It is hard to believe that a new model,that propably arrived in UK. around Xmas 2007,and there are NO front bumpers available in UK.till they arrive on SEPTEMBER 17th.(most likely by ship from Japan!!!!).My dealer has just confirmed this,and my Sirion is now grounded at the insurance repairers,till part arrives,and is fitted(accident claim).You would think car manufacturers,especially Daihatsu,linked to Toyota,would ensure sufficient parts to back-up their new model are in the UK.before and after the new vehicle launch?You would not think that a very common part of a new model-the FRONT BUMPER will not be obtainable in UK. TILL APPROX. ANOTHER 5 WEEKS.So much for Daihatsu UK.Customer Care/After Sales/Service???

Don't like the new shape much.

You shouldn't run into someone from the rear then you wouldn't have needed one you daft beggar!!

I was back ended in my 2003 Sirion.

Told five weeks for the parts. But I had a Hire car from the other side as they had to accept full Liability.

Unfortunately yours does not appear to be the case.

Keep your distance then it wouldn't happen (Ok in Hindsight eh)

Hope your bits come soon. Mine arrived after two weeks.

My hire car was a brand new Punto - What a pile of Crap !!

Don't like the new shape Sirion much.Sorry.


The car was parked in a side street,whilst my wife went shopping,when she came back,someone had whacked front bumper and done a runner!!leaving no details,so I am left with paying the excess to insurance company-luckily the policy is fully comp. with claims protection-so be wary,unless you are running an old banger which only costs a few hundred quid-be fully insured,as I dont think third party fire and theft will pay you out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
