  3. With regret we are selling our Unique Volkswagen Lupo. The car is extremely adjusted to make it a ‘one of a kind’ car. The car is for 99% car season ready. It has only been to one car show in 2014 in the Netherlands. The uniquest modifications: The car has had an engine swap. The mechanic completely adjusted the enginebay to fit the 20v turbo engine from a Audi TT (180 HP version). The engine management system has been modified and the result is a horsepower increase of 50 HP, the engine is around 230 HP (estimated). The car has a six speed gear box. All the adjustments are custom made to make sure that the car is not only extremely fast but also safe. The exterior has been cleaned including the indicator lights which are incorporated within the head lights, the handles, gutters, third break light, locks. Even the valve which is now behind the right tail light is cleaned. The wheelarch is rolled maximally so that the 9j Brock B5 rims neatly fit. The car has been spraypainted again in a unique brown colour with gold metallic flakes. All windows behind the B-trim are replaced with new specially tinted windows which are light grey. The inside of the vehicly is also modified. There are two Cobra Misano seats (1200 euros per seat) upholstered with Nappa leather and painted back. In order to fit nicely in your seat the seats include racing buckles (three pointed) that are mounted to a polished cage (no function). Black Isotta steering wheel. What makes the car even more unique is that every orifice and bolt hole behind the seats is cleaned. We have never seen this in a car before. Because everything is cleaned the audio system of Gladen Audio stands out. The sound is crystal clear and the whole system is upholstered in black Skai leather.

  5. quick couple of questions

    ive got a few questions here and i think someone here could answer them so here goe's is it possible to drop a 1.8/2,0 turbo engine in the arosa from say a seat leon or VW passat or something any idea's on getting rid of the sticky resin thats been left behind by the door trims? im thinking of using the stuff they use too take off adverts from vans and bus's but not sure if there's something better than that? weird whinning noise coming from my engine bay,i fear that its on its last legs as it has done 117,000+ not sure if it's some bearing or something but the faster i go,the louder it gets doe's anyone know where i can get my steelie's banded? (glasgow area)
  6. Arosa Write Up Seat Arosa 1.4 TDI S 2001 I have for sale my beloved mk2 1.4 Tdi, I used this car to commute to work but have changed jobs and can walk to work. It will easily return 60mpg+. As a car enthusiast I love to enhance cars and have spent a lot of time and money to make this car fast, economical and yet look as standard as possible. All parts have been replaced with either original or OEM and I have all the documentation. Mature driver and always driven with mechanical sympathy. Dblock is my brother so you know the car has been treated well. It has all the usual mods. 100bhp remap which makes it faster and more economical. The 0.622 5th gear mod which does 70mph at 2krpm. This means super quiet and efficient cruising. The mod cost £300. All the normal wear and tear items have been done like the stat, temp sensor and suspension work and a clutch. So the car is good to go. Engine is sweet and is serviced every 6000 miles (half the interval) using the proper PD 505.01 spec oil. Gear box oil is also proper VAG stuff. Coolant is G12++. The car has been treated very very well. I bet you can’t find a car on sale that has been treated as well as this one. We have 2 Arosa Tdi’s in the house so we know these cars well.

  7. Go to last page for most recent updates. Currently running 423bhp. How she stands at the moment. Hello, Before I start I just want to say a quick something to all those people who go on about people who pay for these kinda things and don't get a finger dirty! Its not that I don't want to do my own conversion, I'd love to do it myself but I don't have the skills required or the time that would be needed. Things that I can do myself like brakes, suspension and other bits and bobs I have but this is just too far past me, Lol! But hey if you wanna have a pop at me feel free lol! My car is a 1.4sport on a 1999 plate. I've already uprated the brakes to 280mm G60's on the front and it has black diamond drilled and grooved discs all the way round with black diamond pads as well! Its lowered on FK highsport silerline coilovers and is currently runnin on G60 steelies. The car is being done by PSI Tuning in Stoke on Trent who've had the car for about 3-4 weeks now. They've not long finished off the custom mounts and have the engine sitting where its going to be going. The engine is a 225bhp lump with a five speed box on it. Here are the pictures during.... Thanks for looking, I'll keep you updated on the progress. Sam.
  8. I acquired these wheels over the space of a few years, intending to build the ultimate set for my two mk1 Golf project cars. Unfortunately the Golf's are long gone, and I'm clearing out my wheel collection to put the money towards going travelling/funding a new car. Therefore, I am offering 6 complete sets of Compomotive Turbo split rims. These are my all time favourite wheels and you could certainly say I'm obsessed!

There are a range of PCD's, but I believe there are two sets 4x100, two 4x95.25, one 4x101, and one 4x98. There are a few spare centres also. The dishes and barrels are all in pairs or sets of four, and again, there is a good range of sizes so you can build the perfect set for your car and sell the rest on if you wish. These are all in very good condition with minimal curbing (apart from the obviously damaged ones; there are spares to replace these), but do require polishing. I know this is an awful advert with awful pictures, but I will update it is soon as I can. Here are some terrible pictures to give you an idea: I have refurbished one set, and had the dishes back from the polisher: Here's some inspiration for you!: These wheels rarely come up for sale, and I've spent an absolute fortune on them (even to the point of buying complete cars to get hold of the wheels!). I've come to the point where I just really want to get rid of them, and the easiest and most convenient way is just to sell them as one lot. I have previously had interest from people building track cars because the spares are ideal for them so I may have to go down that route, but thought it was worth putting them up here just in case. I am looking for £4200 for the lot. If people are interested I will split but they will be £900+ a set as they are. I'd be looking for £1050 a set fully refurbished (I don't really have the time to do this currently, but please enquire if interested). Although the PCD's aren't all perfect for VAG applications, these wheels are extremely sought after for classic mini's, Fords and other marques. I have full access to a machine shop (currently studying a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering), and will be machining two sets to either 4x100 or 4x108. If you have any other requests for machining, let me know and I'll do my best, but I'm limited on free time! 
The wheels are located in Winchester, Hampshire. This is my fathers house, but I am just outside Bath if that's easier for collection.

  9. VW Lupo 1.2 TDI - Problems

    Hi, everybody! I'm quite the new beginner when it comes to what's going on under the hood of a car, so it's been quite hard finding topics referring to my problem, since I don't know what the parts do or are called. Although, worth mentioning is that I don't mind getting my hands dirty and I prefer hands on learning. So here's my story: I've owned my Lupo for almost two years now and I've had a few problems during this time. Nothing big though and it's always run smoothly. The car has gone 210 000 km, which is about 130 000 miles, so it's probably on the bad side of the human 50's, I guess, considering physical condition, of course. About two months ago I lost my acceleration, basically. At first I thought that the car was a bit slow but then I reached "Åby-backen", which is a steep slope on the freeway, outside my hometown "Norrköping" and found that going uphill I could reach a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). I got passed by lorries and in order not to piss people off I had to stay at that speed for the rest of the ride. So, this is the state that my Lupo is in atm. I cracked up the hood and found some leads as to what was causing the turbo, I suppose, not to work. I'll show you what I'm talking about in some pictures but here's also a short text description. A major oil spillage revealed that a quite thick pipe had sprung loose. So I cleaned the engine quickly, jammed the pipe back in jumped in the car and drove off. Now everything was smooth sailing once again. But I was quite suspicious and rightfully so. I thought to myself that it shouldn't be that easy. Of course I wanted to try the acceleration off for real and here's where it happened. The pipe sprung loose once again and I could hear how the engine started to, I dunno how to put it but, roar in an unsatisfying way and I lost my acceleration once again. Now I thought that the problem was that the pipe was old and worn out so I made a Donald Duck kind of repair and used a pair of straps to fasten the pipe again. This worked for a few days but somehow it doesn't any longer. It's quite tight but still the pipe is pushed out. I'm thinking that it might have something to do with pressure rather than a screwed up pipe. Sorry for the long post. I hope you can look past that and help me in finding a solution to my problem. Thank you! Pictures> If you need to see more pictures just say and I'll post what you need.

  19. Hi All, Long time no see on here, but i had to come on to warn people - Sorry about where ive placed this post, i wanted to ensure maximum exposure due to the umbiquitous nature of the engines! Long story short, i have a MY52 Ibiza Mk4 TDi Sport. The Brakes failed suddenly on thursday losing all servo assistance. Needless to say i almost crashed despite selecting 1st gear and a HEAVY tug on the handbrake. These cars barely brake at all without the servo - the Aux pump virtually useless at 25mph+. I popped up the bonnet and found the brake servo hose has split and torn loose. Its a totally crap design - hard plastic pipe moulded onto a plastic 1-way check valve. This pipe for those less technically informed is found on the back of a 1.9PD engine when looking from the front - running paralell to the firewall from the engine to the brake servo (big circular 'ufo' shaped thing above your brake pedals). Just follow the pipe from there and feel around the connectors all the way back to the engine. To make matters worse, i also have a Lupo 1.4 TDi and my friend has a Mk4 Ibiza 1.4TDi - BOTH OF THESE HAD A SPLIT SERVO HOSE TOO!! Literally both were ready to break off. The lupo had admittedly quite hard brakes and now i know why. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check yours and SPREAD THE WORD. Im in the process to writing to VOSA/Watchdog. These pipes are probably 80% overlooked at MOT's (MOT Testers arent allowed to even remove the engine cover to look). A split hose will also cause extra turbo lag and stop the anti-shudder valve/egr from working properly. Therefore if you get any underboost or EGR error codes, it could be this!! Be safe everyone Ed
  20. Selling my genuine Pipercross Viper carbon fibre cold air feed and induction kit. I am only selling due to returning car to standard specification. This cost £250 new, and is similar to the BMC CDA intakes but higher quality, and real carbon fibre. It was fitted to a 1.4 sport, and sounded lovely! Here is a link to the site: http://www.lkperformance.co.uk/induction-kits/pipercross/pipercross-viper-induction-kit/368415?carId=176840 And description: "Viper air intake unit The technology used in the Pipercross Viper was first seen on the famous Lotus 340R, but soon became available for an ever increasing range of popular road cars. Using 'velocity air force', each Viper air intake directs cold air directly into the engine. The cold air feed takes air from an area of cold, dense air straight into the Viper's inlet, swirling it through a unique Pipercross reverse-flow air filter contained within a carbon fibre heat shield, then into a ram pipe to increase the air pressure before feeding it into the induction system. The carbon fibre heat shield protects the air charge from under bonnet heat keeping it cool -and therefore more dense -thus introducing more oxygen into the combustion mixture,giving increased power. The reverse flow technology filter and 150mm ram pipe make use of the physical phenomenon of air tending to move towards surface area's, creating more air flow on the edge rather than in the centre of the inlet. The unique design of the filter cone and the inlet 'tune' the moving air flow to increase its speed and therefore its pressure maximising the laminar air flow into the engine, again resulting in increased power. Sealed unit cold air intake Genuine carbon fibre heatshield Reverse flow foam filter element Noticeable improvement in mid range performance Highly polished alloy components combined with deep weave carbon fibre for great under bonnet looks" I am asking £120 Location: Corsham, near Bath Contact: Please feel free to PM or call/text 07837 892836
