  1. I have done all the above over the last year or so not really because they needed doing as such but just because the prices are really cheap to replace them, infact pretty much all the underside is less than 2 years old. Tie rods and arms was Vaico (£15 each) Front and Rear Springs - Mapco (£20 / £20) Rear Bump Stops and dust covers - Monroe (£12) Rear exhuast - Vegaz (£27) and Vaico holders front and rear (£9 total) Control Arms (wishbones) £48 for the pair, from a company on eBay i think called PowerX Customs or something. arb drop links was also from Powe

  2. Yes i used to have a single din sony dab unit but i bought a Kenwood DMX125DAB double din unit, it works great and the dab is spot on with the glass mount but theure bloody ugly and the pack of A pillar plastics to hide the cable and copper earth strip also really bugs me. I did look at getting a replacement aerial and replace the factory aerial on the rossa but really can't be arsed to drop the roof lining etc. This dab splitter <- clicky ebay link, seems to have what these aerials have just behind the head unit instead of in the aerial itself, has a 12v power feed, then FM an

  4. Get stainless flexi's, give it a good clean and paint with black waxoyl, don't use it when there's salt on the road, I'm lucky its fewer than a dozen days a year when its salted but in the Pennines it could be 5x that

  5. So after many many years ago of Lupo Tdi ownership I thought it’s time for another to put the FUN back into boring motoring. Looking to buy another lupo Tdi became painful, every day I searched eBay, gumtree and autotrader, four, five times a day in fact. That took a period of 26 weeks obsession or what? They were truly few and far between and the good ones always sold on the first day of advertising 🙄It was the lupo I really wanted but the Arosa was also a happy ’second’ choice. So three weeks ago I found, raced, rushed and flew as fast as I could to see an Arosa Tdi, good colour, fair

  7. Yes the rear lights finish it off nicely,for me it’s sat a bit too low but it’s your car and as long as you’re happy.All the mods are a improvement on the Lupo without spoiling it.

  8. Did you see the photos? It was quite shabby particularly inside, low mileage and a rare colour but needed work to bring it up to scratch. I've been around here long enough and you undoubtably have too to know the general consensus is bodywork over mechanics as the latter is often easier and cheaper to fix/DIY. I was mainly thinking about that raven for £6k last year, and a black one with a custom leather interior that I almost bought for a little under £5k from an independant on eBay in January, a couple photos here but he sent me a video and it was in great shape with a recent cambelt ch

  9. I've had mine remapped by a tuner in Llanelli on the recommendations of an enthusiast I know who had been disappointed with another local expert, I'm delighted with it, more torque better economy a delight to drive and as my wife had a Lupo Sport tdi at the same time the differences were palpable

  10. Well, as Frank aka @mk2 has asked how things are with the Lupo now I've had it a few months, here goes: I am absolutely and totally in love with the teeny tiny Volkswagen! To be a bit more specific: I'm driving around everywhere with a big grin on my face, possibly going a tiny bit faster than what would be sensible for someone my age. It's brilliant fun to just not slow down at all for roundabouts (However, the dog would probably disagree with this) The little car is bloody fast. At the same time it's also comfortable. The noise it makes whe

  17. Yeah, only suggestions are noise cancelling headphones, a small lower back cushion and a full neck support. It's the side to side motion that'll get you on a long trip. Even the gti isn't a real GT car truth be told. You need a low revving engine and a long wheelbase for max comfort. You could remove the ARB for more comfort...

  18. With the end of petrol/diesel cars on the horizon I'd use it and enjoy it while I can, no point in storing it as the future will be here very quickly
