New dutch guy

Hi there!
Im from the Netherlands 34 years old.
I dont know much about cars nor have i got alllot of experience in doing things with cars… but never to old to learn haha

I just recently became the owner of a sirion 1.3 sport from 2005.
i was realy surprised about how much space the car has for being a smaller one (i drove a ford mondeo station before this one) and with the 1.3 engine it is comming allong great with the other trafic :slight_smile:

The reason to go for a smaller car was simple, cheaper in the monthly fee’s cheaper in fuel consumption and i just dont drive as much anymore but i wanted a car that looks nice and in my search the love for these cars grew on me…

As said before i dont have much experience on working on cars but i can say i am technically educated.
the reason for my registration here is that i want to learn to do some things myself , share my progress and watch others do the same and meet other daihatsu enthousiasts

This is my new toy! :


G’day and welcome to the forum.
