    Well i’m back from a long weekend at the Nürburgring, if you have never been I highly advise you to go. The most incredible place i’ve ever been, a petrol heads dream! The Lupo performed faultlessly and not a single issue! Oh and the tyre writing didn’t last, a permanent solution is being worked on. I’ll leave a few pictures below?? p

    2002 Arosa 1.4s TDi for sale. Silver 147k miles. In decent condition for age. Lowered on coilovers, spotless 15x7 Borbet c’s, spacers front and rear (I think 15 or 20mm hubcentric on rear, 5mm front), 175/50/15 tyres (bit of scrubbage on rears, but still got few mm of tread left all round), rear whiteline ARB, original alloys with tyres will be included (but have had a bad paint job in the past), MOT until end of june. 2 owners from new, I’ve had her 7 years and she has served me very well. FSH with a folder full of receipts. Never wanted for anything but I need something a bit more comfortable and newer now I’m getting old and have 2 kids! Has only ever required an injector rail over normal service items in 7 years. Engine is good and strong, no leaks and only uses around 250ml between 10k services. Bad bits: rust on offside lower wing, missing nearside mirror cover, offside mirror glass needs replacing, needs offside side light bulb, offside brake calliper sticking, due timing belt and service in june. Pics are taken in rain, will try to get more detailed pics at the weekend after a clean. £495 ono as is, or will remove wheels, spacers, anti-roll bar and put standard wheels back on for £250 ono. Located in wakefield, just 1 mile from J39 of M1. Insurance will have been transferred so will need own insurance for test drive. Tel: 07557 one six one one four five

    For swaps: Any lupo headlining for a black/grey headlining from a Lupo GTi. (please note, it cant be one with a sun roof). I dont care if your headlining is dirty or the trim is hanging off, as long as the board behind is in one peace with no bends or holes. My reason for swaps - its getting re-trimmed and I thought it would be nice for someone else to benefit from the nice black trim before it gets destroyed, there's no other catch, I dont want your money! Its the headlining only, no sun visors, no handles. I have tried swapping this since last year and have been let down 4 times! So because of this I will not hold it for you for long. I live in Hull, East Yorkshire, if you would like to swap you will have to come to Hull to do it please. No I will not go to you. Thanks.

    Yeah, the oil looks like it is running down this pipe, coming from somewhere else... try and trace it further up. Inside that pipe in the pic is just exhaust gas (if it is the EGR valve). My guess would be the valve (cam) cover seal is leaking.

    @cj1 Please hijack away - I have DBW bike throttle bodies waiting, if I can get them on with existing management it would be really good to know - how do you deal with the map sensor & calculate the volume of air? @Blue Loop Thanks Man

    If you can afford to keep the Lupo off the raod, you can strip them down to just shafts and get the them powder coated.

    You need a boss kit to fit it to, [plenty on ebay] then you can bolt it in place of the existing wheel, there are YouTube vids of how to take the old one off, bear in mind you lose your airbag

So until you have exhausted stage 1 there's plenty of better things to spend money on. 11 litres of subaru intercooler jammed in the grill here:

    Don’t be silly, I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of sausage. They’re all mostly the same I’m sure.

    IIRC all lupos only have a key and no remote. The central locking isn't remote. Anyway, you'd be able to tell. Mainly by the boot lock if you're really unsure. These turn differently depending on if it is central locking or not.

    you only need to code a key for remote central locking, regular should work fine.

    piece of stupid trivia... "pop" is a brand. so when you ask for pop rivets you're asking for a specific brand of rivet. they are called blind rivets someone who sells rivets for a living told me. It's like asking for a hoover instead of a vacuum cleaner. yes i know, mad but true! A most rivetting discussion that was...

    I have to find this occasionally for folk & the search is a bit of a mare so I thought I'd do a separate how to & hopefully Ray will chuck it in the info section for me like a diamond <3 taken from here http://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/88315-swapping-the-front-badge "handy that my badge is red as it makes it easy to see the clip you need to pop... Stick your screwdriver in, you can get a good angle if you feed it through the bonnet catch... ...and push down & out until the clip pops... ...then yank the barsteward out! Bish bash bosh." Also from my build thread, if you're wanting to split the badge to paint it different colours... "Got some frog tape from B&Q (jeebus that's stuff's expensive) to mask off my front badge, then worked out I could separate it instead by prising it apart at one of the clips then carefully working the screwdriver round the edge "
