  1. i got mine for £430, has cost me more than that fixing it haha! SDI lyf
  2. How about this as we are on the subject of windows. Sat in the drivers seat, the two window switches dont make either window go up or down. Sat in passenger seat, switch will make passenger side go up and down. Sat in the drivers seat, IF the passenger side window has been opened by the passenger.. i can then close the window i have replaced the switches and all were fine for a bit. and now this...
  3. Update on the blue beast. Cambelt kit and auxillary belt completed yesterday by a local vw specialist. Never got round to finding pictures and the kit etc etc so paid for the privilege. overall the car is brilliant. Looking to swap out these awful coilovers to someone on facebook who are looking for lows. Honestly the ride is horrendous. And finally... the engine light is still on.. STILL need to investigate the wiring to the manifold sensor.. i did change the sensor as that was cheap but fault still exists. Need some pointers. Im also going to say its probably sapping power . had a little whiz in my mates lupo SDI and his really pops! makes myn feel broken
  4. im using an app to track my fuel economy for fun. to a tank i am getting 340 miles with an average spend of £32-£34 . i am getting real world figures of 58-61mpg. My commute is 18miles of twisty,hilly roads, and then 15miles of motorway sat at 65-70mph. so 35miles ish each way. forgot to add i have a 2004 Lupo SDI , 147k miles, standard car with an engine light on
  5. honestly ebay coilovers are ****. i have them on my car when i bought it. i think they are JOM? honestly unless you like "lows" rather than a comfy ride i wouldnt.
  6. i gave up and have mine booked into a garage to do mine.. ideally wanted to do myself but never done it before
  7. looks like £7 went into that car let alone 7000
  8. hey, do you still have the glow plug wiring harness? Also if you do what condition is it in? thanks
  9. Can you post up some links where to buy and stuff. i want to give this a go with your help ofcourse
  10. i lost interest when i saw "cheap insurence" "The Car does not knock or bang im no mechnic"
  11. @mk2 its your friend here. Are you busy at Christmas
  12. Still here! Loving MPG life! my fault is still there.. havent had time to diagnose correctly... havent even checked the wiring etc.. been too busy using it as a daily beater! Got some new wipers today and an Air filter - i also added all the service history to a nice Excel spread sheet which tells me a new air filter is needed after 25k miles!! I need to get kick @mk2 into sorting out the pics for cambelt change or at least gimme a hand haha! i think one of the idlers is making a metallic rattle sound.. it is over due by 25k also!! ****! Also still need to fit the glow plugs (doh!) Lovely car just keeps going and going, just wish i had to time to sort the niggles out!!
  13. welcome Gary. Fellow SDI owner here! I had engine issues but were all the time regardless of speed or RPM. mine was a faulty ECU but yours sounds intermittent however, the previous owner of my car said it came and went until finally giving up being lumpy/loud all the time. Have you stuck a code reader on it? VCDS or a cheap code reader app on your phone? thats a good place to start.
  14. No build thread for me. I might see if I can start one. I'm on the same wave length as you. Mild restoration and small mods to make the car nicer to live with day to day
  15. yeah thats exactly right, been watching the VEG oil my car website and youtube, i want to do it for the experiment side, im happy to filter it, i have seen you let it sit etc. and i got the space. if its free i cant argue with that!!
  16. I have a few issues too that sound the same. Be good to see you fix them welcome to the new GTi!
  17. Don't worry I'm right behind you. Trying to find some local businesses to give me their free oil. Although at 60p a litre I could be tempted to buy it
  18. Not that it matters as i have the SDI but currently doing 330miles to a tank of diesel, and thats around £32 worth at 127.9/L. i do 70miles a day to work and back
