    Hi. is it a turbo version or 1.3?

    If its a turbo go buy a bowser of oil and bad full of oil filters and cross your fingers the turbo is good. Otherwise starting saving your coins in a big jar to pay for a new one if it goes.

    Look around for parts as some can be selling them for very high prices. Possibly because Daihatsu have set sail.

    If you want any specific advice just ask.

    Ah, just read your other post. So you do have a turbo and know about the 3000 miles service interval now. Did the seller inform you of this? What has the service history been like?

    The fuel filter is in the fuel tank so its not a maintenance item. I'd say for its size its an expensive car to service.

    The filters are expensive what I checked out for the turbo. £15 ish?

    I bought a small bulk load of genuine Daihatsu oil filters for about £6/7 recently. I also have an Halfords one I got to spend the £10 voucher I had.

    I did buy one from them once. That's only because I couldn't be bothered to drive the three miles to the local ex-Daihatsu dealer to pick one up. :rolleyes:
