Hi everybody,

My name is Leonel and i live in Guatemala. I bought one month ago a 2016 passion in the US and import it home. I had a 99, a 2001 and a 2002 coupe and a 2003 cabrio several years ago, so im back with the smart fever hehehe. I have a few questions:

1. I have serious doubts about my engine. I already tried a lot of VIN decoders and some says 0.9turbo and others 1.0. So, can you help me with that? VIN WMEFJ5DA3Gk058806

2. The car came with a broken side mirror, so now i have to replace it. I have been looking on ebay and part catalogs but only shows a $165 with the part number (453-810-31-00). Are any difference between the 2016 and 2017 side mirrors? I found some in eBay at $55 but the part number doesnt match (453-811-66-00) but they have a search list and says it fits.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Leonel.

Hola! I have friends in Guatemala but haven't seen any smarts.

Your US spec 2016 is a 0.9 liter turbo engine. :)

If it was a true U.S. spec 453 it has to be a .9L turbo. You can enhance its performance with a booster chip module. I have the mild version and it adds 15%-20% horsepower and torque. You can really feel the difference, especially merging onto high speed roads. A pedal map module also enhances performance.

I have a US spec 2017, and strictly from observation I don't see any physical difference in them. The difference in the price may be whether it has defrost or not, as I recall when I ordered my 2017 the outside mirror defrost was part of an option package.
