Ordered my Up but delivery uncertain - lousy detail on UK order status site - "build date assigned" - which century?Anyway, I'm an American now in the UK (married to a Brit) and this will be the smallest engined car I've owned (I have a 5.4L AC Cobra I built in my garage).
After my years with UK roads I stuck with normal suspension and 15" wheels:
High Up in white
All the packs
Sunroof
Better speakers
And a spare key (2nd proper folding/remote) which cost me over £150!!!!!!!!

If you like big cars with big engines how come you ordered an up!? Seems a bit like a millionaire proudly buying a bedsit in Hackney. You just know they're going to hate it.

I suspect because in todays Britain, big engines are irrelevant due to fuel costs, insurance, tax and the fact you cant use the power on the conjested roads?
Im sure youll enjoy it, small cars are fun in a way no big car can ever be.

Get some pedals fitted!

Seriously, it's a good car and fun to drive. It sort of reminds me of the mini (austin), but much better.

I love my little Up!, is like a mini sports car, the wait is the worst. Just started another wait for a BMW 116i for March the 1st to replace the Leon, the wait sucks lol

two to three weeks. It depends on when VW find a spot on a transporter to your dealer and then the dealer has to do the pdi, tax etc. Your dealer should be able to tell you more.

Badger them, I made an annoyance of myself and had it on my drive less than a week from it landing on UK shore, oh and I'm about 300 miles from the port.
They should be able to prebook a slot on a transporter now they know when it's due, so it shouldn't be an issue.

At least they promised me some discounts...
