    Hi everyone! :) im going to purchase from Japan, but there is one thing i am completely stumped by and thats how to do this! im ordering from this website http://item.rakuten.co.jp/auc-mickcorp/5449/ I have attempted to try and sign up to Rakuten, but it wont let me because of my post code. Is there anyone out there that knows how to purchase from places like this? =\

    If anyone could help it would be great! :(

    Contact Jesse Streeter:

    http://jessestreeter.com/

    I have used him a number of times as have some other members here.
    Just e-mail him the item you want to buy. He will get it on your behalf. It will be delivered to him & he will then dispatch it to you.
    He will send you a clear quotation of the costs prior to proceeding, based on an estimated weight of the item.

    I was talking at work and a work colleague told me that his in laws are japanese - so maybe able to help me - i dont hold out for much hope though, I will give them a month or so and then probably order.

    I did want to go for blue - (grey copen) but everyone said i should go for pink (looks most like red and suits red seats better than blue) - i was thinking I could put a red film over the back to try and get the lights more red.....

    then i spotted a LED gear knob which you can have in red or blue - thinking two types of LED colour would be weird... unless i choose blue...

    i dont even begin to understand - but i love the awkward translations it comes up with.

    mine is grey

    silver - good with blue - i assume you have red seats?

    yep red seats, no 1.3, I dont think the turbo ever came in grey - all the grey ones I have seen are the 1.3s - how about you?

    8 days till payday....... long shopping list.

    Out of interest how much did it end up working out as?

    i am the 1.3 :) was looking at a turbo before i got that one because of what you could do to them! but the 1.3 was just too nippy to turn down! 6 days now for me! what are you planning to buy for your copen? :) it may seem a little expensive, but it turned out to be £90 all in but worth it! I used Jesse Streeter.

    i was thinking the 0.7 too just because I LOVE the green/tan combo - I am not the biggest fan of red leather - but the copen has converted me slowly but surely. when the roof is down i like the way it matches the lights....

    £90 - not bad, it make a real difference too, just wait till summer! hooray!

    im thinking of harmonising the interior, too much black plastic going on for me - not enough chrome and leather :) so momo gear knob, gaiters for gear stick and central console etc.


    but i found a rust spot the other day - chips away gave me a quote of £175 +VAT ouch :(

    Sorry CopenCat! ive not managed to get on this in the past week. Been really busy. The green and tan caught my eye too :| see i looked at cloth interior as well but it didnt do justice for me :( i hope we get a nice warm summer :D its quite nice today, but cold. What momo gear knob are you looking at? cause im thinking of changing mines too. I had a touch of rust on my copen around the front arches caught it quick before it spread!

    I have to say, I'm very impressed with Jesse so far. Good communications, clear pricing, and good for advice on using Yahoo auctions.
