Hello forum members.

I am potentially looking at purchasing an UP GTI in the next few weeks. Thought I’d join the forum and get some information and views on the UP GTI.

I’m originally from South Africa and have moved to Scotland a few months ago. In SA I drove a number of UPs, and loved them. They are quite possibly one of the best new models from VW over the last few years IMO.

My last car was a 600bhp MK6 .:R, and while in SA I was the president of the VW Club of South Africa.

look forward to meeting up (haha) with fellow owners and interacting with the forum!

cheers!

Thanks for the welcome!

Im in the Fife area, just around Dunfermline.
The GTI ticks all the right boxes for me, may be looking at purchasing a 69 plate next week

Good luck....a wee tip, the climate control is worth it...the manual AC lets you have any temp but you are on the dials as often as the steering wheel ! ha ha

Hello and welcome to the club! Loving the Golf R, looks monster!

Can highly recommend the Up GTI, I've had mine since last april and covered 13k miles with a happy face! Not quite my Lupo GTI but almost!

Climate control is a must, keeps the inside temperature just right

Thanks, 👍🏻
Definitely adding that to my spec, I’m still getting used to the slighter cooler weather here.
The Golf R was a monster! 10s capable with all the best parts. Miss her all the time!

while I believe owners will not ever say anything bad about their own cars, everything I’ve read and watched on YT points to the same.

again the GTI moniker delivers!
