@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 08:29 PM) That's good to hear, its half off right now at $282.09 Canadian so I'm thinking of just ordering it.
@  Mike T : (13 December 2014 - 08:17 PM) It's the only decent cruise that was available for the 451 in the first years.
@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 07:32 PM) does anyone have experience with this cruise control? http://www.smartiepa...e=index&cPath=1
@  FlossyTheSmart : (10 December 2014 - 11:30 AM) If anyone ever happens across a dead attachment (The file doesn't exist when you go to download it), let me know the link to the file. Generally you'll encounter dead attachments in posts older than 2007. The dead links are raising some (false) red flags for me on some things, and it's kind of annoying, so I've been making sure to edit the links away as I find them. The files are typically gone for good.

@  mowser : (07 December 2014 - 10:10 AM) oil filter for the 450
@  dmoonen : (04 December 2014 - 12:42 PM) Yeah you kinda craped out maybe check out some wreckers and see what they have.
@  LeoBarbosa : (04 December 2014 - 12:12 PM) I have seen many wrapped, but you have to be responsible for what you sell. If many people have had the same problem in one specific colour, it is a production problem. I have this problem, but the other colours don't. Is it my lottery ticket? LOL I am looking for used panels now.
@  KyotoCar : (04 December 2014 - 12:07 PM) What's the cheapest option for replacing a turbo for a 2005 smart?
@  KyotoCar : (04 December 2014 - 12:03 PM) cheapest option for replacing turbo
@  dmoonen : (04 December 2014 - 10:38 AM) Personally my friend from Cali just wrapped his a satin red color which looks pretty cool
@  dmoonen : (04 December 2014 - 10:37 AM) Yeah it seems to be a common problem and your SOL. Just keep fighting and see where it gets you
@  LeoBarbosa : (04 December 2014 - 10:16 AM) Mercedes-Benz Canada just refused to fix the Clear coat peeling off from my RED RALLY 2009 Smart. Feeling idiot. :(
@  dmoonen : (04 December 2014 - 09:42 AM) Add some nose bears to the side and your good to go lol
@  Mike T : (04 December 2014 - 09:26 AM) 4 stars is very good and better than either the 450 or 451....the test was made a lot more difficult recently.
@  dmoonen : (04 December 2014 - 08:06 AM) The comments is where it's sketchy "pole extreamly close to striking the head". Seems they're planing updates for the MK2 version allready
@  FlossyTheSmart : (04 December 2014 - 07:55 AM) The results aren't exactly horrible, being 4/5 stars. Side impact results are a little worrisome though. Supposed to be improvements by March or something though, so :dunno:
@  dmoonen : (04 December 2014 - 07:32 AM) Did anyone check out the euroncap crash test for the new smart apperently is horrible. http://www.euroncap....fortwo/579.aspx

It's the one I've been waiting for and it's right here in front of me but ... oh well ... I simply cannot justify the expenditure right now. They don't make this one anymore! On offer is an immaculate, very lightly used folding tent trailer. Complete with tonneau weather cover, screened "add-a-room" and front stowage bin..

Specs: "Original Cycle Model"
base weight: 230lb / 105kg
trailer size: /closed - 48"x66"/open - 48"x132"
Bed size: 48"x81"
Tires: 4.8x8
Hitch: 1-7/8 ball
Wiring: 4-flat plug
Headroom: 6'4"
Bed length: 6'9"
Storage: 26cu.ft.
Tongue weight: 23lbs!!!

OK, you lucky so-and-so, you... This is your unique chance to get hold of an outstanding, roomy, comfortable and well-made camping kit for your smart car. Made by Penticton, BC's Leesure-Lite you can see a video HERE [The tent material on this one is burgundy instead of green like the one in the vid.]

I was thinking I might buy it and when I'm not using it, rent it to smart and biker friends... :dunno: I mean, I want it - it's the one I've been searching for for 2 years - but... :penniless:

Hey, throw me fuel expenses and a grilled cheese sandwich, and I'll even deliver it to you in AB or BC!

Oh and... it's in an RV dealer showroom and won't last. Add applicable taxes... But maybe he can be dickered down on the price...

Bil :sun:

Addendum: I forgot to mention this unit is at Country RV, Kelowna. Talk to Al Martin and tell him Bil the smart car guy sent you.

Only in my dreams, Steve :) The RV place must have taken it in part trade for big -class or something. The sign on it says 2999 but you know they probably gave squat for it so... maybe a cash lowball would take it

All it needs now is a sink, ;) it does look really nice though.BTW Bil, I may have a guy interested in all my trailer stuff I never got to make,most of it never even got unpacked. We will see if it sells.I think you and I are looking for the same sort of trailer now for our smarts, but we are also a little strapped <_<

I was surprised to see in the video that the little girl rides in the closed-up trailer. I guess that's to demonstrate how safe and strong the unit is. :o :) :icon_wink:

No that is the way to take the kids camping, Cam. The smart (or a bike) only has two seats so you pack the kids in the trailer.

Man, I am jonesing on this wee camping kit!
