  1. Bought a New Lupo

    I have updated the press car thread now with all the information. Thank you for your help.
  2. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Updated thanks to matthewrscpa and JB1.0e regarding OY02JCJ. Thank you for your help.
  3. Bought a New Lupo

    I emailed them and got nothing. I will check the address.
  4. Bought a New Lupo

    Its not my car. Although I am tempted to powder coat it.
  5. GTI engine guards and sound dampening

    The sound deading is a standard part I believe. The main thing you will need is clips. It is not fitted on 1.0ltr models though. Not sure on 3l
  6. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    A couple of updates on sources (Thanks JB1.0e) and a little more info turned up about 1.4s l2upo
  7. Bought a New Lupo

    there was none for sale on ebay. Tried another place but that did not turn up anything either. Did get one with "potentially" a new press car we did not know about. Found the back issue part has a good list. See - http://www.autometrix.co.uk/volkswagen/vwd_backiss_index.html

    Need a copy of this for my collection
  9. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Ok. So update time. Now as part of the research I have on press cars. I have a folder called "more research required". This is where a car is found but it is not coming up DVLA (due to reg changes etc) or due to a claim has been made about the car but no evidence to prove that this was ever the case. Well one of these cars it has come to light that it is a press car. the reg is OY02JCJ. This one I found at the same time as a lot of the previous press cars. I recalled it from and advert for sale back in 2016 when it was claimed "Owned by VW UK", it was not too far away from where I live (Maidstone). Anyway so what does this mean exactly? From what i can understand I suspect it is L6upo (2nd one). Reason for this I have seen a spec sheet provided to the press at the time which this car had every option ticked and was in red. No other car fits as L2upo (red) has no sunroof and the others are still in existence (X907NJO). Here are the pics. Thank you to matthewrspca and Morgan Rowlands for the help on this. So does this mean other cars may fit in this category? Possibly. I suspect the red and black l2upo are strong contenders for this. There maybe more but we will have to wait and see.

    Not particularly. If you get anywhere give me a shout
  11. Bought a New Lupo

    Thats great. Now my theory is it is the red lupo gti with l6upo plate as that had every option ticked on it. The reason i struggled to prove it was it did not come up on reg check as having that plate and vw uk does not have any form of archive. So the information I have is thin on the ground/my own research
  12. Bought a New Lupo

    I do not think that's a genuine part. The genuine back box costs around £600 Before fit. Had to wait 4 months for mine
  13. Bought a New Lupo

    Yes I have heard about this car. Is there any evidence saying that vw owned it. Then I can put this in the press car thread. I have a suspicion which one it is. But cannot prove it
  14. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Where did you get the mats from. They are pretty close to the oe ones
  15. lupo editions: SDI automatic? 4WD?

    Did find a lupo se with a sunroof. Looks factory too. I did not think they did due to the nature of the se https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volkswagen-Lupo-SR-50BHP-999cc-Black-Petrol-Amazing-condition-for-year-999-00/192506696030?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D51002%26meid%3D2c0bd900097b48e8a1d4370613820d59%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D192506696030%26itm%3D192506696030&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aaead18fe-3faa-11e8-8fc6-74dbd1807424|parentrq%3Ac2c7c2b71620a86bc8fa9e03fff64946|iid%3A1
