  2. No second key-need to get one

    smart General Discussion
    I picked up my little Grasshoppa, but she only has one key. This makes me nervous so I'd like to get a replacement. However, I found out they are super expensive (through the rumor mill). I'm hoping someone on here has already figured out a cheaper way to get around this issue? :D

    Ok, here's what happened: I scraped a mailbox and tore the passenger side blinker off. Now I need a replacement, any where I can get one? I was thinking I'd have to get one from the smart center, but I'd kinda like to get it somewhere a little cheaper or maybe get some aftermarket blinkers...
