just a couple of pics of how my copen looks these days
Looks good. But i would change the front number plate to an import square type.
I didn't like to comment but I agree It's so much a part of what makes a Copen a Copen!
i never thought about that... i wonder if you can get them the size dimensions to the japanese plates but in UK form with lettering
Yep, it's called in import plate. The lettering is slightly smaller than a standard UK plate. Plenty of supplier on ebay.
I've got one and as Adam Ant says the lettering is slightly smaller and potentially, probably illegal. But my car passed the MOT today! Just one advisory.
I used to have the rear motorbike sized plate but thought that still looked slightly too big for the copen. So I downsized.
Officially they should only be fitted to actual imported cars (clues in the name). However my plate is as supplied by Daihatsu from new. Never been stopped by the police, nor had any problems with the MOT. They are the size the designers allowed for, so look the best on your Copens face.
When I bought my import plate it was advertised as 100% UK road legal.
Great looking car by the way. It looks well looked after.
looking absolutely gorgeous, really like what you have done.
anyone know where I could get door sills like that from?
also thanks everyone else for the advice on a number plate, looking into getting a personalised number plate and want it to be in the format of original.
I believe all the alloy sills have gone. That is, no more left at the supplier/Daihatsu. Maybe some dealers around the world have a set on their storage shelves but none left directly from Daihatsu.
thanks trustafox - okay well let the great hunt begin!!!!!!!
Gladiators! are you ready?
I want some too.
hehe these were optional extras from new and luckly the new owner put them on... in fact all the options you see on my copen have been there since new
they had good taste in my opinion
you import them from Japan. £65.39 for the sills but you can nearly double that cost once you include shipping, importer commission & other costs.
I used Jesse Streeter as recommended by Adam K to import my last Japanese purchase & his commission is only £5 per item depending on its value I think. I had to pay for the sellers bank charges & postage to Jesse then air mail to me. Then there's 4% Paypal fee on top of all that!
So 2 items costing £80 turned into £150 for me!
many thanks Alz12045!
I have clicked on english but the descriptions are all still in japanese, apart from obvious pictures I dont understand half the products or anything else on that page lol!
i assume it is better then to buy the products in 1 rather than little orders as you "need" them.
Copy the web address & paste it into Google translate!
instead of copying your name - i copied a number of a comment! lol
thanks for that - going to try now!
It you buy anything or things over £125 or you'll have to pay another £35 import tax too.
