@  Mike T : (30 June 2015 - 08:38 PM) Take 'em off and three are three bold holes plus a large round one. Best to think of them as Jodphurs
@  Surturiel : (30 June 2015 - 07:57 PM) question: is there a way to remove those hip inserts?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 June 2015 - 05:14 AM) And that's without mentioning that compared to many cars, there were very few 450s made, and it's now 8 years out of production
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 June 2015 - 05:12 AM) Well, I think you'll find it difficult to find ANY seat covers for a 450. There aren't a lot of offerings around
@  Surturiel : (29 June 2015 - 09:25 PM) on this topic, why is SO DAMN HARD to find leather seat covers for 450?
@  Surturiel : (29 June 2015 - 09:24 PM) sorry!
@  Mike T : (29 June 2015 - 09:19 PM) nor is it a leather seat!
@  Surturiel : (29 June 2015 - 07:52 PM) leather seat

@  LeoBarbosa : (22 June 2015 - 06:03 PM) Just a feedback, the rear struts were really easy to do. Thanks for the tips. Payed $120 for both sides, at the dealership, in Calgary, AB.
@  LeoBarbosa : (19 June 2015 - 07:08 AM) I ordered them on Wednesday. Will try as soon as they arrive. Thanks!
@  stickman007 : (19 June 2015 - 05:36 AM) There is a small spring clip on each end of the ball joint...just pop it off and it should slide out
@  LeoBarbosa : (18 June 2015 - 09:32 AM) Any idea how to replace the rear window struts? Any video?
@  randyzimmer : (17 June 2015 - 04:25 PM) got it, thanks!
@  dmoonen : (17 June 2015 - 03:41 PM) You have to message them as it's not a thread
@  randyzimmer : (17 June 2015 - 02:51 PM) I'm a member who hasn't been here in many years. I'm at the Classifieds and see I "You cannot reply to this topic" am locked out. Is there an easy explanation?
@  LeoBarbosa : (17 June 2015 - 12:05 PM) Thanks! The link is very helpful.

A Chinese Website Sold 300 Smart Cars In 90 Minutes

Travis Okulski

Smart cars are far from the fastest vehicles on the road. But they sure are flying out of one Chinese retailer.

According to China Daily, Chinese website Jingdong, in a joint venture with Smart owner Mercedes Benz, made 300 of a limited-edition, Pearl Gray Smart ForTwo available for sale on their site.

The cars sold out in 89 minutes.

What is even more amazing is that 17,200 people added the car to their watch lists, presumably so they could buy one when it became available.

Jingdong sold the 300 cars all across China, not just to wealthier areas, China Daily reports. Last year, China became Smart's third largest market with astounding 180 percent growth.

This method could very well be the future of automotive sales in China.

It will be interesting to see how this changes promotions in the future.

Glad they like 'em. This bodes well for the marque.
