I can not agree with AlanG more.I am just starting to " get my up " after nearly 3000 miles.Learning to drive a small " cc " car again! It has been a learning curve and a education for me, coming from big Diesels..Towing caravans for years.GiGo said:AlanG said:I've started driving around in lower gears to get better acceleration and to get that 3 pot growl.

Hi, just got my up a couple of days ago, can't agree with you more, lower gears give me the upper hand after accelerating away from the lights, beat a Golf off the line earlier today, although I don't think she was trying, she did have her kids in the car at the time.
Mine is impressing me too. Can't stand Polos. I had a brand new Golf Mk7 while mine was at the dealers the other day. Even that didn't make me want one more than my Up. Bigger but not more desirable.Edited by: ScrubnutDerkie54 said:I traded my Polo(not a GTI)for my up, glad I did my next car will probably be another UP !
