  1. Bought a New Lupo

    after having a GTI without and now one with AC. I could never have a car without it again!
  2. I did yeah, they were both fine! Has a brand new battery in now aswell.
  3. I see what you mean with the screw for the switch now actually. its behind where you put the key in and not the part that needs drilling. Doesn't look too difficult in that case! The only difficult part i can imagine is getting the collar off the steering column. I've removed the steering wheel and indicators before so that parts straightforward enough!
  4. Actually just watched that, ha! Done a bit of googling and looking on here and it does seem like it could be the problem. From what I've seen you have to drill the lock housing to get the ignition switch out, then replace the housing. Could prove costly!
  5. I will add this to things to check. Easy to replace?
  6. No I still haven't got it sorted. It actually works perfectly fine and comes on instantly when its warm and sunny, so it's cold weather/damp that's stopping it working which is what I have been thinking it probably was. Anyone know what could cause this? Bad earth connection maybe? I know this was earlier mentioned, I know nothing and I'm useless with wiring though. Anyone know where the stereo is earthed so I can try and look for problems? Wouldn't know where to start with earthing it independently to be honest though . The interior light coming on when you remove the key doesn't work/works exactly in tandem with this problem aswell. But it works when I open the door or switch it on manually regardless of temperature. Don't know if this is significant?
  7. How much was the coilpack? On my last car I just bought a Bosch one for about £60

    Have thought about it. Its more the pain of actually doing it that has stopped me so far

    Not much to update, got a new gear knob from a mk7 golf gti, don't have any picture's unfortunately. It's hard to get a decent pic of a knob! Finally ordered coilovers, and new top mounts. Went for ST-X's over the AP's this time. Couple of just cleaned shiny pics from today. Love the blue more and more as time goes on. Just looks so beautiful in the sun!
  10. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Cheers for the wipers info mate! I quite like the red trim around the grille!

    Stunning car, very envious! Edit: Where did you get the wipers?? I struggled to find some the right size!
  12. 2001 Black GTI 87k

    I do still have them actually. They won't have tyres though
  13. Lupo Repair videos

    Dunno if anybodies seen these, noticed them a few months back but forgot to post it on here. There's a playlist of videos by autodoc showing how to do many of the things that get asked about a lot on here! Very helpful videos, I've stuck it in my favourites! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWep5LzT0sxk0hWJmmAizUJiR6WDiuWX3
  14. Sifty's red GTI

    Do like a red GTI. Very nice!

    Definitely won't be going silly low. I want to still enjoy driving it and 100% don't want to ruin it! Alloys are all about personal taste I guess and I'll be keeping the originals anyway
