    Lupo gti classic insurance purchased!

    It is good news that you can get classic insurance on a GTI, thanks for the heads up. I just have negative emotions towards insurance companies in general.

    Another abomination spotted.

    Wont go far or fast on them batteries. Would be interested to know what motor though.

    Garaged overnight is a pain in the ass, they wont pay out if it is nicked off the driveway or road or if they do a google streetview and find you dont actually own a garage.
  4. Does it go into limp mode or is gutless? Codes would be useful too.

    Lupo 1.4tdi

    There is ( or was?) a wiki at the top: http://wiki.clublupo.co.uk/Main_Page but it seems to be down at the moment.

    You can buy a very nice 1.8T converted Lupo for 5k or less. Not many GTI ones about and so not many for sale (i've not seen a 1.8t GTI for sale in last 3 years afaik) and tbh converting a GTI this late in the day with them becoming rare and collectable will just be a double waste of money, the cost and the loss of value.

    New Brakes!! Suggestion please.

    Some VR6 stuff might be usable with mods, but not really looked into it. Otherwise I've seen custom carriers to take bigger brakes but add in disks and calipers and it ends up several times the price of G60 kit for minimal gain on a road car. Plus if you go bigger you will need 16" wheels. G60 is the most cost effective so far, but feel free to find and share alternatives....

    This going to cost you several thousand if you are paying others to do the work. You'd get better bang for buck with a 1.8t conversion.

    I really should learn to read...

    Rear discs

    Only worth doing for aesthetics tbh unless you do heavy track work and the extra cooling and brake pad options would help.

    Lowered Practicalities

    Drive on to a couple of suitable bricks / slabs / timber etc to get the extra few inches so you can then get your normal jack under. Place behind wheels on one side and reverse up with some steering lock on and hanging out the door is easier, make sure they cant kick up though.

    MK1 Arosa Alloys Help

    Unless you have 256mm (tdi, 16v sport) brakes they should fit.

    Door won't open

    Try trim off and lock unlock repeatedly while direct tapping on the mech / motor inside the door with something suitable, before going for destructive options. You can get hands on it in the door and feel if it is at least trying to unlock.
