Hello, I have been hanging around this forum for a bit since i bought my first Copen in April so i though i better introduce myself. My names Andrew and i live down in Bournemouth, always liked Copen’s since i first saw them on Top Gear ages ago, unfortunately due to practically they have never been an option when buying cars, until now. I was in the market for small cheap to run car for getting to work and back and my local garage just happened to get in a 54 plate Vivid, 18,000 on the clock, full service history, fresh MOT and in mint condition, Test drove it and bought it straight away! Since purchasing it i have taken out the old clarion head unit and digital clock and replaced them with a Sony iPod compatible unit, i have also taken out the pioneer speakers and put in 3 way Sony ones to match the head unit, "dynamatting" the doors at the same time. I have also changed the gear knob for the Momo air leather (cheap 2nd hand eBay bargain) as i think it matches the steering wheel well. You'll notice too that the cars been debagged and i have moved the Copen badge to front grill, i also changed the rear wind deflector for a smoked one (eBay) and replaced the square number plate for a customised standard one and the rear has a shiny new plate as the old was falling apart. The car has no rust but a few small chips which i have painted and I’m in the process of waxoyl'ing the sills etc. to help prevent any rust from setting in, also have some new custom mats on the way. After that I'm thinking of customising the interior a bit, maybe some 3m carbon wrap and paint the vent rings. I'm leaving the mechanicals alone for now as i can’t afford to change anything but if something go's or needs replacing when i next service it then i will try and push for upgraded parts. Any tips i might have missed or cheap upgrades i can get / do please let me know. Thanks, Andrew.
