    Lupo GTi (Jap import)

    Nice looking car. Xenons are not "top-spec" as those were standard on all markets

    Don't forget to do the waterpump while the cambelt is being done.

    Sorting the new Loop

    I'm not sure I'd pay nearly 3x the price for a Bosch one. I'd go for a new one from a cheaper brand

    Good job on keeping it alive Is there a huge difference in price between a cheap new starter motor and a reconditioned one?

    Welcome! They are usually reliable so yours has probably been fiddled with in the past... I'm sure it will be running like a dream in no time!

  12. Do contract. Go to the ADAC office to buy insurance. Go to the traffic office to get the car registered to your name and your temporary car numberplates. Pay the (now) previous owner. You're on your way. Get the seller to help you. PS. No need to forget about modifying cars in Switzerland. As long as all the parts installed are approved and legal, it's actually a piece of cake. Spain is a bit of a pain in the ass actually.

    Car's looking very nice, I bet it rides perfectly on the Bilstein's Also the silver one looks very well kept too, good job! There's not much more to do to your car anymore, is there?

    Update time. Winter months are usually quiet with not much happening to the Lupo. The most interesting thing that happened this winter is that the car passed it's MoT with flying colours. Gave it a good clean (mandatory over here) before and a couple of the officials commented on how good it looked. For a few months the car has been showing an intermittent EPC light on the dash. Turns out the brake pedal switch was toast even if the brake lights still worked. It was changed. Apart from that, if the car was standing for a few days it would judder around 2000rpm when accelerating which really spoilt the driving. Spark plugs were changed last year, so it couldn't be that, still ignition related. A couple of HT leads and two connectors in the coilpack had corrosion. All 4 HT leads were changed along the coilpack for new OEM items. ^ Thanks to Rich for whatsapp help and to Jon for providing the tools for the jobs So now it's all nice and pretty to be driven during the summer
