Did you know that pre-2008 also has a six speed transmission ?

lebikerboy,

I wondered about that. Is it Neutral and handbrake for the rest of the world in the 2008+ 451 ForTwos?

Here comes some hopefully funny sarcasm:
No park?!? Now thats just insane. Next you're going to tell me that the rest of the world is using a simple, sensical system of measurement based on multiples of 10!!
End of hopefully funny sarcasm.

Great suggestion fastturb. I've been thinking about how to implement that for a while now. Well I've mostly been thinking about where to mount the switch and LED. 450 owners, if you have a blank where the fog light switch would go, maybe that spot is a good candidate for the switch. Looks stock but requires running some wires under the carpets.

Another spot might be on the side of the seat facing the center tunnel.

Does anyone know which wires, I have a 2013 Passion model? I figure there are wires for the heating element and the seatbelt. Not sure which ones I want. Maybe I should just unplug stuff til it doesn't work then puff I found it....


(I wear my belt i just hate the sound of the buzzer when i move the car around to the back yard...)

Actually it's just a gentle beep that reminds us that the belt should be worn and if one has the patience the beeping will go faster and faster and then is silent.
