I still have it, my mum said I should give it to my niece who is taking her lessons in September but I can get her something else. It's parked SORNed on my mums driveway atm.
I'm not sure how similar it is to a Uno but the suspension on coilovers is solid. It's uber-reliable and unbeatable around town though. I plan on putting MGF seats in as the bucket seats are a bit too retro.

That's the kind of thing I'd run daily to piss off all my car mates who tell me I should "get something decent".

 

And it'd look great parked next to the Fronterrorvision and the over-lowered New Beetle Mk1.

 I think it's spot on.

 

I really do like that.

If Ghosty passes on this I reckon it's time for a Roffle, I'd have a few tickets at a fiver a piece.

A quick spin on the wheel of misfortune that is GoCompare sez £1400 sans Big Brother box. A bit much for the size of car. but it's a Daihatsu without the Dai purchase tax, and I can imagine it being a right laugh, so it doesn't put me off. What's the 850 like on fuel?

I was about to ask if you were a criminal or something but I just got quoted £650 which is absurd for a car like this with my details. Go Girl was the cheapest for me. Not sure what to take from that.

850 is excellent on fuel! It's a hoot to drive! Massive square boot.

After some thought I think I'm going to have to say raffle it I'm afraid, or at least don't hold on for me. For what it is, it costs too much to insure - £1400 without suspension mods declared, with them declared hardly anyone will touch it, and it's £2300(!) minimum, that's three years on a Pride (£740).

I used to have the earlier daihatsu cuore domino , 1986 , C plate . Used to be my mums and she occasionally caned it from Fife to Fareham with a stopover in Wakefield , so when I got it in 95/96 it was a bit krackered , handled like a go-kart , loved it for hooning across town or Major A road , wind it up far enough on the flat and she would stay at 85ish easy ,didn't survive the winter literally popped the radiator on all seams and a few core plugs for good measure . Why didn't she tell me about the lack of anti-freeze ! So tempted to .....but I mustn't ....

It does handle well, I've never lost control of it and I always drove it on the limit. My fondest moment was driving down the a5 through Shropshire with a few other cars, never braking and just flying round the countless roundabouts.

Has anyone mentioned the Nippa in the 'least desirable' thread? It's a bloody good job Mrs DW loves hers, and I'm starting to think there'll be no chance if we wanted to actually sell it. 

 

I hate to go on about it, but the Nippa is amazing fun. There aren't many cars that can easily crack 50mpg and be an absolute giggle while they do it.

Well said Mr Wobbler.
I can't see a raffle happening(at the moment). I've done about 100 miles since MOT and it's been parked up.

I would happily own this, were it not for the fact that I like both my current cars a lot. I used to regularly drive its predecessor, the 600cc Daihatsu Domino, and it was never less than tremendous fun - on that basis I would imagine that this is a grand little car.

When I was about 21 my girlfriend at the time had one of these on a T reg, when T reg was almost new. Bright yellow, the little 3 cylinder engine is amazingly eager and makes a great noise when you're giving it some welly. Many a mile spent white knuckled in the passenger seat because she only drove at two speeds, stopped, and absolutely flat out.

It was almost impossible to sell on back then too, other than PXing it back to the dealer you bought it from.
