Hi, I am also from UK but I am always reading many Smart Forums, as been a Smart owner since 2003.
Usually lowering is to do with the suspension coils, but seat lowering is more unusual as most of us want to retain the safety aspect of siting high in a Fortwo cabin, in case of a side impact.
If you are very tall try reclining the seat back, see if that works, but if not and you do still want to lower the seat then you will have to unplug wiring, take out seat and base underframe, and chop and re-weld the underframe to suit. Not many have done that
PS...do not switch car ignition back on when seat wiring upluged as it will mess up seat side air bag info/status stored in car computer (assuming you have seat side air bag).
You can google ' lower seat smart fortwo' and come up with some links on Smart websites.
Here is one example... (good luck to you, if you go ahead chopping and re-welding).....
