Hi everyone,
I've just joined because I see great community here and a wealth of knowledge about these little cats. I live in a Melbourne Australia and these cars are still pretty scarce here. I've always loved hot hatchbacks and one I saw the UP I had to have one.

I own a silver 4 door 2013 UP MPi. Over lowered it with Blueline JOM Coilovers and fitted 14" RAYS TE37V wheels. I'm hoping to eventually install a custom exhaust and intake but I'm not really sure if I'll end up losing power if I do. I'll be asking around for advice in these forums.


Anyone else here from Australia?
*Pictures coming soon*

Up! Owner from QLD

Custom muffler (loud but legal... for now)
Ebay coilovers (helps chop civics on mountains)
Stickers everywhere
1800w sub

Needs wheels and maybe a roof rack with a thule pod but yeah, basic NA mods.

Highly recommend a custom muffler, has a nice purr and no noticeable power change. Put some octane booster in for a good punch. Be sure to follow the ratio well though

Sooo I was on hiatus for a while but I'm back now. Unfortunately I had to sell the TE37V's because I could not solve the issue of them hitting my tierod ends on full lock.

Anyhow, I've got some new Enkei 92's on now and I actually think they look better.


I will take your advice about the octane booster tho. I also do plan on putting a new mufler/centrebox on it. I don't want loud, but I do want a nice note.
