@  steveyfrac : (25 May 2016 - 04:49 PM) I'm not sure if I'd go that route, even if it is available, but it'll be interesting to test drive anyways
@  Mike T : (25 May 2016 - 04:00 PM) yes that too would be nuts.
@  Huronlad : (25 May 2016 - 04:59 AM) Hopefully what smart USA has stated about the sport suspension is not accurate for Canada.
@  Huronlad : (25 May 2016 - 04:52 AM) I should have clarified that smart USA is hinting that a pseudo BRABUS will come to the US.  Without the tuned drivetrain, there really would be no reason not to have both transmissions available in this market.
@  Mike T : (24 May 2016 - 08:34 PM) We're getting a BRABUS? And only with the slightly slower accelerating 6 speed auto?? Bizarre.
@  steveyfrac : (24 May 2016 - 07:52 PM) Source on the Sport not being available with the 5spd?

It'll let you configure it that way on the website, and I got a sales guy saying he's got one on the boat that I can test drive in a few weeks...
@  dmoonen : (24 May 2016 - 12:53 PM) Ew
@  Huronlad : (24 May 2016 - 09:59 AM) The BRABUS will also not be available with the 5-speed.
@  Huronlad : (24 May 2016 - 09:41 AM) Sport suspension is not available with the 5-speed.
@  steveyfrac : (23 May 2016 - 07:34 PM) Has anyone test drive the new 2016 Smarts yet? With a stick?

Might consider a Passion / Prime with a stick and Sport package if it drives nice.
@  dmoonen : (18 May 2016 - 07:09 AM) Honestly if youve driven one its so well put together, the NA VR6 engine just amazing.
@  booneylander : (18 May 2016 - 03:42 AM) That's a beauty! I always wanted to TDI-swap one. Diesel AWD!
@  dmoonen : (16 May 2016 - 06:40 AM) Just bought a MK4 R32. . . dam the music the exhaust makes in addictive
@  Mike T : (14 May 2016 - 08:22 AM) HO-dor
@  Francesco : (13 May 2016 - 09:55 AM) TUL-sa
@  Mike T : (13 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) Hee hee
@  DrZaius : (13 May 2016 - 04:14 AM) oops I thought this was the search box
@  DrZaius : (13 May 2016 - 04:13 AM) tesla
@  Francesco : (12 May 2016 - 05:56 PM) Yawn
@  Francesco : (12 May 2016 - 09:39 AM) Anybody (our industrial or mechanical types) have a contact at AdaptAll? Need two small fittings but don't know where I can get them...

The other day, by the looks of it, an air filter fell out onto my feet? Does anyone have any idea if it is the cabin air filter or what it is? Also if it is important or how I can put it back? I looked but can't see where it goes? :o

If you look behind the pedals to the right there's a slot with a cover on it for the cabin air filter, open the cover and slide it back in.Hope this helps!

Wow, it's so much easier to change a 451 cabin filter than it is in a 450!

Many 450s came without the pollen filter, like my 2005 Pulse. I think it was an option selected by the buyer.B :sun:
