    Stef's laser blue GTI

    Hello everyone Ive been on this forum a while, always browsed on and off and owned a black lupo gti in the past, i messaged chris about his laser blue gti that would he ever sell it i would be interested, time went by and i signed into clublupo and noticed i had a message, it was chris mentioning it would be going up for sale shortly but i realised i had my old email address on this forum so didnt get it straight away... Rookie error on my part, when i put the advert up for my golf, i knew how rare this gti was but with only having put my r32 up for sale i was all but sure it would sell before i could sell mine.. I then happened to sell mine in the space of a few weeks with a deposit left on mine after a week..praying the little lupo hadnt been sold, i got back in contact with chris and i put a deposit on it as soon as i got a deposit on the golf, all went very smoothly which was great and very rarely pans out that way.. So me and my father drove the 3 hour trip up to see it in Sheffield, was nice drive up and then there tucked away was the lupo gti, immediately made me smile, and a great colour in the flesh, we got chatting and went out in it, agreed a price and the lupo was making its way down south. For those that dont know, laser blue is the rarest colour for the gti with a rumoured 10 or so ever made, added to the fact this particular gti has air con, heated leather seats and the 6 disc cd changer, making it a very well speced car indeed. Im the 5th owner and it has just turned 65k miles So my first week in ownership of the little lupo, i am quite a fussy bugger with cars and made a little list of things i wanted to do or change.. Firstly the wheels were rebalanced as the drive home i got quite abit of wheel wobble, which has now cured the problem, i purchased little touches like new wiper blades, side repeaters as one had condensation in, new stickers for the key inserts that were missing, pic below will show this, new mats as the ones in the car were abit pants and not the correct fitment and slid as weren't held in place, i removed a few stickers, one a pistonhead in the rear screen and a k and n sticker in the engine bay, i prefer the cleaner look.. Sorry chris Its booked in tomorrow at jkm portsmouth to have a look over the car as a couple of things cropped up, the battery light flashed which it hasnt since but worth checking over and the oil service light come up, yet has just been serviced... And for me the only gripe is the clutch to me doesnt quite feel right so will get that replaced should it need it, like i say im fussy but couldn't turn down a laser blue gti that was in great condition overall Sorry for mumbling on haha, so the lupo, like i say i bought new mats that i had custom made to replicate the oem mats which are hens teeth now or an arm and a leg to buy New mats.. Replacing the old.. Little touches.. Condensation.. Been replaced Stickers removed.. And some of the car.. So thats where the lupo is at for now Cheers stefan

    So i got the car Back earlier on in the week, it was indeed the alternator... Car is all good now. Ive spent a fair bit on it, but i like my car to be spot on. But i am missing the power the r32 had and am getting itchy feet to get something quick again, being a single lad.....

    So update time.... And not a good one, the little lupo has broken down. Battery light was on/flashing, im guessing alternator or battery on its way out... Currently waiting on a lift.

    Stef's laser blue GTI

    Cheers chris, it wasnt an expensive job but one that has made the drive much more enjoyable. I think it's the little details that make the biggest transformation tbh, i was suprised myself how well the exhaust came up as i wasnt holding much hope haha Will update as and when i do bits...

    So another day, another little package arrived.. Noticed this split after cleaning the car, only ordered yesterday, great service. And i took the rest of the week off, so popped to the pub. Really do love this little car Cheers stefan

    Stef's laser blue GTI

    Yeah but im not programmed like that, if it bugs me it ruins the drive, and if hill start or pulling out of a slope it really struggled. Done now for a long time. And wasnt expensive in my opinion. Compared to the the golf r32 this is peanuts to run

    Update.. So car got clean bill of health from jkm in Portsmouth, really good bunch of guys down there, had few things to look over.. And i ended up just going ahead and replacing the clutch, it was abit vague and struggled on hills, so rather than spoil the driving pleasure i just replaced it, now its great! Next on the list was to replace the rear wiper arm and blade, the standard just didnt clear the screen very well and i didnt like the appearance of it so swapped for a mk6 polo version.. I also took the day off work as the weather was awesome, i gave the lupo a clean and went to grab some shots, also gave the exhaust a good going over with some autosol before and after to show the difference And ones on a nice drive Found a pub and stopped for a beer Cheers stefan

    Stef's laser blue GTI

    Thanks mate, i wont be changing it, not into the whole air ride vag scene to be honest Pondering on kw coilovers and rear spacers but that would be as far as modifications go, and simple to put back.

    I got the mats from a site called simply car mats
  24. sj2112

    Stef's laser blue GTI

    Hi chris, not to worry regarding the mats mate I also presumed that was why the service light popped up, no biggie, just making note of everything for this thread really, no dig. It will be looked after
