So, they put double yellow lines outside my residence. My car could squeeze into the tiny yard, but exit required use of the windows or sunroof. A Mini was tried, and fitted the space easily, and one door could be opened, just. So, after researching the narrowest cars in the UK, a Copen was purchased, and yup, you can open both doors and exit with relative ease. That was about 3 weeks ago, so have been easing into micro driving. 2009, 1.3 version in Silver (most seem to be in Silver..), 60 off thousand on the clock. Insurance is pennies, much perkier than it should be, handling ability fits the go-kart description, reminds me of an original mini or metro - nil bump absorption, but braking is not required to cover even the tightest roundabout. Interior space is adequate, the diminutive size only becoming apparent, when you have a passenger, and shoulders touch, and there is a fight for the arm rest. Local journeys are no issue, but a couple of long runs left me missing a cupholder. Google has advised me the early VW Lupo had a single DIN unit that was quite square faced that's been used in various older cars, so the clock is heading out, and we'll try and fit one later today along with a Stereo/hands free phone kit. Grill was cracked, so a replacement has arrived from Japan, and will be fitted in a week or two, along with a couple of parking scuffs being repainted on the front bumper. Former Daihatsu Dealer in Aylesbury (Now Subaru) has done a "just in case" major service and gave her a general inspection to put my mind at rest, and reported no faults or issues; rust that I've read about on here doesn't seem to have raised its head (yet ??). Picked up a cheeky custom plate from the DVLA to match the character of the car this week. Some questions - Were custom bags ever available for the boot to maximise luggage space ? Should there be a Tonneau cover for when the roof is down ? - none came with the car, but the gap between the boot and the rear of the cabin looks as though it should have one. Seat Belts not returning - Argggh ! - any solutions ? is it just the angle / position of the seat to the belt holder or is the spring just not up to the job ?
