Mine's a similar story. I first noticed a Copen a few weeks ago and immediately fancied buying one. They aren't common at all so when one appeared at a dealer just 2 miles away I thought I'd better buy it fast. And I did. After a few weeks of ownership I am very glad I bought this little car. It's just good fun and that's what it was bought for - open top, good fun driving. BTW, I'm male, which is unusual because most seem to be owned by females.. Doesn't worry me at all. Even my kids fully approve of the new toy. M.
