    Another in Walmer

    Not bad considering. Its a SE so it would have the Cambridge rear lights fitted as standard.

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Ok. Bit of mega update. Months you get nothing and then several come along at Once. V43RBW added Y924DWL updated L3UPO (Blue auto) updated L5UPO (Yellow Sport) updated with photos L4UPO (yellow 1.0e) to be updated. So within 1 month 7 new cars......

    My Vw lupo OEM - One little surprise....

    I really like this car a lot. For me personally it combines the best bits of my two lupo's (the 1.0 and the Gti) into a good package. The LED lights. I prefer them compared to the daytime running lights on the Volvo which is basically dipped beam. So in the night you thought you where running dipped beam when you where not. I wish they where not supplied but its a legal requirement now..... The Lupo Gti is a car where the power is on all the time. Ok when you can use it. But the Up its good all the time as its turbo charged. Economy is very good. I regularly get over 55mpg on a run (I don't drive it daily though due to a change in circumstances). A longer motorway run in excess of 60mpg. The Lupo Gti I can get just of 40mpg on the motorway, the 1.0ltr lupo I had was over 50mpg but acceleration in that was so long (17 seconds!)

    Expanding the Press Car thread

    Fair point. The reason I put this suggestion up as Vw does not have any records of what cars they had. Hence the idea.

    My Vw lupo OEM - One little surprise....

    Ok. To round this story off. Basically the reason I bought the Volvo was the car I wanted was not available at the time (god damn Vw), ideally what I would of liked to have done is traded in the 1.0 lupo in for this car but that was not possible due to reliability issues, so I subsquently sold it, it was on the road for a year 1/2 after I sold it then scrapped by the end 2016 (Sad times, I do miss that car in some respects). But the Car I wanted came available this year. I ordered it in February and got it by Mid June (pretty good considering some people have waited since Feb and have not got a car). Here it is. I don't think I need to say anymore. Its been quite a year for me in a lot of respects. I still have the Lupo Gti too.
  7. Hi all So I had a thought regarding the press car thread. So this is where I am at. Vw don't keep any records on a system which shows what cars where press cars. My Vw Lupo list is the closest that exists to this as we speak. I now get people contact me directly (so far one) about whether there car is a press car. Without the community I would of missed out a few press cars/important details. So this where I want to go. Create a Wikia for this. This would expand the scope for this and would create quite a good easy to use DB for where to find Vw Press cars. Current status of any that survive etc. However I would need a massive amount of help to do this as it would take years. And certain costs would be involved. (eg Buying Magazines for their articles etc). Thoughts can written below. A poll has been put up to gauge the idea.

    Lupo GTi in U-Pull-It in York

    I have not been recently. I don't know what they have in stock. They had normal lupos in the past. Need to pay a visit. They are not online.

    Lupo GTi in U-Pull-It in York

    One of the ones near me I have seen in the past does do body cuts. I have not been recently. I will go at some point in the near future.

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    Two more added X42NFC and W303WDB (Ex ABT Car)
  12. Basically what you have already mentioned, Sunroof, Leather, Aircon, Side airbags are all rare. Import cars don't have most of these options. Rarest colour is laser blue (about 4/5 in the country). Raven blue is uncommon. Less than 80 ever came here. Antharcite is also a rare colour. Or you could consider this one. Its a bit special....

    Update time. Y937DWL is up for sale. On ebay for £2750. It bit of a bargain considering its history. Has the wrong back box tough (a scorpion). It does have aircon fitted. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Lupo-GTI/283275382096?hash=item41f4874d50:g:56wAAOSwabRb-S~z:rk:8:pf:0

    205/45-15 tires on a Lupo S?

    205/45/r15 are the standard size for the Lupo Gti. However we only get two choices (in the UK) which are both summer tyres. So yes possible but don't. https://www.oponeo.co.uk/tyres/205-45-r15

    Re-installing a 6 cd changer issues

    Interesting. I did get a spare headunit with the 6 cd changer. But I don't have the code for this. A visit to vw maybe required.
