Hey everybody. I just got back from a Smart car rally. The rally consisted of Smart technicians and after reading a blog post about the transmission chip, I had to ask it to clear the air. Emily at the center told me all you have to do is contact the service center and leave your car there for about an hour and they will flash your 2008 transmission chip to the 2009 transmission chip COMPLIMENTARY! I suggest everybody to do this for the ability to shift while in automatic and to apparently have a smoother more responsive shift. If your service rep does not know about this when you ask them about it, contact your service center and tell them to put you on the list for the complimentary upgrade! Enjoy your Smarties!

I have owned both the '08 and an '09 and I would say it's worth 1 hour, assuming you drive a lot in automatic mode.
