  1. Some of you may disagree with me on this, but as I was going through the Archive/How To, I realized that we seem to lack basic instructions for fairly fundamental tasks while being overloaded with 'vanity' tutorials so to speak. I'm not saying these are bad, I intend on writing one or two myself when I get chance (we need a proper one for RCL which I will write over the next few days), but it seems strange that we don't have a single tutorial for replacing a headlight bulb on a non-GTI Lupo. This isn't the easiest task in the world for a novice, yet there's not a single description on how to d

  2. Time of year when I start looking for replacement wheels. Running out of BMW options I think (though z4m or a v8 might be fun) tempted by something older and more interesting but it needs to be reliable and used as a daily so approved used warrenty is usually what I go for. Last few cars for those who don't keep up: 3lr Z4 E85 m sport with the sound generator modification and a few other custom bits and enjoyed the sound and handling though the ride was pretty shocking and it needed plenty of things replaced under warranty (wheels, steering rack, rear springs etc.) Mover to an E46 M3 which I

  4. Just picked up my new car which had previously had Cambridge edition rear lights, these were switched back to standard Arosa Mk2 lights for the sale, all the fuses were blown so i replaced them and they blew all over again. Different wiring. While rectifying the problem i found a load of spliced wires and it occurred to me that not many people know how to correctly swap connections in terminals so i decided to write up this little how to. Here goes: This is the spliced loom how i got it (bar pin 6 which i fixed before thinking about making a how to). If this mod was done the 'correct' way, it

  13. decided to make this thread so everyone can stop asking how to do the conversions. also find out why everyone says polo gti looms are easier. done this conversion three times now so iv got the idea how you do it you will need polo gti engine polo gti looms inside and out polo gti or lupo gti ecu and if you have cable throttle get the gti, sport, pedal box electrical CENTRAL LOCKING easiest way to do central locking is to use your old loom( if it has central locking) strip the loom down starting from the drivers side door connecters seperator the central locking wires from the other wire

  15. Renewal is up in July, and I've tried Adrian Flux, prestige, Sky, Quoteline direct, and the cheapest is 1370 with mods declared fully comp, the others were tpft. I've tried directline, coop, and various others (forgot which ones now) but these won't insure me with the mods. Are there any others companies I have missed that would be worth a try? And I'm under 21 if that helps

  18. I've been meaning to chuck this together for a while. Currently, the information regarding fitting it is a bit all over the place and broken, so using photos that I took and information from the forum I've put together this fairly comprehensive walkthrough of how to fit Remote Central Locking. Before starting, you already need central locking as standard. So pov specs are out of luck. Fitting remote central locking is very easy, even for a novice, but you need to be willing to remove trim and mess with wiring. It's not plug and play, but it's not far off. For an expert it would take less than

  19. Right, so after trimming 2 headlining's i thought i should probably put up a how to for anybody attempting the same thing. What you will need: Spray glue - High temp to withstand the summer heat pounding the hell out of your roof Material - I used OEM spec foam backed textured nylon (Audi) Knife - Preferably a scalpel Scissors - A strong pair Space - Space is essential as the headlining is a large piece of car, i recommend doing it on a table Advised to have: Hot glue gun - Handy tool for any trimming attempt, Re-sticking clips/brackets and trim clip bases Hot glue - Black high viscosity for

  22. My mates have managed to tear my passenger side stock door speaker and I can't handle the buzzing basslines any more. I thought I'd take the opportunity to put some better speakers in, without upgrading my head unit from the one that's currently installed nor installing an amp. The Sony head unit has an RMS of 17W x 4 channels. Not fully understanding the whole RMS front is stopping me going ahead and buying a set. In terms of some Focal RMS's, for example, we have: 165A1: 60W RMS IS165: 70W RMS PS165: 80W RMS What would installing any of these result in, with my head unit's RMS being 17W? Wou

  30. Hi Folks, I thought I was lucky when I found a tdi Lupo with the full length sunroof last winter, but maybe I'm about to change my mind... With the roof open, it started to rain (for wot seems like the 50th time) today and I went to close the roof. 2 inches from fully closed an ominous clicking started up from the off side front of the roof, and it wouldn't close properly. I took my finger off the close button PDQ, and when I got home, I had to spend an hour clearing out the the garage so I could put the car in it for the first time in ages! Anyone recognise the clicking problem and know how t

  31. I always look up to guys (inc girls) on here who does their own jobs, i always wish i could do it but never have the confidence to try.. Today i did I bought a set of what i am told to be mk2 scirocco wheels, "original G60's" some say, or similar to new G60's but with circles instead of D shape holes. 2 were still in silver a little rusty, and 2 painted black. I sanded them down by hand not really to get the paint off but just to scrub them hoping for more hold for the primer to stick to and to get rid of any rust. I then sprayed them with primer, got around 3 coats on each rim with a

  32. Updated: 29th April 2014 So, I figured it was best to make this into one single thread rather than having a few explaining how to fix the same issue.The 'official' way of fixing this is to buy new checkstraps. They are £40 a pair, but why spend more than you really need to. If you're willing to get your hands a bit dirty, here are three ways you can fix it quickly. This thread was inspired by the original checkstrap fix thread found here:http://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/78249-cheap-fix-for-noisy-door-check-straps/ Like I always say, this is just a guide. You might need to use a bi

  34. Hi all Been reading up on the Lupo's/Arosa's for a while now lurking about on the forum. Going to see an Arosa on Sunday and feeling pretty confident about what to look out for when I do. Apart from the engine! It has a 1.4 8v. What's the engine code for this engine? I assumed it was the 1.4 16v which the Lupo's had to but I was wrong! What's the feeling with these are they strong or will i have to have a good look at it?

  43. My Little Cherry, she's an old little car! From the moment I met her I knew we'd go far! With me at her wheel, It's what I had been dreaming of... Shows and events, and more learning than I could think of! No matter the weather, she gets thirsty like me.. She smokes and its awful, she drinks oil like it's free. Never a care for what long driving brings.. Yeah I know, pistons and rings. What would I do if the tread went on the tires? At least if the electrics fail, @Rich can put in new wires.. Tires can be fixed, @danno can buy me
