  5. Japanese LUPO GTI's

    It's one of those things to break the windscreen if you're involved in an accident, isn't it? Never seen it in a European Lupo GTi before.
  6. Japanese LUPO GTI's

    I agree with Rich, it's actually good for resale value. Only "downside" is that you won't find a blue or anthracite one. And as you say, it's really complicated to find a good one in a rare colour these days...
  7. Japanese LUPO GTI's

    Best colour for a Lupo GTi Why are you concerned about an imported car? Just take a good look at it (as you would do with any second hand car) and if all is good just buy and enjoy!
  8. Not at all really. People here have two sets of tyres / wheels and they use that. Maybe if you go to the mountains you might need chains, but 99% of the time you'll be fine without (on winter tyres tho )
  9. Give me a light car over a heavy one for snowy / icy roads anytime
  10. I've done longer trips than that in a Lupo and it's perfectly doable. I even find it to be quite comfortable
  11. 14" steel wheels on 185/55/14's is the way forward
  12. Jamie's black GTI

    Take them bothto a garage to do the exhaust swap. I wouldn't let it go like that if I were you
  13. Jamie's black GTI

    Lovely colour. Will you be swapping some bits over from the black one?

    Yours should have the 1.6 16v logo as well on the engine cover. Mine's a 2002 car too, October built.
  15. Options for GTI tyres

    Factory was 205/45 Rich Can't believe you need correcting in this
  16. GTI Engine Emblem Restored!

    Nice one! I have an older GTi so mine says 1.6 16v on the engine cover

    Those always look good. AFAIK apart from the centre rings, there's not another thing you'd need! Get them on and put up some pictures
  21. New Here - Lupo GTi Chester

    ^ What he said. Some people have been hoarding them for years
  22. When I did it I took the whole upper door panel off. Just make sure you buy a few new clips as some will invitably break.
