Hi guys,<br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;"><br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;">I'm purchasing a second hand 3dr VW up! and I had a few questions about the maps + more package.<br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;"><br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;">The vehicle I'm purchasing doesn't have the maps + more package fitted. I'm very interested in adding this to the vehicle as I like the functionality of it.<br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;"><br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;">I called a few VW dealerships and they have informed me that it's a "factory fit" therefore they're saying it's not possible to purchase it as an aftermarket part.<br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;"><br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;">One dealership told me I could purchase one as a replacement unit for $1000 + installation costs because apparently the wiring isn't in the non maps + more fitted vehicles.<br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;"><br style="color: rgb51, 51, 51; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Tahoma, Calibri, Geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; : rgb250, 250, 250;">Anyone have any thoughts on how to go about getting this done? Would it be an easy job to install the unit?

I know you don't want to hear this but really it would be cheaper and much less aggro if you bought a high up on which it is standard kit. I expect buying one of these cars would cost much less than the £1000 it would cost for the after market fitting of M&M. If you look at the buyers poll on this forum the high up is equally as commonly bought as the move up which means there's loads about.

Is it too late to purchase a different UP with it already installed? Would make so much more sense both in terms of time, hassle and money...

Just a point of interest. Any Up can be ordered from new with M&M I wanted a basic Take Up, but with M&M. That is what I ordered and got.

I agree with Rickenbacker. It might be much easier to find a vehicle with it installed already.

Go well.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the feedback.

I'm living in Australia. I found a seller who won a basic up as a prize in a competition. He needs the cash and wants to sell asap. We negotiated on price to $9500 AUD (5226.19 in pounds) so it's a bargain I can't pass up.

I feel it's worth the hassle considering brand new here they are $13,990 when standard ($7673.91)
