Welcome to Smart-Parts-Direct
Our business is dedicated to the Smart brand, supplying parts for SERVICE and REPAIR for all models 1996 to 2017.
- SERVICE covers FILTERS, SUSPENSION, BRAKES, ENGINE PARTS.
- REPAIR covers all replacement BODY Panels, and Structural repair parts you might require for front or rear ends.
Our parts are sourced from France, Germany, Italy and other EU countries, being OE or manufactured to OE (Original Equipment) standard.
Many accessory type parts for the first models - original model 450 CityCoupe (1996-2001), 450 Fortwo (2002-06), 451 Fortwo (2007-13), 452 roadster (2003-05), 454 forfour (2003-05), are now already discontinued, or on low stocks; Smart, like all car manufacturers, never plan to make or sell the parts forever. When these stocks run dry there will be no further possible supply.
We sell painted body panels for the 450 fortwo, and 451 fortwo (2007-13). These panels were originally manufactured for Smart in colours; but as production moved on to each next generation cars, they ceased production like this - to make only unfinished dull black panels straight out of the moulds, meaning painting is the customer's responsibility. This has changed for the new 453 fortwo and forfour, where panels have been supplied from the outset in this same state, so would always need to be painted by the customer. Smart are only following how all other car manufacturers operate. We are not able to supply 452 Roadster panels due to their size, since all carriers charge by the volume of the required box, and overseas shipments were working out to be a higher charge for the shipping than for the panel.
Our painting is done by a local bodyshop, who do repairs for many local used car dealers; we are charged at a very cheap trade rate, so we can pass on to our customers at prices cheaper than available to them locally where the cost can be typically 2-4 times more. Painting takes 3 to 5 days as the painter is normally very busy, he fits our panels in around his own work. Our painted body panels have actually decreased in price since 2011, we believe our prices to be unbeatable! If not, then we do sell the panels unpainted, for the customer to arrange painting him/her self (better to check around first! For more information, see our 450 or 451 Body Panels sections.
The only other source to buy coloured panels would be car dismantlers/breakers, which obviously will display wear/scuffs/scratches, even cracks, and they STILL sell at high prices.
