    also i find filling with atf instead of the vw green **** provides a longer life due to viscosity of fluid.

    they wear out and the plastic becomes too worn to remain on the stub, best change the link, they are often for sale on ebay

    Hi everyone, This may fall on deaf ears but I used to own a 2001 silver Lupo GTi (Y356GHU). I was wondering if anyone has it now that is still on the forum? Would be great to see it and hear about the life it has had since I sold it around 5 years ago? Cheers, sam

    I like the side skirts, not keen on the fins. One thing that's bugging me is the GTI logo on the skirts looks too big for the area it's on. Think it would look better as a vinyl sticker that doesn't protrude as much as a badge. Good to see some creativity though!

    What I meant was the suspension is lowered 50mm on coilover suspension from standard setup. So with the same wheels as you with the tyres above I have no issues at all.

    Those always look good. AFAIK apart from the centre rings, there's not another thing you'd need! Get them on and put up some pictures

    get whatever you fancy, maybe an elring? just clean all surfaces, follow the torque sequence and don't overtighten it.

    Looking forward to it, especially the leaderboards. How will the scoring work? I hope it's different to the current "get a friend to like all my posts" !

    I've just been doing this job at the weekend. There were the common rust spots on my car, Roof front left edge in the gutter, and both back arch sills. All I did was sand it down to metal, worked out the rust wasn't terrible, fill it in with filler (the usual golf ball to a pea) and I took my time on masking it up once prepped. Primer on, nothing special, more sanding, then more primer to build the layers. Waited for it to dry and put the first layer of topcoat on. Weekends work really. Leave it to dry for a week like I am currently. Then I plan to add another layer of the topcoat (blue in my cased mixed at a specialist paint place for about Β£17) and just spray the area smoothly basically and make sure it doesn't run. Once I have finished that, I will use teacut to smooth the edges to blend it. I'll post photos if anyone wants. I've started the work but haven't finished it quite but I think it looks alot smarter than it did as It looked tatty before I did it.

    I've heard back from the bodyshop, after reviewing the photos they believe this is a corrosion issue as opposed to a paint issue (you dont say!) and they have asked me to take the car in on Friday afternoon for a closer look. Unfortunately, I'll be 3 days over my 12 year warranty by the time I get to the bodyshop...although if they do dispute this, I shall argue that my initial warranty claim was made last Friday, so a few days before the 12 year deadline.

    that's going to be expensive to get back on the road, full side of pannels, rear wheel is squint and rear exhausts are bent down so probably hit a high kerb hard from behind so several grands worth of driveshafts, diff, exhausts, suspension wheels etc. could be needed
