    Hello,

    I’m looking for a COPEN for a TV feature on WEDNESDAY 29TH OCTOBER in the Oxfordshire. IT WILL NOT BE USED ON TRACK.

    Fuel & catering will be provided for the day.
    If you are interested in bringing your car along for the day, please contact me with your vehicle details, location & some photos at fifth.gear@northonetv.com

    I’m also interested in finding out any problems anyone has had with this car/any high running costs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Would've loved to have done this, but just sold my Copen.

    However here is the buyers guide which gives details of issues on Copens.

    http://www.copenworld.com/vb3/showthread.php?t=1078

    Briefly it's rusty rear arches & water leaking into the boot, caused by leaking middle brake light or poorly seated boot lid.
    There are two engine sizes on the Copen the later models from I think 2007/2008 onwards are 1300cc. Early models used the 659cc Turbo engine as used in the the original Kei class Japanese version. This version can suffer from very expensive turbo failures caused by not keeping to the every 3000 mile oil change routine.

    Great stuff.
    Should be a great feature as they are asking for Suzuki Cappuccino's too.

    have to work otherwise I'd be volunteering too. Haven't seen 5th gear for ages, thought they'd given up making it. much better than topgear as 5th actually talk about cars instead of just twatting about

    They already have someone located close to their studios in Birmingham :-((. Is it you Your Majesty?

    Your car would be perfect for it though Princess - maybe they could add an extra bit in talking about it!

    HI everybody,
    I don't like bumping old threads but I'm curious: did this ever happen? :)

    I didn't ever see a programme or any advertising so I'm not sure. They told me they had someone arranged for the filming but I never heard any more about it. :cry::cry::mad:
