    Keith is not far for a Smart Cdi only an hours drive. You need a blade to operate ignition or remove top of SE drive. Spare battery or jump leads also is advisable.

    I was given a set of 17 mm across the flats wheel bolts but still using my original 15 mm bolts. Less weight hence faster acceleration.
