@  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.

Hello everyone, this is my first post here and I have bought my first smart car about a week ago. I need to get a trailer hitch for it so I can carry my bike around with me. the only hitch I can find is part #11020. This hitch is only for 2008-2010. how different are the models from these years? I am not opposed to cutting and re-welding the hitch if I have to if it is only minor alterations. I just don't want to purchase something that is radically different or it be something I cant use at all. Any advice would help me out a lot.

Hi there, welcome to the club! Bil (Bilgladstone) has a hitch that will work for you 2006 Smart (450). I made one a while back and costed about $60 in parts, not very hard, but to be honest, Bil's is much nicer. All the info needed to build one is found on this forum! I will try to dig through some of my notes and see if I can pull up what I did for you :) http://clubsmartcar....mp;#entry312852 Good Luck! BTW, I don't think the 2008+ one will fit your car Izzy

I thought the old SCU hitch was the best, till you came out with this new kit Bil.

I have a hitch on two of my smart cars. They work fine but they are not Bills. I wish I had Bills but I already cut a hole in my rear panels so I am stickin with them. Get in touch with Bill and do it right. We don't use ours for a bike rack but actually pull a 535 pound +- tent trailer. Some pics from our last weekend camping trip.
