    Yeah, all looks normal. Check the voltage in that supply plug on the egr controller. Not sure what it needs to be in there, but i think from memory, it's 0 and 12v when running idle.

    your insurance will check your engine. If you have lied to them by not declaring an engine conversion (because they WILL ask if the car has any modifications) You will have void insurance, and depending on the circumstances, you could end up in prison. dont be a dick. declare it. I wouldn't necessarily do a logbook declaration, but if you fail to declare and even if someone totals your car whilst parked up, they will still void your policy. If you cant afford the insurance dont do the swap.

    Definitely not ignition on, before removing the plug from the ECU remove the minus terminal from the battery . Basically you measure the continuity of some wires not the functioning of a component

    BBS RX2's are nice wheels, I used to run them on a Mk3 - but you need to be aware that they are one of the worst OEM wheels for space inside for brakes. On my Mk3 the caliper was only a few mm of the inside of the spokes. I can also report that the RX2's are heavy, a nightmare to clean and it seems their second function in life is to corrode. If you do go with the R32 calipers, ignoring wheel space, you will need to make custom carriers for the calipers to fit on. I would stick with the common upgrade retaining the existing calipers and using them with 280 discs and carriers.

    Even 312 won't fit with 16" Rx unless you grind the calipers MK3 288 brakes with calibra discs in four stud.

    Welcome to club lupo! I'd keep it 100% standard. Easier to maintain and worth more when you sell it again. There aren't that many about now...

    Well according to his lord mayorshipness, anyone in london can afford to scrap their old motor and buy a brand new fully compliant one so they don't need to pay ULEZ charges. Mad. Completely barking mad. So many examples of this but i like this one. A domestic Or office cleaner who just about makes ends meet, carries her mop and bucket in her old banger so she can get around london and clean houses... so take public transport says mr mayor. With all the gear? Yeah right. This really winds me up. I have an SDI which chucks out lower levels of pollutant than a brand new E6 car. Official. Tested at the last MOT, but I'm not allowed to use it in London soon. In the centre already banned. Not happy. so to summarise my rant. Move, use public transport or buy a new car. I'm shaking my head here. You're basically snookered. No lupo above E4.
