  11. my lupo track slag
  12. Hi i work at a Bosch service centre i would say they have gone off book time but 0.9 for spark plugs is abit strong i will have a look on our auto data for you but i feel in the real world there is no more than 2 hours work max.
  13. Hi all. i am alittle new to lupos i have always had polos from the age of 17. i have ahd a look though some topics and looked at brake upgrades for my sport. i have worked out that the gti and sport run the same size 256mm but the gti width is thicker. any what i want to know really is how many people have changed over to the next step up of g60 280mm set up or some thing like a wilwood on 280mm discs set up that was off a ibiza cupra or a mk2 golf ? is there a list any where of parts that are interchangable ie does mk2 golf ibiza brake parts bolt onto a lupo sport/gti hub? sorry if this has been covered, if it has could some one point me in the right direction many thanks chris
