    The fortwo only has a mechanical lock on the boot which is why you have to climb through.

    WOW...at last....something GOOD about buying a car in Norway

    Smarts come with trickle charger, heater in the water system and internal fan heater fitted !

    Power socket is mounted at the front, opposite side to the temp sensor, just plug it in with a timer at night, engine is warmed and the interior dry and hot in the morning!

    Still need that mains supply tho' .........

    Stuey has been living indoors this week and waking up to a warm car has been bliss! Shame he's back outside though I got to finish cleaning him in there yesterday too! Good review, I got one of them black and decker things a few years ago that allows you to recharge a battery from inside the car in 5 mins enough to start the car, not used it yet... fingers crossed!

    That sounds really cool! Would have been great if that were available on UK one's. I guess retrofitting something like that would be really hard.

    not worth it when you can buy trickle charges anyway IMO. Just got to get that heater started earlier in the morning. Or wear a coat

    May starter battery is nearly 9 years old. Manufactured in week 49 of 2001. Have no problems starting yet, even when below - 16 C and that is without any plugging in the electric block heater.
    Drives a Smart Cdi - 65 to 85 MPG
