I don't want to seem dismal, but you might want to change your name to something Fiat related as Mercedes has dropped gas smarts on it's kiester. electric sales are in the toilet, with no advertising, expect them to get worse.

We go by smartmadness. We also sell products for FIAT but they are different cars and makes so we sell FIAT products under 500madness. We are not going to stop making products for the smart community as there is a big demand for aftermarket products on the gas versions. We also make a few replacement parts as well so even though they are getting discontinued we will still offer products for those that were made.

ElementalDragon,

We were working on various concepts however now that the gas version 453 will no longer be offered and the demand is to low we have chosen to no longer make an intake for the 453. however we do offer a large variety of aftermarket products for the 453 still.

ElementalDragon,

Kinda seems a little contradictory. Not going to stop making products for the Smart community due to high demand for aftermarket products... yet you're basically no longer going to be making PERFORMANCE products for the gas versions.

How do you know demand for an intake was low? Was there a poll? An attempt at a group-buy to see how many you might be able to sell that fell short of your goals? I've seen no such thing. I've been waiting for an intake to come out on the market since the day i got my 453. I'd even be willing to buy one of those concept designs if they were actually fully functioning and daily driver capable.

Of course we will still be offering Performance products for the gas versions! We will continue to offer the products that we currently offer for the 450/451 and 453. We are active not only through telephone but through car events, many different forums, social media and face to face. We read and hear about what people want for different cars that we design products for. There is a high demand for some parts and almost no demand for other aftermaket parts. There has been very little demand for a intake for the 453. The cost and time it would take to produce one would be more than we would make and we would lose money by offering an intake for the 453 due to such low demand for an actual aftermarket intake. We cannot speak for other companies but from our knowledge they do not offer an aftermarket intake possibly for the same reason. Since we never finished building an intake that would be in production we cannot sell any of the concepts we were working with for various reasons. If demand for an intake increases in the future we may consider offering an intake but at this time there is no plans to offer one.
