  2. That sounds like the best plan! I got someone to acid dip them, seems I know a lot of handy people πŸ˜ƒ then just spent days cleaning them up and prepping them before spraying.. I need to get the bonnet wrapped or resprayed as the lacquer has peeled top down which is odd haha and she has some annoying scratches but nothing a bit of love won’t solve 🀞🏻 I only seem to have photos of the inside haha or covered in snow foam but so far on the outside changed the rear lights to the lupo ones, sun strip and got a black badge for the front & debadged her 😳

  4. In the last 12 months I've replaced a lot of parts on my GTI and most of them have been relatively easy to source (brakes, suspension, aftermarket mods, etc.) but I am planning to replace the engine/gearbox mounts and knowing which route to take is proving tricky (even after searching on here and FB) so I wondered if you guys and gals had some up to date suggestions of what I can use. Below is my current state of knowledge, if you can suggest different or better alternatives I'd be all ears Engine / Gearbox Mounts There are three: 6E0199555E gearbox mount, AFAIK this isn't available new from anywhere? Is it a hydro mount that can be drained and re-filled with polyurethane? 6N0199262G hydro engine mount, found a 3rd party replacement on Autodoc (Viaco https://www.autodoc.co.uk/vaico/2214630) but could be re-filled with PU (although this will increase NVH but maybe acceptable for a fast-road application?) 6E0199851D engine support, read that using a PU bush instead from Powerflex (PFF85-921) has been done to good affect. Small bush on other end can be replaced with (PFR34-231) FOR LOTUS EXIGE SERIES 1 (I love being told hacks like that!) If there are any write-ups how to replace these it would also be much appreciated 😎

  5. Will a VW Polo 9N Four Spoke Steering Wheel 6Q0419091G fit my 2002 VW Lupo GTi please? If not what steering wheel would fit from another car? Thankyou

  7. I just imported a 3L and have found out its going to cost me to tax it even though its usually tax free (road tax) Apparently as its registered before march 2001 it's now costing me Β£135 per year. So if you are thinking of bringing a 3L into the uk, buy one registered after march 2001 Thankfully it's amazing on fuel so makes up for the tax
