Hi all,

Just thought id introduce myself to other forum members!

I've just ordered a White Move Up! Bluemotion with M&M and the upgraded speaker pack.

Not sure of an estimated delivery yet as its through a car scheme at my work and I have to wait until Tuesday for the company to get back in contact after my order online!! Should imagine it will be 10 - 12 weeks at least, and thats going to seem like a very long time!!

Had a great test drive today and was amazed at just how responsive the little engine is given its size!!

Hi wayman and welcome to the forum!

glad to hear youve chosen the up! :) The normal waiting time for delivery if you order direct through a VW dealer is 12 weeks+ at the moment, so I can imagine it'll be the same for you too. It seems like a long time, but coming on here helps the time pass with ease... although it does get annoying seeing everyone elses up arrive before! lol

Hi there Wayman and welcome to the forum.

Fingers crossed you won't have too long to wait. I've also ordered the Move up! with BMT but went for the light blue and panoramic sunroof. Got build week 20 which I think is next week and an estimated delivery of early to mid June.

You're right though, the wait seems like forever and reading on the forum about all the lucky people who've already taken delivery of theirs makes you very envious.

Hope you enjoy reading all the great posts on here and chatting with other up! fans, they're a great, friendly bunch and very helpful.

Aw that's nice. They might even be on the same ship coming over and can get to know each other better, lots of girly gossip about accessorising LOL.

Did the dealer give you an estimated delivery?

"The Wife" has jsut got back from the VW garage, went with one of the boys who's trying to offload his Scirrocco, and we've been given Build week 21!!!

That's the week after you Willowaz and we ordered the week before you if memory serves me right!

Expected Deilvery end of June!

I also got a gift from the sales chap who agrees we should get 2 remote keys!

Hey Wayman! welcome :) we've ordered a White Move Up with the works, and Bluemotion except for the sound pack. Ours was build week 17 so hopefully receive it soon, ordered it 3rd March. Will update the site about photos and performance when we can. Hopefully will help ease the wait for you. I reckon if you like, take an UP at your dealer for a few more test drives or so whilst waiting... :)

Good luck with the wait.

I'm estimated delivery around week 2-3 of june....

and yes youre right, I didnt order mine until 23rd march, so I cant believe your build week is after mine when you ordered 2 weeks before? I'd try and find out why so long for yours?

Don't understand either. I ordered mine same day as Willowaz (23rd March) & also got build week 20 & estimated early/mid June delivery. Do you think perhaps your dealer may have been a bit slow placing the order with VW?

Welcome.
Sadly there is not a logical queueing system for getting the car, it all depends on dealer allocations, the amount they have already sold and the amount of preorders placed - sadly that is impossible to find out when you order and it is a lottery. I ordered on the 3rd March, was originally told 6th June delivery (ie standard 12 weeks), I then had a couple of months of 'everything is on track' followed by a 'we have had the production week allocated , it is week 26 !!' Of course by the time that you get this far it is too late to do anything about it. We have thus gone from a 3 month delay to a 5 month delay - given our holidays in August we will probably shift that to the 1st September giving us 6 months !! I really dislike the VW system.

Welcome Wayman, good choice!! We picked up our Move up! Blue Motion last week and we love it, I thought when I first drove it that it would be strange the engine cutting out at stop position, with brake on and not in gear, but it brought a smile to my face, because as soon as you press the clutch the engine immediately starts again, it's fun! We also have the White with maps and more, drivers assistance pack and spare wheel we love our dinky up! We originally ordered a Take up! But changed our mind at the last minute when the dealer had this White Move up! With all the extras, oh and Winter pack too, forgot that
Enjoy your Move up! it's worth the wait!
