  1. Hi So I have not had a lot of luck with these. The first one I bought did not work. 2nd one has a bit of a strange issue. It powers up fine, it loads and ejects fine. However when trying to operate it from the radio. It comes up with the error "No Cd changer" even thoughts its plugged in. Any ideas what could cause tis and any fix would be appreciated.

    Re-installing a 6 cd changer issues

    Interesting. I did get a spare headunit with the 6 cd changer. But I don't have the code for this. A visit to vw maybe required.

    Nope. Defiantly not. Not Oxford registered for a kick off. I knew one of the previous owners of this car.

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    I mentioned this a while ago. So today I had some time and I have compiled every photo I could find of lupo press cars. With thanks to the following sources Ebay Men and Motors YouTube channel Top gear (old and new) Honest John Parkers Car Enthusiast. Drive Tribe Youtube RAC Autocar Gumtree Pininterest Lee Cooper (Facebook) ClubLupo Volkswagen Audi Car magazine The Golf Autocar Vwm Magazine Exchange Car Magazine What Car Magazine Vw Lupo Owners club facebook (not maintained or affiliated with clublupo.co.uk) Morgan Rowlands (Facebook) Blade (ClubLupo) matthewrspca (Clublupo) Volkswagen Driver JB1.0e (Clublupo, for the tip on Volkswagen driver) Matthewrspca So lets start with the easiest ones. The ones where we have registrations for. (Not L*UPO series) T61DBW. As appeared in Car Magazine in June 1999 as a comparison test against the Toyota Yaris. Also featured in What Car? July 1999 against a Ford Ka. It is 1.4s, it does have a three seater bench seat fitted, also unusually had heated seats fitted too and Air Con. Dvla cannot find anything but it was on the road as recently as February 2017 (Scrapped) T62DBW. As appeared in Volkswagen Audi car magazine and Top Gear Mini Test (August 1999). It is a 1.4s with a rare three seater bench seat fitted and heated front seats. UPDATE - Since found a current picture of the car. It still retains its original 3 seater bench seat. But It looks like it has been modified with lowered suspension and 15" wheels (according to advert). Pic since added. Advert is on last post. Needs a new gearbox.. T63DBW. As appeared on Men and Motors. Its a 1.4 Petrol. This car has since been scrapped (2009). Although however the mileage was low at 27000 miles when the car was scrapped. So I think I am safe in saying it must of been in accident X554CBW. As appeared on a VW accessories brochure. It is a 1.4 Sport. Sorn since 2013. It had a votex grill (similar to ABT) and spoiler fitted as an option. MAJOR UPDATE 11/3/2018. See last page of thread. Also this had light grey interior. X904NJO. As appeared in What Car? April 2001 against a Citroen saxo. Also appeared in Car Magazine April 2001 against a Peugeot 106 gti. Still on the road as of 5/10/2017. X907NJO. As appeared on old top gear with Vikki Butler Henderson testing it and several magazine articles (probably the most well known). Also appeared in the last article about the Lupo Gti (autoexpress 24th January 2006 "Canned but able"). It is a 1.6 GTi. Been off the road since 2009. Y924DWL. As appeared on Men and Motors being tested by Richard Hammond. It is a 1.6Gti. It had leather interior fitted. Still on the road as of 28/8/2017. Update. After running through the registration plate through a free check it came up with a private plate. It turns out it was Alex's (Aka Fatttty) old gti. Here is the build thread for this. Y937DWL. As appeared in Car Magazine July 2001 and What Car August 2001. Both Multiple comparisons of cars (both had minis in the test) Still on the road at of 5/10/2017 Y938DWL. As appeared in Autocar Vw Lupo Gti vs Vw Golf Mk1 gti and Autocar MG ZR vs Lupo Gti. Did a regcheck and came back as nothing. Could be scrapped or on a private plate. OU03EZZ. As appeared on top gear in the tdi vs petrol challenge and magazine articles. It is a 1.4 Sport (not sure whether it was accurate considering it would of been better tested against a 1.4s). Still on the road as of 28/8/2017 *** New find*** To be honest. This one I heard a rumour back in 2016 that this was a press car. But no evidence had come up until recently. Thanks to JB1.0e and Matthewrspca. This has now been cleared up. It was used in Volkswagen Driver Magazine to review the 6 speed box. Here is a pic of the article and how it stands today. Still on the road as of 17/5/2018. Whether this is L6upo or not remains to be seen (no evidence as of yet, but it does every option like L6upo)

    Vw Lupo NOS parts

    Ok. I spotted on facebook the other day. A few days ago it looked like vw heritage is now stocking parts but I cannot find them anymore on there website (unless you want the aero wiper kit out of stock) There is three pages of parts but not everything. Here is the german site. It does mean you can order Cambridge badge and gearknob to convert your se to full Cambridge spec. Link below. https://www.volkswagen-classic-parts.de/en/

    VW lupo leather seats and leather door cards

    No probs These sets are from early Lupo and they only did this for a couple years before they withdrew them and went to gti seats with leather/colour concept leather

    VW lupo leather seats and leather door cards

    I had a similar set. The only difference between yours and mine is mine had the side airbags. I would say between £250 to £300 I sold mine for around that but mine had cigarette burns on the rear seats
  13. According to autoexpress the release date about mid-2013. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/62113/t-z-new-cars

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    A little bit of a thread update. The new re-search tool I am using turned up some information about one of the press cars that went off the road back in 2009. Its scrapped. Which possibly makes it the first one to be scrapped? Anyway. Still the search must continue

    The press car thread

    Hi all So the press car thread. I thought I'd put this out there to gauge interest. Now the title sounds a little odd but bear with. For a while I was able to carry out a check on a car for free which gave me the information I needed to discover where a car was a press car. Now with a normal reg (t62dbw As a example) we know this is a press car as it featured in magazines with no private plate. However with l4upo plate as an example it is a lot more complicated and it can be pot luck if we find the right plate. A good example of this is t35dwl. I had a suspicion it was a press car but it had a plate change. The reason how i found this car was a press car was because i remembered who owned the car now and it new plate which gave me what I needed to know. (At the time) So for a while I have saved pictures of several cars I suspect could be press cars. But cannot confirm if this is the case. With the search I was using it would give dates when private plates where changed. However the charge for this now is £14.99 for one car or £20 for three cars (full check) So this is where the above question comes in. Would there be interest in funding the thread? Or a alternative to the above which is cheaper or even free?

    Edit. I found a alternative for free. So the poll is irrelevant for now

    Something rare in the UK

    Ok. Sounds a bit odd the title. But was going to a local boot fair and spotted a fresco green lupo. Now what's special about this? In the UK they where sold as SE. Well in other countries they where sold as Cambridge and had more options. Which make this very rare. Its a 1.4tdi with open air roof in fresco green. Very rare. I just had to get some pics

    Corrosion on a Gti

    I concur. There is a guy on Facebook breaking a black Lupo gti and he has doors so this may help

    Another abomination spotted.

    I am sure this appeared on here before. It was another person who posted it. I like the idea but it needs more development.
  23. lupo1.0se


    It did have it. But I recall at the time only one person requested it. Not sure if it is really needed
