    Hi all,

    just got the news at forum.micro-roadster.de that Daihatsu will stop it's european operation by the end of January 2013. Service will be provided through the current dealers who can apply to remain as service partners.

    :-((

    Here's a link to a germany article, sorry couldn't find anything yet in English:

    Well, actually after all what happend (especially to Daihatsu UK) that decision should be no surprise, but I was still hoping.....

    Just looked at my local Daihatsu dealer and the new car link confirms that there are no new cars in the UK.

    Looks like the Copen will be getting rare now....:)

    I'm not sure if this is good news or bad news for us.
    I think the message is, if you own a copen look after it!
