I have a 2005 Smart Passion City Cabriolet 450 Gas. My exhaust pipe broke completely off and beyond repair.
I live in Chicago and dealership says I have to order the whole exhaust system which is $1,065.
Does anyone know where I can get the muffler? Don't say Smart Madness they don't have. This has become a major headache.
Thanks for anyone who can help.

I’ve seen that listing too, but no picture of the muffler, so I’m hesitant.
In Europe they are selling aftermarket mufflers for 120 USD. Should be the same - just a simple aftermarket design...
You can find them on ebay.de it is called Smart auspuff.

Thanks for your help. I looked at that and won't work. Apparently I do have to get the entire exhaust assembly which includes the flex pipe, muffler, tailpipe and the catalytic converter which is all attached together. This is so stupid! A stupid $10 flex pipe broke in half and gonna have to shell out 150 times that amount. Plus my exhaust manifold is also cracked and of course you can't just buy that......it comes with the turbo too. Even though my turbo is fine. This car only has 70K miles. ...another $1000 plus labor.....where is the hole I can crawl in.

Many of us are finding muffler shops that that will weld in a new flex pipe in the 175 - 300 dollar range. I had my own flex pipe repaired for 225 dollars.

Thank you.

Here's a stock one - side exhaust (~$360):

I went with center exit 'brabus style' ($660) and you need a rear valence ($140):

I mounted this setup with the 450 Brabus rear valance on my car.
Hated to hide the beautiful polished exhaust behind a valence but it sounds great.
