Hi Andrew, it's Glenn here, I can help you with your questions.
As far as I know, there is no rear disc brake conversion kit available for the D40. Even if you could do it, the State Compliancing issues would be a possible problem as well. Regarding mechanical problems other D40 owners have experienced, the major item that is commonly reported is early age clutch failure in the manual transmission vehicles. Of course it doesn't occur in every vehicle, but it's worth knowing about.
Don't forget that if you have any more questions or you are unsure of what I mean in the information provided please ask for more clarification, I'm only too happy to work with you to achieve a good result. Cheers Glenn.
