    Hi All,

    I just got my cute and capable 2008 copen and very happy with it.

    Just to say hi to all copeners around the world.

    It's not easy to find much meaningful info about this cute little car, and luckily we have this great site!

    Cheers! :)

    Welcome on board Kenneth. Generally, cost of maintenence is pretty low if you keep to the basics. For the 659cc turbo version, we have been advised to service at 5K interval. Occasionally, I have heard of turbo and roof mechanism failures. So it is something to think about before plunging in. But all of us took the dive and had no regrets! :)

    Hi, so far I have only done my servicing once at DKC. It was recommended by some of the Copen seniors. But I may try others in the West area which is nearer to me. :)

    Welcome all new copen owners! Great to see the enthusiasm growing especially since this car is no longer in production and most of us will probably say good bye to it once our COE expires...

    seeing how many of the owners here are taking real good care of their ride, might be possible to renew for say another 5 years if the COE prices come down a little?
