Nothing remarkable there, I hear you say, BUT...I've owned MLC since I bought it new in ..........(drumroll) ....May 2004! :eek::eek:Is this a record? Has any Copen on here done less miles??

    Good morning you OB. Hope all is good?

    Well, I'm fairly certain that you're the only one to have owned their Copen since new :) Hope there's been plenty of services during the 11 years?

    Currently, Buzz has 6560 miles on him, which is the least mileage Ive seen, but I'm sure that someone will have one at less than this.

    I bought him in August 2013 with 4400 on the clock and 3 full main dealer services in the book. I added another service in September 2013 just for my own peace of mind.

    Don't know what sort of mileage we'll add during our forthcoming trip to Snowdonia. At least 500 I would think :(

    Cheers!

    Phill and Lin and Buzz.

    The other end of the scale

    Hi, My car is the polar opposite, I have just racked up 103,000 miles and still going strong, turning heads and making me smile:)

    So Buzz is 8 years old and only 6560 miles?? Wow he's not even run in yet! The trip to Wales will do him a power of good. You and Lin might enjoy it too! and yes, MLC has had plenty of services and oil changes over the years. Mind you, looking at the MOT certificate reveals that MLC only covered 89 miles between 2011 and 2012. That was the saddest time in his life when he was sitting out on the drive, leaking water, unloved, roof not working.....:(:( but now he's back in fine form! :D:D

    Hi Old Badger, I've an 55 plate Copen. I bought Rosie in Sep 2014 with just over 31000 miles on the clock, since then I have done just over 2000 miles in it.

    I have no way of knowing I have only owned her for two years, I have replaced the first lambda sensor following the engine check light warning me of a problem, other than that I have had no trouble at all despite driving her throughout the year, with the roof down at every chance I get. I knew of the possibilty of turbo failure when I bought her so have a reconditioned unit boxed up in my garage just in case.
    In fact I have a cat D copen with 43000 miles on the clock sitting in the garage which was purchased for spares but have never removed a single part from it, I just start it regularly and drive it in & out of the garage, I have now gathered together all the bits needed to put it back on the road as soon as the weather permits, thinking of maybe having a vinyl wrap in a loud colour similar to a Pandora Copen, just secured a full set of mini lites for it.

    Hope to have many more miles of fun and smiles.:):)

    That's very impressive, Badger - you've been very abstemious in using MLC in all those years! When I met Neville back in 2013 he already had 18.5K on the clock and I added another 3K in the first year, so he's a deal younger than MLC but already has more miles under his belt.

    Great to see so many 'young-old' Copens on here! :D
