Hiya guys :)
I bought my 2012 Take Up! back in October 2013 and I think I'd posted on the introductions section on here but I can't remember.. Anyway, I thought I'd share some pictures of it on here, back from when I got it 7 months ago until today!

Here we go

Oct' 2013, the first picture of her after I'd taken her home :)


December 2013, when she was in to get her roof sprayed black, still completely standard at this point!


First picture after roof spray :)


Cheeky wee de-badge and de-wiper for the rear! Looks so much fresher. March 2014 :)


Comparison pictures after she was lowered all the way down on coilovers (fk ak street) :).. May 2014


Volksfling! May 24th '14


Test fit of my alloys, going on in July :)



Will update later on, in work at the moment and lunch is just about over :( awh..

There's more to come, I suppose :)

Looks good on the Borbets.

I'm still undecided what I think about having a black roof, I never know whether it needs the spoiler black as well or not. Either way your Up looks top!

Haha ride quality is completely and utterly destroyed to be honest.. But it's as low as it can go so I'm not surprised!

Does the new suspension hurt the insurance premiums much? I have always got back silly quotes for anything which even remotely suggests a 'modified' car

Looks great, loving the rims too! Nice Jetta in the background too!

I think that jetta is a 1991 2litre passat in disguise?

Can you tell me where you got the coilovers from and link to the website? Any issues with fitting?
I bought the coilovers from Ebay back in April for £220 including delivery charge :) They're FK AK Street! Just type in VW UP coilovers or Seat Mii etc etc depending on which you have and they should be the first to pop up!

Thanks, £180 plus £12.50 on Venom motorsport.



As they seem to lower so low unlike some of the more expensive brands I will be purchasing these. Will have to give them some good treatment before going on the car as I expect they will sieze up and rust being so cheap :)
