Hi all, Im looking at getting the Powerflex Black line bushes as im doing a few track days later this year (and my bushes are all looking tired and have some play developing in most of them). I'm aiming to enter the old girl into the MSVR track day trophy or MSVR all comers (depends on what the car sits better in terms of regs and what circuits each club go to etc). Just wanted to to hear about where you guys bought yours, the prices you paid for them & if you encountered any issues when replacing your old ones! Thanks in advance, Matt
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.
Hey guys, I have a 2003 Lupo Gti and am looking to upgrade the suspension bushes to Powerflex ones. http://www.powerflexshop.com/car/volkswagen/lupo-1999-2006/powerflex-bushes-for-road-use-volkswagen-lupo-1999-2006?options=cart From here I am unsure what sizes to order for the Front Anti-roll bar bushes 18mm, 20mm or 22mm? and Front Anti-roll bar eye bushes 18mm or 20mm? Thank you!
Hi all, Interested in your advice. The bushes in the front lower wishbone arms are on their way out and I was wondering what I should do, that is: Buy new OEM wishbones that already have the bushes included ?....or....Keep my wishbones and have just the bushes replaced with Powerflex bushes ?Thanks for any advice.
