    Good to see an indie getting positive feedback.

    And glad you're happy with the car.

    I assume both 450 and roadie 700's are the same. Mines hitting 40k now. Still no dramas.
    Smart car lover.

    46350 miles on mine and as fit as the proverbial butchers dog. Put in 0.5l, first top up in 1470 miles. Works out at 2940 miles/litre. On a mineral oil too... Fully synthetics - not what they are cracked up to be...

Mike Fudge at fudgesmart - http://www.fudgesmart.co.uk/ did the work. He collected and delivered the car back to me here in London. His quality of service, his technical knowledge and the quality of his work are all first class. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He even did an engine remap and it now delivers 76bhp - it feels as though I have a 'new' car! All of this for an affordable price - not outrageously expensive and certainly cheaper than buying a newer Smart!
    I hope this adds polish to his already glistening halo!

    You've had almost exactly the same job as me! Mine was a 599cc but it was also using a lot of oil, and fudge delivered back to me last night - I also asked him to put on the 75hp map and am equally impressed by car & service provided!

    BTW, over on tr.n there's someone with an 80hp roadster that's just passed 140,000 miles which has yet to need a rebuild. Infact it's going so well he's just had it remapped for the first time!

    Lets hope the remap doesn't kill it!

    Mines is a 2004 Pulse, been having oil issues but so confused, car going through oil and feeling luggish but Im sure its leaking it underneath somewhere and its not coughing up smoke on acceleration

    I dont know if i need a rebuild, hope he doesn't!!!
