  1. This is where it says about the PAX system. https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/new/up/which-model-compare/details/30101-gti?fbclid=IwAR3t9gyTBM9ng20GkFaLc8goHjXsmh1dBUpqZqZLbeXgk5CaJEKFBEnQ8Pk#standard-equipment
  2. I had similar problems. One supplier said they don't fit even though i had the part infront of me. Part numbers i think are 6H0945289A 6H0945159A
  3. Surprised you could not get a demo as Canterbury had one and i was the first to demo it! A few things that i found it Now fitted with PAX tyre (run flats....) Curtain airbags are standard Options reduced- no beats or sunroof from what i can tell
  4. Hi Chris The price is a little bit dependant on a few things 1. Age of the car 2. What gearbox does it have (6 or 5) 3. What colour is the car 4. How bad are the dents in the wings (these are aluminum) Any pics would be great.
  5. The pics are down. So i don't know what car it is. Sorry..
  6. I have decided to put this as a seperate thread as made quite a find last night. Here is the footage in question https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lstKLNbEK9A&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0yBjOLkJbPE7UrNhSTngePLSc5c3PPSRyTov4wAtBPQluujxBtcUiATm8 Here is the details on it From some research I have carried out this was a Driven competition winner. From what I have gathered (I have not seen the earlier episode to the review episode), it was part a viewer review competition between Trevor Lovell and two other viewers and the grand prize being the Lupo Gti. Trevor won the competition (although I am not sure what he reviewed exactly), it was held at Milbrook from what I understand was an S&MT test day. In the audience other motoring journalists where there including Vicki Butler Henderson. The competition was sponsored as part of Jamjar.com (no long exists, was part of the direct line group). As part of the prize (or deal etc), Trevor had to review the Lupo Gti for Driven, this was carried out on the MPV’s episode (2001 Winter Edition), although he actually gave the car to his wife to replace a Citroen AX. The car had no options and was a 5 Speed. The car is a Y plate (as this can been seen during unloading the car
  7. That is exactly what happened on one of the cars i looked up. It might of been T76DBW/L4UPO. I had to determine it by chassis number (fortunately there was a pic of it on the vw website/parkers etc). It makes me pretty confident that the magazine i found is your car. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volkswagen-Driver-magazine-May-2003-Issue-36/133286106743?hash=item1f08789677:g:N9sAAOSwcWJb2E6E
  8. Ok. Possibly not Vw then in that sense. When did say it got registered on the plate it is now?
  9. Did it say it had a private plate on it? On one case (T76DBW/L4UPO) i ha to go via chassis number.
  10. That is probably a press car rich. But what for i am not sure. Its got a regier style grill. Not seen that on a Bora before - might of even found it. If you go onto car analytics (£1.99) it will tell you if it is one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volkswagen-Driver-magazine-May-2003-Issue-36/133286106743?hash=item1f08789677:g:N9sAAOSwcWJb2E6E
  11. it would be the £160 as it i registered pre 2001 when the rules changed. It comes under the 1549 cc rule. If over that it would be £265 https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-rate-tables/rates-for-cars-and-light-goods-vehicles-registered-before-1-march-2001
  12. Ones to updates T76DBW - Is L4UPO (Yellow 1.0e) V43RBW - Is L5upo. Its a mistake on this thread and will be corrected. New additions T58DBW T558BWL - Is L5UPO (Red 1.7sdi e) L6UPO - not related to Y948DWL Y948DWL - not L6UPO tdi - this was used as a long term test car for what car. Y951DWL S924OBY T56JEP Cup Car chassis 36

  14. Not quite what i am after. As in how many of each colour is more what i would like.
  15. Ok. So i got asked a queston from another enthusiat about how many lupo gti's came to the UK. Now we know this number is around 950ish. However how many of each colour. I do know the following 5 In laser blue 77 in raven blue Also there is no real number of colour concepts there are. I do know following 1.4s (blue interior) 2 1.4 sport (blue interior) 2 (Kam's and another that was on here) Gti (blue interior) 1 1.7sdi (yellow interior) 1 1.4 sport (yellow interior) 1 (ex press car) A couple of red ones came to the UK too but i don't have numbers for these. If anyonecan fill in the gaps that would be great. Many thanks
