After 55 years I have just bought my first car (a mis-spent youth and a mis-spent mid-life on 2 wheels). After 55 years I have just got married, to a German woman, whose brother works at a German tuning shop. He recommended getting the VW UP - the High Up (Right UP my strasse) with all the toys (although I feel that the extra £500 for the integrated SatNav, Bluetooth, Music System is a bit expensive).

This may seem extreme to some but the idea is to boost the output to around 175bhp (no idea how. I am a chef not a mechanic), remove the glass back (the best design element the UP has), chop the roof off and remove the doors. I like bikes. The wife does not. This is as close to a compromise as it gets.
