  1. You will love it. I am on my third GTI and have run a Z4 MR and then a Z4 35is in tandem with the GTI and if the sun isn't out then very often I will use the Lupo as its far more fun.
  2. Those Halfords ones look just the ticket. Cheers😁
  3. Thanks for the response. The Xenons are the factory ones and to be fair when they are lit they have a nice crisp white appearance.
  4. The bulbs in my side lights are currently standard and as we all know are underwhelming. Anyone got any recommendations for bulbs which when lit look very similar to the dipped beam xenons. Also, what is the fitment please.

    Lupo / Arosa - Cambridge Lights

    There is currently a "new" pair listed for auction on eBay. I think the latest bid is £62 plus postage of £17. The listing has got about 3 days to run.
  6. I guess I like to keep my GTI OEM. Won't do any harm when I come to part with it😀
  7. What colour red are you opting for. I tried to find out from VW and other sources what the correct colour is, however, whilst nobody could be 100% certain the general consensus was Brembo red.
  8. I don't wish to rain on your parade but isn't this car currently advertised on PistonHeads at £5,250 with a far more comprehensive description, including some info regarding the paint?
  9. I will take both rear light light clusters off your hands provided they are not damaged and if you are willing to split them from the car. I live in Cardiff so could come and collect them.

    Its always worth keeping an eye on eBay. There is currently a set of refurbished Bathursts listed at £400 or offer with new centre caps, however there aren't any tyres and they have been finished in a Honda gold colour.
  11. Just had a look at a spare piece of the tape I used and its not spongy at all! Its non absorbent and of a type of rubber compound and is sticky on one side only. Hope that helps.
  12. Yea its very similar although I would say its more "spongy". Dimensions wise its probably approx 1cm wide and about 3 - 4mm thick.
  13. I removed the spoiler from my GTI about 2 months ago as it had the usual issue of bubbling. I would say that it had never been repainted before although looking thorough the paperwork with the car it was removed about 5 years ago to have a replacement high level brake light by a VW dealership. Simple enough to unbolt as long as it hasn't been bonded as said. I had the spoiler resprayed by my local VW bodyshop and so far so good. When I removed the spoiler it had a line of spongy type tape right around the lip which I guess helps with sealing it from water ingress. I got something similar off ebay and applied it to the freshly painted spoiler before I bolted it back on.

    Not sure what colour you are after but I have one spare which is black. It is used but is perfectly serviceable.
  15. A long shot but does anyone have a brand new one of these which they are willing to part with. Its the cover for the grab handle on the drivers door. The stock is now obsolete at VW and the part is not stocked by Heritage or Classic parts.
