    Have been thinking about getting a Copen for a year or two. Am now child-free so about to take the plunge.
    Any advice on judging value and negotiating with dealers welcome.

    Hi,

    My advice would be to be patient. I spent a long time looking for my Copen on eBay and gumtree until one came up just a few miles away ( the good ones always seemed to be in Scotland )

    Anyway, I didn't waste any time driving a long way to look at a lemon.

    I paid £1900 for a 53 plate with 41k on the clock. The wheel arches were corroded but I had them repaired for £180.00.

    She looks great and runs like a dream.

    Hope that helps

    Welcome to Copenworld!
    Have you looked at the buyers guide
    http://www.copenworld.com/vb3/showthread.php?t=1078
    It will help you to know what to look for, the prices vary quite a lot depending on age, mileage, condition etc. you need to decide which engine you want as that will narrow your search. I travelled about 30 miles to get mine but I would have gone much further to find the right one.
    Good luck searching!

    Thanks for the advice

    Thank you all for your help.
    The advice to be patient was spot on. I looked at seven Copens in the end: three didn't live up to their descriptions online; two sold within hours of being posted and, although I was quick, I wasn't quick enough; and one owner agreed a price and then changed her mind and decided she couldn't bear to part with it. But it was worth the wait because number seven is a beauty.
    If it ever stops raining I'll take a photo.
