My 2004 Microcar is playing up so as of wednesday I will have a suzuki alto GL 1998.

size is Kei but not engine as it is a 998cc automatic.

Not got it home yet but looking forward to it.

Photos when my father in law gets it home.

Down here is Cornwall in Penzance area there are at least 4 Copens that I know of.

Best one is in subaru colours, dark blue with gold minilite style alloys.
I want one but cost too much for me.

If money was no object, i'd love a old skool mk1 (SS80S) love old skool Japs

Altos are cool. I've always seen them as solid, honest pieces of Japanese engineering. ;)

In terms of small jap cars I've always preferred the micras, I've got three right now.
Get some pics up, any plans? Or sensible daily :P

Everyday driver but if can get upgrades cheap enough will "tart" it up.

would like to replace the steel wheels with alloys.

already has wind deflector fitted always wanted these on a car.

It's only car I have driven on road (my classic don't count as never been on road) without central locking.

Waiting to sort insurance out on it and take my french microcar off road for essential repairs.

But mot is 26th this month too so need get it checked over.
In great condition with lots recepits and bill of sale.

Not bad for £150 at a car auction!

MOT is out on 25th Nov 2015.

It runs too fast on its own.

This morning it got to 30mph on it's own.

how do I turn down the creep of my automatic.

all my glass says maruti on them, so does this mean mine is made in india?

Only been driving it since friday night and noticed already that it is not as good on fuel as my microcar.

Not drastically it is about 20-25 miles per £10 of fuel (fuel is 104.7 at time)

in my microcar car £10 will do week to work and back.
In the alto need another 30 miles so little more is not bad.

It is nice to drive and great visibility for reversing, even if it does steam up inside quickly.

looking forward to my time with this car...

It's doing 33-35MPG not too bad for a 993cc auto.
