Collected my car this morning, loving it so far! The pics aren't great, I've only had time to take a few quick shots, but here goes!




























This next picture gives the most accurate colour representation of the interior, which is black (not grey as it looks in some pics):







This one has come out a bit grey:







Sorry this one's a bit rubbish, I was parked too close to get a decent shotof the front:









I haven't fired up the PID yet as it's been a busy day today, but I'm sure I'll explore that tomorrrow. Obviously it's very early days but the car generally seems nice and quiet - there were a few interesting noises from the engine and gearbox, but I'm not too worried about that after reading the posts on this forum.



Happy days!

I really like the front end of this car, classic and refined.


And this is by far the best color for the interior.
I've seen others here in Belgium (beige and brown), not liking them at all.

Nice. Have a great few first drives.

Where the door meets the rear quarter, is the metal work stepped down a bit?

And is it the same on the Ups? And I've just not noticed because mines black

That is one of the differences between VW and Seat/Skoda. On the VW the lower window rubber continues until the end of the back window. On the Skoda and Seat it stops at the end of the door.
On a black one it's hardly noticeable but on brighter colors it seems a bit odd. On a 5-door it's all the same.

Thanks all! I have to say, I'm really pleased with my choice. I know we all have our reasons for preferring the Up, Citigo or Mii, but I'm glad I went for the Skoda, and I really think white suits these little cars so well.


Now, if only this rain would stop...

I prefer to think of it as quirky

Great little car.

Re: window - the Mii 3 door is the same as the Skoda - no rear side window trim.

When I looked at the Citigo, I felt that some angles/colours made it look like the door has dropped.

Not sure why they didn't add a trim - it can't have saved much money.

Thanks Gunspeed, to start with I thought it was just the photo. Just looks a little out of sync IMO.

I do like the very black interior, much nicer than swathes of grey.

I had originally ordered a Move Up! and although I loved the look of the gloss black dash, I did find the rest of theinterior a bit grey.


Re the window finish, I think it's actually more noticeable in the photos than when you're looking at the car in the flesh. I agree though, it does look a bit odd, but I can live with that!

Good spot!

I think that stepped feature is the same on the Citygo and Mii whereas the up! runs in a straight line which looks a lot better imo.

Would not be a deal breaker for me although it does look to me slightly odd at first.
