Hi I ordered a Black Up last week in Inverness, I am surprised at the waiting time I have been told Mid April early May but by the looks of things on the forum its going to be much longer than that.

I was having second thoughts yesterday!! I do a lot of town driving due to my job but I also do a bit to the west coast with its winding hilly roads also up and down the A9 and was worried about how the car will perform

I currently have a 1.2 turbo clio which has a bit of ooomph but costs a lot in petrol so I have decided to go for economy over performance
I have just read the review of the Up in the peak district and it has reassured me somewhat but I will be interested in hearing how others find the Up out of town and for overtaking

SO when will I get my new car is anyone's guess I will just have to be patient!!!

hi and welcome!I travel up to the west coast of scotland alot, my mum lives in Ullapool. We use to own a Smart Fortwo and traveled all over scotland in all kinds of weather and the smarty was by far the worlds most un-areodynamic car ever built but he still got through it! I now drive a 2011 Polo and it hugs the road in all conditions. I would say the Up! is more like the Polo than the Smart, so I dont think you've got anything to worry about regarding the stability of the Up! :D

My mum moved up there 2 years ago, great part of the country to go for a long drive! When we got our smart for the first time we toured right around scotland! some AMAZING roads up top. Can't wait to take my Up! up there :D

and you might get your Up! when your dealer said... Apparently each dealer is allocated so many orders or something like that... Mine is expected in 11 weeks if I believe my dealer. (ordered last weekend)
