I get my white take up! delivered to me tomorrow lunchtime! I'm really quite excited (and a little nervous). Ummed and ahhed for a while on what spec and decided to go for a base model. Kinda like the stripped back, simple, no messing vibe (let's see if that vibe disappears when the novelty of winding windows does!).
Got a demonstrator in the end. Partly cos they gave a decent trade in, partly cos of the reduced price (although not much), and partly because it was in stock! Lookers in Boston are willing to deliver the car to lancashire (3+ hours) and take away my old car for free. Lookers in Preston couldn't be bothered to search their database for me.
Interested to see what the real life mpg is. Had a fiat 500 twinair for a while and the mpg were there if you wanted to work hard at a certain style of driving, but the car was too fun to drive and rag around to get those figures and smile at the same time. Wonder if I'll find the up! the same?
Been good having the forum to see the love people have for the mini-beast. Hoping I get the love too!

Hi Danger and a warm welcome to the forum. Glad you haven't had to wait long for your up! I really do hope you love it as much as the rest of us who have been lucky enough to already have taken delivery.

Looking forward to seeing the pics and hearing what you think about the car

I am a bit of a girl but slept ok! Always up early with the 3kids waking at the crack of dawn (5am today, yawn!).
It's definitely harder than ever to focus at work today knowing that at this very moment it's being driven to my work place. Will def sort photos out (rainy ones it looks like). Thanks for sharing the excitement!

Its arrived! It's small, its white and it's good.
Took it for a spin straight away. It's very easy to drive and can see it being popular for learners.
Took my 3 kids out in it just now. Three kids seats fit in it without fuss. Loads of space and smooth drive.
Sound system is a bit weak bit good enough and great or a base model.
Can see this being a well loved family member for some years to come.
Will post pics when I get to a comp. my phone won't let me do it.

Nice pics Danger & glad you're liking the car so far. Looking forward to seeing more when the weather's better, and let's have a look at the interior too


Hi BlueBottle and welcome to the forum. Afraid I can't help re the rev counter but I'm pretty sure someone on here will know the answer.
