    This thread is awesome!
  2. Opinions/Info required on value

    Silver was just the colour of the day when the GTI was released - just like all police vehicles were silver for a time and now they are all being replaced with white again! The details are lost in the black GTI when photographed but in person it looks the part. It was however a raven that I fell in love with back when I was about 13, and I kept my promise to myself that a GTI would be my first car

    I have to play spot the new scratch every day - the real cost of free on street parking!
  4. Opinions/Info required on value

    In my experience dings and scratches etc bare no correlation with the competency of the driver, more the competency (or lack of) of the drivers of every other car you come into contact with. Given the spec that car is worth £4500 any day, even if it is the worst colour £3,000 is less than I paid for a 90k black with standard interior back in January and the market has not changed for the worse since then.
  5. Lupo gti £995

    Who bought old bluey then?!
  6. Lupo gti £995

    At least the history is known and it's not been mucked about with. Sure the high mileage isn't great but it's got the bonus of the raven factor.
  7. Lupo gti £995

    This has been around for months! Think it started out at £2000 or there abouts and has gotten progressively cheaper as the weeks have gone by. I love the mismatched pedals, really completes the rough-around-the-edges look! Personally my £1000 would go on this: http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201707127314066?sort=price-asc&make=VOLKSWAGEN&postcode=bn18hh&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&advertising-location=at_cars&model=LUPO&radius=1500&keywords=gti&page=1
  8. Radiator fan fuse 20a?

    The front fan on my old GTI stopped working and we replaced it, the replacement was an OEM part and would blow the 20a fuse every time it kicked in so I just put a 30a in and it worked like clockwork until the car was killed. Maybe not the correct solution but meh!
  9. Wait there is some news about the Up! GT

    Surprised there isn't more interest in this. I mean it's a shame it's clearly not been built in the same vein as the Loop GTI but still looks like it could be a reasonable car.
  10. Rear Speakers OEM or Other?

    Just in case anyone stumbles across this/is interested: I bought some JBL stage 602 speakers for £26.99 on eBay, as this was pretty much half the price of getting OEM replacements. They aren't going to win any awards but sound quality is fine for rear fill and they fit behind the grills! Only caveat is they either need an adapter or you'll need to drill new holes to mount them to. Some of the cheapest "brand name" speakers I could see without looking too hard... I did find another thread where someone had used Alpine Type Rs but clearly they have changed the design since 2013 or whenever that post was made because the latest models have no chance of fitting, so the ones I bought are now in the front. Anyway, coupled with my Blaupunkt GTb 8a sub in the boot all in all the car sounds pretty good
  11. What is this?

    Was found sitting on the door hinge, so I assume it's come from around that area. Doesn't seem to have made a difference to anything!

    Have you got a link for the auto headlight switch? And is it a bugger getting the sensor somewhere it can see daylight as that's what has put me off doing it!
  13. who needs a GTI

    Love the description - "test drives welcome with proof of cash"!

    Surprised this took as long as it did!
