I bought an 08 reg 1.3 a couple of weeks ago & as a change from other threads in this section, I didn't buy it for my wife. The rock hard suspension is taking a bit of getting used to & as an aside you don't realise how bad our roads are until you drive a Copen. I live in Sunderland & had to travel to Doncaster to buy the car, I just hope that in a few months time my fillings haven't rattled out & I regret buying it. My daughter calls it the mushroom, but I can handle the jokes about its lack of stature. I've been reading this board for a good few months now, (I've been looking for a Copen since February) & so decided to join up. See you all later, Dave G.
