  4. Rare 2001 Lupo 3L 1.2 Tdi Manual - Now Fixed

    good, shame for someone so negligent to be in the care of such a rare car over here....

    Got your license back after that dangerous driving episode?
  6. VW Lupo 1.0 V Reg £200

    I don't envy whomever did most of those miles in a one litre!
  7. Gearbox oil change.

    hex plug? isn't it a triple square with a hole in? I had to order one specially then georgeN borrowed it and like so many, quick to borrow, slow to return. (still waiting)
  8. Change Fox battery

    that's an epic age. it does wiggle out, I have done this a couple of times.
  9. take wishbone off. decide where to disconnect ball joint... bash bush out, cut metal collar out using saw. bash bush in. refit.
  10. Change Fox battery

    i hate that bit of crappy plastic. tbh you can wiggle the battery out if you're nimble but i have never investigated what cages it in whilst it has been out.

  12. Lupo space advice

    easy. i once had four people over 6ft in a Tt. the lupo is spacious.

    hello. i dont live in Chester but i have a dk gti. also, your car looks like Pete's first one.
  19. I'm in need of a front end refresh as well. rear beam bushes on these seem pretty durable, get a second opinion. as for the 22mm, you'd be surprised how much will have worn off that roll bar in 16 years.
  20. 1.7sdi to PD130

    all pd engine regardless of cylinder have the same timing arrangement. where's the struggle in finding a turbo ? three cylinder one would be way harder to find second hand.
  21. How much should I be paying ?? Exhaust

    i presume you chopped the cat out ?
  22. How much should I be paying ?? Exhaust

    euro car parts. cat is worth money.
