Hello all out there in Copenworld and thank you for allowing me to join the merry throng! Had my Copen (Neville - a 59-plate 1.3) for just a week and have loads and loads to learn - hoping to glean lots from the forum. Great fun but the ride takes a bit of getting used to - still, I guess that without the stiff suspension the handling's going to be rubbish.....? Can't believe I've still got 10 months' Daihatsu warranty on in; mind you, that's a journey....! Anyway, thought I'd bung out a couple of questions and see what you think: Neville wears Bridgestone Potenzas and the books says 35psi all round; when I picked it up they were 30/28/23/21 (!), so I've increased that to the 35. Guess that's sensible?! Interesting reading about the other tyre possibilities when it comes time to change. I've got that grating sound from the front left quarter on turning left but looking at the forum it appears to be the dust cover on the disc brakes fouling the disc - likely culprit? Finally I was a tad shocked to read about how poor the rust protection is. Presumably that's also true of post-2007 cars in the UK? Does anyone recommend any particular preventative course of treatment, e.g. waxoyl, and where would I generally go to get such work done? I reckon that sorting a 4-year old car now is a better bet than leaving it to rot and then trying to cut out, weld and re-spray. Anyway, looking forward to years and years of happy ownership - if you're on holiday in the Lake District I'll give you a wave!
