Ordered a Take up! week last Thursday and hoped may have arrived by 1st March.

Alas no, and website says still in transit even though had (apparently) cleared ready for shipping at the time of order.

They are still confident will arrive next week.. me, less so.

A second car .... and wifey will keep CRV for main journeys, trips and shopping.

Jolly excited.

1 week for a factory order ......don't think so! I assume this is a dealer allocated car that your dealer has ordered and was already "in transit" prior to your order. Normal delivery for an Up (and most VAG cars) is around 10/12 weeks.

I assume then that the spec was exactly as you wanted with no extras that you required?

It's all a waiting game! I've been told that mine is in for a week 11 build - so second or third week in April I guess. Never mind...the sun might be shining by then!

Yay! Update... ho ho UP Date.... sure the first to do that verbal bit of trickery.

So, website says In Transit still, but garage says on the boat.... with them 14th March, 1 or 2 days and I can pickup.

Getting mighty close.

Both our ups showed 'in transit' as we drove them home !

Dealer has much more accurate info, he can tell when released to transporter etc.

The bad news.... website says not yet arrived in the UK.

The good news... its on my drive, and done first 100 miles. Bit different from our other car, but sprightly enough and honestly couldn't be happier given cost!

So if mine says 'in transit' just now, it could be sitting on my drive?! Hang on...I'm off to have a look!.

Dadog, thanks, I hope it is sunny so the tornado red really pops! My other half has just told me it'll snow....

Although he'll be on the insurance, I'm not sure I'll let him drive it for fear of doing something!
