  1. My silver Bora disappears over the hill to Leeds with my lad at the wheel, that means I've inherited his 1.0 litre Lupo :-) In the last 18 months, it's had a full service, new battery, new alternator, new exhaust and a new clutch. For a little motor, get the revs up around town and it can tater along. I had a 73 beetle some years ago and this Lupo makes me smile in the same way. Anyways, sat in the garage is an old Mini with some nice 165/55/R13 alloys that fit. Similar to the ones in the picture, which is owned by someone on the forum. Problem is, I need some arches to cover the gap and I don't really want to start drilling and ruining a good motor. Any suggestions? I've seen the thread with the two Aussie guys BTW. Many Thanks
  2. VW NEWBIE!

    Hello everyone, I've just bought myself my first VW, it's a fox! Auntie went blind so got it from her and it's only for 22,000 miles! Already got some heko wind reflectors ordered, trying to find some alloys but unsure of what size to get! Going to black off my rear and front badges, but not sure what else to do! Any one who has got parts or any help let me know it will be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys, Mark.

  6. New member - new lupo

    Bought black 1.4 sport lupo 2 weeks ago nice car with a few problems, hopefully fixable, Electric sunroof fills the car with water i have adjusted the closing position but it didnt help too much. Plus the clutch pedal / take up strange a lot of spare play at the top ( adjustment rather than pedal box hopefully ) - looking forward to club meets !

  10. Hi fellow lupo lovers, my name is Holly and i'm the new proud owner of a fantasia green loop in Dorset!! Bought it in june and thought i'd come on here and introduce myself as passed my driving test yesterday!! yaaaay. FREEDOM. My little green machine is in good condition for its age (1999) and roars away through the streets. Only thing i wonder about it though, that i thought you guys could ease my mind about is: - the gas pedel kinda flutters under my foot. i feel it sort of tapping against my shoe. - the clutch is sooooooooooooooo stiff, it takes some serious leg muscle action to push it down. My parents who have been driving big heavy //landrovers// think its fine but, for a little car is this a normal trait in lupo's, stiff clutches??????? So there we go, a brand new lupo buyer, ready for a whole load of fun (hopefully)! Holly
