  1. I do have a instagram account but it has nothing on it. I use to follow some people. Its useful whe you get comments like this....
  2. Nope. It is the standard suspension. However during the 2nd owners ownership it did have coilovers which mens they probably have 25k less mileage than the rest of the components.
  3. I am happy with the lights i have. They are something that could of been done at a dealer. They have been on the car longer than the orignals have.
  4. Thank you. It was worth it. It would be trickier now for certain parts (eg spoiler etc)
  5. By all means. I have owned it since 2014. I am only the 3rd owner and i got it 48000 miles. It was not my daily and certainly is not now (i live fairly near my work so i walk in) During production in Feb 2005, it had a sticker on the slam panel saying there was a alignment issue, so it was taken off the line. I have the sticker somewhere, just not on the car. Car was 1st registered in June 2005 1st Owner was based in the Birmingham Area. He owned it until 2011. A pic of the car there ownership can be found here - 2nd owner was on here. Username of Lupopo. He bought it from the 1st owner. We met in 2012 and he was the orignal orgainiser of the meets at bluewater (takes me back for sure). Still friendly with the guy to this day. But anyway at various points he umm'd and arr'd selling the car (never advertised publicly but had been mentioned to myself). Hehad done some mod's including fitting Mk4 Golfs seats, coliovers and sound system. By late 2013 i had just got back into work (was on Job Seekers on/off for a while from 2012) and i asked the question if he wanted to sell it. He said yes, he knew that if i bought it was going to spend the money on jobs it requires etc. The rest is history. Here is my thread of the car, i have not done much since the main work i did. I have not updated the thread much since 2017. But then again i have not been to many shows either. It is something on my radar to do. But life changes. Since Mid 2018 the car now lives in agarage which certainly helps. It does not do as much driving as it used to. Although last year i drive it too Castle Coombe (not for a Vw show, there was a reason for that) and perfomred faultlessly.
  6. Not on coilovers. On standard suspension It was filmed in Essex near braintree. Not from where I am from. Thank you for the above comments
  7. Hi all. So i thought i'd put this here. My Lupo Gti has recently been featured on JayEmm on cars. Link is below. The review went very well.
  8. Sage green that. They did it from 2003 to 2004 i think (possibly 2005, cannot recall)
  9. I know the ball joints where for a long time before the parts where removed from the system difficult to get. Here is he diagram from ETKA. Slight confussing as there are two part numbers and hertige seem to say its not avalaible either. https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/lupo++lupo+3l+tdi/lu/2005-441/4/407-407000/#9 To be added on the list Aluminum bonnet - Not avalaible since after the lupo went out of production. Basically if you ordered one frm Vw you got a steel one instead. SE side badge - avalaible to the SE only. Lupo rear badge
  10. Pics don't seem to be working for some reason.
  11. Where built 03/04 is when it changed.
  12. For your car it is a red. It should not have a B in the serial number to confirm that.
  13. Try here is a good starting point. Does it have any options? If the spoiler has bubbling thats common and was caused by the spoilers being left in primer in a damp environment in the factory.
  14. Spoilers - yes, this is a common issue. What happened was they where left at the factory primmed in damp environment. Absorbed the water, then sprayed then when warm the moisture came out. The only way to fix this is to buy a new spoiler (primed), leave in a house for a good 1 year (dehumified) then take it t the pain place. No problem since Third bake light. Mine went because the cable went, common issue that TPS provide a kit for. Unlucky on the alternators for sure. Exhuast on Sport/Gti is a centre system. This can be pricey to replace for a OEM one (for a rear box Gti is over £600 when i last looked). If it rattles the baffles are loose. GTi - production location changed in late 2003/early 2004. It it has a B in the serial number is a Belgium built. Earlier cars built in Wolfsberg. Minor detail differences include. Wolfsberg - Red i badge and 1.6 16v on the engine cover. Beligum built - Silver i badge and Gti on the engine cover. FSI - not sold in the UK, cannot run E10.
  15. The Lupo one is No longer avalaible from the dealer. (has been for years) Gti one. It depends where your car is built. If it has a B in the Vin thats a belgium car (generally 04ish onwards), so you need a Silver i over a red i
  16. Tried both the parts on the hertiage DB and they are not avalaible on there at present. I may be worth phoning? What i have found is only "some" of the part numbers have been transferred accross. No idea why all of them could not of been. https://classic.heritagepartscentre.com/?DisplayPage=1
  17. OY02JCJ? I thin it was on collecting car auctions. lots of pics.
  18. Thank you for the sharing the pcitures john. Already got the toy bear as it turns out!
  19. Hi I might be interested in some of the parts. Especially the lupo teady. Do you have a pic of it? Or prices of each parts? Many thanks
  20. Ok So my thoughts on this. Things it needs for sure Slam panel Crash bar pasenger head light Front bumper (upper) Bonnet Rear bumper boot lid grill passenger side lamp washer jet cover Parts it "May" need Drivers head lamp Spoiler (if it has bad bubbling) radiator raditator fan Front bumper (lower) - looks ok from the photos? bonnet catch bonnet cable release Some bits are easier to get than others. Tail gate is a standard lupo item (not aluminum). Where as where it will get troublesome is the bonnet as the geninue aluminum ones have not been stocked by Vw for well over a decade (suprised that was not picked up when assesing the car, but i am not sure the assesor would have full knowledge of these cars). In terms of parts valvue. For just over £1000 that is not bad considdering that the doors and wings are good. Also interior looks in good shape. Then to considder the mechanical stuff like a 6 speed gear box etc. It is probably is worth that if not more in bits.
  21. lupo1.0se

    My new car

    Yes thats the one.
  22. lupo1.0se

    My new car

    Just looked this one up. Might even have a pic of its orignal plate. Its a 05 plate sunroof car which is very rare (i should know i have one). Been keeping track of these to help with with my car. There is one up for sale with sunroof, ac and side air bags. Also on a 05 but more mileage.
  23. 1.4s - Don't know. Probably a retrim job by a retrimmers. SDI/Sport - Thats what i understand about the SDI that it does not exist. It is listed here (there is link above).
