    So I’ve been a member on here for a few months now, never really posted much. I bought the Lupo for £450, had a few mechanical problems, I broke the gearbox when I first started driving so had my dad sort that. I wasn’t really going to do much to the car as I didn’t really think I’d keep if for a long time. Slowly started adding stickers to the back and thought that’s all that I’d do as I didn’t think it was worth spending much on a £450 car. Here he is today, haven’t finished with him at all. I bought a few things and before I knew it he’s completely different to how he was when I first bought him. Haven’t really got many photos of the “in-between” stages. But he was a standard Lupo 1.4s. Nothing more, now he’s a little more exciting. So here he is just after I bought him. As standard as you can get. This is about half a year later, as you can see, quite a bit has changed. (Lowered, modded lights/ indicators , Tarantula alloys, wind deflectors, a load of other stuff I can’t think of.) Rear end, partially smoked and yellow tinted lights, wiper blank, stickers. Pressed plates. Splitter. Still a load to be done, spacers are on their way for the rears, fronts will then be done eventually, got some plans for the steering wheel to be changed and hopefully straight through exhaust at some point, body work needs some attention and the wheels need a good refurb. oh and here’s the gearstick and gator. Cherry/Pro Bomb fitted. Mainly bought for the fact it’ll annoy the people that live nearby. 25mm Rear Spacers fitted also. Still need to get passenger side rear wheel painted gold, along with returning the others.
  2. I just bought some "BBS" alloys and the centre bore won't sit on the hub at all. Is there a way around his? Can I resize the alloys or even put a spacer in place?

    Starlite alloys wanted - cash waiting

    We have decided to keep the Lupo (we had thought of trading it for an Up!) so I am back to wanting to smarten it up a bit. I always fancied the "starlite" alloys and so I want to buy yours! Thanks!

    Will they fit?

    Will 15'' ET45 57.1mm 6J alloys fit a 1L lupo/arosa? And what tyre size would be the best? The car isn't lowered. Cheers!

    Hi everyone, Had my lupo for a couple months now and i'm looking to get some alloys and lower it but need some advice. I would prefer 15" wheels but don't know the widest I can get away with and offset. Also what width tyres would I need and what profile? I'm looking at getting some banded steels for it. Also undecided on weather to go for springs or coilovers to lower it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Anyone have any pics of their Lupos on 15" alloys with standard/ un lowered suspension? Cheers!

    Wheel Spacers

    Was thinking of getting 5-10mm wheel spacers but my dads told me that it's not a good idea and it may lead to some problems. What are the Pros and Cons? Are there any troubles that may come about with wheel spacers? Cheers Chris

    Wheel fitments

    Alloys for my lupo?

    I've just recently bought my first vw lupo it's a 2000 make. I'm new to everything cars & mods but I'm keen to get my ride looking fresh! I'm starting with alloys. My lupo is black so I'm considering either gold or black (with a hint of black) does anyone have any suggestions or links? Any other modification suggestions would be great to.

    Tire Advice

    Hi everyone. Need a little advice with tires, I'm working on buying my first set of alloys but i'm not sure what size alloys and tires would be best. I don't want to have to roll my arches but i intend on going a bit low, i was thinking something like 15x7/7.5 with 195/45/15 tires, but i want a small amount of stretch. can anyone recommend a good combination? thanks very much all.

    Whats up everyone, I've decided on the wheels that I want, I'm going for a set of silver Axe EX8's 15" x 8". My problem though is tyre's. I don't know the first thing about stretching so i wanted to know what size tyre would go well with a nice amount of stretch, I'm thinking 195/45/15. Has anyone got any pics of something simlar? Like 1j thinner than the wheels? Any help is appreciated! Thanks everyone!
