OK....

So My initial thoughts on the up!

Build quality is 100% VW in every detail with quality in both the look & feel of just about everything really!
The engine springs to life with probably a little more noise than the Lupo it replaces but on tick over the interior is once again quiet.
The engine revs freely and pulls away with no effert or excesive revs required. At normal road speed i.e. upto & at 30mph the car is very quiet with little or no road noise. Leaveing the 30mph restrictions and heading into the back roads from Colne to Skipton the up! is an absolute delight. It accelerates very well from 25 upto 50 and why anyone would think this car unable to overtake is beyond me!. Cornering is great with little or no body roll and the car flows round the bends like a go kart on a track! granted it does not smooth out the bumps like a larger car might but thats not what the up is built to do!.

After a round trip includeing several types of road I would have no hesitation about setting off to visit friends in Spain, so looks like a ferry crossing will be booked for the back end of the year!

If you are reading this before you get your up!

well....

just ......




its worth the wait!

That is one gorgeous car, the interior is fantastic. Mind you, the seats are so light I'd be scared they'd get grubby every time I sat down.

**** those wheels too, I'm now starting to want alloys again


And the view, fabulous! Don't know where it is but if it's one of the finest in the UK it has to be looking out over the Yorkshire Dales

My location guess is Mallerstang edge. Somewhere on the edge of the Pennines anyhow. Great pics and nice review, thanks.

Car looks great, can't wait to get my tornado red high up
(this week is its build week), but if it is not to the specification I ordered
I will be devastated and it will be rejected.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

Ah, the views of the Yorkshire Dales (even from
Lancashire
), lovely
