Hi, bet you can't wait!

When you say you were offered a bluemotion does that mean you didn't order that originally? I presume the 60bhp model, although a member on this forum has a 75bhp bluemotion but perhaps this is not for the uk?

Hi,That's not a bad little wait, someone else on here walked into a dealer at just the right time and managed to get a cancelled order of another customer and jumped the queue a bit.

Its the 60bhp version in exactly the paint and trim I wanted.To me the UP is all about purity of design and practicality and economy. For me the Move up Bluemotion is as far as I want to go cost wise.

The FIAT twinair engine is much better according to reports. Howevever if I had one ,like most of the testers I would cane the arse off it and lose most of the potential economy.The Uo body and interior design is more to my liking than The Fiat 500 or Panda and cheaper - also more than likely much better quality of build and less expensive.

Lucky you I have now been told end of July of beginning of August and originally told when we ordered on the 20th of May that it would be second week of June, we thought that was way too optimistic.

Oh, well done. Congrats on getting your car so soon


At least I'm not saying that through gritted teeth now cos I think I'm only about two weeks away from getting mine, maybe even less if I'm lucky.

Looking forward to see the photos as always and hope you love it. Which colour did you go for BTW?

To Clowesa. It really is a great little car to drive.With neither a + or -ve image.People just like the look of it and say so without asking.I love mine and have had plenty of very good cars.The car has that so right feel a bit like the original Mini so they built a fast one as will VW.
