  1. OK, keep doing what you're doing then

    Bought a New Lupo

    Wasn't even an option in the UK. It was in Europe though.....

    Bought a New Lupo

    I'd prefer AC. Red hot here today.
  4. 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.....

    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.
  6. Bury..... Grim. All I'm going say.

    Same tbh. I love a shed.

    True. I don't want to end up with one with 198k miles on it though.

    2005 (55) Laser Blue GTI 64k

    It clearly adds value plus it gives space to install a photon torpedo.

    2005 (55) Laser Blue GTI 64k

    I actually wasn't thinking that.... You have the dirty mind I was genuinely thinking this will come up Sticker bombed with grey rattle canned steels and the rear floor pan cut out (for some reason, as that's the new fashion) in about 6 months time.
  12. Never even seen one? What the hell is it? It looks weird.

    2001 LUPO S (OPEN AIR model - rare)

    Give me a week or two and I'll let you know.

    Uhmmm, I don't like the sound of that.

    Bought a New Lupo

    Think it's just the angle of the photo tbh. Even so, it's a nice looking GTi. I'm waiting for the elusive one that was made for me. It's out there..... somewhere.

    What's weird about it?
  17. Rich...... This feels like it's bordering on a how to. Shall I delete? No need for a red face Great thread. Excellent knowledge. Standard.

    lupo editions: SDI automatic? 4WD?

    Fitting a 1.2 3L box in a 1.4 is the only worthwhile project imo

    1.7 SDI gearbox needed

    Possibly. I was very forgiving on the box, and I changed the oil.... only once, but I still changed it, which is often more than the majority of others out there. Amazing that VW didn't actively encourage Gearbox oil changes. I also swapped the selector seal.

    Exhaust swap.

    Big fart canon

    1.7 SDI gearbox needed

    I put in 80w90 around the time I felt my gearbox might become prone to failure. Was on about 110k miles. Shifts on cold mornings were slightly tighter but never too hard. Summer I felt it was actually smother though. More to the point, on 172k miles when I sold the car, that gearbox was still spot on. Luck, possibly but the 085 box was originally designed for EP90 I believe, and then they revised it to 80w90. Upon revision to 75w90, gearbox failures became commonplace.

    1.7 SDI gearbox needed

    Then stick 80w90 in when fitted.
  23. Skezza

    1.7 SDI gearbox needed

    It's not much to fully recon it is it? 700 quid I guess. Don't forget to use 80w90 instead of 75w90. My gearbox is somewhere in the world. Only 172k miles on when I sold the car.
  24. Skezza

    Exhaust swap.

    Just make it fit

    TDI has just gone bang - advice needed
