    Hi, I have a 2002 Lipo & I have been experiencing all the same problems, i found out yesterday that it is the crankshaft sensor, they aren't very expensive to buy, hope this helps.

    Stripped Alloy bonnet sounds great to me - any better picks?

    Fully synth ep75w90 is what i use from these guys. 3.1L https://www.westwayoils.co.uk/ but we have the opie oil rep on here who might be able to give a club discount. They have some good lube. i'd personally get a new back door fix the arches and swap the fuel lid. The car would instantly be worth a sh!t load more. what's the inside like? I'm just doing up another SDI right now. Sourced a new drivers seat cover from Germany (passenger side over there). You'd love a Lupo 3L steering wheel. Ok, so i would, but they're rocking horse poo over here and stupid money in Germany. oh, and I was out today cruising at 80- rev counter reads exactly 3000 at that speed, so you can do gearbox ratio tests.

    Welcome. yeah, don't drive it if it whines. At all. It may just need a £2 part to fix it.... usually the needle roller bearing inside gear 5. Before getting a new box, have it stripped and checked. Strip down takes just 15mins. May still be salvageable at minimum cost (about £150 incl parts and labour), and you'll have a box that is like new. FFV code boxes are hard to find (for SDIs)....

    Plenty of miles being put on the Lupo lately, all fun miles too! As it’s not my daily driver, every time it gets taken out it gets ‘driven’! Winter plans are to remove front subframe and everything else on the front end and powder coat the lot, the underneath will then be finished. The dash and doorcards will be getting flocked as i hate the texture on the standard dash and the doorcards are a horrible grey material. Gave it a thorough clean today, wheels off and arches all cleaned up, something i find really satisyfying to do.

    Cheers mate! Nah I didn't realise that, kinda sucks! My insurance is due Jan and I was actually thinking of looking at a more specialist place to insure it anyway. Will have to have a chat with them when it comes to it! Small update, got myself a custom steering wheel! Flat bottom like the newer VW ones but with the standard lupo centre so theres no issues with airbag/horn! Love it

    A few more pictures, Nothing has really changed apart from a few interior knobs and switches. Really need to remove those window tints.
