Hi I'm new to the forum. Ordered 1.0 75PS candy white high up 5 door with spare wheel on 02/12/2012 and have Build week 4which is week beginning 21/1/13 I think. God the wait is awful -I'm definitely obsessed withthis car!Think I have read everything that has ever been written about it! I guess you all feel the same.

So you will know there's a few downsides like soaking wet windows on the insides. You can get wet when you open the door if there's been rain, etc. Lots of positives though. Acres of space and lovely, willing little engines. Good fuel economy and negligible road tax. Yay!

Well worth the wait, and I do know a few updates have been put into practice on new builds so hopefully less potential issues. At least you should get it when theweatherimproves a little, nothing worse than having a new car and it getsfilthythe same day..

How long after ordering did you get a build date confirmed (by dealer or on line tracker)?

Thanks for all the replies and advice! I had read the information about water getting in etc and will just have to be careful, oh and remember! The dealer phoned me a week or two after I had ordered the car to let me know build week. Wish I had orderd sound pack but alas too late now unless prepared for another long wait. Hope would get car mid Feb but seems I would be better to waut then until 1st March for new reg?

I am sure you will be a very happy girl when you take delivery of your new car. Don't take too much notice of the adverse comments, the Up! is a great car. I have experienced none of the issues raised and am perfectly happy with the sound and lighting. Don't be tempted to modify the car just drive and enjoy it.

6 weeks from order to delivery is fast - was yours a factory order or one already in the system but not allocated? I have an ASG on order and have been quoted 3 months.

No one was more surprised than me. When I ordered the car I was told eleven weeks delivery which came to last week in November. The build date I was given was week commencing 15th October and by the end of the week after the car was in England. I can only assume that as the ASG had just been launched my spec was already in the system.

What mods do you know about Jez?

I have heard of a gearbox mod and ECU tweak, also addressing quality issues with windscreen - although leaks have been rare.

What's that about the windscreen? I've noticed that my windscreen seems to vary in optical quality.
