Hi Everyone,Just ordered my new light blue UP! (Move up 1.0 60PS manual model) with 5 doors ...and spare wheel!and expected delivery around the end of the year and getting familier with the car's features and I guess a little bit excited even at the age of 66. Not many around Burnemouth...only seen 2 and both 2 door, one in red and one in white. It seems difficult finding a light blue one or pictures of one, and hope I have made the right decision to replace my 3 year old Yaris. not many around here yet!............Davey

Hi Davey,
Welcome to the forums! I think the excitement is shared by all of us. My SEAT Mii is expected in week 48/49 this year, so we may be driving out of the dealership around the same time!

Welcome. I havnt seen a light blue Up! yet im guessing its going to look amazing. I think you'll enjoy it more than the Yaris. Ive had a Renault 5, 2x MG ZRs, Suzuki Swift, VW Polo and my up drives the best of them all although I think my Swift was prettier.

Hi, we ordered a light blue up without seeing the colour but having now seen one are really pleased with how it looks. All we have to do is wait. No build date yet ( has been 5 weeks) but I'm thinking next year now. Gone for sunroof which may be slowing it down.

You should have a Provisional Build date...ask the dealer to give you the order number and to check what code it is on the system.......Firm dates are usually a bit sooner than provisional ones though , as one member mentioned, they are re-jigging the production lines soon (hopefully for new models!!....GT)

I didn't know there was an equivalent Seat version, interesting comparing them and extras. I only knew about the Skoda Citygoand went tolook at one but they only had one and that had been lent out to the press! :-(I think yours will be issued from Ringwood Rd, mine from 'Breeze' (Tower Park). I am so glad I went back 2 days after ordering and paid the £50 extra for a spare in view of the report on watchdog last night.(see the link) I think the build is scheduled for week 47 with delivery about 4 weeks later....maybe they will arrive on the same boat & trailer eh! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006mg74/features/spare-tyre

I would have liked a sunroof....much better than air con but not at any price. It does look good however in the ad's. My temporary build is week 47 I think with delivery about 4 weeks later....but will chase them up for their tracking code so I can look up on the computer if I don't hear anything

WOW....so you have had 2 already and awaiting a third! They must be impressive11111! Yes, thanks, I will get that number/code from the dealers if I don't hear anything soon. I tried punching all the different numbers from my deposit receipt in to the box on the website but it didn't recognise any of them. When is the GT model coming out? Have they said?

But this time it's the car itself that has had the blue rinse.

Hello and welcome.

I think the light blue up looks nice, but I haven't seen one in the flesh either.

I have a sunroof, yes it was expensive, but it does look good and it works well, but to be honest I certainly haven't use it much. So in hindsight maybe I shouldn't of bothered adding it

Miaup. The up! White you saw driving around may have been mine. I was in Hamworthy recently and spent a few days in the area, visiting relo's as the Aussies say.

Would love just to see the colour! Some say the 'light blue' is almost white but was not around Canford Heath that early.....retired from Ashdown teaching a while ago. Don't quiteunderstand your "I am often parked bearer m&s" ??? but if you could give me a clue where it might be on Sunday afternoon, I'd like to see it
.....just to satisfy my curiosity on the colour or lack of it

Many thanks Miaup! I had to circle the BSG block a couple of times before spotting it and I took a couple of photos for the colour. Hope you didn't mind. Wow, it really is a light light blue, more like a polar white with a blue rinse eh. Just have to wait now! Are you happy with it & that you made the right choice?
