    I am thinking of replacing the stock side mirrors into a classic/vintage style mirrors like this from Demon Tweeks. Hope someone can advise how I can remove the stock ones so that I can see how the screws attach the mirror to the chassis.

    Anyone tried something like this before? The Kumoi mirrors is very expensive. :(

    Haven't you got powered mirrors on your Copen? I'd miss that feature if I replaced them with manual ones but the ones in the link do look great.

    Download the service manual 9842, see section I3-21 for diagrams & instructions on how to remove the side mirrors.

    Yes I do have the powered mirrors but I reckon it is used rarely. So I don't have a problem giving it up for these vintage mirrors. Besides, it would be fun adjusting it manually... so retro! ;)

    Thanks Adamn for being so prompt with your help. I have downloaded the manuals and trying to rename the PDFs to add in the title of the documents. Hopefully it would be easier for us to access and reference to the right topics. Let me know if the others might want it this way and I can find a way to send it back to you. :)
