  1. Some pics of first South/Central get together, only 3 this time although we checked out other car parks in case 🙂 Personally, celebrated the first meet by hitting a milestone within yards of car park ............ Nice to meet you guys @mk2& @bernd and chat about Lupo's 😍

  2. Into the 3rd year of ownership,definitely Mede the right choice with this car.Tooked away now for most of the winter.

  3. Unless you are very sure about the car's condition, I would avoid. Remember the seller is selling for a reason. Component costs of new hydraulic unit and gearbox actuator are now north of £2k each. Otherwise buy but be proactive with maintenance as otherwise it will become very expensive! You will need VCDS and a copy of Elsawin for maintenance. RAB

  4. Recently done a trackday at Donnington, my first time there and what a track it is, not 100% suited to the Lupo but Craner Curves is so much fun! Completed 64 laps in the day, the car was faultless and surprised so many people. I’ve just finished a well over due paint correction on the car too, it’s been around 2.5-3 years since I’ve touched the car with a polisher. I used Sonax perfect finish and a Yellow Rupes pad. I decided to put a ceramic coating on the car, Carbon Collective Oracle, the slickness and gloss it has left behind is incredible and should be good for 2-3 years. I’ll leave some differences down below

  6. Hello there. I’ve recently, yesterday, purchased a Lupo Gti. I sold my last one in 2007. My first few cars in the 90’s were mk1 and Mk2 golf gti’s . 8v, g60 and vr6. Never owned a valver but I raced a few. Anyhow that was then, this is now . The lupo is too loud and too low but I can’t help but like it. My other car is a Mwb Sprinter.

  7. Thanks Man. The previous owner has put a lot of graft into the car so it’s pretty well sorted. I do have another 6 speed box with a Quaife LSD in it which I’ll fit at some point . Would like a set of standard wheels with some rainsports or something on for the winter and possibly a Recaro pole position seat .

  8. Sorry, i've been off the forum for a while. It's been on the news non-stop since day one. Apparently they're still expecting more lava to come out as it's still quite active. More than 2000 buildings have been reported destroyed... We'll see when it stops and what can be done about it, it's a real shame for those people.

  9. Yes! You can't do that on the road. If the clutch reading changes over a few hours, it's the clutch guide sleeve as well. RAB

  10. Clutch actuators are consumable items; don't buy a used one! Might be an idea to do a FULL basic setting, rather than missing out an important part, i.e. ADJUST. RAB

  11. There's no such thing as a good second-hand clutch guide sleeve. Part no. 7 here: https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/lupo++lupo+3l+tdi/lu/2001-231/1/141-141010/ RAB

  12. It has been done but not to RHD. There's no RHD steering rack for a 3L. Why bother? There are as many pros and cons to either LHD or RHD with the exception of overtaking but if moving your head a few feet makes that much difference, it's probably not safe to anyway! It's lack of maintenance that makes running a standard 3L expensive. You have to be proactive! RAB

  15. Most likely the potentiometer of the clutch actuator is beginning to fail. Either buy a new actuator or send the electrical part to Mankmil. See here; https://a2-freun.de/forum/forums/topic/45241-a2-12tdi-gear-selector-not-pushing-down-to-3rd-4th-and-5th-gears/ He will replace the potentiometer with a Hall sensor which is a non-wearing part. English is fine. The second option is the cheapest one and will give a longer life. RAB

  16. There is no English VW Lupo 3L manual as it was not sold in the UK. There might be an Italian one but you might have problems finding one. A copy of Elsawin might be more useful. RAB

  22. Yes. Undo four nuts on the manifold (heat required!) and the clamp after the cat - you can see it just behind the cat in the picture. I suspended the exhaust by tying it up so I didn't have to undo any sensors. I used a Map Gas blow torch to make it easier. The car is now with its new owner, ready to be another learners first car. That's 3 learners from the same class in school who have owned the car (and the reason I decided to save it!).

  28. Ok, I've figured out whats happening. Matty must be running more than just this forum on the server. And my guess is he accidentally left the same SSL opener script in the club lupo forum as the AMG forum. Easy mistake to make... So it redirects exactly as required. But in our case, the wrong one! I don't think it'd affect anything/anyone though unless they specifically go into the host via the main domain lookup (unlikely). I think most people get here via a search (google etc) link and then simply click, then jump straight in.

  29. Selling my beloved Lupo GTI including the private Lupo reg. It's a 2005 reg. 151K miles I have owned since 2013 and most of those miles are me on the motorway, full year of MOT, taxed until December. Digital radio installed. GTI door plates, and mats. Red calipers and seat belts. In Stockport, Greater Manchester. Still a great drive! Photos attached. Selling for £4500. If you are interested please contact Natalie on 07857434329.
