  1. Hi I have a Gamma radio buti do not have a code for it. What is the best way of getting one? Is there a free way to do it? I have googled and the results are slim to rubbish
  2. The back cover Vw still do. Its two parts in that it is a back cover/holder. Part numbers 6H0945289A (cover) 6H0945159A (Retainer)
  3. I saw a guy on one of the Facebook groups doing this. Then again there is a guy on here that has a really low mileage lupo gti (around 3000 miles something like that)
  4. I think thats sold. Apperently from what i heard it sold within 2hrs of the advert going up....

  6. I was told a story once from the Vw dealer i bought my Up from. They said when they first got a Gti in they sold it to a older person...
  7. Been looking into this Read some where the only lupo that is not compatabilte is 1.4 FSI (we did not get so ok - link https://www.acea.be/uploads/publications/ACEA_E10_compatibility.pdf). However RAC contradicts this with the following "As a rule, drivers of cars registered prior to 2002 are advised not to use E10 in their vehicle, as problems have been reported. And as of 2011, all new cars sold in the UK must be E10 compatible." But this does not make much sense as the lupo gti was produced between 2000 to 2005 :S. So i would go with the ACEA doc on that. Although i run my on super unlead which i think is being kept on the lower E5 grade (need to confirm this)
  8. Ok. It does not look too bad. But can't see the chassis rail to be certain. Bit you will need to fix Straighten the the part that holds the wing (name is alluding me) PAS headlight Bumper (upper and lower) Bumper covers slam panel Bonnet - the difficult bit as these are not supplied in alminumum new anyomre. so 2nd hand is the the only option. Washerbottle (this goes behind the pas wing) Grill and badges Bits that "might" be salavageable - crash bar and radiator Ok if you wanted to swap the engine between a gti and 1ltr you would the following Rear beam (has disc brakes) Engine Gearbox Front Brakes/Suspension - unsure of damage so something to consider loom - to note the battery is in the boot. So you have to rewire it to the front or modify the boot floor Exhaust - depends if you want the centre exit or not. I would advise go for standard rear exit as geninune new centre exit rear box is £660. But you can buy a scropian box which is cheaper It suprises me they imported this car in the first place due to the fact it is A. damaged and B. most Jap imports you can find have lower mileage. Although lower milage cars are not common. Jap ones can still be found.
  9. Have you got any pics of the Gti. Just for reference as to how bad it is. Milleage could be a factor too
  10. Ok. Anotehr Press Car to add. T75DBW. Featured in Auto Express. I will update the list. Link to the Driven competition thread -
  11. Ok. So the Major Debunk. It turns out L4UPO Green 1.4tdi Open air and L4UPO Blue 1.4tdi open air are the SAME CAR. I repeat the SAME CAR. How did this information come to light? While searching for Lupo press material (as i do) i noticed a seller had a load of press material bar lupo. Which got me wondering, did they sell some. It turns out they did. Which then came the huge discovery in that both cars are the same car. The blue car is a colour change image (photoshopped). Here is the evidence. As you can see in the top right and middle bottom. It clearly shows a green lupo in the exact same postions as the blue lupo, what confirmed it on the bottom image on the blue car, it still show green on the interior. I thought i'd update this due to this discovery.

    Odd Accessories

    Hi all I thought i'd put this as a wanted. Odd accessories. So if you have a strange accessory. Whether it is a coat, badges, pens or something else lupo related. I would be very interested to hear from you. To give you a idea. Here is my thread with some of these "accessories". To help you. Many thanks
  13. 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
  14. 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
