Hello everyone.
Got back from Download Festival yesterday. Wasn't silly enough to take my up! - I would rather not ruin that new car smell with festival rankness!! Did see a silver one in the car park though!

Anyhow,clear day today so what initially started as a quick wash, ended in a full soapy wash and wax (curse those water spots on black paint)!

Here's a few amature pics taken from my iPhone:


Number plates have been badly blanked off - why do we do this? It's not exactly private plastered on the front and back of the vehicle is it?!






Missed a bit - I know!





























That's all folks!

Mattyup, please tell me you bought the sill protectors separately and they weren't standard? Else I've got a nice set of stainless steel protectors all the way from Germany going spare

I'll have them if they're going spare (and they don't break the bank). Been thinking about getting some from eBay so would save me messing around with them

If the up white has white alloys, why doesn't the black have black ones?

You car looks fantastic.....real Black 'Magic'

Beginning to wish I'd added a sunroof!

Thanks all for your kind words.

bugbabe, I'll be very interested to see some pics of your black with the leatherette - I had to ponder the choice for a very long time before committing to Stripes!

Rednax, you're right about a red special edition, particularly as red seems to be the most popular colour. I'm just a little unsure whether red would suit the chrome and 'classic' wheels.

Privatedoc (I do hope your name isn't a clever way of telling us what part of the body you specialise in!)
I too wondered why the black doesn't get the black classic wheels - perhaps it just looked a bit too black! If my photoshop free trial is still active, I'll have a play later to see what it could look like. If I'm feeling ambitious, I'll try a red special edition too. (No promises, I am far from a pro photoshopist)!

Nice one. You can PM me with your bank details if you like so I can transfer the money across. Or if we do arrange a jaunt, we could be like drug dealers and do the trade at some out of the way place (I'll be the one with sunglasses and a carnation pinned to my chest
)

No, just a GP but I have a 2nd private practice doing health screening and Private GP services.

Keeps me busy and off the streets !


Know my way round privates of both types though!

We can do it whichever way. If you want to wait until we have both taken delivery, the meeting spot you have chosen looks good, or if you want them before I can post.

I'm easy

Well..
If there were a Red up! Special Edition, it may have looked a bit like this (The red would look a lot more Tornado Red than what I have managed here!)



And for anyone thinking of painting your centre caps red, DON'T!



I think that could be why VW didn't bother with a red with chrome bits. I certainly would not have bought one!

..Of course there is always the chance that if I did get the red correct it could look quite good?
