  1. We won't be attending either, but wish you a very happy 50th anniversary and many more to come. Cheers!
  2. Not sure what you are looking for... do you have a 450 diesel or a 451 gas fortwo? As booneylander says, the 451s have a creep mode where the car will move forward slowly in the "D" mode even at idle (which is around 900 rpm for the 451.) Sounds like what you are describing.
  3. Sure you have the right car forum....?

  11. The OP asked a question; decision is up to him. Not sure what the vehicle inspection laws are in Canada but he can certainly research them prior to making a purchase decision. The Smart Madness kit is not road legal in California; other states will have different laws so in the US "road legal" varies by state law.
  12. There is a huge amount of information in this SCoA forum: http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f393/ Smart Madness sells a turbo kit: http://smartmadness.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=78_172_178&product_id=949
