Ive been thinking the same, would like to fit a set of rims to my UP white. I,d like black spokes with a polished rim, maybe 17,s to fill the arch out, does anyone have any images ??

I've justwashed my new Up! White for the first time. It is the easiest car I have ever washed in my life. What surprised me was how easy it is to clean the wheels. I only used a wash mitt and a bucketful of hot water containing a little washing up liquid. The wheels on the Up! White seem to be made of enamel (probably a coating) but the muck just fell off and the chrome outer rim came up as new.


If you can afford whatever they are then "I commend them to the house"as those politicians are so fond of saying.

You should not really use washing up liquid because of the detergent contained within. Invest in an autoglym starter pack from a local car store ~ makes all the difference. Edited by: 911sse

The car is going in for a completeAuto-Glym treatment tomorrow. I didn't want it to go in looking scruffy after just one week. I couldn't see washing up liquid doing any harm. I hope not anyway.

I suppose I could have used my jet washer, but I am wary of using a jet washer anywhere near tyres.






My car goes in for an Auto-Glym treatment tomorrow and it has to be there all day. It seems they soak the seats and carpets etc. They are giving me a loan car (an Up! but I don't know which one)for the day. So that should be o.k. I will have a quick trip across to Germany in it for the day, just to use all the fuel up(joking).

Yeah, washing up liquid is bad - high salt content. Just washed mine and used AutoGlym Aqua Wax for the first time. Used lots of car products before but this is excellent stuff. Really easy to use.

washing up liquid will just strip any wax you have put on off the car. And ruin your hands if you dont wear gloves,... lol
