  1. New Here - Lupo GTi Chester

    Long time lurker - Think I've tried joining a few times through email in the past but it didn't work - just tried through Facebook and straight in! Based in Chester and have owned a silver GTi for about two years. Replica schmidt rims and dropped - quite a distinctive look.

  5. Grill Trim!

    Just fitted the new red trim to my little Lupo grill! I'm loving the results wasn't hard to do just a little fiddly when making sure it was all on correctly!
  6. New Member!

    Evening! New here but I've been using the site for about 2 years working on my Lupo 1.4E and my new Lupo 1.6 GTI. Thanks for the Add can't wait to see everyone's Lupo!
  7. Hello all, My GTI will no longer start and it's a bit of a mystery. It turns over fine but will not start. We got it running once, but it was very lumpy and I had to keep my foot on the throttle to keep it running. I've had the throttle position sensor off and cleaned it but it didn't make a difference. It won't jump or bump start. It's been plugged into vagcom and flags no fault codes. The only unusual thing on vagcom is that the live screen didn't register any RPM when it was turning over, so I've ordered a cam sensor to try that. Just wondered if anyone else had any ideas? Google has found similar cases but nothing quite the same. Oh just to add, it's had a new battery and had the alternator tested, and also a compression test, all fine.
  8. Hi all, As the title says, I'm trying to source some new headlight washer ends and caps. Anyone know where to buy them? I've scourged the interwebs and have had no luck. I'm after parts 1 & 2 as mine have been knackered for a long time. If unable to get new ones, I'll attempt to repair mine but would rather avoid this. I've attmepted German eBay however I feel there is some translations issues with Google. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  10. Up! GTI

    Just heard through the VW grapevine that the Up! GTI opens for UK ordering 2nd November and the first ones will be in showrooms by 27th December! Its finally happening! No idea on prices at the moment though.
  11. Hello all. Let's start from the very beginning. So I bought my Lupo GTI just under 3 years ago now - 28th June 2014 to be precise. I originally bought the car with every intention of making it a road going show car, after attending various local/nationwide shows with a select group of friends. The level of attention to detail of some of these cars was second to none and it was really quite inspiring to see first hand for myself. Growing up in the North West of England (Wigan) I was lucky to be exposed to a large variety of different automotive cultures. Be it everything from Japanese, German, VAG to Classic, High Performance and Concourse show cars. I started driving early 2012 and despite much controversy my first car was a 1.2 Vauxhall Corsa D (Unlimited Edition) . However after 2 years of ownership in 2014 I decided it was time for a change. I had recently gained employment at Jaguar Land Rover - Halewood and my insurance started to dip a little. It was then I set out on the hunt for a car to tick a few boxes. I wanted something fun, nimble, fast but at the same time something that wasn't going to break the bank insurance/fuel wise. After weeks of what seemed like endless searching I fell in love with a Black Lupo GTI I had found on AutoTrader. The owner, a 56 year old lady from Rugby, Warwickshire. The car itself was absolutely perfect (Black, 6 Speed, Low mileage 64K, FSH, Completely standard and unmolested). It was everything I was looking for.
  12. Hello everyone, I am looking for over 2 months now to purchase the left xenon headlight, but for some reason is so difficult to find even brand new. If someone have a left xenon headlight for sale please let me know. If sold only in pairs I will be happy to purchase both. I am looking only for very good condition headlights! Thank you in advance. PS: Thank you for all forum members for the valuable info shared on here for other Lupo GTI enthusiasts like myself.
  13. The day has come to sell my Arosa as I've now bought a new car. I've owned the car since November 2014 and covered approx 25k in it since. It also has a huge amount of receipts/past MOT's and the V5C in my name and the original 2 keys (one with locking buttons). Pictures here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seat-Arosa-Sport-100bhp-Big-spec-lots-of-upgrades-/142382581436? Spec is as below; - 1.4 100bhp sport AUB 109k - doesn't burn a drop of oil. - Custom Chrome exhaust cat back - Direnza stainless manifold - AP coilovers - 12 months old in perfect order. - Whiteline rear anti-roll bar - Rota GRA 15x6.5, rare now in 15' as they only make them in Subaru size now, with brand new rota caps (perfect condition refurbed in Jan) - Yokohama S Drives 195/45/15 - bought new when wheels were done - 20mm H&R rear spacers. - Momo 300mm, red stitching with a genuine boss and yellow horn button. - Kode red gear knob - Alpine CDE235bt Bluetooth stereo - Cambridge rear lights - Brembo discs front and back, green stuff pads (front) Brembo (rear) - Heko wind deflectors - Dash vents painted splash effect, they look nice (people always ask about them), but to be honest they're not the best finish. - Really decent rubber car mats Recent parts fitted, most/all will have a receipt... - New ignition leads (bigger and don't fit holder) - New battery - New coil pack - New tyres - S Drives - Brake light switch - Rear Brembo pads - Wishbones, ball joints & track rods - Tracking done at A-line with the printout. Serviced in my ownership every 5k with Castrol / Mobil 1 oil and decent parts - not all stamped but lots of receipts from Motorfators with the reg number for service parts. Last service was one was 2k ago. Bad bits... - Bodywork is tatty at the best. Loads of lacquer peel and about 7 shades of yellow. - Rear arches look like they were rolled by a blind person paint has cracked. also paint has flaked off around the rear number plate. - the lip on the sills on both sides are bent/damaged (used as a jacking point by someone), not really an issue but you can see it. - Windows have a mind of their own but always work, drivers one sometimes needs to be asked twice or need a hand halfway up. Passenger one opens only with passenger switch. - Rear right caliper sticks on slightly sometimes and can hear it, still stops as it should. - At some point, the engine light has been taped over, and it is on (can see it in the dark) because of exhaust lambda readings, but the car drives spot on. I also have lots of parts for lying around for it, that will come with the car if the buyer wants, including original seat 5 spoke alloys. Now I know roughly what this car will break for, but I don't have the time or can be bothered to do it. So grab a bargain on the whole lot. No swaps. CASH ON COLLECTION £750 ono
  14. Hi guys, not been on here for a long time, unfortunately my return is to sell my gti. Am I allowed facebook links? just saves me copying and pasting and having to reupload all the images. @jon_273 would you like your old gti back?
  15. I can only find plastic clutch Slave cylinders for the GTI? Is there any other options from other vehicles to use? Reason I would like to change is I don't like the plastic bleeder valve and i feel plastic is cheaper and not as durable as metal?
  16. Whiteline Rear ARB

    I've just treated the GTI to a White Line Rear ARB, I've read they make a huge difference to the handling so I'm looking forward to getting it! Those with it fitted, what setting did you find best? I know there are three settings, just wondered what owners found the best! Thanks in advance!
  17. First of all hi to all members of this club,i have readen so many topics of this forum,you are doing a great job. My name is John and i am from Greece,unfortunately not so much lupo-lovers there so not much info on our blogs/forums even mechanics. At this point before i ask you my questions i will ask you to forgive me for any language mistakes,i really try to use English correctly. I know from other topics you would suggest go sell your lupo s and buy a lupo gti,but in Greece there are no gti at all.There are 2-3 that are converted to 1.6 but no GTI at all and no 6speed gearboxes.I have readen many topics from this forum propably the most organised all over the world for lupo.Lupo used to be my favourite car as a kid and i bought one 1.4s as my first car. The seller tha was a common "friend" with a cousin of mine lied to us that it was a sport and i bought it...So because i really like this car i would really like to convert to 1.6,not so high insurance etc.I am not thinking at all 1.8/ So i have a lupo 1.4 s 75 bhp cable throttled (AKQ engine code) QUESTIONS 1)As much as i know the engine mounts are the same i will not need changing them right? 2)Gearbox will fit or i need one from polo?i would prefer short shifting not so much high speed 3)i would also like to keep cable throttle because its a bit more "aggressive"(cant think the right word to use) is that possible? 4)as much as i read things that are absolutely neccesary to do the convert are engine(mr. obvious from Greece xD),engine and interior loom,ecu and chip from key? 5)do i need driveshafts? 6)can i use for the start my old exhaust system until i have more money to go for a performance exhaust system? 7)one other question if i can fit the whole dashboard from a polo gti 6n2 because mine has some damage? 8)is something that i need not mentioned? 9)are there are many ecu options from 1.6?i mean are there ecu that can be chipped,remapped and some not? 10)Sorry for so much said and asked i tried to be accurate,really appreciate your work in this place,you are the craziest lupo lovers seen.Have seen some unbelievably nice projects around. thank you for reading and answering
  18. GTI Upgraded Radiator?

    Hi, had a look round but can't seem to find an answer to this... My Lupo gti is going to be more track focused from now on, so I'm wondering if there is a better radiator than the OEM one? Want to make sure the car keeps cool on track. Any help or ideas would be appreciated!
  19. Picking this up at the weekend It's already lowered on AP coilovers, but other than that stock I think. Am planning to add some 16" 7 spoke wheels in the near future.......
  20. '55 laser blue GTI

    She's a totally standard, 2005 GTI in laser blue. Just finished giving her a proper polish and wax with a newly acquired DS polisher.
  21. As we all know the GTI spoiler is a bad design and allows water in which then causes paint blistering... What is the best way to seal it all back up? Light - The OEM gaskets obviously fail and I dont believe they can be bought individually as no part number is on ETKA... I purchased a BMW E36 gasket to see if that would work but isn't the best of fits... What could I replace it with? Clear silicone? Foam Tape? The light does need to be able to come apart down the road again... Spoiler - As standard there is foam tape, Should this just be replaced or is there a better substitute? again silicone of some sort?
  22. Ok so I know you cant bake the GTI headlights to split them due to the sealant unlike the normal ones... So my question is can normal headlight lenses fit the GTi headlights? (just the front clear plastic) If i could manually remove the lense from the GTI by dremel etc would a normal lenses fit? PS... The GTI headlight casing is dead anyways (crash damage, cracked lense, no tabs,)
  23. Hello all, the twin cup holders in my lupo gti seem to droop slightly in the middle and rattle slightly when driving. I'm trying to sort out all of my rattles because they do my head in haha. Has anyone had a similar problem or is it just me? I've tried felt tape on the under side but that didn't help anything. Thanks in advance. Lewis.
  24. Make: Silver Lupo Gti 1.6 (6 Sped Manual Gearbox) MOT: January 2018 Engine: 1.6Gti Location: Peterborough/Cambridgeshire Price: 1600 ovno So I am testing the waters for selling my Lupo Gti (6 Speed) with an honest all I know ad. I originally bought this not knowing much about the Lupo’s (Other than I wanted one) It was to be used as a second car that I could spend a bit of time working on and have some fun with, I paid 1800 for it in (I believe) May last year. I recently inherited a bit of money and have since bought a classic beetle that I tend to spend some money on which is why I am debating selling the Lupo. Below I will list the usual Good and Bad: Bad Points: Needs a new starter motor (makes classic noise sometimes on start) I can have this fixed if I do sell Door straps aren’t great, Could do with replacing as doors do not stay open. Bit of rust where one of the previous owner rolled the arches, this is just on the actual rolled bit so isn’t that bad There was previously a bit of a Gearbox Leak and is a bit stiff going into 2nd Gear – I had my mechanic seal the leak which seems to of sorted this and with some new Gearbox oil 2nd gear is a lot better, I drive the car back and forth to work sometimes and its causes me no drama. There are bits of rust around the car in the usual Lupo places bottom of the doors etc. – nothing major though I reversed off my drive and scraped a little bit of the rear arch on my friends van – its scraped and dented the side a little bit but this is fresh so there is no rust and it’s not really bad. I’ve probably made it sound a lot worse than what it actually is, but one thing I hate Is buying a car and then having horrible surprises so I would rather be honest as I do believe in Karma. Good Points: Just had a new MOT (15/01/2017) Had a full service (15/01/2017) Cambelt and HT Leads replaced 4 Good Tyres A book with LOTS of receipts and history (Even managed to find a couple of the old owners on Facebook who had great things to say about the car) New front brake discs and pads New wiper blades Completely Standard (Expect the wheels have been sprayed black at some point) Interior is all in great condition for the age No excessive smoke or smells from exhaust Pulls in every gear and drives well (really is faster than I expected) I managed to get the rear spoiler brake to work J The car has done 157k this worried me at first and I did initially want to change it but after I had a mechanic look around he advised me that the engine seems fine and he thinks it would be a waste to change now as it runs ok, the engine bay all looks clean and no sign of leakage. I am open to offers but please nothing silly, I understand it’s not in show condition but you have to really see it in person it’s not a dog by any means but just needs a bit of TLC. If I can’t get a decent enough sale I will just keep it and tidy it up myself over time. I have been looking on eBay for a while and I yet to see many sell for less than £3000 especially for a 6 speed. I am currently at work below is the only picture I have on my phone – but I will certainly post some more so you get a better picture. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
