I think someone has mentioned this before but our up! has now covered just shy of 1000 miles and I have recently noticed how much quieter the car is.

The 'tractor' noise whilst going up hills has ceased and the clutch 'clunk' that I know a lot of members have been complaining about has also disappeared completely.
These noises never did bother me as I always suspected they were traits of little 3-pot city cars but I guess the engine and running gear are bedding in nicely now and for me it's a bonus that all is much quieter.
It also appears to be coping much better at steep inclines too but that could be a combination of the lack of tractor noise and being more used to driving it.
I'd say that it all started to quieten down after about 800 miles.

Thanks for the update. Mine is at 600 miles now, and I think it is settling down too. It certainly seems more responsive.
