  1. The worst part of removing the steering wheel is the airbag. It takes a certain technique and it's very random. You can also accidentally catch the cabling and damage it, if you're not careful. I've just fitted cruise control on the A4, and honestly, removing the steering wheel on that is a dream.

    1.7sdi turbo?

    https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=lupo+sdi+turbo Like I said, been done before.
  3. Nasty. You just need the wiring harness and to check whether it comes with a cage. That's it.

    1.0L SE with GTI engine swap - needs finishing

    It only surprises me because they shared the same platform, but fair do.

    6n2 GTI Seats are 100% compatible, I'm sure???

    Looking for 1litre or 1.4tdi lupo

    But she won't be be. 1k isn't getting you much in the Lupo world. You might pickup a decent 1.0 or 1.4 and there's plenty of tatty SDI's about but anything half decent still goes for more than a grand....... usually!

    Tacho problems...

    I can't really tell what the first of those cables actually is.... is it a fake Ross-Tech clone? It sure doesn't look like one, which means you could end up with some nasty thrown together software package or something. It looks a lot like a VAG Commander cable, but they don't specify whether it is or isn't. Personally, I think it would have been mentioned at least once, because most people who buy VAG Commander are doing it for 2 or 3 specific reasons and therefore, without mentioning it, people simply won't buy it. The second is your bog standard 409.1 cable. Pretty much ideal for most people driving older VW's, including Lupo owners. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAG-K-CAN-COMMANDER-1-4-Popular-VAG-Diagnostic-Tool-For-Audi-For-VW-For-Skoda-UK/223298005186?_trkparms=aid%3D555017%26algo%3DPL.CASSINI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D55148%26meid%3D6331de2df9b44d63934b8b6e9998db02%26pid%3D100505%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26%26itm%3D223298005186&_trksid=p2045573.c100505.m3226 That is a VAG Commander cable. Just be aware that you can do serious damage with the cable above, if you're not careful. It's not like VCDS.

    They should be bolt in. Same seat brackets aren't they?

    Power loss Lupo 3L TDI

    Every 2 years? I've not heard that before.
  12. My SDI also never failed an MOT on emissions. They are one of the cleanest diesels you'll come across.

    central locking

    Mine is for adding remote to normal. There is another around somewhere though. It looks easy though. You're simply mounting two high torque solenoids to the door frame and then attaching them to the pin that pulls up and down. I can't see how you could get a whole lot wrong. That said, the hardest part will be ensuring the pin pulls up and down 100% of the time and there isn't any catching or unnecessary friction. I've seen it done incorrectly on a Lupo before to be fair, so it's not 100% idiot proof.

    central locking

    Retrofit it. Will take a novice about 2 hours or so.

    Of course vagcom doesn't offer that service.
