Does anybody know if and when Piaggio will start importing Porters back into the UK, I can't understand why they stopped in the first place, are there any new ones left UK dealerships as I am looking for one

piaggo/ hijet

Post by bones 851 on Mon Mar 14, 2011 7:49 pm

when buying a can of stardust silver spray paint from my local daihatsu dealer (very expensive) the dealer had looked over my van for the serial number, it appears (he informed me) that dihatsu had sold the hijet rights to piaggio, hence the porter,my hijet is a hybrid part dihatsu, part porter, now it seems dihatsu has bought this back , so i dont know if we will now be able to by a DAIHATSU PORTER, OR A PIAGGIO HIJET Surprised ,WHO EVER SELLS THEM THEY WILL STILL MILK US FOR AFTER SALES THOUGH...... enybody else no the score.....bones,,,, ps where can i now buy less expensive spray paint for the van,,,, cant find it on e-bay any more,,,, affraid

Hi Bones find a local car paint shop or even halfrauds and you can get a colour mixed it not cheap but probably cheaper than a dealer if you can find the paint shop you may be able to do a colour match nearly all car paints are the same and the different brands give them different names I haven't seen a light silver like yours in person but it looks like ford moondust silver which you can get in the holts brand which is a few quid a can (300ml), park next to a ford to compare you can ighten it up a bit with a white primer or darken with a dark silver or black coat first.

Would you like me to start a new post or would you like me to change the title on this one?
