"Rumor (and that's all it is at this point...) is there will be a 453 BRABUS with over 100 hp, plus the usual BRABUS add ons.  Whether we'll see it in North America is another question. "

"Glad you mentioned the 5-speed.  The smart clutch pedal trans has 5 gears where the DCT has 6, another advantage IMHO.  The 450s have 6-speeds and I've always felt the 451s could really use that extra gear.  smart got it right…"

"Oh well, if that turns out to be the case I may need to consider the Ford Fiesta SFE with the 3 cylinder turbo and only comes with the 5-speed manual."

"About 7% of cars that offer the manual as an option are sold with one in the US.  That's really not much on the desire scale, and the younger demographic that seems to be the target for the 453 isn't learning to drive manual…"

Link to type 453 launch both fortwo and forfour.  I really hope the 900cc turbo with a 5-speed manual is available in the USA when the new model makes it here.  If only the 6-speed automatic make it across the pond then I will stick with my 2008 passion coupe.  I hope MB monitors the desire for a manual as an option in America.See More

Nicolas Hayek, R.I.P.

I for one appreciate his vision that helped lead to where we are today with the type 451.

Hi Mainefortwo!

How are you? Cute smart...

anyways my name is natty and I've been trying to find more participants from the New England area to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

Just copy and paste this link onto your browser.

Thanks so much!

Hi Keith
We are all getting ready for the Saturday, April 18th Smart Celebration in Lynnfield. The event will be from 11am to 4pm. Every Smart car gets a free car wash! Great food, raffles, awards for "favorite Smart" and "greatest distance traveled". Have your name put on your car. The names can be either "SMART" font or "Script", and colors can be silver or black. Simply let me know what you want on your car and I will put the order in. This is "FREE" and provided by Sign Art. The names will be 3/4" and put on the driver's upper door just below the window, send info for passenger's door also if you want. Lets make this a great Celebration with all of our Smart friends. The weather will be sunny and 63 so make sure you come by. Bring a friend, anyone interested in Smarts, take a test drive. No matter where you purchased your Smart, you are always welcome at All Mass Smart Car Events. We have to pass on great thanks to Herb Chambers, Mark Hoch, Gil Otero, Grace Cosco and the entire Smart Lynnfield team for their support. A lot of you folks ask about the Mercedes Badge on my car, I will have a cost for you next week and its a 10 min install. Check out my Page and Pics to see the Mercedes Badge located under the license plate. Please RSVP even if you can't make it, we would like to keep everyone in the Smart site loop.

Hi Keith
Its always a good time! We have coffee and snacks, just hang out and chat for a bit, then we usually head off to sightsee and follow up with a nice lunch. Should be a good time. Any luck with any other Maine Smarties?

Hi Maine42
Come join us on Oct 25th for a fun run, meet, greet and eat! I know its a trip to Hingham but, it will be a great time. Maybe we Smarties can plan a trip up the Maine coast, and talk you into being the tour guide....?
