Well I know this sounds like another daft one from me but I am curious to find out the best operation of the car when new to run it in properly, so driving style suggestions, speeds gears, general care of the car etc. We have never brought new and the UP! is our first.

Ahh, that old chestnut
There will be someone on here in a minute to say drive it like Michael Schumacher from the showroom, but I would advise gentle driving for the first 1000 miles. Less than full throttle, less than full revs, not too low revs when straining uphill, etc.

It should give a good idea in the cars manual. Every new car I have had its always been treated gently in its first 1000 miles. Anyone know what grade of oil they consume?
