  1. Not quite what i am after. As in how many of each colour is more what i would like.
  2. 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
  3. mine came on Monday. Its a nice model.
  4. Hi all Sorry for not replying earlier. I understand your points and i am running 195/45/r15's at present. But i would really like the OE size (and i am sure other people would too). The rest of the car standard and it does bug me. I am not in any rush for them. Yes i did find out about the Toyo TR1. But the problem with the toyo is mainly they are a summer tyre only. It can be driven during all weathers but you have to adapt your driving style (according to Toyo UK) I did ask with specialist tyre providors (three so far) if there are any plans to produce any and they have no plans at present. I am talking to a friend of friend who works in the tyre trade and the general concessous is they are trying to phase out that size of tyre. I will keep enquires going as one day it could be the case of a viable alternative coming about.
  5. Hi all I have been keeping an eye to see what alternatives there are to the toyo proxies. However from what i can see they have seemingly "doubled" in prices. Which leads to the assumption these may be out of production? If this is the case, it is slightly concerning. However we can still use 195/45/r15. I am making enquiries to see if there is a company that might be able to help. I will keep the forum informed if I make any progess
  6. Update time. A bit more research later and a few bits of information have come to light So the photo of the press car L5upo that appeared in EVO. This is NOT the same car as believed to be OW51LCZ. Two sepearte cars. However to clairfy on the subject. V43RBW is probably this car. Two many similarities. Which leads onto V43RBW. Where do i stat on that? Well i think this sums it up "As of the 31/5/2019, the car has been dismantled for spares. Before this date I did make the owner aware of this cars history, they briefly changed their mind and offered this car to me, I asked for some detailed photos of the car which unfortunately they did not provide and they changed their mind to break the car up. A sad end to car I felt worth saving." S112JWN - as it turns out the plate was not real. A vw polo estate debunked this myth (from the press office too) Also there a Lupo Gti cup car press car too (that one is quite interesting, currently compiling the info togther on that. So this is still soldiering on. Its a shame my upload space is full. Otherwise i would put new photos etc up. I am putting this togther into a book. Currently on about the 7th draft. If you are interested give me a shout.

    Close Encounter

    I see pics of this on facebook. It had quite a bit of paint work if i recall.
  8. Lupo SE Autos are really rare. Only about 80 where ever on the road at one time. I would use another car. https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/volkswagen_lupo_se_auto
  9. I am surprised ray you don't have a set of bbs 814.... These are the OE wheel option for the Gti in forgein markets (i wonder why we did not get these in the Uk?)
  10. Would be cool to see some pics of laser blue gti. They are pretty rare. Especially a 55 plate.
  11. In the past. Several around kent/essex way. Major shows include stonor park. Although the Gti won't be ready for it. There are some jobs that need doing which i need to attend too. I can provide a list of shows i am considerring.
  12. Any pictures of it? that would be nice
  13. I suggested for them too do this. YESSSSS
  14. Tip. Before painting. Keep in a dehuminified envirment. This will remove any trapped water inside of it. Mine has not bubbled up since. But i did keep it in this enviroment for about a year.
