    Hi, to all and a happy new year.

    My wife and I fell in love with these little cars almost at first sight. That was about four weeks ago! Now we have a shiny new silver 1.3 called Cuddles and we are besotted with her. Its good to find a group of people who are burning a candle for them because these Copens are seiously good cars.

    Now the confession. I crashed ours today:-(( Actually I scraped my offside front alloy wheel on a granite curb and no excuses.
    I`m probably going to be throttled in my sleep tonight but if anyone knows a way I could clean up the scratches,at least my ghost could have a crack at it.

    Anyhow, pleased to meet you all.

    Best wishes,

    John, the perpetrator.
    & Cleonie, the avenger and throttler

    Hello and welcome John and Cleoine to our club,

    You were lucky to find a new Copen - not many left in the country and not further imports at the moment.

    Re your accident - Don't fret, there are many companies that can make your wheel look like new - just goggle 'alloy wheel repair'.
    Also there is a DIY option sold by Halfords - but apparently colour matching can be a problem.

    Rex.

    Hello John and Cleonie, and welcome to our little world!

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your Copen, and I hope you enjoy using this site.

    It sounds like Rex has already given you some good advice about the alloys. Let us know how you get on.

    Hi, both - welcome to the forum!

    John, I hope you can read this from the hereafter, and that Cleonie find it in your heart to forgive you - eventually...Seriously, I hope you can get it fixed. I know how I'd feel if that had been me. :(

    Say hi to Cuddles for me (that's what my Saab 9000i used to be called!)
