    02 Lupo GTI
  1. Now on ebay with low reserve http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140630545296
  2. The time has come to sell my 2001 Lupo GTI. I’ve owned it for about a year and it’s been a great little car. It’s covered just over 115k and has service stamps up to 94k with the last service by myself in March this year. The car benefits from having both air conditioning which still blows icy cold and a 6-speed gearbox. It is lowered on FK coilovers but will also come with the original GTI suspension, should you wish to change. At this ride height I have had 4 people in the car with no scrapes. The interior is clean and tidy with no rips, tears or cigarette burns to the seats or headlining.
  3. Thanks guys, is the rear self adjuster on the beam axle on the back of the car?
  4. Thanks for your help guys. I have vagcom (the basic version) but haven't got round to using it. I thought this was the case and can't imagine the mot centre being able to do it. I also thought about washers too! I'm glad I'm not the only one with the pikey approach!
  5. Hi guys, hope you are well. After some advice if poss. My GTI has just failed the MOT because the headlamp aim is too low. I feared this would happen as they arent even level and pratically pointing at the floor! I had a search on here and adjusted the headlights using the plastic adjusters till they wont go any further. Unfortuantely the get a little bit higher but not really very much. Anyone got any ideas, I was thinking of taking the headlight out and apart for investigation. Any help much appreciated, thanks!

  12. I can understand how going from a new car to something with a few niggles would give a sense of dread! I was exactly the same last month. I went from a very nice BMW E46 to a 'needing a few jobs' Lupo GTI. I spent a few days debating if i'd done the right thing. All I can say is, despite the few issues the car puts a massive massive smile on my face. Not only that, it seems to get quite a few admiring glances from passers by and is such fun to drive. I'd like to say it's like a modern day Austin Mini but that might divide the crowd! All I would say is the issues you have don't sound major and
  13. In Birmingham mate, it does say under the tittle but doesn't show on the smartphone app :-(
