I could try and find out how many of them there are lol.

Not a problem, it was one of the things that made me want a GTI.

There are 23000 MK2 VTR's and 625 GTI's.

I'm sorry but I still can't believe the attrition rate is so high. The Lupo GTi was launched in March '01 (?), so in less than seven years approximately 370 have been written off!! That's over 50 a year. However, the DVLA is a government body and we all know that this government cannot be trusted with statistics. All the same, I'm glad I've decided to spend £120 plus VAT to get Era mortice locks fitted to my garage door (failing that I'll just recline the front seat and start sleeping in it).

I can only give you the info that we have on our system, it may be the case that the figure of 925 was wrong.

OK, I believe you. The figure of 995 came from VW and we all know how efficient the Germans are. It just doesn't stack up somehow. Edited by Fow Vay

some may have been used for competion in which case they would no longer be registered. cuo cars are road registerd though i think.

mine cost me £6500 last June and I am realising what a bargain it was. Even though the belts needed doing. Never came across any Cat.d ones though. Not surprised some people may have stacked them, the back end comes round if you drop of the gas round a tight bend; not as bad as a vts or 205 gti, but can catch out the unwary.

Of course if you are expecting it then it can be good fun (well i've got to wear out the rears somehow!) :wacko:

TBH i thought Red was going to be more popular as there used to be quite a few on this forum, i guess they have all moved on.

Most of the red one's will be written off because they're the fastest.
