  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
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. The pics are down. So i don't know what car it is. Sorry..
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Ok. Possibly not Vw then in that sense. When did say it got registered on the plate it is now?
  21. Did it say it had a private plate on it? On one case (T76DBW/L4UPO) i ha to go via chassis number.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
