450 Fortwo Trip Computer

The roadster can be fitted with a groovy looking trip computer that can perform a number of tasks. I wanted it on my smart For2 so here's how to do it.

Modification Details




This page will show you how to wire a Roadster trip computer into a fortwo.



Please note: This can only be added if you have a 700cc smart For2.
 There is a possibility it will work on the 800 CDi but it's up to you to try it.
 If you do try it and it works, please let me know so I can update my information.

I was the first person to fit the Roadster trip computer to the Fortwo.
 Please bare this in mind as people have been leeching this info and giving no credit back.

Do I Get An X-Gauge Or A Trip Computer?

Without a doubt you get the X-Gauge first, it can display a lot more information.
     Get a trip computer after the X-Gauge if you still want one.
