We have had a Daihatsu Cuore L700S (BUILD DATE: DEC 01) since Feb 2007 and I am amazed at how reliable and bullet proof this unit is and when seeing fuel prices hitting $1.75/L recently I am so glad we have this solid and reliable little unit. It is a pity that they have stopped importing them from Japan as the Mira is still going strong over there and the last time I was there it was cool noting the comeback of the chrome work around the lights and bumper etc.
Anyway it is about time I took a renewed interest in getting our car into good running shape and making sure it will continue on for another decade+.
I do have a question some may be able to help with - I just had a service recently to replace the rocker cover gasket and the mechanic stated the suspension is getting worn and quoted from $790-990AUD for parts and labour. I know they will just throw in a bog standard kit and I saw on a thread here that James had put in a ZerOne SSR kit;
I have found what I think is that same kit on ebay for $825 and have asked for a quote from my mechanic to have that fitted if I buy it.
Any thoughts, advice or concerns on getting that kit for the car?
