    Example WVW ZZZ 6EZ 2W 123456 WVW - VW Build ZZZ - Filler in European markets, but emissions info in USA 6EZ - Chassis designation 2W - 2002 chassis year, Wolfsburg Built 123456 - Chassis number sequence
  2. Rough Running TDi

    If it is a misfire, I'd suggest the wiring to the injectors, they do break down over time. Means you have to take the rocker cover off to check though.
  3. Lupo Gti from Germany

    Hello and welcome to the club! Lovely GTI, great number plate too!
  4. arosa mid (or hi) fi

    Wow what an awesome job! And a far better use of the door than those pretty pointless door nets!
  5. Lupo Gti - Janspeed or Custom exhaust?

    Yeah I think mine looks like that, but I have the smaller tailpipe version which looks more OEM.

    Damn, this worth a drive to Italy for you to do mine! Love it!
  7. Anyone picked up this months evo magazine?

    Its not a perfect guide but most points have been covered very well. My story in the back is 100% accurate either but its close enough it doesn't matter. Plus I like being called a 'Lupo Expert' in a major magazine! Oh and all the prices for parts and labour are from where I work too, so a bit of recognition for them too is always welcome....

    I have 2 copies as its my GTI in the 'I bought one' bit!
  9. OY02 JZK Black Lupo GTi Crawley, West Sussex.

    I last saw a black GTI driving into Crawley about 2 or 3 years ago on the road that leads to the Police station. When I caught up with it, she turned off!
  10. Hi all :)

    Hello and welcome to the club!
  11. OY02 JZK Black Lupo GTi Crawley, West Sussex.

    Either way, its ****ed now as its been to Kwik Bodge! Think I've seen that around Crawley a few years back, was a lovely-looking young lady at the wheel if I recall correctly....
  12. HO HEY :)

    If I was a betting man, my money would be on the thermostat and housing
  13. Lupo door locks falling out

    And as the famous Haynes manual says, fitting is the opposite of removing.
  14. lost key

    Any manufacturer will require to see your V5 & photo id, its the law to prove you are the owner of the car. It stops anyone from ordering a key to a car they fancy taking off the street. Its also law to see the registered owner of the car for the same reason. We also take payment for the key before ordering as it initially costs us to order the parts for you, and seeing as your key is no good to anyone else, why should we foot the bill? We don't fax or email the details to VW, we order it through our parts ordering system. If your vehicle has had a lock change, that does make life difficult. We wouldn't know its had it done, but now the newer systems are in place, the new key number is now recorded and updated on VW's records in Germany, so any future orders should result in a key that fits. Doesn't always happen though! But if its had a lock change in the past that does mess stuff up! I don't understand your frustration at how its done. Its a process thats been in place the entire time I have worked for VW (14 years now) and nobody has ever moaned about it to me, its just the way it works. Having never ordered a key for a car I personally own, or for any other manufacturer (i've owned a VW of one kind or another since a 1996 Polo 6N), but I'd imagine the timescale will be the same. I can check for Honda and Mazda if you want me too (as the group I work for own garages for both brands), just in case VW are still in the stone age, but I'm pretty sure it will be the same as VW.
  15. lost key

    I meant the information about every key VW has ever made being kept in a dealership. Surely that's just asking for trouble! Keep it all in Germany at VW's HQ. I'm happy some oik doesn't have my car key number so he can make a copy and steal my car. We don't send key numbers to the factory, we order keys through our ordering system (Parts 500 or Parts Dealer Frontend System) with the part number, chassis number of the car and an order number, and VW send the key, pre-cut, to us in our parts delivery, usually in around 3-5 days. Sometimes it takes longer. Current VW's don't seem to have key numbers anymore, we used to see a key number on the inside of the flap of the jiffy bag when we opened them, but that doesn't happen anymore. We can't even get key numbers anymore, as we used to be able to send for those too, but not anymore! Its all about security!
