    This is my first post on this forum, so hello everybody! I'm the happy owner of the (to my knowledge) first road traffic registered Daihatsu Copen in Finland.

    I got the car last week. It was imported from Belgium, it's a 2006 Euro-spec LHD 1.3, 5 spd manual, silver metallic with red leather. I have already put some 500 km more on the clock, now at 123 000 km. I'm all smiles driving around roof down in this exceptionally warm 30 deg C weather (yes, even up here in Finland).

    Everything in the car is working, but now looking for some service work to be done, at least the alternator belt is soon up for replacement. Of course, I've washed and cleaned it thoroughly and I've treated all the rubber seals. The front grille is broken and I've ordered a new stainless steel mesh version and a new radio, hoping to get to install these as soon as they arrive. Trying to find a service manual also for further service work, there seems to be one on this forum, not sure if it's applicable for this model...

    Thanks Salieri, I love the wheels too! These Japan Racing wheels seem to fit the looks perfectly.
    It's now cooled down to normal 20 deg C today, but yes, there was a two week streak that saw 25-33 C temperatures every day. When stopping at traffic lights at 30 C it quickly gets hot in the cabin even with the top down I learned :p
