Hi all - bit late coming on this forum as I bought my Copen in June 2011. All I can say is it's one of the best things I've ever done. Had a Smart Roadster for 7 years before this but it's not a patch on my Pippin I love the sound of her turbo when she accelerates. Sounds really daft but first time I saw one in the flesh (when going for a test drive) it made my heart skip, love at first sight (although I didnt buy that particular one). I've not had issues with any spares...yet...but I'm sure I'll be posting in the near future for advice/help. Just fitted a leather & chrome gear knob and a red wind deflector - I decorated her with tinsel at Christmas just to add to the cuteness factor! A lot of you may have yours as a weekend car but mine is used in all weathers, all the time. The hard suspension took some getting used to but the fun of driving her more than compensated for that. I hope you ALL love yours as much as I do mine!!!!
