I have just taken delivery of a Blue Move Up! 5 door to replace the motorbike

I am really pleased with 'Doug' (named after the Dog in the film 'Up' by my daughter)

She joins 'Lulu', The Land Rover 110 V8 Soft top & 'Minx' , the Mini Cooper.

Caused a little confusion at the BMW Mini dealership.

My Good lady decided to get a Mini Cooper last year. Green Bower are owned by a group that has VW dealerships in Anglesey) Anyway we asked Chris in Mini if he could get a better price for us..which he did- a 5d Move for price of a 3 dr take up!

..It was delivered to the BMW Mini dealership and there it was....surrounded by £50k Beamers. A few staff did wonder why a new VW was in the compound :)

Oh, the film is called UP in English?

Was on German TV just a few days ago! Here it's called "Oben" ...

Yeah, Doug is a great name!

Got my new up! today ...
Called it "Black Beauty" (having not the horse but the Ludwig snare drum in mind) ...
Some pics are in my thread. A lot of chrome and extras ...

Had some struggles with the M&M (new and never had a navi) but now it works fantastic with the radio.

Your Mayan Blue looks really great!
Some photos?


Have a lot of fun with Doug!

I think with your lovely avatar you have the right to be "German" ...

(I noticed the spelling after my post because I visited the Wikipedia "up" site)

Love the film, Ellie, the old man and Dug ...

The German voice of Dug was Dirk Bach who died MUCH too early ...

He was a brilliant (gay) German comedian and artist (Shakespeare - Puck).

Here he is with a song of Trude Herr (famous female Cologne actor). The song is called: "Ich will keine Schokolade, ich will lieber einen Mann" (I don't want chocolate, I want a man!). A famous 1960s "German Rock'n'Roll" song everybody in Germany knows ...
