    First and foremost I would like to thank Kmoneil the admin for making this sub forum for us owners or future owners of Kei Cars (Honda Beat, Suzuki Cappuccino, Autozam AZ-1, Etc...). This sub forum is also a bit of a test to see if enough people own these vehicles to make it worth having a sub forum for.

    Me personally I will be (August 6th) the new owner of a Suzuki Cappuccino that will need lots of work (got it at a great price from Japan). If anyone out there owns one of these awesome Kei cars go ahead post something showing that this sub-forum can become something great.:p;)

    I check the auctions every day for a Cappuccino. I want the EA21R so it looks like I may be waiting until next year to snag one. Oh well, I was patient when trying to get my van, I can be patient about this too.

    Ya the second variation of the motor is pretty nice with that timing chain but I got such a good deal on mine I'm okay with just getting the first version lol. I might stuff in a 13b at some point anyway.

    I'm told swapping the EA11R/F6A for an EA21R/K6A is pretty straightforward too.

    There was a guy in Great Britain, who had both a Cappuccino, and a Carry that he was working on. He had a YouTube channel, and did some good videos of change differential rations, etc. I haven’t seen any new vids in a couple of years, and unfortunately I can’t remember his name.

    Damnable autocorrect, and if I’m in a hurry, I don’t always catch it.

    I type ratios and it decides that it likes rations.

    An Alto Works or a Mira TRXX Avanzato or a Vivio RX-R is on my wishlist..

    My Jimny has been laid up for a time because of needing an engine and then an oil leak in the new engine.

    I have been looking at buying a kei car for a couple of years now, but still doing as much research as I can. I narrowed my choices down to a Honda Beat or a Subaru Vivio. Finding this forum has been a huge help. Sometime in the next couple of months I should be ready to get the car I want. Can't wait to share my excitement and experiences with everyone here!
