Hi fellow Uppers! I have slowly been doing small mods to my Up! and wondered how many others have done the same. I'm sorry I couldn't add more options on here but you're limited to 10, so I've tried to put the most common on here, plus an "Other" option. If you fall into the "Other" category then please add in the comments box what you have done.
I'll start.
Stubby ariel, sub woofer, boot light, DRL and headlamp bulbs.
Hopefully next will be, W8 interior light, and de-yellow the reverse lights/rear number plate light.
Cheers.
Matt

Hi Itzben. I thought you could multiple select also, when I created it, but I found that you have to add each one separately. I hope others voting read this or realise.
Cheers.
Matt.

Hi Gary. I wanted to make it a bit more comprehensive, but as I found out, 10 was the limit and I didn't want to generalise too much, but also put other common mods in.
Great minds think alike eh!
If there is enough responses, there could be a break down for each category, for say, Lighting, Suspension, Interior, etc or do you think that would be OTT.
What do you guys and girls think?

I think its cool! But 1 question maybe for admin (sorry if you are I cant remember whos who etc) is it possible to put an open box under the poll for all the "other" options, like I ticked other and I could list my items in this box and others could! I don't know if its possible.

Would also be good if people are organising a meet if there was a box at top of the thread of people attending!

Hey Gary. Why don't you start a poll for what mods people are planning or doing. I would certainly vote!

Hi Mulo. You can choose more than one item, it just registers them one at a time.
By the way, nice going! That's a lot of mods in 5 days! I'm a bit jealous, of the W8 lamp! I really want one, but I've got to spend an arm and a leg sorting my back garden out first
. The arm rest is also another good choice, and I can't decide yet if I want one or not.
Matt.

You want one, trust me! It's awesome
I've got the M+M in it when parked, then I've got my sunglasses, a hand lotion and a multitool/hobbyknife, in other words, everything that I might just need. Then I've got stuff like servicebook, manual, spare bulbs in the glove box.

Oh and the W8 lamp is cheap, cost me around 65quib total, but you will have to run some extra wiring to it. (don't know how to do the pounds symbol on my iPhone)Edited by: Mulo

Thanks Mulo. The glovebox is a bit on the small size really, and the extra storage would come in handy! I have the W8 lamp and the connector adaptor saved to favorites on my laptop for quick access. Hopefully I'll get it in about a months time. I've seen on another thread about running a wire down the "A" pillar to the headlamp switch (blue/white wire), so it's just getting the **** thing now! LOL

The extra space is absolutely lovely, but so is being able to rest your arm when taking longer trips!
I plan on running a 12 volt socket up into the armrest so that I can charge my phone in it when driving, but I've no idea how I'm going to do it yet...

My mods are rear fitted sunblinds, that everyone who sees them, thinks they are tints. I've also changed my DRLs to bright white hid effect, and finally I changed the headlights to night breakers.

Hi Mulo. Thanks for the feedback and sorry for all the questions, but I forgot to ask about your coded stuff. What have you done? I want my dealer to programme the door auto locking function on mine. Is there anything else worth doing while it's there?

Whenever I use the sprinkler the wipers of course go crazy to clean it off, but then a few seconds later they do an extra swoop to clear any running drops
