Hello all Up! owners,
I am going to my dealer to order a Move Up! on Friday. I do like the candy white colour, since I think it really fits the design of the car.

I am just wondering how hard it is to keep clean?

Hopefully some of the white Up! owners can help me here ;).

Best regards,

Kenneth

P.S. I spoke to my local dealer yesterday here in Denmark. So far, they have sold 195 Up's, and none of them has had any kind of mechanical/electrical problems.

I bet it's not as hard to keep as the black.

I was filling my up at petrol station today and I touched the roof and got the shock of my life, I could not belive how much dirt is there, you just don't notice it

I had my up! white Autoglym'd but it's still looking pretty filthy with the Sahara dust then a liberal dousing of rain...

I'd wash it, only I don't have a bucket yet! The bird poo wipes are great though.

Simple answer....just clean it more often, it's such a small car a damp Kleenex would do it

I have to say I wash my High Up! For the first time last weekend, and it shined beautifully. I always use autoglym products and especially the Aqua wash kit, which you apply to wet car and use microfibre damp cloth, then finish off with dry microfibre cloth.....it sparkles and when it rains the water just rolls off the paintwork in little beads....Especially good on black cars as it doesn't leave streaks....highly recommended!!

As others have said you don't notice the dirt until you start to wash the car. I washed mine the other day with Autoglym Car Shampoo and it came up really well. However, I did have to remove a lot of little tar spots, particularly along the bottom of the doors. You obviously don't see these on a black or dark coloured car.
