    @cj1 Please hijack away - I have DBW bike throttle bodies waiting, if I can get them on with existing management it would be really good to know - how do you deal with the map sensor & calculate the volume of air? @Blue Loop Thanks Man

    I guess I like to keep my GTI OEM. Won't do any harm when I come to part with it😀

    V8 or straight 6 then. Normally aspirated. Fast. Very reliable. Thirsty. Old merc or beemer.

    I was intending to order an Up! Gti earlier this year, though I was not keen on the engine format - small capacity, three cylinders and turbocharged. I finished up with a Lupo Gti instead and I am greatly enjoying its normally aspirated 1.6 litre engine. I've a feeling a blown engine would spoil the car's essential character, which is largely based on a nice balance of power/chassis capability/weight. As mk2 indicates, it might be best to follow the proverbial advice of an Irishman when asked for directions - well, I wouldn't start from here.

    For swaps: Any lupo headlining for a black/grey headlining from a Lupo GTi. (please note, it cant be one with a sun roof). I dont care if your headlining is dirty or the trim is hanging off, as long as the board behind is in one peace with no bends or holes. My reason for swaps - its getting re-trimmed and I thought it would be nice for someone else to benefit from the nice black trim before it gets destroyed, there's no other catch, I dont want your money! Its the headlining only, no sun visors, no handles. I have tried swapping this since last year and have been let down 4 times! So because of this I will not hold it for you for long. I live in Hull, East Yorkshire, if you would like to swap you will have to come to Hull to do it please. No I will not go to you. Thanks.

    No, as usual the 3L is different. Smaller OD bearing than any other Lupo. Otherwise no difference, just smaller to save weight. Unless installed correctly, the ABS won't function. With the correct tools, this job can be easily done without removing the hub. A gear puller will never work because you are just pushing against the drive shaft; either the shaft or the bearing (probably the former) will eventually move, leaving the second still in place! RAB

    Been picking away at the Lupo half an hour here a couple of hours there. I have nearly reached bottom for parts being removed with only gear selector being the last thing to extract, everything around the gearbox is removed -apart from battery cable on alternator & starter. Big landmark was getting the subframe out THe PO mentioned an upgraded gearbox mount - no big bush Then my heart skipped a beat The crack was hiding within the subframe, I am thanking myself for doing the subframe now rather than waiting till winter Everything is so crusty

    Got it home finally! Not a good experience this time getting it inspected. I will not be dealing with those people again another time, I do not enjoy being taken for a fool and worked over in the pocket book like that!

    Hello guys and gals, Just got myself a Lupo GTI in black, fancied going back to my younger days and getting something a bit cool. Well I think it is anyway! Anyway, hopefully I might see some others put and about, looking forward to some subtle mods and engine upgrades. Any suggestions and ideas welcome SAM.

    I've always found that the knobs aren't really that great. Can't beat just pushing the glass to required position. Realistically how often does the mirror need to be moved anyway is the way I look at it. Retrofitting is always possible.

    Quick update, got my smaller aerial, looks a lot neater! and I sprayed behind the VW badge to match the car. I'm looking at replacing the MK5 chrome VW badge with a '3D' one off newer Golfs, apparently they are near enough the same fit. Still need to get it wired up so it opens with the handle actually aswell! Need to find somewhere to take it as I know nothing about wiring!

    Well i’m back from a long weekend at the Nürburgring, if you have never been I highly advise you to go. The most incredible place i’ve ever been, a petrol heads dream! The Lupo performed faultlessly and not a single issue! Oh and the tyre writing didn’t last, a permanent solution is being worked on. I’ll leave a few pictures below?? p
