  1. Bummer. Oh well, thanks for confirming.
  2. Read through the manual and can’t find it anywhere. Any option on a 451 Smart ForTwo to have the vehicle do a short beep when locking from the key fob?
  3. Excellent! So are you just looking through the front hood opening for this photo? Trying to orient the angle.
  4. Good read on this topic. OP, crazy you’ve gotten 100k km+ with such little maintenance. The 2013 ED I’m getting in soon has 30k miles already on it, and I hope to run it into the ground. Should round out my electric vehicle trio nicely.
  5. I just purchased a 2013 one in red earlier this week. When it arrives from a carrier (hopefully next week...?) I’ll take a look and see if I can find the speaker without having to tear too much things apart.
  6. Yeah in USA most EVs produce some sort of sound when below 20mph. Oddly my Tesla doesn’t. I know some VESS speakers are easily accessible like the one on the Fiat 500e. If anything I would just want to duct tape over it to make it slightly less obnoxious.
  7. Hey all, going to be picking up an old 2013/2014 Smart ED now that they’re hitting sub $5k on the used market for commuting purposes. I’ve test driven a few and they ride fine for the size, but I’ve noticed the virtual engine sound system is much much louder than on my i-MiEV or my past Ioniq electric. Annoyingly so. Anyone here know where the speaker for the VESS is located so I can access it and lower the volume manually?
