  1. This is true. Especially for the GTi. I recall someone years ago towing a caravan similar to this one, I'm thinking a TDI, I'll dig out a picture sometime.
  2. Me and a buddy go camping for MTB events and even though I have an E91 BMW which is plenty big enough. I miss camping in my old lupo sport. Removed the back seats completely and used the whole boot area and it was plenty big enough. Granted the tent was much smaller back then! Would love to get another lupo one day. Might even upgrade to a GTi. Edit* As for the weight I guess the box would be handy for lighter bulkier items. All in due time.
  3. That looks ace. So with one of the slim boxes two bikes would fit I think. Interesting!
  4. Missed the notification for this, yeah it's heavy and slow in comparison to almost every hot hatch out there now, though at the time, it was a decent machine, and the noise, one of the best. one day i'll have another, perhaps even a gti..
  5. Cheers man, yeah i've still got the Mk1, though it needs a bit of work to get it back to the condition it was in that photo in 2004. Originally i was looking to get a Lupo GTI though settled on an R32 instead lol. I'll get another Lupo one day!
  6. One of the biggest regrets in my life was selling Eric on, it's just one of those things that had to be done at the time though. I am however, so happy that it's had a great life as race car, so please do carry on updating this thread, Erics life story as it were.. He's still on my desktop even after all these years! Cheers Pete
  7. Ah well mines close to 95k so might explain the problems. Will have a look though where the plug plugs in as this morning it suffered with 2 cylinders and I unplugged and plugged in the connector on the side of the block and it was fine. Source of problem might be in sight.
  8. My tdi has started this recently. Started off as a small intermittent misfire then dropped a cylinder a few weeks ago, turned it off for a minute or so then it ran fine for the remainder of that journey. Every now and then it's hesitant and hunts around usually while feathering the throttle due to traffic. Today though pretty much as soon as I switched it on it dropped a cylinder. Regardless of switching it off for a little while. So my journey home was crappy? 27mpg too for 15 miles. No error codes on my scangauge either. I'll check out the connectors at the weekend when I get a chance. Checked out things when I got home but it was fine! Annoying. Anyway I'll try what's been said here so far. Pete.
  9. Hi folks, advertising this on behalf of my sister as she's off abroad now so the car has to be sold. I can vouch that the car is a true and straight drive, low mileage for the age. Silver Mk4 2.0 litre Golf GTI. New front discs and pads in April. Tax until end of September, MOT til early October. Slight dent in nearside front wheel arch - cosmetic work only. Nearside wing mirror knocked into when parked thus electrics faulty. Original tape deck will be put back in before sale. Location: Northwich Price: £2000 Contact (my dad) Deon on zwanie@talktalk.net or 07746800791 Thanks for looking. Pete
  10. A blokey brought some sweets back from Spain and they had small inscriptions inside, like Christmas crackers. Did a translate though google though it's a little rubbish. See what you make. Cheers Wrapper no. 1 Aragon esta de fiesta y canta con buena voz su jota al senor san jorge, nuestro glorioso patron.

  11. An onlooker watching the carnage in Peckham this evening. DSC08059 by Tallika_Fan, on Flickr
  12. Thought i'd share my sights from earlier today with the folks on the forum. Hopefully no body was caught up in this and the other carnage across the city. I heard that Peckham was rumoured to be the next site of the rioting in london earlier today. I currently live near to Peckham so this had me worried. Whilst i was walking back from work i witnessed about 6 or 7 riot vans heading toward Elephant and Castle to make their way toward Peckham, didn't have my camera out then though closer to my destination there was a lone van. A lone dog van DSC08020 by Tallika_Fan, on Flickr Got changed quickly and swapped for the 70-300 so i could get a better view of any action then headed to where i thought things were happening. 10 minutes on the bike, it's all here. Below are a few photos from the set, which is located here: Peckham Riot August 8th 2011 A crowd of people near to Peckham Library DSC08028 by Tallika_Fan, on Flickr A wall of riot police stationed in Peckham DSC08036 by Tallika_Fan, on Flickr A group of hooded youths.

  13. Not sold yet. Sorry, no can do on the carpets I'm afraid as I don't have the time due to work commitments. Thanks. Pete
  14. Sorry Mitch, needs to be a bit closer to the £2k mark. Its a bargain at that price to be honest.
  15. Another price reduction folks. The car needs to go. So £2,000 ono and it's yours. Cheers
  16. Hi can you tell me when it had a cam belt please. Also where is the car located? Thanks. Pete
  17. Yeah on the 26th June the price was reduced to £3000. The most recent reduction on the 9th of July was just a notification as in the original advert it states the price at £2,350. This is the new reduced price. I have edited the post to save confusion.
  18. Not a lupo though the space you have left is still bigger than a lupo boot!
  19. Another price reduction people, car needs to go. £2,350 Thanks **reason for edit, price added to most recent reduction notification**
  20. The car is located in Northwich/ Cheshire. Cheers Pete
  21. Really good to hear that this hasn't put a shop on things. Just a big hiccup. Can't wait to see what he puts out now with all his new shiny bits. Cheers Dave. Pete
  22. Sorry Mitch the car has to go I'm afraid. Cheers.
