  1. Guys check out the facelift of the smart fortwo! Click
  2. The current one. Now In Europe is has a open filter system in the exhaust. On 1st of Oct it should be a closed one for better emissions, but they delayed it due to technical problems. They want to do more test in cold driving. I saw this on a german website.
  3. I don't understand why you don't get the wider tyres, like we have in Europe. We also get the same speedometer and display without coulant temp, like you have. The cdi with better emissions is delayed untill 2009 instead of oct 08. I don't know if you ever get the 451 cdi in USA/CA?
  4. Yes! They are not made of plastic anymore, now its a net.
  5. Prices in Europe will be little higher. New alloy's and colour. But i'm not sure if USA/CA will get this: Also check the doorpanel space thing, now its not plastic anymore: You can check the german smart configurator to see colours and little changes. www.smart.de
  6. It is true! The 09 model gets a new red colour, new alloys, no yellow, new grey colour. All the versions, except 84HP/45HP cdi will get the start/stop (MHD) system. Prices in Europe will be little higher. New alloy's and colour. But i'm not sure if USA/CA will get this: Also check the doorpanel space thing, now its not plastic anymore: Also lockable servicepanel in the front, isofix, and much more little things.
  7. About the doorpanel space: i thought they said it was made from soft/flexible/elastic material, so you can put larger things in it.
  8. Yes MHD is the start stop system. Nothing less, nothing more :-)
  9. And the downside is that the car uses more diesel with the closed filter. They say 0.5 liter more (3.8liter combined) In real drive this means about 4.8 combined.From the german forum i can add a few things:The service "flap" in the front of the car can be locked for the new modelyear. All the cars get the start/stop system, except the cdi.More usefull space in the doors, isofix standard.
  10. The 451 petrol and cdi both have EGR. The 450 petrol also had EGR from build 2004. (698cc engine)
  11. Smart should make a feature that you can swith the traction control off under 5 mile speed for example, that's still safe, but gives you the possibility to drive out of the snow.
  12. Change the oil.. in the front ?
  13. Hmm smart told me that the 451 has larger disc brakes in the front, cause of the heigher weight and more HP.
  14. The light blue one with the brown leather is the fortwo edition limited two. Imho the brown leather with the blue paint is not so nice.
  15. A little test: which car is the 452
