The car came without it, anyone knows were to get one from? Thanks!
Did you get one??
No still looking!
Yes I saw the eBay one, but it looked in bad shape.
I bought a "Copen"-badge here (unfortunately very expensive!) :
Really? The zoomy thing suggests it looks OK to me. Good luck with that search .... or you could go down the popular 'de-badged' look!
I've got the copen badge that came of mine, in really good condition apart from bit of remaining sticky stuff on that would sell you
Sent you a massage. Thanks!
If anyone has a 'Copen' badge for sale (or knows where to get one), I'd be pleased to hear from you.
They are hard to get hold of, especially in good condition. I managed to get hold of one after about 18 months scouring eBay.
It was a while ago but I'll see if I can find the seller, as I got a new one and they might have had more than one.
Thank you very much!
I've found what looks like a genuine set of badges (2 'D's and a 'Copen') on a Japanese website called Rakuten. The cost for all 3 (incl. p&p) will be abt £75; does that seem excessive? Thanks again.
It does seem quite a bit - I think I paid about £15 for a new 'Copen' but it is worth whatever you are willing to pay, I can't find the seller I bought from on eBay at the moment and I'm sure a Daihatsu dealer would charge you a fortune
Are the Rakuten ones new, if they are used they can be quite marked, if they are new it's just a case of how much you are willing to pay.
Copens are expensive hobbies once you get started MrL just notices parcels from Japan arrive occasionally and sighs
A lot of people remove the "D" and just leave the Copen on the boot. I prefer that look as it is a lot cleaner, and the "D" looks oversized for the car as well. Have a look on ebay to see who is scrapping a copen and see if they still have the badges available.
Thanks for the scrap yard suggestion and I completely agree about the aesthetics of just a 'Copen' badge.
Not only am I learning about Copens, but eBay also; a 'Copen' badge duly arrived today and it was only £12. Now to work out how best to stick it on.....
Sorry, not really answering your question, but don't you find the "DAIHATSU" plastic sticker under the "Copen" badge, very very irritating? I've just bought my Copen and came with it. It's the first thing that is coming out - even before the rust ;-)
I was lucky in that my Copen was entirely 'debadged' (a new word for my vocabulary) when I got it last month so I'm just going to replace the 'Copen' badge and leave it at that.
Yep, I totally agree with you. I think that's the best presentation. Besides, you still have the "Daihatsu" in the wind breaker thingy... I didn't want to take the "D" out just because it would have pin holes or something on the boot lid to secure it, but if that's not the case (which seems to be) it will be the next thing to go.... BUT... sorry, in anticipation to our fellow "copen" I will be keeping it in case me or future owners of the car change their mind. Nice keyring or even a necklace for a bit of "bling".
Although I'm just as new to all this, I believe the badges are just stuck on and I'm sure I've seem forum exchanges on this site about how to attach and remove them.
My son's girlfriend would be very keen to make the 'D' badges into earrings!
Badges are just stuck on. I removed the "D"'s with a hairdryer, dental floss and some WD 40. Heat up the D carefully and use the dental floss to saw the glue away. pull the dental floss towards the badge to stop it rubbing on the paintwork. clear up any residue glue/sticky stuff with wd40. if dental floss is snapping, apply more gentle heat.
