    ABS in Lupo

    Mate I had a Lupo 3L with ABS and now have a Lupo 1.4 Tdi that doesnt have ABS. I found without ABS the braking wasnt as sharp, it didnt effect the stopping power mind. You will just have to get in touch with the seller and ask im afraid.

    Red is my colour

    Hi all I have lost the paint code for my red Lupo, I changed the mat in the boot and forgot to write the code down. Also the car owners book is new and doesn't have a code in it. I have checked the how to section and found the thread on paint codes however I don't think my car is either Flash red or Tornado red. Does any one elae have a red Lupo? Please email me for pic as I can't seem to add one Thanks

    Lupo 3L - importing & taxing

    Yep Gameover i to got nowhere. I jumped through hoops, emailed and wrote to the world and they all said no chance. I should have bought one registered after March 2001. (I had certificate of conformity and all documents) Im not worried now though as im averaging 90mpg, saving myself at least £50 per month.

    Lupo 3L - importing & taxing

    Im sure I put this info on here when DVLA pulled my pants down for £135...... I was out by two weeks. I used the info provided by Rab, but in the end I didnt get Tax free. The bonus is im averaging 90mpg Woop woop

    Rear disc conversion

    Mate I have a lupo 1.4 tdi and a Lupo 3l, I spent hundreds upgrading my Lupo 1.4Tdi to the G60 set up, with gooved discs and race pads and braided hoses, even new Gti calipers, however it didnt really make much difference. It does look nice mind. What I noticed is that my Lupo 3L has better brakes as standard and I believe this is due to having ABS, which my 1.4Tdi doesnt have. I realise the 3L is lighter though. What im trying to say is save your money and just do a normal service with good brake fluid. If you do however want a Gti rear axle, handbrake cables and brake pipes i have a set that due to new baby havent and wont be fitted.

    Blanking egr valve

    Where are you as I have vcds and managed to set my egr to minimum, this then removes the need to blank the egr. If you blank the egr then the car will take longer to warm up, thus you will use more fuel.

    Rear axle ABS

    Do you need a rear axle as I have one with new brake pipes and handbrake cables. I bought to do the same to my Tdi however new baby equals no time :-(
