  1. So... believe it or not, I'm browsing around eBay the other day and I spot this and add it to my watch list: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265078145430 (HL0 1J0 959 753 AG) I'm loathed to spend more money on this key situation though.... and then out of the blue, the seller sends me through an offer. Several pounds off, with free delivery. I couldn't help it. 434Mhz (you can see in the photo) which is the same frequency as mine. Figured it would be my last go and this was it, absolutely as far as I'm willing to go with the merry go round. Key arrives... go outside this morning....
  2. This is a very interesting post actually. My nan owned a Seicento 1.2 litre. Little pocket rocket it was actually, albeit made of tinfoil. After she stopped driving, it sat on her drive for a good 2 years without really moving anywhere and when we came to start it with a booster pack, the EML came on. After driving it to work everyday for a whole week, I was able to clear the engine management light and it indeed didn't come back on. However, as you say, in my experience this is an exception to the norm. Car ECU's are actually smarter than people realize and there are two types of fa
  3. If the engine light is on then get it scanned and clear it. If it comes back, you've got an issue. I think with springs, it's the law of diminishing returns. You could spend hours taking them off, selling them privately etc, not getting as much as you expect and realizing it wasn't worth the hassle. Equally, you can sell them on the car and get no significant increase in your sale value. I'd put the wheel trims back on definitely. The lupo you linked above has 12k miles and like yours, it's USP is the low mileage except that one is very very low which is rare. Like someone
  4. They're utterly delusional. Post a link.
  5. Unfortunately, when you spend money on a car you aren't guaranteed to see much/any return. That's part of the reason so many decide to break their modified examples in an equally futile attempt to sell second hand parts. Obviously if you still enjoy the car, you could reconsider selling it? The low mileage does make this quite a nice opportunity for someone and it's not slammed on its arse, which makes it more desirable to the second hand market. On a very good day, you might get £1000 but if you price it too high, you'll end up getting no offers at all. However, the unique selling
  6. I'd be lying if I said it was anything but frustrating though. I swear owning a Lupo is all about challenges and the scale of failure... which we either fail catastrophically or only slightly. We only tend to post about our wins. I have two aftermarket remote keys. Neither syncs up to the car, despite the fact they should. I ordered a China key blade for my second OEM fob which never really fit right but was at least passable. I lost that in my bloody garage... My fault Then I spotted this on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Key-blade-head-uncut-HAA-for-Seat-2-button-remote-fob-Ibiz
  7. Yes please mate. You got them from OBD2 didn't you? Plan is to prove that all but the GTI can get SKC from there
  8. Officially completed it. I now have two GTI keys.
  9. Rostra 250-1223 Universal Electronic Cruise Control Kit Very nearly did this on my own lupo a few years back.
  10. Of course it can be done. It just can't be done OEM.

  12. An update: I'm not quite there yet. I firstly purchased 2 flip keys from Aliexpress. These are supposedly 'improved aftermarket replacements'. Turns out, neither remote control seem willing to pair with the Lupo remote system currently. Which is really frustrating, as you can imagine The OEM replacement I bought, which was for a Skoda. Paired instantly. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong though? Been a while since I actually did the key pairing process. As for the transponder coding for the GTI. So, I purchased a blank transponder from China. It's having absolutely none of it. Best g
