Has anyone who has their Up noticed people staring at them. Either the car is still rare or I'm funny looking LOl

People seem to be ignoring me and my little car... I have yet to see another one on the road as well...

I don't get many looks/stares. Last night I saw a local Up approaching and flashed my lights. There was no response. Perhaps they wondered what the problem was. It had markings on the side, so most probably a commercial vehicle e.g. estate agents.

I do see them from time to time, perhaps every 4 or 5 days, though I have seen several more than once, and one red one I see almost every day.

I can't say anyone has shown any interest in my car, either when it's parked or moving. There are a lot of Citroen C1s in my area and, perhaps, the Up is being mistaken for that car.

I went away for weekend leaving hubby with the car. He went to meet a friend and out in the car park friends wanted to sit in it! Then random people asked and were surprised at how roomy it is. He felt like a car salesmen lol

Yes I have had a few lookers!

Several passengers on motorways crane their necks back to have a good gawp (especially in other VWs)

Also have a bizarre Passat driver quiz me on the up! as I was sat in a McDonalds drive-thru queue (once a month treat)
