    Hi, I've had my Copen since AUG 2011. I've just now joined the copenworld and looking for nearby owners and service facility referral. I understand these are few and far between since the dealerships have closed down.

    Driving to down the A21 to from Hastings regularly I see there is a Proton dealer was also a Copen dealer. Anyone know anything about theses guys? Surely there is a more local service to Stansted.

    Thanks.

    Hi Geoff, Welcome to Copwenworld.
    You don't really need a maindealer to service the car.
    There's nothing special or different about the engines.
    Only if the roof has gone wrong would I go to a dealer.
    Any ex-Daihatsu dealer should still be able to sell you parts & the knowledge should still be there to service your car if you wish.
    It's also worth asking a Toyota garage as many of the parts are Toyota branded (have a close look at the middle brake light cover on the boot, it has Toyota on it).
    Have a look here

    I found a japanese car specialist just around the corner to me. He now services & MOT's my Copen.

    Roof adjustment needed!

    Hi, thanks for your reassurance. I managed to insist upon storing the roof with slightly too much stuff in the trunk... now the top rubs on something when retracted.

    Oh dear, You need to find your nearest ex-Daihatsu dealer then.
