  1. Still got this, pretty much spends most of its time in the garage on trickle charge, took it out today for a good blast.Not much has changed, had a service, raised the ride height abit.Jobs to do, get an alignment due to changing the height and taking the camber back to normal now it's on the yokos.Disc and pads all round, front pads are beginning to crumble slightly, noted when at jkm for it's service. So will change them all.And the spoiler to get painted, been meaning to get this done. Passed the 6ft test πŸ˜…

    [WANTED] Lupo GTi

    I feel silver is getting a slightly harsh time. I currently own one, and I'll admit not my first choice, but see one in the flesh and they look bloody awesome in my opinion. I've had black and laser blue, black would be my least fab tbh. Good luck in your search.
  3. Thankyou It's booked in for a service a week tomorrow, and getting the temp/coolant sensor, the one that's on the dash as its abit intermittent lately. And the only other thing I need to sort is getting the spoiler resprayed as it's got the common bubbling. Then I will be happy ☺️
  4. So following on from above, got the wheels refurbed in oe silver and also changed the tyres to ado8rs as sadly the road noise was abit much for me.
  5. With the car in the garage I got it out today to clean up the arches and Inside the wheels, not perfect but alot better, also sprayed acf50 on all metal components. Wheels and arches before And some afters Cheers
  6. Hi mate, if I do it will be a job down the line but for now I'm not sure i will.
  7. Managed to source some Cambridge rear lights, finishes the back end off in my opinion ☺️ Quick halfway through pic.. And finale..
  8. Mate come round in his sunflower ph1 172, quite a rare sight.
  9. Bit of adjusting as yes they do have some meat on them as you say I won't be driving it in the rain so can't tell. Will be used on dry days.
  10. Not updated in a while, recently moved, so been abit busy. So the lupos mot was due 14 april and when I got the coilovers fitted by my friend, he mentioned it needed two front tyres soon.looked at the date stamp and they were 2009 on all 4 πŸ˜… so figured I'd replace all 4, with it being used in nice weather now, it has a garage to go into when I've cleared it out.I went with nankang ar-1s Passed the mot And today gave it a thorough clean
  11. Y reg I'd say a 5 speed
  12. As title suggests after a set of rear Cambridge lights, must be in good working condition Many thanks stefan
  13. So got the kw's and spacers fitted, need to have a jiggle around with height or spacers and dos occasionally rub of cornering hard or pot holes. But otherwise really good. Grabbed few pics today on way back from food shop..
  14. Thanks, no won't be going silly low, Just reduce the arch gap currently.
  15. They are v1, I'm looking forward to getting them on.
  16. These arrived today, ordered beginning of the year but were out of stock 😍
  17. Oo handy to know many thanks, went of the halfords guide πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
  18. Yeah i always found myself grabbing the keys to this out of the two. Really is a nice example, so am glad it's stayed.
  19. Huge thankyou to @CLAYTONJONESfor your help with answering my questions, and figuring out better way to upload pictures 🍻
  20. So got round to getting the windscreen washers working again, turned out to be the motor.. Got the call from jkm that the car was all done. Today I gave it a 'deep clean' since hadn't been done since start of November..Two bucketAuto finesse latherAf Iron outAf De tarMaguires wheel cleanerAf drying towelFinished with af glistenAlso changed front and rear wipers to some new bosch one Before After
  21. I'm sure mine's a janspeed.. and it doesn't sit wonky?
  22. Lovely, this won't hang around long! Glwts
  23. Yeh the laser blue was lovely, actually prefer the interior of this one personally, ages better, then the leather that just sags.
  24. So moving forward, with the car only really being used summer/good weather and in a garage when not in use I decided to put the new mats in, gave the car a hoover and is probably sacrilege to some putting them in, but I wanna enjoy the car and these lift the interior over the rubber mats albeit ideal for winter but not likely to see another winter in my ownership Have purchased some parts for the car which I will update as and when they get fitted. Cheers guys
  25. Well had a deposit placed on my clio 182 trophy today being collected tomorrow, so the lupo is now staying put.
