I've just been looking at the configurator and can see that the steel spare wheel is now listed as standard instead of being £50. (At least on the High Up) About time! Folding front seat option is also available on 5 door models.

I've spent a wee bit of time on the configurator trying to get close to my up white spec....to configure it now seems about £2000 more than I paid.....are VW profiteering a wee bit due to the popularity of the up! ???????

Configuring a car vs special edition is never going to be a fair comparison.

That's way they are 'special editions'. ;)

VW have discovered that there is a significant minority of people who have plenty of cash and will pay whatever the price is. They will always have one free paint for those that are budget conscious which is balanced against silly prices which some will happily pay.

£475.00 for metallic paint -- they're still having a larf!

Oryx white is a pearlescent white, rather than just a whiter white (pure white) but £900 is ridiculous on such a small car.

At that price it is likely to be rather exclusive - perhaps that's why VW are charging £900?

And would anyone notice in the real world? With all those people who still think that I drive around in a white car, I don't think they would.
