    Genuine.Lupo GTi alloys

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Yea its very similar although I would say its more "spongy". Dimensions wise its probably approx 1cm wide and about 3 - 4mm thick.
  4. 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.

    Roof gutter

    Not sure what colour you are after but I have one spare which is black. It is used but is perfectly serviceable.
  6. 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.

    Wanted - Boot bump stops

    The full retail price is £4.39 plus VAT. I bought one recently as strangely I too was missing the rubber end bit.

    Brake Light Switch

    Morning all. I had the rear spoiler on my GTI resprayed this week due to the usual bubbling and at the same time I replaced the high level brake light and connector with a new OEM ones. Tested the new high level brake light worked before I put it into the spoiler and reassembled it on the car. All was good. I didn't drive the car until yesterday and on start up there were no brake lights and the EPC light came on after a short while. I have checked the fuse and thats fine. I have just removed the brake light switch as I am guessing that is the issue rather than me messing something up when reassembling the rear spoiler? The plunger on the switch is pretty still and doesn't spring back fully when depressed. Is this the norm for the switch before I replace it or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    I find this thread fascinating. The amount of time and effort you put into this is fantastic.

    Bought a New Lupo

    I believe the guy who was advertising it recently, who presumably the OP purchased it from, stated in his ad that he believed it to be a launch car in respect of the introduction of the 6 speed gearbox.

    Stef's laser blue GTI

    Looks good. Any plans to return the heater controls, fan and headlight switch back to OEM?

    GTI floor mats (non GTI considered)

    Did you sell these after? I am looking for a second hand non GTI set, preferably in black, which I can put into my car in order to save wear and tear on the originals whenever it needs to go in for an MOT, service etc.

    Water in passenger footwell - stumped!

    Quick update. Speaker pop riveted back in with 4 rivets the correct length (thanks lupogtiboy) and a liberal amount of bathroom silicon (thanks Rich) and hey presto leak fixed. Happy days
