    Last upgrade before the Xmas ... I hated the stock running lights and went looking for a LED replacement. Brilliant white and no error codes, looks awesome.

    Suspension upgrade complete. About 30mm drop in the rear and 25mm in the front

    EDIT: It has settled in the front now to a 30mm drop too.

    Took the opportunity to do the front struts too with new Zachs units.

    Something that's not really well known (in Australia) or enabled on most Aussie Up!s is that there is an auto lock (and unlock feature). We take this for granted in most other VW's but it is disabled by default in Australia. I found the details online from the UK, so decided to try it on my Up!.

    Pre-change the necessary bits in 09-Central Electrics are unchecked.

    Made the changes - Note: bits 3 and 4 needs to be checked.
    Sharkie's Up! Project-up-auto-lock-2-jpg

    And works like a dream. Auto locks over 15km/h and unlocks when you turn the car off and remove the key from the ignition.

    Call it a win.

    Also, I wanted to replace the vinyl/plastic/rubber steering wheel with the upspec edition's leather wheel and had to source 1 from Japan.

    Easy job to fit and makes a great upgrade.

    Did the exhaust yesterday, this was a BIG job for such a little car ....

    This is a Milltek Exhaust made for the Up! GTI in the UK. Special import for me and the only 1 in Australia. Even HP was dubious about whether it would work.

    Pre

    Fitted up perfectly, needed a reducer to match the 2" (50mm) Milltek to the 40mm stock little pipe

    This where the stock Up! bumper needs some cutting

    and prepping
    Sharkie's Up! Project-up-rear-bumper-prep-jpg

    And painting

    And done!

    Nice work! Was that just plasti-dip or did you go with something more permanent?
