  1. Good info πŸ‘πŸ» @ObjectiveAwayDo you have the details for other Lupo gearboxes- and the cross references - which other cars use the same types?

  2. ETD is the same, the one from Polo 6N2 1.4 MPI is exactly what you need. Do not brake with gears at all for now, it will destroy your gearbox in no time.

  3. Yes. You may need to change the gear shift linkage, speedo pickup and clutch connection.

  4. Rather than fix the brakes I decided I wanted an open air roof, went an got one with a 6n front dam as it suits the mk1s better than the lupo air dam does. Found it was a really good idea to draw the lines and start cutting while still mildly inebriated from the night before, actually turned out better than the roof in the golf and is pretty much bang onπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Drove it to Caffeine and Machine to meet up with some of the lupo owners on Facebook, only to drive home and hit a brick in the middle of the road. Smashed it to bits on the subframe and watched all the bits fly into the car tailgating me behind. Couple minutes later the car stank of fuel. Turns out the impact had actually broken the top of the fuel pump assembly where the high pressure line connects so was just leaking fuel, found it like a week after it happened as I couldn't find fuel dripping anywhere, so I decided to take apart the car to find it. Anyway got that fixed, put a new unit in so hopefully won't have that problem again. πŸ˜…

  5. I did my cyber security dissertation on this sort of thing.. Looking into security of short range RF devices using RTL-SDR and yardstick one. Yes VW are protected from replay attacks by rolling codes but are still vulnerable to rolljam attacks which consists of blocking and capturing the first unlock code and then the second then replaying the first code leaving an unused unlock code to the vehicle, which an attacker can then resend later on. VWs and a lot of other manufacturers are vulnerable to this. I believe the hackrf device can do this, although this is some effort and hit/miss as your blocking the the frequency the remote key fob transmits on but also trying to record at the same time... Obvs also vulnerable to brute force attacks but that can take time. Quicker if you can see patterns of codes to reduce your key set. Ie if the beginning of a code or end of a code is the same you know you only need to guess the middle.. iirc the ecu/CCM stores a number of keys allowed to unlock the vehicle incase the keys are pressed numerous times outisde range of the vehicle. You would then need 2 or so consecitive codes to resync them with the ecu/CCM. So this also increases your chances as you have more acceptable codes to unlock the vehicle. What is more scary is that VW of the same era codes have been cracked so you can capture one code and create more for later use. Check this paper out. Lock It and Still Lose Itβ€”On the (In)Security of Automotive Remote Keyless Entry Systems Fortunately he hasn't released the cryptographics of it but be aware they are bust and vulnerable. What I did find funny a few years back I had a lupo without remote control locking. It was actually more secure fitting a 3rd party system like rclick than retrofitting the genuine system. Also worth noting is that many old garage doors/shutters etc are vulnerable to replay attacks.. Thinking of more physical security yet?

  6. Ok. I thought i'd create this very handy table of all the known colour concepts (colour etc). This list will be updated in due course if new information is found out about any car etc.

  7. Thank you for the advice 😊 it doesn't appear as stiff anymore. It may have just need driving 😊 Hopefully will be able to get some pictures uploaded soon

  8. Thank you so much. It's so appreciated. I'd love to keep this car going forever. As on now it had a stiff 2nd gear but will be able to look more into it when I pick the car up Saturday. It will also probably have a wheel change, just because I'm still learning and want to keep the current wheels looking as good as possible

  9. That's really interesting. I'd never heard of colour concept Lupos and neither had my dad until we found this one. I'd always loved the look of lupo's. It's such ashame about the yellow on that was scrapped.

  10. Hi, I am the new owner of the above lupo X757 HKY It's my first car and I had no idea how rare it was. It will be very well looked after and cared for

  11. Sure. Replace it with any 085 box. http://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/technical_data/gearbox_identification/code_letters_gearbox_allocation_ratios_capacities/ http://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/power_transmission/5-speed_manual_gearbox_085/technical_data/gearbox_identification/code_letters_gearbox_allocation_ratios_capacities_2/ Find one you like the look of!
