    Good luck iztrade! Have you asked your local wreckers if they can source one?
    I'd think your best bet is the UK as I think most European Copens were sold there.
    I doubt that a radiator from a 1.3 would fit as ours have the tiny intercooler wedged in & the air intake unit.

    Here in Australia, most of our wreckers belong to a big group, meaning that even though the piece may be 1 - 5,000km away, if you can find it you can then get it shipped. Of course we have bugger all Copens here so it would be a moonshot anyway if I wanted one.
    There's probably a database like this in the UK or even in Europe.

    Else you are looking at importing a new one from a Japanese supplier. This will be easy but expensive.
    I'll pass this one to the many Britishers & Euros here to help.
    All the best, Brian - in Canberra where it's actually a beautiful Spring day.

    PS, thinking outside the box, a radiator from a very small Daihatsu or other brand car may do the job if plumbed in & it would be cheap. Assuming it fits, a radiator is a radiator after all, it's just a heat exchange, as long as it does the job. I'm thinking the 3cyl Sirions, 660cc Miras, Charades etc. Anyway, just an idea.

    I know someone who has a radiator from a 2008 Daihatsu Copen 1.3L. Should I ask him what the price is?

    Hi Klaa$aaK,
    Is there any chance you could ask your friend for the height, width & depth dimensions? That way we will know if it will squeeze into the tiny space on the JDAL880K. It's a pity iztrade hasn't at least thanked you for your offer. We are a friendly & polite community.

    For myself, I installed a manual boost controller giving 30% more power but my real-time engine temp sensor tells me that my engine is now running around 7-8deg (c) hotter on average.

    The alarm is set for 100deg but as it will soon be 40+degdays here I'm thinking how I can get better cooling. So far, the best option looks like a larger intercooler, but a larger radiator would be better & much cheaper.
    Thanks, Brian.
