When there isn't an alternative, it's not that bad. How much do you think the Brabus diffuser and bumper is going to cost? I don't think my 450 turned out that bad.

Not when you have a garage full of tools and the experience and knowledge to use them. Cheapest 450 exhaust I could find at the time was $800. I built mine out of stainless steel for less than $150 and drove it for 4 years until I sold it after I bought my '16. I'll probably build my own for this smart.

Peace guys.

I think the OP wants the one without holes. I am assuming, now that I have some of my senses back, that it is the part number with sport package, not Smart Brabus.

If I could cut plasic as carefully as Stretch I'd be doing things on my own.....

I want the rear diffuser... I want it to look like this... if anyone can help in that effort, I'd appreciate it. Your sawzall body kit, while fascinating, doesn't help to answer my question.

It is also the wrong model of smart, the wrong look, and the wrong muffler.

Lol, it's a 450 duh. It's an example, not your specific part. It was in response to SmArtist00.

Probably one of my last EPC interactions, until I pay up to renew.

As far as I can see, the part wanted attaches to the lowest bumper piece, called TRIM BUMBER BUMPER, BOTTOM SECTION. I tried to check how many different part numbers there are for this...

(Suspense...)

3

A 453 880 03 40

A 453 880 13 01 (Note says use A 453 880 34 04 Yay, if true!)

A 453 880 34 04

Code P71 and A04 are mutually exclusive, but both point to

A 453 880 34 04 So if you have a Smart Brabus or Brabus Sport Package you have this part.

Noted just above A 453 880 13 01 is not available, and to use A 453 880 34 04, so we've narrowed it down to

A 453 880 34 04
and
A 453 880 03 40

SINCE YOU DIDN'T PROVIDE ME A VIN, I HAVE TO SORT THIS OUT PAINFULLY!...


P59 (Sport Package) points to

A 453 880 03 40

P89 (No sport package) points to

A 453 880 13 01
which is not available, so use
A 453 880 34 04

The concern comes down to whether your car has SA code P59 or P89.

If it is a P89, we are good to go.

If it is a P59, then you might need to buy A 453 880 34 04 (CHANGED FROM A 453 880 03 40) as well, because it is a different part number and I can't tell if they are interchangeable when it comes to attaching said part in question...
