Hi everybody
Have ordered a new Up! for delivery next week. It's a move up in candy white with black interior.
It id replacing our much loved, but old and tired and now expensive to run 2003 S320cd1 Mercedes.
With the money we'll save we can go to the Bahamas!

There's lots of us here who gave 'downgraded' to an Up. I haven't seen anyone regret it yet.


PS they don't make Mercs like they used to anyway.

Replaced my much loved polo GTI today with High up just today, with. Little tear in my eye as I said goodbye. Up pretty cool though.. Handling really really good. Going to enjoy throwing it round the bends as you will. You will also enjoy your trip to the Bahamas! Enjoy the cheaper motoring.

It's to be different as much as anything. We had an 03 S class for 6 years and a E class for 3 before that. The E you could watch it dissolving before your eyes as it was so rusty. The S was better but still rusty. Having seen many scabby 5 year old Sprinters does nothing to convince me they are much better. After years in the body trade you soon learn what is well made and what isn't

Up the Up!
