Look on Ebay, there is literally thousands of replacement antennas. As a matter of fact every time I search for smart car stuff on Ebay, I put -antenna -key -led behind the search. I will go from 28,000 hits to 3500 just by eliminating all the crap. You can get 1" tall antenna stubs that will fill the hole.
When my '08 was still new, I swapped out the original antenna for the Dodge antenna. Challenger I think, don't recall really, but it's a common swap recommended here on SCoA, it's much shorter than the OEM antenna and doesn't cost much. But, I never listen to radio so I would just as well do with no antenna at all.
I was a radio announcer for 17 years, ending in 1992. Radio today is just saddening (to me). Thanks Reagan.
EDIT: Yeah, thanks for the reminder jefferios, mine is an Avenger antenna too.
It works good. Its right next to the "A" pillar, so it get a good signal bounce off it.
Its a little Red vacuum cap from the auto parts store, BUT one could finish the clipped end with any little do-dad.
I'm new here and new to Smart cars, but I'm quite interested in owning one. I live in Seattle, so it would be helpful to have a smaller car. I found one for sale that only has 13K miles, and is in good condition, expect for the normal wear and tear and a couple scratches on the body...
So my beloved 08 fortwo got its first flat yesterday coming off the Williamsburg bridge into Manhattan. The valve stem came loose somehow so a refill was not an option.
My question is, can I buy a spare wheel that would fit front or back just to limp me home or even a donut type wheel.
In my never ending quest to turn my lowly Pure into a Passion clone......>:D..... I am contemplating replacing my "pure" 2 spoke steering wheel with a three spoke "passion" wheel. Has anyone tried this? Will the air bag from the 2 spoke fit the 3 spoke? I can't really tell from pictures if it...
My 2015 Pure tipped 10k, so I thought I would check with one of the local MB dealerships that service Smarts about the 10k or 5 year servicing. Also wanted to get a price on the tach and clock module.
I emailed the parts department for pricing early yesterday. Never heard back. Texted service...
