwo coupe fortwo 2-Door Coupe ... plus a set of used winters, for $9250. Warranty extended until July 2020 included. Now I have to call Troy who had graciously agreed to check out the first car I talked about, which now stays at the Ottawa dealer for someone else to worry about Thank you all for your thoughts and feedback! PS. I guess I better publish another thread in for sale soon Taking possession of the new smart next Thursday.
  11. Well, it looks like that one is now gone anyway. Thank you for the help!
  12. BTW, on a different league all together, but what do you make of this ad? http://www.luxuryautoimports.ca/certified/smart/2016-smart-fortwo-b47d27b70a0e0a3b77cdcf2a06184a71.htm I thought that the Passion trim would include things like seat warmers and cruise control, but by the looks of the ad/pics I am not too sure.
  13. That is correct. They have no clue what the car is. They actually have conflicting info from place to place. I think they used a template from another car for the ad. If their stupidity is my loss, I'd be with you on not dealing with them. However, if I do my research and due diligence and their ignorance benefits me, I will not argue
