    2003 Seat Arosa TDi

    Just a feeler here. I haven't driven my Arosa in a few years as I'd given it to my uncle. He got it MOT'ed and it's came back with a few problems. Seat Arosa 2003 1.4 TDi SN03 VLW 128,000 Miles 1.4 TDi with AMF engine Decatted Remaped Longer 5th Gear Golf Gti Seats Elephant Hose mod Electric Central Locking Electric Windows 280mm Seat Ibiza Cupra Brakes 15" compomotive lightweight double 5 spoke wheels Cruise Control Stalk fitted but not activated EGR Delete and ASV removal K&N Air filter Whiteline Rear ARB. So fairly Modded but for power and reliability. Bad Points It failed it's MOT. It's got rusty rear arches and sills. The Car in general house rusty bodywork. The clutch has some air in it. Here is a build log of it. I'd rather some one bought it and used it for parts or fixed. I'm asking for offers and you can drive it until the 15th of December (when MOT runs out). Offers please.I will upload pictures if there is interest. It's at my Uncles house and he lives on the other side of the city. He also can't work a phone camera lol. Cheers :-) Located in Dundee Scotland.

    2003 Seat Arosa TDi

    No it's a red one. I'll be honest I haven't seen it myself just got the scan of the MOT sheet. The body work always had rusty arches from when I bought it but it's supposedly moved to the sills on the back. I'd be surprised if the cars where galvanised but there a ton of stuff on the car which is worth good money. I don't have a drive way as I live in flat. If I did I'd break the car and get my money that way but I don't so I can't. I have got the reg in the description so you can see the MOT sheet.

    Work Horse Arosa tdi

    TBH this will probably a very very boring thread as I bought the Arosa to be my work horse as its cheap to run etc etc. But it will help me keep a track of what I'm doing etc. I've been very surprised how powerful it is etc. For a 1.4 its surprising. Much much nicer on the dual carriage way than my old 'rosa sport. But it's a bit scruffy and needs work doing but its a work in progress. Pic's are to come but I don't have my camera currently. It's scruffy on the outside and the gearbox linkage seem worn or loose? Its a red 2003 Seat Arosa tdi. To do quite soon : Wash Clay Wax Debadge ( small silver ones on the boot) Change the headlight bulbs Get some Car Mats Change gear knob Change wiper blades To do fairly soonish : Full service just so I know its been done Oil change Fuel Filter K&N air filter (not for any gains but its cheaper to wash and reuse than throw away air filters) Better tyres or new wheels or both lol! route ipod cable out To do later : Arbs Change headunit for one with ipod and dab Fix rusty arches Remap Scangauge stickers maybe? Pics to follow! Replace intercooler (standard size) Make intercooler spray (jdm lulz) Fit 0.622 5th gear 70mph at 2krpm Fit a catch can or do the elephant hose mod(will make a thread shortly) Fit wind deflector (because its hot not because I'm "scene") Make tyre spats (aero mods) Get some mini one r81 imola winter wheels (lightweight!) cage mod

    1.4TDi Decat

    I don't really drive my Arosa much anymore but I got a decatted fitted to it cos why not lol. So it's a 1.4TDi, Remapped to "100bhp", panel filter, egr blocked, race pipe and elephant hose mod. The fit is so so. I'd pay someone to knock up a custom. I bought it from ebay and the fit isn't the best but it does fit. Performance - Well it makes a difference. It doesn't seem to cough and struggle after 3krpm it really pulls hard till 4krpm. Widening the power band on the TDi is the best thing you can do to make it faster IMO and this does that nicely. Sound- Well it's a diesel but it sounds actually ok when full throttle on boost. Sounds like half a V6 which I suppose it kind of is. But I thought it would make it more tractory but it doesn't. Result. Maintenance- The main reason for me fitting a decat was potential fuel saving and to make the exhaust freer flowing. The freer flowing the exhaust is then potentially there is less back pressure for the turbo. Less forces against the turbo theoretically mean turbo longevity and more performance. Fuel- I haven't driven the car often or tank to tank to give an accurate account on fuel consumption but theoretically it will be better but I will measure it.

    Lupo Tdi driveshaft

    I need a new driveshaft. Apparently there are 3 different sizes. Anyone knows what would be on a 1.4 tdi 2003 without taking it apart? Annoying as all the driveshaft related questions when searching are I'm a mong and I want to lower my car so much the driveshaft touches the body and it keeps breaking. All help is appreciated as always. Cheers

    super Coil

    You can disagree but I would never put them anywhere near any of my cars.

    15" wheels swap/needed

    Hi guys, I'm looking for some 15" wheels to fit my mk2 Arosa. Need to have standard ofset please. Condition or looks don't matter so long as they are straight and hold air. Will need them posted please. Without tyres ideally but will take either way. PM me with what you got! I will have 15" e30 BBS wheels for swap or sale shortly. Not in the best condition.

    lupo/arosa 1.4tdi

    BRO!! That's you! I drive past you everyday nearly. I'm in the white leaf, I'll flash you next time. Sweet car man seriously nice. You will have to give me a lift in it one day.
  15. So I was kindly given a scangauge 2. Looks nice. Can't wait to mess around with all the features. But where are you guys mouting them and how are you routing the cable? I want it to look as stealth as possible but I'm not ripping out the dash or anything silly. Cheers guys :-)
  16. So it's getting colder now. One think I notice in very cold weather e.g. 0 or lower diesels find it hard to stay at temp on motorways etc. Nothing to do with thermostat or temp sender. So if the car isn't at optimal temperature more fuel is pumped in. On some cars and especially in cold countries people block parts of their grill and radiator. This keeps the car at a more stable and higher temp in cold weather without it overheating. So has anyone blocked their grill just so I can use the pointers.

    LUPO GTI tyre size from factory

    Not doubting you but can you explain? Surely it's pretty much all the same as the bigger they are the slower they will rotate no? Some cars have staggered setups?

    EGR delete & diesel purge.

    Yes it will do that now. Your egr valve had an ASV or anti shudder valve fitted. I think it would basically close the butterfly valve to give a smooth turn off. Perfectly normal. Another restriction removed too.

    EGR delete & diesel purge.

    Good to hear. It isn't hard just a little tricky but it's done now. Where did you blank the egr from?
  20. I would only ever use an oem thermostat in the tdi. It fits properly the one I got from Eurocarparts want even close to being snug.
  21. I would still say it's your thermostat or a blockage. I don't see how the sensor would affect a hose not getting hot.

    TDI engine oil

    I don't like oil extractors. Maybe the ones that have been used are bad but on cars that they have been used on, when I have then serviced them the oil coming out of the sump tends to be unusually black. Does an extractor pull all that out too? I like to pour about 1/2 litre of clean oil in when the sump plug is out and the oil has finished draining. It pushes more gunk and old oil out.
