  1. Wind deflectors? And how bad is the dent on the bonnet?
  2. Can't beat washing up liquid for removing grime and grease.
  3. Any that you make fit.
  4. Back end still locks up on mine with the bias valve wound all the way off. You get used to it.
  5. Yes, however OP only mentioned draining all coolant, not refilling too
  6. Sorry if I've completely missed the point here. But has the sensor itself been tested? It's one of the easiest things to change, and I too find it hard to believe that water has gotten into the ECU and the only contact to be affected out of the many, many contacts inside is just the throttle pot one....
  7. Remove the thermostat and let it run for a minute or so from cold, with the thermostat cover plate removed..
  8. Welcome! A hairdryer would be fine for removing the side strips. Mine peeled off very easily, but the remainder I removed by using a bit of heat and petrol (Although I'm sure tar & glue remover would work just fine!). Provided you clean it up properly, there won't be much of a colour difference A few mods I've seen (And done back when I had my first Lupo!) Colour coded door handles (I may have some silver ones sitting about actually) De-wiper rear Change of colour to interior dashboard panels Cup holder - You'll definitely soon want one if it doesn't already! Mudflaps (Some on facebook atm for around £20 IIRC) LED Number Plate Lights LED Interior Light Replace 12v cigarette lighter port with twin USB socket. GTI Instrument Cluster & Binnacle GTI Seatbelts (Good luck) GTI Steering Wheel Look forward to seeing the updates!

    Car back, fresh paint. Slowly coming together now 😎
  10. The usual upgrade is to sport/tdi/gti front hubs/uprights which allows the fitment of the 256mm brakes. Not sure if anything is particularly different that would stop this on the 3L though.

    Looking good! And thanks for the handy tips regarding the top mounts!

    Well, some good news I think! Ive taken the car to someone to have a look at, need to be ready for the start of May so makes life much easier. Compression on all four cylinders is fine, no issues. They think it’s just that the spark plugs were really bad. Potentially unburnt fuel or something then? Given compression is good on all 4 I can’t see it being actual oil getting in. Perhaps I panicked a bit?

    I guess in summary I’ve changed from what was a 3.7:1 final drive to a 4.27:1, using only standard 085 box parts. built it using gears from two different gearbox codes. 2nd goes to about 53, 3rd 73, 4th 86, and I’m guessing 5th will be about 100ish. 3rd used to be good for about 110. Hoping this difference shows in the stage times. Acceleration is so much better now!

    In that scenario that would just be the gasket I think? It's been that long since it's been in bits anyway I couldn't remember where the feeds where to be honest. Yeah I saw your write up on them, I've got some longer bolts so will be sure to put them in as soon as they arrive. I'll post ratios soon.
