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 have been looking for some yellow and black seat covers for my 2014 for two, anyone know a place to look? I looked on ebay and the covers they show obviously do not fit the highback seats I have. Thanks
Does anyone know if the JBL sound system sounds better in the 2017? I listened to one in 2016 and that did not sound too great. Maybe there was something wrong with it. Then again, I am used to the Harman Kardon in a Mini Cooper.
I drive the smart 453 with 5-speed manual transmission (ICE).
I've noticed Prius cars tend to get a better jump from a dead stop at a red light than my smart. Even if I try to slam the 453's pedal and change gears more quickly, I doubt my 453's start could match a Prius's jackrabbit start...
I just got a new 2018 453 Smart ForTwo coupe. Neat car.
I'm now trying to figure out whether it's possible to hardwire a radar detector and, if so, how. The detector I have is a Radenso Pro M, and I'd like to mount it to the windshield with the windshield mount that came with it.
How much does it cost to replace the 451 coup clear roof?
I was surprised none of the autoglass shops that do windshields could help with the SmartCar clear roof, but it’s polycarbonate after all, not glass, so it makes sense. But none of the body panels vendors seem to seek a roof either.
