@  Surturiel : (25 July 2016 - 09:23 PM) sooo, I'm starting to mature the idea of driving from vancouver to Halifax...
@  Th3Guardian : (23 July 2016 - 03:55 PM) Wondering if anyone has a performance exhaust for a 451 in Ontario

@  BabyBenz : (23 July 2016 - 03:02 PM) Came across an interesting article about a Chinese auto manufacturer that cloned the Smart Fortwo - was sued for copyright infringement but the suit failed. 
@  smartzuuk : (21 July 2016 - 11:20 AM) no bites yet on the canada1.... it's still at 98,xxx kms with brand new tires and if someone is interested, let me know.... because if the Volvo goes first, the smart will come off the chopping block
@  Nigel : (19 July 2016 - 03:45 PM) Talk to Glenn smart142. I know he has been in contact with another welder about repairing stock mufflers.
@  Mike T : (19 July 2016 - 01:21 PM) Does Eddy in BC have a decent used one?
@  BabyBenz : (19 July 2016 - 12:44 PM) Trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on expensive muffler replacement at Mercedes or try and have an exhaust shop make a hopefully cheaper custom replacement.
@  Henry : (14 July 2016 - 03:13 PM) Carrot river is in north east Saskatchewan.
@  Henry : (14 July 2016 - 03:12 PM) Ya the cruise helps a lot. i have taken my smart as far east as Carrot river and as far south as palm springs. Quite comfy for the driver but the passenger doesn't get a reclining seat.
@  Mike T : (14 July 2016 - 06:29 AM) Yup. Top tip: Get cruise control, if you don't already have it.
@  Surturiel : (14 July 2016 - 06:09 AM) hmmm... So, just the usual (change oil, check everything), cram the car full of junk and head for 8 days of road?
@  smartzuuk : (14 July 2016 - 04:47 AM) It won't change things enough to matter... I've driven all the way from BC to Labrador and return on the stock wheels and tires....
@  Surturiel : (13 July 2016 - 11:48 PM) Should I put on wider wheels for the trip? would that make it more bearable? (roadster steelies+conti procontacts)
@  Mike T : (13 July 2016 - 06:18 PM) No problem. I did Toronto to Vancouver Island in 4 days!
@  Surturiel : (13 July 2016 - 05:01 PM) question: I *might* move from Vancouver to Halifax, and was thinking about driving all the way there with my 450. Stupid or REALLY stupid idea?
@  Surturiel : (13 July 2016 - 05:00 PM) hey, everyone
@  Mike T : (11 July 2016 - 08:10 PM) me too

Now I am confused. Another forum provided me with 3 X 112.5mm. Can someone verify which is correct? Thank you.Paul

Tirerack.com says 3x112 works. Does anyone have a list of the companies that make aftermarket wheels in that size?

While we're on the subject... are the wheel nuts 15 mm on the 451? I don't have any metric sockets; hence the question.

Yeah they are 15mm. I had to go out and buy a 1/2" Drive 15mm socket only to remove the wheels. It is best to change the lugnuts to a 17mm head size.

15 mm socket costs the same as a 17mm so don't understand the point of spending the $ to replace the lug bolts. Cheers,Cameron

Greater chance of scratching the wheels in the bolt holes with a wider socket too! No comprendio!
