Meet Bernard The 'Bagged' Shed - CL "Car to watch 2015" *MASSIVE CATCH UP ON ITS WAY*

Recommended Posts

Okay so tonight I put my deposit down on this sweet little green 1.4 Lupo Sport, 84k on the clock, a few scratches but rad for a first car.

For a first car, yes being 20 and only just getting his first car, laugh it up!

I have a good few plans for her, first being cleaned and cleaned again, then slammed....as you do....

Already have done a mock up of what i want the dash to look like....

hope to chat soon! Alex

I've just purchased the sigma version! Used the canon a few times for some premier league football stuff and seriously rate it! I mostly stick to cars/sports also!

Get cracking with the lupo!

I have a little plan for these beauties, first to get one new tire and maybe paint them full black but the wheel trims that i have coming, i never seen them on a lupo actually a VW before.... :surprised::thumbsup:

I'm picking her up 3 days early and getting her tonight so expect a lot on here!!

Got my 1st car at 20 too :thumbsup: I really don't see how people below 20 pay for insurance..

Catch 22, Need a job to pay for the car... Need a car to get a job!

Dash will look amazing when you have it done! :cheeky:

Cool first car. I had a 1.4 16v courtesy car the other day whilst my GTI was in for service. It was good fun, probably because it was only mildly lowered and had great tyres on that weren't stretched lol, little go kart.

Good progress , but a wise word: declare your mods or don't let other people know they aren't declared, effectively voids your insurance blahblahblah
