  3. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Lovely Lupo! Only thing that bugs me is those number plate caps! White caps on the front in the black letters and yellow in the middle of the rear letters! And I like the red trim on the grille too, have that on mine, just hoping it doesn't fade like the first one I fitted.....
  4. Has anyone upgraded to a twin tone horn? If so, how difficult was it? How is the best way to do it?
  5. Today
  6. Ha, the place or the phone kit?

    anyone ever seen an sdi with ac? not sure if it's possible... where'd the pump go? yeah well warm out there.
  16. Bought a New Lupo

    I'd prefer AC. Red hot here today.
  17. i'll second what skezza said.... do it
  18. Bought a New Lupo

    Mine was high-ish mileage when I bought it. Had been serviced all along so it was sort of safe to buy Doesn't say it has aircon, and blue ones really benefit from a leather interior as there's less red things going on inside (not a huge fan of red/blue combination, but that's me!)
  19. I did yeah, they were both fine! Has a brand new battery in now aswell.
  20. Did you actually check the voltage on the battery and alternators? Some of the electrical gremlins you're having I have seen on other cars with failing batteries/alternators.....
  21. New Lupo Owner - Steering Help please!

    Two options, if I think something is broken and really cba to look myself, I either take it to Kwik Fit and let one of those muppets put it up in the air. They'll tell you what is wrong for free and quote you how much to fix it, which is rarely cheap. Just tell them you don't think it's worth repairing and you'll drive it till it fails the MOT. Once you're armed with the information, either fix it yourself or take an indy and get them do it. Alternatively, get the wheel alignment done first and go from there. Any mechanic worth his salt will spot if something is damaged. It sounds like an an alignment issue to me though. Why not raise the car a little bit if it's dumped on it's arse? Sorted.
  22. Hi I've owned a lupo for a while now as my first car, but I've hit a pothole and need some help Basically since hitting this hole, I've noticed when left alone the steering wheel jerks to the right. If you imagine the steering wheel as a clock, it moves a couple of minutes to the right every few seconds. Seems more noticeable on acceleration and braking than driving at a steady speed. I've tried to research this online, and I'm getting mixed messages between "get wheel alignment and it'll be fine" and "something's broke". What's the simpleist way to tell what's wrong? I've rang a few garages to ask about getting the wheels aligned to rule that out, but it's low as hell and they won't touch it unless I know exactly how much it's been lowered by (which I don't as I bought the car in the condition it's in). Not sure what to do here, any help would be appreciated.
  23. Bury..... Grim. All I'm going say.
  24. Bought a New Lupo

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-LUPO-GTI-6-SPEED-2005-FSH-HPI-CLEAR/192490481167?hash=item2cd153a60f:g:8OAAAOSwx4ZakCLu That is tempting.
  25. Bought a New Lupo

    Same tbh. I love a shed.
  26. Stef's laser blue GTI

    compared to what the car cost the clutch is peanuts so I would have done it if there was a noticeable problem. my 1.4 has a high clutch, I'm not changing it but it annoys me.
  27. Stef's laser blue GTI

    I only drive a few k a year so there's that too, if I did a lot more miles or needed it for work then it would get done a lot quicker.
  28. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Yeah but im not programmed like that, if it bugs me it ruins the drive, and if hill start or pulling out of a slope it really struggled. Done now for a long time. And wasnt expensive in my opinion. Compared to the the golf r32 this is peanuts to run
