  1. Japanese LUPO GTI's

    If you want a particular colour. This will be a problem and blue and anthracite never where sold in Japan. Red, Silver or black only. The Radio is not as a standard unit as this is swapped before sale. (I have seen pics of Japanese lupos and they come with mini disc players) If you want a sunroof or leather interior I don't think this was an option (unless I am proved wrong)
  2. I found this on the below website whilst doing press car research. The total according to this website is 6370 Of this the website states that Germany had 1580 UK had 1000 From this website he was able to tell us how many where produced in each different colour (registered up to 2009 for UK) Also there is a picture of GTis being delivered. Looking at the pic I can tell they are right hand drive examples (either for Japan or UK) cannot tell the age of the pic https://www.drive2.ru/l/6331333/?utm_referrer=https%3a%2f%2fwww.google.co.uk%2furl%3fsa%3di%26rct%3dj%26q%3d%26esrc%3ds%26source%3dimages%26cd%3d%26cad%3drja%26uact%3d8%26ved%3d2ahUKEwjolP-D1P_XAhXqI8AKHfhhDzAQjhx6BAgAEAQ%26url%3dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.drive2.ru%2Fl%2F6331333%2F%26psig%3dAOvVaw08_iq5WE0f5PY8gZo4nK7Q%26ust%3d1513002485883461&fa821dba_ipp_key=1512916207565%2f3%2b%2bAyV8ldeBHVW8L0N4p7A%3d%3d&fa821dba_ipp_uid1=1512916207564&fa821dba_ipp_uid2=94HrAe1tgYJD2Nu3%2fbamb5xMWpUZARw7w5XLeaw%3d%3d
  3. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Ok. I have checked on both old style plates and new styles. All Vw press cars are registered in Oxford. So if you have an Oxford registered Vw Lupo. It might be worth checking its history.

  5. Jamie's black GTI

    Sorry. It might of been AutoTrader.
  6. Jamie's black GTI

    Saw that on ebay. You got that for a good price. Possibly the last ravern blue gti (as in 04 they did not offer it. 05 is laser blue)
  7. According to autoexpress the release date about mid-2013. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/62113/t-z-new-cars
  8. Wait there is some news about the Up! GT

    Ok. To update on the yellow up gti on the front of top gear magazine. It is a Photoshop. Looked at the magazine today and it had the same reg as the red one tested. Sorry
  9. Wait there is some news about the Up! GT

    Ok. To update. The German configurator is up. So you can have a play but its in German https://www.volkswagen.de/app/konfigurator/vw-de/de/der-up!/30100?page=trim&intcmp=CMSFindenKaufen-shopteaser01-konfigurator-startseite Options are fairly fin. Climatronic is an option and some generic items (mudflaps, maps, roof storage etc) But this leads to some questions Costa Azul blue is unavailable. Is this happening? Sunroof is not listed although quoted else. I heard a rumour it was available on the swiss configurator. Although I have seen no evidence of this as yet. This one is a rumour. On the front to this months top gear magazine. You can quite clearly see there is an up gti in yellow. I have not idea if this is true or not but you can judge for yourself. See update in next post https://www.topgear.com/car-news/top-gear-magazine/whats-top-gear-magazines-car-year-2017
  10. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Update on L4upo (T35DWL) (green sport with no open air sun roof) L5upo (OW51LCZ) yellow sport L6upo (T66DBW) green 1.4s The info I have found out is when the plates where transferred from the vehicles. Interesting on the search I found that most of the Vw press cars are registered in Oxford.
  11. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    L4upo green sport updated and L6upo green lupo updated.
  12. Options for GTI tyres

    The 205/45/r15 I could find where toyo and a random brand. Both where summer tyre only. So i ended up going 195/45/r15 I have heard of people fitting 205/50/r15 but these rub from what I have been informed. If anyone does hear of any other brands doing 205/45/r15 then if you can put them up that would be great
  13. Wait there is some news about the Up! GT

    Interesting update appeared on one of my local dealers facebook page. Apparently they are getting one in December. Here is there page. https://www.facebook.com/EuroCanterbury/
  14. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Minor updates on X904NJO and Y937DWL.
  15. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Pretty much what I suspect. Thanks Lupogtiboy Thank you. It took a long time. I am looking for the magazines but ebay prices are a bit rich. So no progress at the moment. Would like to do more but cannot really.
  16. Red lupo gti Ashford,kent

    Spotted driving into lidls 05 plate. Lowered with stefan wheels
  17. Lupo GTI winter tyres

    Yes but this will rub. Finally someone asking the same question I had when I was buying tyres for my GTi. What I ended up doing in the end was buying 195/45/r15 tyres. I bought these more spefically, It is an all year tyre which for me is ideal as I can use the car when I like without changing the wheels round etc (I only do about 4000 miles a year in the GTi). https://www.blackcircles.com/catalogue/falken/ziex-ze-914/195/45/R15/V/78/f?tyre=31733233
  18. Lupo Gti - Janspeed or Custom exhaust?

    4 weeks is better than oem. Try 4 months for a oem back box. Not stainless
  19. Haynes Manual

    Nope. No Haynes manual for the lupo The closest you can get is mk5/6n2 polo
  20. Images

    More than likely. Photobucket changed there rules so it now costs a arm and a leg to display photos. Some have changed to a uplodader on the forum (I have). Most have not.
  21. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Edit. Ignore my last response as it is a ravern blue gti I noticed. Just checked mine and this is all ok. I would contact the DVLA at that is clearly a mistake. What I have noticed on how many left is something happened on that year on 1600 ta fastback and the registrations spiked by about 200 cars. Maybe this is where your car comes into this. https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/volkswagen_1600_ta_fastback#!manufacture
  22. Lupo boot storage tray?

    That should go in the spare wheel well. It sits perfectly in a full size wheel (not 14" 7J starlite) in the boot
  23. Vw Lupo Press Cars

    The easy way is to check you chassis number. If it had a w in it then yes it would be wolfsberg. Red I is a indicator to this too. Not sure on the last question
  24. There is a Lupo Gti Buying guide in there. Only found this out today. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Evo-magazine-NOV-2017-RS5-vs-M4-vs-C63S-Lotus-Exige-Cup-380-VW-Lupo-GTI-more-/352160003049?hash=item51fe5f33e9:g:uX4AAOSwl75Zr~YA
