    Hi everyone
    I'm in a bit of a pickle here. I have my beautiful copen for about a year now, and for the first time I'm in need of parts for it. A huge surprise, I can't find any. I knew when buying the car it would probably come to this, but I was expecting it to be something like roof mechanism parts or something specific to the car, definitely not the shock absorbers.
    So, if anyone has suggestions a bit simpler then ordering from Japan it would be much appreciated, and even earn you a beer or a dozen if you're in driving distance.
    I already checked all around Ireland and UK that myself and Google could think of, including eBay.
    Thanx all

    48531B2400 is the correct parts number, I have bought them via a german shop that does not exist anymore sadly.
    Have paid 140€ for the pair, quite cheap and they are OEM (Showa)

    Look for a dealership on www.daihatsu.co.uk and call them, tell them the parts number. They might be able to get some for you

    Anji, it's actually my girlfriend that found them in the end. 186euro for the rear set. The website of the company is meca-automobile.com
    They don't ship to Ireland so I had to improvise.
    I have yet to receive the shocks and hopefully it should all work out, but I'll let you guys know when I do
