    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    A very big long shot I know , but might this be an ex. press car- it seems to have a “Volkswagen UK” rear number plate frame, unfortunately I can’t quite see what the picture shows....😥 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F143015918626 (I know a previous owner might have added the ‘frame if it does say Volkswagen UK, but thought it was worth mentioning) Martin
  2. Please come and diagnose my driver’s seat?🙏🏻 Martin😃
  3. Fiddle sticks, I was hoping you weren’t going to say that....😂 Now how are you with diagnosing squeaky seats....😁 Martin 😃
  4. @lupogtiboy Believe you me, I very nearly did not reinstall it....😂 @Rich I will get you to do the job next time....😉 Got any idea what I could have disturbed that would put the EPC light on?😢 Martin😃
  5. You would need seriously small hands to change it without removing the air intake pipe work....😂 Now who do I know that has small hands..... @mscherryviolet where are you????😁 Martin😃
  6. What a pain in the proverbial it is to get to😡, not a job I want to do again in a hurry....😂 I have taken a few photographs which I will eventually get around to uploading here with a description, in case it will help anyone else in the future😎 I pray for anyone else having to this task, that is dry when you do so....🙏🏻 Martin😃
  7. Good morning everyone 😁 As per the title, how do you change the OSF GTi indicator bulb? 😳 i know how to change it- but NOT how to get access to the back of the headlight without going mad or breakage as there is lots of wiring and air ducting in place which does not seem easily removable....😥 I have used the search facility on here but have not yet been able to find anything, so any relevant advise/help/further information greatly appreciated....🙏 Thank you in advance everyone, Martin 😃

    My brain isn't quite outputting things in an understandable order at the moment, so apologies in advance in case what I am about to type comes across as impolite etc.... I would explain contrast as being like two things not normally thought of going together, for example Green and Black's Dark Chocolate with chilli. Maybe in terms of your car- if Fresno Green is a metallic colour, then maybe the metallic finish of the anthracite RX2 wheel centres would pick up on the metallic finish of the body colour, same if you had an almost different colour on the RX2 rims then maybe an aspect of the rim colours would pick up/go with the other colours on/in your car? What about that metallic Corrado colour for the centres with metallic anthracite rims? Martin.

    GTI Upgrades

    Thank you for the info. Regarding what I said earlier about the logos, I am only going on what I was told by a company who refurbished a pair of rear callipers for me- they damaged the inlet threads during the work and offered to replace them with a pair of new TRW/Lucas units and when I asked them if the logos would be present, I was told that they would have to remove them if they (the logos) were still present due to trademark laws before they sent them out to me, I ended up sending them another pair of used calliper fists with logos to remanufacture.... Martin.

    The reason the logos are missing from your rear callipers is because only Volkswagen themselves are are allowed to supply them with their insignia on- and if anyone else supplies them, they are supposed to remove the trademarks....😢 What thread specifications are the inlets where your PAS delete bolts onto the steering rack? 😃 Martin.

    I would hazard a guess that “Eiffel Tower” might refer to a very non standard human production technique....😳 Going back to your RX2’s, that anthracite colour for the centres and a contrasting but complementary colour/finish for the rims?😃 Martin.

    These as an example of the colour: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F191914582738 If you go for the M3 wheel or something similar, the light tint of the genuine VW repeaters will pick up/compliment the wheel centre colour. Martin.
