    Hi All,

    Looking to buy a pair of these.

    Japaneazi (Tim) had several of these for sale in the past but I was too slow on the uptake.

    I don't suppose anyone has a set for Sale? New or Used.

    Ken.

    I can suggest a gut to import a set in for you if you want?
    I've used him, he's all upfront about costs etc.

    Hi Adam,

    Thanks for the Offer, unfortunately D-Sport have finished production of these Dampers and have none to import.

    My only hope is buying from a Third Party who actually has a set.

    Ken.

    Ah, I see.
    That's going to be a tough one. Have you checked Yahoo auctions?

    I hope you don't mind Ken, but I've asked my other contact in Japan who's got he's fingers on the pulse of the second hand tuning market. To see if he can find a set for you.

    My man couldn't find anything on the used tuning part market.

    The contact on the German forum Armin, offers a cheap service.
    I'm checking on the D-Sport engine cover with him at the moment.
    He gave me a cheaper quote than I got from Jesse.

    Armin's just checking the postage to my address to confirm the price.

    Scooty, Armin seems to have offered a good service to european Copen owners in the past. Have you used him?

    Hi Adam,

    Thanks for the assistance;
    I think for the extra ¥5000.00 (£41.00) I will plumb for the full Strut Brace Kit.

    Ken.

    Yes, I did several times.
    No complaints whatsoever, very reliable.

    Hi Andreas,

    Looks like I'll be buying through Armin, we're currently trying to establish if the Strut will fit a 1.3 Copen?

    Hi Ken,

    sorry, I cannot tell for sure.

    I only tried once to fit a strutbar for a 1.3l LHD Copen to a 1.3l RHD Copen and that did not fit.

    I never tried yet to find out whether a strutbar for a 6600cc RHD COpen could fit on a 1.3l RHD Copen.

    Sorry again,

    Andreas
