It appears you have an earlier model called the 450. There are a few 450 owners on this forum, but that model was never sold here by smart or MB. You will get more help on Club Smart Car out of Canada or one of the UK sites. I am sure one of our 450 owners will offer some help soon.

You might want to be more specific about what type of help you want and what sort of information you want. And maybe some more details on what vehicle you have and what engine it has. "Help" is really, really vague.

if it's a gasser then most likely it's a G&K conversion - does it have 'G&K' on the speedometer?

fyi....some helpful links:

for service you might want to start by contacting local independent Mercedes Benz shops - if they have the MB 'Star' computer system they can connect/communicate with the car.

In another thread Huronlad identified it as a 1998 to 2002 with a 600cc turbo gas engine, based on the photo. Didn't think G&K imported any cars from those years....

did G&K do the conversions for ZAP also? '02 would put it in ZAP? - could explain all the follow-on issues.

this link may suggest that G&K may have had some '02's - at least they [and JK technologies] petitioned NHTSA to make them eligible and it was granted: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2006-07-21/html/E6-11634.htm

G&K conversions also changed the speedometer out and also added a VIN plate, and it says G&K right on both of them, so it's easy to tell whether the mods were made by G&K. Somehow there were a few cars that came in... differently...
