Can you please confirm that this is in the manual, or that you have checked this yourself?

On my 541 cab this is designed so that the load cover stores nicely directly behind the seat at the level of the trunk floor. I had assumed, from descriptions I had read, that the new cabs work the same way. If it's at trunk floor level behind the seat, it seems odd that it would not fit with the sub in place.

The Position of the Subwoofer just slightly overlaps the recess where you store the luggage cover when you don't don't need it.
Something thats already been covered us here in the uk where we've had them since April. I'm going to see if I can find the thread from one of our uk based forums

Thanks.
So, you've answered a few questions on this thread but not this one. Is there a reason Smart and its dealers are still hiding the ball on this? Seriously, just own up to it (even if it is "we'll never be able to fix it so you have an 8.7 gallon capacity tank") and let's move on. But until we do get answers, trust me, this isn't going away.

I don't have an answer for that. I have been told by smart that the tank capacity is 8.7 gallons and that's where I leave it. Other sources have shown a 7.7 gallon capacity, which is more believable to me on the cars that have been having fill-up issues. It isn't occurring to every one. And the only way to find out is to run the car long enough to get a tank or two in them, which is not going to happen prior to selling the car.

For some it's a big deal. For some others, I haven't heard a thing from them. If anybody has an issue, I refer them to the service department and/or smart USA's customer service line.

On Instagram, I saw a matte grey with matte grey tridion ED cabby. It did not have any "ED" logos on it, but it was plugged into a charger. It really looked good and seemed to have a manufactures plate on it.

Glad it didn't leave you stranded! It is simply stunning. Your middle pic could easily be my new screensaver.

So, how did it drive?
