  1. new member-scotland

    I purchased a SDI to use back and forward to work but it has gradually won me over, Welcome to club Lupo. What colour is your 205 GTi and how long have you owned the car?

    Welcome to another Ayrshire Lupo owner!
  3. I had my Bilstein dampers fitted this morning, then washed and polished my Lupo this afternoon.
  4. Rear seats MOT

    A seat must be present for the seatbelt to be testable, if there is a defect in the belt the MOT tester should advise you of this. He will most likely advise that the rear seats are removed. http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/htdocs/m4s05000201.htm

    Just a short update. These arrived during the week. Surprisingly around £67 cheaper from Ebay Germany. Before springs fitted. And after.
  9. BMW E30 318i Restoration (None Lupo content)

    The car was stripped to a shell, genuine BMW wings, scuttle panel, front panel and rear panel fitted. The seats were recovered with the genuine material which was available in 1991. The photos of the car undergoing the work are all pre digital era I am afraid.
  10. BMW E30 318i Restoration (None Lupo content)

    Just to keep your spirits up, here are some pics of my 323i. I have been where you are now and restoring a car is lots and lots of hard work! Totally factory standard not even a stripe.

    Just checked the British brochure for a 2003 Lupo and the CD player was above the radio.
  12. My Lupo SDI daily driver

    CRS tailgate spoiler fitted and painted, before anyone asks it does hit the arial causing the it to bend Fitted chrome interior door handles, purchased from the dealer and GTI seats. I have the cover for the drivers seat. After some polishing. And finally with some polished stainless steel trim around vents, heater controls and door mirror adjusters.

    Usual condition gearstick and gaiter. An interior shot after much scrubbing. Finally managed to source a set of mud flaps, used though. Secondhand lower fog lamp valence found. Fitted R line badge to front grill and tailgate where the SDI badge was. I added a stripe to the side with a Gt decal, this is from a Peugeot 205. Found this secondhand on ebay, photo below is as delivered. After some polishing and painting with high temperature paint. Back box fitted. Drums springs etc painted in preparation of fitting alloy wheels.

    Below are photos taken of the car when purchased in August. The car is being used for a commute of 114 miles a day to work. A close up shot of the OSF wing showing corrosion around the arch. The following weekend in for wing replacement and repair to drivers door. Quite surprising how crusty the wing was when seen off the car, actually quite surprised to find corrosion like this but the purchase price did reflect this. On inspection this was found on the inner side of the wing, obviously accident damage from early in its life. The bodyshop that did the repair had not even painted the inner side.
  15. Green Lupo on A713

    As per title spotted this yesterday afternoon between Patna and Dalmellington, almost certain its the same Lupo I spotted several weeks ago turning off the A75 into the Chocolate Factory. Is it anyone on here?
