    Lazy bugger, can you not reach over :D

    For me I prefer the outside of the Mii & the inside of the Citygo, just something not quite right with the UP's front bumper for me. .

    Yup or have to turn a key in a lock :D TBH it was the electric windows I wanted the most as I have to swipe a card to get into my works car park and right pain to have to wind a window up and down every day.

    It's the slightly different front bumper and the full length class panel that to me made the Up! a little more distinctive.
     
  3. Just out of curiosity, what did you end (UP!) paying for your new car? Plus what extras did you go for?

    The Sunday Times' top 10 city car list is out.

    Spot the missing car.

    This has to be a serious error on the part of either SEAT UK in not providing a Mii for test or something. For the Up! and Citigo to bag top spots and for the Mii to be missed out has to be bad marketing.

    Read about that on another forum, disappointing not to see the Mii in there. I'm amazed at Seat's lack of effort in pushing the car :confused:

    I got it all in for £8100 including three year service pack, and went for the convenience pack (electric windows, central locking, drivers seat heigh adjuster, light delay) and maps and more.

    The Mii A/C S with the colour pack that I was also looking at worked out a £100 more on the deal I got offered including the free Sat Nav. But the service pack was more at £300 and I could have the finance over 42 months instead of 36 that is VW is limited to. Monthly they worked out the same just I was paying for the Up! six months less.

    Unlike the Up and the Citigo the Mii doesn't even have its own wikipedia page!

    True. I noticed that. Seems there are pages in other languages though:-

    http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seat_Mii

    http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/SEAT_Mii

    You would think SEAT would make sure there was a page, even if no Brit or Irish has created an English language page.

    Don't know what the hell's been going on at SEAT's PR department in the last four years.
    It will be interesting to see how they get behind the new Leon - after failing to back their previous two key products, (before the new - and somehow underwhelming - Toledo), the Exeo and the Mii.

    I noticed on Top Gear at the weekend, there was mention of the Up GT in news section, then they played 'car tennis' with an Up an Citigo, so yet again the Mii gets no media exposure

    Had a Mii as courtesy car while my Exeo was being serviced about 2 months ago and currently have a Chevrolet Spark as a courtesy car while my Exeo is being repaired following a minor bump.

    Compared to the Chevrolet Spark, the Mii is a much better car to drive and a lot less quirky (even with the smiley face stickers that the dealer had put on it). The Spark by comparison has a terrible engine, awful sound insulation and pedals that feel like they are linked to the clutch / brakes / engine by rubber bands. The Mii is the better car by miles.

    Ohhh Chevrolet Sparks are truly terrible, I had one as a courtesy car back in December and it was the worst car I've ever driven There wasn't even a clock to tell the time!!

    Drove a Chevrolet Matiz hire car in Cyprus last year. The worst car I have ever driven I think.

    Our Ibiza was in for service and MOT a couple of weeks ago and I got a 60hp Mii SE for the day. Very good car and a worth y replacement for the Lupo. Only niggle was a hesitation when accelerating (presumable a mapped in emissions thing) and no widow switch on the drivers door for the passenger window.

    A week later, it was in for replacement rear discs and pads, which I would have done myself if it wasn't for a front sping and ARB link breaking. I got a five door Mii S that day. Drove exactly the same, hesitant, but that extra money to spec up is well worth it and I see that the TOCA special edition is identical to the SE but cheaper. Niggles with the S were no clock (WTF?) and no passenger door key hole.

    Both had a really good drive and felt well planted on the road. Room in the back is rubbish. No chance of adults using those seats and I wouldn't relish a child kicking my back for any length of journey. I'm less than 6' tall too. Good boot though, marks lost for egg box rear shelf, the Lupo one was far better.

    Would I buy one? Yes, on the proviso the hesitancy could be mapped out and that I got at least the TOCA/SE. The Sport in the showroom looked good and presumably would be worth the extra for more poke. If the Up! GT is rebranded as an FR and comes in below £11.5k with rear discs and bette rseats with side bolsters and separate headrests, it would be well worth a sniff.

    What makes you think it needs rear discs?

    I was pleased to be able to get an 8 by 1½ foot [2440mm x 457mm] piece of wood for shelving home from B & Q in my Mii this week. I had been dreading the prospect of going home with my boot half open and tied down with string as i had thougt it would be a few inches too many.

    If I'm going to be blasting, that's just how I'd want it and the red five door in the Mii brochure has them!

    The mii, great build, fantastic stereo, handles like a little gokart! Badly let down badly in my opinion by the extremely noisy and rough engine! I had a 1.0 Arosa that wasn't this bad!
