@  Mike T : (27 July 2016 - 06:53 PM) good plan
@  Surturiel : (27 July 2016 - 05:52 PM) I'm going to pay Eddie a visit, get that flash happening, and put some wider shoes
@  Mike T : (25 July 2016 - 10:05 PM) Good!
@  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!

My wife took the smart into the local mechanic for the B service, and the guy tried to turn off the "need service wrench" thing using the code reader and couldn't. He said it might be a combination of actions that turns it off (like hitting the breaks four times while starting, whatever). First, how do you turn it off.Now my second issue, when he tried to turn off the wrench, and after I tried a few combination after we left, the car's odometer increased 1000km!! We went in at 69,568 and left at 70,573! Ever hear of that happening?Update: found out how to turn off the service wrench doing a google search...its not particularly easy to accomplish. Still don't know why it reset the mileage an extra thousand km.

Thanks to your numb-nuts indie mechanic, you just lost 1000 km of warranty....The procedure is well described in this forum and the OBDII port is not used for that. Just the button on the instrument pod and the starter key.

Yeah, that's what I suggested to my wife. She doesn't think so, they recorded the mileage when she brought it in, and they only had three hours to play with the car.

Thanks to your numb-nuts indie mechanic, you just lost 1000 km of warranty....

The procedure is well described in this forum and the OBDII port is not used for that. Just the button on the instrument pod and the starter key.

We're way beyond the warranty. You'd think the odometer would be a protected area you can't mess with, funny how we managed it.
