    Hi!
    Just to let you guys know there is a new Copen owner out on the roads of 'glorious' sunny Brum (cough, cough). So chuffed with my little car (59 reg)I feel I should put a neon sign on it when I have parked pointing and telling everyone "Isn't this the best little car you have seen round here - bet you wished you had one too"? Can't wait for an actual non raining/freezing cold day when I can actually get the top down.
    On a more sensible note...Are there things I should/could I be doing to look after my Copen over the winter as I will be using it all the time. Any tips and hints to protect its loveliness? ;)

    Hi Kate, Welcome to Copenworld. Congratulations on your new Copen.
    If you want to look after your Copen & protect it from the winter, have a read of this thread:

    Wash it regularly to wash the salt off it. Give it a good wax to protect the paint. Go around the car with a touch pen to sort any chips out.
    Get an old toothbrush to clean out the front of the rear wheel arch, there's a nice area that collects stones & dirt.

    Hi Kate! I'm in Leicester but I visit my daughter quite often in Selly Oak. She's at Brum University. So if ever you see a little grey Copen pootling around on the M6 or the A38 it's probably me.
