My girlfriend picked up her brand new Move Up (in Mayan blue) on Thursday. I got my High Up last month and we immediately decided we needed one each. :)

Both me and my Mrs were in the market for new cars at the same time but Mrs AlanG thought that 1ltr was too small and ended up going for a 1.2 ltr Micra. No regrets with my up though - I love it!

I had a 1.3 Micra 14 years ago - not a patch on the up!

For anyone considering Mayan blue, I've never seen such a bright, vibrant blue in my life! It's stunning. :)
I love my red High Up, though. It's my dream Up! :D
So impressed with these cars. I don't understand why anyone buys any other small car when they could get an Up.

We're in South Derbyshire, but we bought our cars from Johnson's VW in Tamworth (hence the 'B' registrations, and my rather unfortunate 'BJ' plate) because out of the dealers we tried locally they were by far the friendliest and have the best service overall. Anybody locally considering getting a VW anytime soon should definitely give them a try. Speak to Anne Marvin-Green. She's lovely. :)
How many other Up couples are there then?

Great to see! You guys from bham?

Ha. You know what~? My ignorance on the number plate system was such that I had no clue why so many B plates were on the road in Birmingham.

My UP was first registered in Leeds which makes sense as I've got a "Y" (Presume for Yorkshire?) plate.

Both cars look amazing. The pics make them look like models set against a background which make the cars look even more cute! I have covered nearly 800 miles in my High Up! in the last 3 weeks since collecting from Cheltenham VW. I smile every time I get in my Up! Hope you both really enjoy them.

I got my first up from Cheltenham VW. They seemed quite organised and efficient. However they couldn't match my quote for up #2 so i went elsewhere for that.
