Just bought my Night Blue High Up! from Lookers VW in Battersea yesterday, collecting on Wednesday. Can't wait. I might take it on a jaunt to Wales for the weekend - hoping it can hold its own on the motorway.

Interested to hear how any other owners did on negotiation - my dealer told me 'there's not much margin' so had to haggle quite hard. I'm sure that's salesman BS though. Managed to get tire cover, 3 yr servicing and a full tank thrown in to the price - good deal?

That is a pretty good deal, there is a waiting list and nearly new models go for as much as new ones both of which show that dealers won't be generous with the discounts. I managed to get another £500 on my part exchange and free servicing. Probably works out about the same.

Hello elpablo I have just got a High UP! and I am very pleased with it.

When you say "hoping it can hold its own on the motorway" I can tell you that you are in for a surprise....... no trouble at all, the little 1.0 litre engine is more than up to the job

Good to hear - I opted for the 75PS version to give it a little extra oomph. I settled on this car as the reviews seem to confirm that it can be pokey enough when it needs to be.

Looking forward to picking it up!

You will certainly be pleasantly surprised with the performance on the motorway, it will cruise comfortably fast enough to get you into trouble.

I did a lot of haggling, and managed to get, £250 discount, free tinted windows, free GAP insurance, free Autoglym Life shine, free velour floor mats, half a tank of fuel, and a bit of a discount on my wind deflectors.
I also went for the 75 BHP BMT for a bit more power, and find it WAAAAY better than my previous 1.0 litre Yaris in every way. That was under powered by comparison.

The 75HP version will be OK on the motorway - though that's not the natural habitat for any up!

The up! is in high demand apparently, with up to a 3 months waiting list, and it's made to a budget - so there simply isn't that much haggling space.Edited by: _1S_
