Black Lupo GTI - VW51 LPO? - Kempsey, Worcester

Recommended Posts

Spotted it parked on a drive on my drive home from work, it's never been there before! Looked lowered but could be due to gravel driveway... COOL

Haha, I didn't see the owner! Just rarely see a gti round my way especially through the sleepy village to work!

Hi All

it is my car, but actually the reg is VW 54 LPO.

It hasn't been lowered but back wheels are spaced a little. it lives in Brighton , though does still go to Kempsey occasionally though trying not to over use it on long runs - still less than 50k on clock

glad it's been admired - I love it!

We have driven past each other once at the bottom of the upper drive - if I'm ever going anywhere where I can go past you in Matlock I do, did wonder if you were on the forum!

Yep that me on Matlock Road, and yes do remember passing by!  There are also a couple of silver ones I see in Brighton.  Not long on the forum, will post pictures of the car in new year once I get the cursed rear spoiler repainted !

There is a real beaten up silver Y reg I've seen a few times, i have learnt that the driver does not engage in the camaraderie others of us do when passing 😂 I do know of a few other GTIs fairly locally but not seen them in Brighton! 

Your car really does put mine to shame, I'd be scared to leave it out on the road...

Thank-you for the compliment. Mine does need a bit of work - but the new year will sort that out. Leaving on the road is a contentious subject. This thread begins with the car being spotted in Kempsey Worcester where my mate lives who is a real VW nut - he keeps telling me I need to just keep it in his garrage next to his type 2 camper van and keep it out of the elements.

I do confess though that I have towels to put over the leather seats in the summer to protect them from UVs !
