  1. Hi all I have a set of 25mm lowering springs for sale, unused, still shiny and red... £50 set of 450 16" genuine Brabus wheels that are in need of a refurb, they are the diamond cut ones not the painted ones. The wheels have tyres but one rear tyre is totally shot and will need to be replaced. I have priced shipping within the UK and it comes to about £30, so im looking for £275 delivered.
  2. Today I installed an genuine arm rest to the drivers seat, most comfortable now.
  3. I was a little apprehensive but following advise I went for Avon ZZ5 205/40 rubber which is surprisingly compliant, yes the ride is a little harsher but it's certainly not jarring except over the deepest of holes which are usually seen and avoided. It is now also so much more stable and corners without going straight on.
  4. Apologies for the pic rotation, I'm not sure about these wheels...
  5. you like? they are the same design as 453 Brabus wheels. https://www.kunzmann.de/shop/en/tire-wheels/rims/brabus-16-17-inch-rim-set-genuine-smart-453-monoblock-ix-anthracite-high-sheen.htm
  6. New wheels arrived today, just ordered the new Avon ZZR 205/40/17 for them, being fitted Friday. Much excitement
  7. pics or it didnt happen @Chopper
  8. yep, one fitted to the rear is shot so I had already bought 2 replacements. they are in need of a refurb which is why I bought them, as a winter project, to polish them back up.
  9. The bidet (rear wash wipe lol) decided it was not going to spray fluid. So checked the level first... all good, then squirted and saw a puddle around the offside rear. So after ripping out the rear wheel arch liner and finding nothing I found out there is a connection of both hose and cables accessable from the rear light bulb access, remade the pipe connection and all was restored. I did however have the rear wheel off and thought I would try a brabus wheel... Looked really great but as the et is -1 they stick out at least 25mm at the front of the tyre. So it looks like there's a set of brabus 16" alloys up for sale soon, I'm gutted
  10. Good news fella. Hopefully a years trouble-free motoring lies ahead..
  11. Phase 2 complete... Just phase 3 to go, doors and tailgate
  12. hmm could the cause be the engine insulation issue

  14. Went to visit @tolsen today to see if he could activate my paddles, unfortunately this couldn't be don't but a big thanks Tolsen for trying to help a fellow smartie out. Very much appreciated :)
