    After the wife's leased Renault Captur went back I thought (foolishly) that we could manage on one car. SWMBO had different idea's :tearsofjoy:

    There are no cheap lease deals that interested her neither was there any decent PCP deals on any new cars she fancied

    So it was to be a used car cash purchase

    Much searching later I found this one, which we collected Friday (30th October) afternoon

    Volkswagon Move up!
    999cc 60bhp petrol
    18000 miles
    17 plate - 1st reg 17th March 2017
    One owner from new
    Full dealer service history. Last dealer service 9th October 2020
    MOT expires March 2021

    15in Alloy Wheels - Fortaleza
    Manual air con
    DAB radio
    Etc etc

    Solid candy white
    Black fusion cloth upholstery

    Extra's -
    Winter pack - Heated front seats, electrically heated & adjustable door mirrors & front fog lights
    Smartphone navigation interface

    Other than one small stone chip on the front bumper the up! is in excellent condition inside and out

    £20/annum VED - The previous owner bought the up! 2 weeks before the VED rates changed and went up to £140 then (£150 now) - so probs one of the few 17 plate Up's with the £20/year VED
    £111/annum fully comp insurance with £0 excess for both of us to drive

    We got our daughter a take Up to learn in and now using everyday since passing her test.
    What an excellent little car they are and very roomy cabin for a small car.
    If I was to pick fault with anything it’d be a little gearbox chatter but that aside it goes extremely well.
    The Up is our car of choice for any town errands.

    Just done a tank full to tank full mpg check on the up! - forgot to do it on the 2nd tank full lol
    Just over 53mpg (53.06mpg to be precise lol) for 285 miles all town driving, so happy enough with that

    Fitted a lower rubber boot mat & done the cherished plate transfer since we got it
    MOT is due mid March so as this is going to be a keeper I'm going to have the front disc's & pads replaced & possibly maybe the battery too

    Quite surprised how nippy it is TBH

    Another little update

    All 3 wipers replaced with a set of new Bosch aero's

    Interior lights replaced with LED's ones

    Front disc's & pads replaced with new Pagid ones. Rear brake drum stripped & cleaned. Brake fluid replaced.
    Garage said front disc's were well knackered but there was still some meat left on the pads. Rear drums were full of brake dust but drums and brake shoes were fine. I had the brake fluid replaced as it was overdue

    Found some info on the up! forum (yes there is one lol)

    So I picked up a new Vw DataPlug of the bay of e for less than a fiver delivered
    Vw were giving these out for free in 2017 for various models

    [​IMG]
    Downloaded the iOS app - Plugged the 'Plug' into the OBD port - phone bluetooth on - followed app log in & plug serial number - connected within 2 mins updating app with all our up! details

    Loads to play with on it
    Basic interface looks like this (which is more customisable) -

    PS 27l fuel is about 3/4 tank of fuel :D

    Happy enough
