The smart car I bought was missing the owners packet that has the service & manual. I like having everything that came with the car. I could always go look at the PDF online at.

but I thought I might find a new owners packet one on eBay, but call me crazy but $1,450 for 5 booklets seem a bit expensive, even if they have discounted them 80% to only $300.

i found the product number to order is 451-584-03-00 is still $79.99 and I think it is only just the one owners manual and not the entire owners packet. any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Personally, I prefer digital. Easier to search, always handy, and doesn't take up any room in the car. Sure I have to have a phone or other computer to read it, but I'm not sure there's been a time in the past 25 years when that wasn't available for me.

Seems these kinds of listings are just people trying to gouge "collectors" for a bit of paper. I suppose if one had a car in their personal museum or some such with less than 100 miles on it it might be nice to have, but for a real car that gets driven I don't see any value. My 2008 came without any of that and my 2010 I think has it all, flipped it open when I saw it and haven't touched it since.

Ditto, go digital. Faster. I do that on all my cars. I have phone apps manuals on a couple cars. Those paper manual just collect dust in a storage compartment.

$291 sorry, that’s a waste of money. If a smart car would ever become a collector vehicle, some 20 years. That price might make sense. It’s not a rare Ferrari.

I would check out salvage yards, for them. You might get them free.
