  1. Old inventory. Brand new in the box. 5.5x15 ET22. Retail $332.95. Will sell it at cost.
  2. With the cost of fuel, inflation, and the lack of car supply in general. Used smart cars has gain popularity; and the value is much higher then pre-covid. Over the years. People who were selling their cars often refer the the purchaser that their car was service and maintain by us. This usually gain a lot of trust from the purchaser. Since they may had visited Club Smart car for reference. But seldom the purchaser will contact us with the seller's name and the VIN to confirm the fact. These days. Many sellers (including used car dealers) use this to their advantage. Our experience include. While some cars may had been here only once or twice in their life. Others may had been here before. But we have not worked on it for 2 or more years. While some had only been here for trouble shoot; but the actual repair was done elsewhere. Some has been here for regular maintenance. But always deny major repairs. Some has purchase many parts from us; but we had never seen the car. You get the picture. While some is true to the heart that the car has not been to anywhere else since purchased new for 10-15+ years. Our advise is. If the seller claim the car was maintained by our establishment. Have them show you prove of receipts. Otherwise, contact us to confirm before you close the deal. It will be too late once you made the purchase then encounter problems and come to us and find out that wasn't the case.
  3. Cash Only! No credit card or e-Transfer. In house install only. 450 cdi remap $250. 450 cruise control install and activation $250. (while supply last) One day only. From 9:00am to 5:00pm. By appointment.
  4. For about a year or so. There was a panic of many parts are being back ordered or discontinue. from all car manufactures. With a lot of hard work. We found a small supply for some of the common parts for smart cars. We are glad to say we have a small quantity of the following parts: -450 cdi clutch -450 cdi clutch actuator -451 fuel pump -450-, 451, and 453 winter tires While supply last.
  5. We were able to get our hands on a small batch of winter tires for 450. Get them while supply last. This year is worst then any previous years for tire supply. Don't expect to have choices of make and models.
  6. Often people comes from afar for us to work on their cars. But this couple have a real interesting story. Have you imagine travelling around the world in a smart car? They had travelled upwards of 20,000 miles in 59 days throughout EurAsia. Check out their YouTube channel.
  7. We like to apologize for the inconvenience it may cause for the situation we have in our area. If you haven't ready the news and weather forecast. We have very limited supplies in and out of the Greater Vancouver area. Unless you are willing to pay for the extra cost of flying it out of the city, Otherwise all ground transport has been halt since the first event took place 2 weeks ago, FedEx and Canada Post told us their warehouses are full and will not be picking up until further notice. In some cases, we have flown in the goods for local use.
  8. If we pay attention to the news in recent months. There is a shortage of parts for cars from many different reasons. But for the immediate season. Tires for the special sizes of smart cars are becoming scares. We have brought in a small amount to cover all model years. Include all-weather and snow tires. We don't expect to have them stay around for very long.
  9. The Vredestein Quadtrac is a all-weather tire. (Not a all-season tire) It is winter approved with the snow flake mountain marking on it. Flying Tiger carries all the sizes for all the models of smart cars sold in North America. That's include: 450, 451, and 453. It is a quiet, comfortable, and grippy tire for dry, wet, and snow condition. For more extreme weather. We carries several different models of snow tires as well. Contact us for your special tire size needs.
  10. We have very good inventory of used and rebuild parts. Give us a try on those discontinued items. We are also slowly expending the coverage of rebuilt parts. And of course, we can get anything new that is still available.
  11. For your protection and ease of mine. Members of Flying Tiger Development has taken the first shot available for COVID-19. Let's do our part!
  12. We have several used ones available for additional storage.
  13. Due the the unstable climate around the world in the past year. Imported part prices are very unpredictable. Some may have a surprise increase of up to 50%. Shipping and availability are probably part of the attribute. So we like to apologize in advance for any price quote can be uphold only at the time of quotation. Price listed on our online shop may not be accurate at the date of purchase. We will try to accommodate within reasons. Even if we are not making a profit. But we will not honour a sale at a lost. We hope this situation will change in the not too far future. Thank you for your understanding.
  14. Over 15 years since the first smart landed in Canada. Even longer when I was at the launched in Frankfurt. Several models was introduced in many limited configurations were sold. Like many iconic vehicles. Austin mini, Volkswagen Beetle, Toyota AE86, Mercedes-Benz 300SL gullwing, Porsche 911. These original models are destine to be a collector car someday. For those who have the means to keep some of these vehicles in pristine condition even with high mileage. Someday their decedents could own a piece of history. Flying Tiger have the ability to help you up keep your modern classic smart car into a future collector car. Restore your smart car now before some parts maybe discontinued forever.
  15. Brand new in the box.
