Don't have it myself but lots of people on here insist that you have to get the sound pack, so if your music is really important to you.............

I went for the sunroof and I have to say it really makes the interior feel very light and spacious.

Oh, and welcome to the forum

Hi and welcome to the site!

I think must have options are a personal taste and down to cost as well but I would agree with the sports pack and sound pack opinions above.

Hi ordered from Arnold Clark, Jordonhill, been told it will be September for delivery as it will be a car that they have already ordered. Ingrams in Ayr is where I take my wife's golf to be serviced as the service from Verve and Arnold Clark in Glasgow is shocking!!!

Sports pack looks good value. What's the sound pack? From experience manufacture's ice aren't really worth it. I have Bose in my TT...... Waste of money IMHO.

Thanks for all the replys, keep them coming

sound pack is £100...gets you 2 rear speakers and 2 front tweeters to go with the existing door speakers....not fab but most importantly, specifying the sound pack means the wiring is there making aftermarket upgrades much easier.

Yes... Ingrams are the best out the lot of them. But they are not very competive in pricing, that's why I buy from AC or Verve and then take the car to Ingrams for servicing.

Didn't realise it was only £100. I suppose for £100 it's worth a gamble.

I bought my car from Ingrams of Ayr but my sister bought a black High Up from Verve of Bogside, Wishaw. She said the staff at Bogside were really great and, surprisingly, they had three Ups in the showroom for sale. My sister bought one of these and took delivery a week later! If you are in the Glasgow/Ayrshire area these guys may be worth calling.


I also forgot to mention that they gave her the Autoglym valet pack for free which was unexpected.

Verve were quoting 12-14 weeks for delivery, forgot to mention its the 5dr that I've ordered.

Hi there and welcome!I have the sound and sensor packs and would recommend both. I use the cruise control all the time, reverse sensors are suprisingly useful even given the car's dimensions and I like gadgets like computers on cars. No idea what the standard sound setup is like but very glad I went for the extra speakers. It may not be up to an aftermarket monster amp and speakers setup but it copes well with everything from Led Zeppelin (my choice) toIl Divo (my wifes's!!).
