@  jwight : (23 January 2015 - 07:48 AM) Chris, that's a good deal on the car. If I could get it into the States legally, I'd consider it.
@  SkydiverChris : (22 January 2015 - 02:58 PM) FYI everyone, I just put my Grandstyle up for sale in the classifieds. If it doesn't go with the car, I have a KWP2000 and a STAR computer that I won't need anymore.
@  2006 smarty : (21 January 2015 - 12:47 PM) found it....right in front of my face :)
@  2006 smarty : (21 January 2015 - 09:05 AM) does anyone know how i can find/search a previous topic (lowering engine) in the how-to 450 model forum?
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 03:47 PM) If it starts rubbing again, I'll be doing it outside in -15c tomorrow afternoon
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 03:46 PM) Nah, only the rear passenger tire. I think that the adjuster got too tight. I took it apart just now and loosened the adjuster to last me the rest of the week. New brakes and drums are arriving in the morning. If it doesn't start touching again, I'll do it this weekend
@  Mike T : (20 January 2015 - 07:25 AM) frozen HB cable?
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 06:14 AM) Mine's been running great after all the starting issues last year. I drove to work this morning though with my passenger brake rubbing. Boy was that drum warm when I got to work!
@  SkydiverChris : (20 January 2015 - 06:08 AM) Hey everyone, it's been a while! Hope everyone car is still running like a whistle!
@  Francesco : (10 January 2015 - 10:42 PM) Hehe

Was there ever an automatic lights sensor option available for the 450's? I ask because there is a forum member in a Portuguese smart's forum that has had two fortwo Brabus with this option, although I've never seen it or found any information about it.Cheers,

...and the DRL put all the exterior lights on, so it could be confused with "automatic lights".

...Unless the OP is talking about automatic dimming of high beams, that terribly feature that dims unpredictably and erratically, refusing to dim for the other car when it's on the outside of a curve, dims for reflective signs, comes back on bright when the other cars dims theirs, etc?

Nope. I'm really talking about an Automatic lights sensor, just like the 451. Do you know if it was ever fitted to the EU 450's?

Never.

Thanks Mike. He's has probably mistaken this with the Coming Home and DRL function.

Our DRL package does include a "coming home" function.
