Virgin Atlantic: Any Luck With Bid for Upgrade PE to Upper?

Last week I had to book a fairly last minute flight JFK/LHR/JFK. Upper return would have been in excess of $7000 so I opterd for PE. I usually fly Business Class so am not too excited about this.

I was thinking about upgrading the LHR-JFK flight and took a look at the Bid for Upgrade option. Right now suggested bids are $800 Fair; $1000 Good; $1480 Excellent. Seems steep but it is Marathon weekend in London.

Has anyone tried and had luck bidding or am I better off trying to secure a paid upgrade at the airport?

I should mention that I took about a 10 year break from Virgin after a truly horrific flight in UC (food poisoning on the flight out; extensive delays on the return) so I have no status or miles. I like to think of this as my starting over flight with Virgin.
