Hello everybody,

Time for me to show you my High Up! 75HpBlueMotion Technology
I`m from Riga (Latvia) and my car was the first private customer registered Up! inBaltic's


I bought the car before I had the first test drive and even saw it in real life.
I just new there is nothing better in the competition.

Ichosethe car in white exterior with dark interior and silver pearl dashboard (perfect and practical combination)
From the optional equipment I added:
air conditioning
heated front seats
sound plus
comfort package (board computer, rear parking sensors, cruise control)
spare wheel

I have made one upgrade -bought original rubber carpets
First planned upgrades:
will change bulbs from yellow to white light
tint rear windows

I have this car already for 2,5 months, ~3000km's on odometer and still the fuel consumption get's lower - average - 4.1 l/100km (mainly city drive)

Ok, time for few pictures (interior pictures will follow)

Aspromised, more pic`s.

My opinion - silver dash color matches front seat "leather" finish.




Yesterday wee had small local VW enthusiast meeting.
Guess you also noticed small items I've installed:
mob.phone holder
dual USB charger in cigarette socket
Ps. I work for Baltic VWimporter, that's how i know the fact I'm the first owner.

Nice, what bulbs did you use?
I searched for 7443 LED in ebay. My example is not the best, because it light is pretty weak.
ronhap said:
And do you have the part number for the engine protection?
The engine guard was specially made for my Up here in Latvia. If there is an interest, I can ask, maybe they will send some guards to UK.

Hi B82ry. Good choice with the Bluemotion! I also have one and think it's awesome! I like the mods you've done to your car, and thanks for the picture of the roof spoiler. I couldn't make my mind up whether to go for one or not. It certainly looks tempting.
Keep up the good work and keep us posted with any future mods.

Yes, the roof spoiler is a bit longer and goes a bit more up than standard one.This is what I waned to have, not a vulgar wing (like from Need For Speed)


Yes, it is glued on the original roof spoiler.
