    Lupo gti rear bumper

    The GTI is wider at the rear, so not without modification.

    Speaker / tweeter wiring

    If you want component, they come with crossover, so the feed will come from the former door speaker, then split the signal to high/low, so you will need to run new wires to the tweeters and possibly the door depending where you mount the crossovers, the old tweeter wiring won't be required. Alpine do a good budget range, there's no point spending too much unless you're amping the speakers. Decent coaxial speakers can be good too and you can retain the OEM dash tweeters.

    Lupo Sport

    I'd go for a high mile GTI for £2k. There's some good looked after examples with history for that price and having owned a lower mileage sport and several high mileage GTIs, I'd take the GTI every time. Put it into perspective, say a 2002 GTI has 150k, it's 17 years old, that is only 9,000 miles a year, it's just been used, if the paperwork is there to back up the miles, get a GTI, continue to look after it and it will hold value.

    G60 Carriers - New

    Blue one came with G60 brakes already, so don't need them now. Might be worth nipping to euro and asking to see the pads? I'd send you some pics of mine but they're at my unit at the moment and won't be there for a couple of days

    Did you use the G60 pads? There are some slight differences

    slammed lupo

    I've had a silly low Arosa and ran my GTI too low, as long as you're vigilant, the sump will be fine.

    Lupo GTI saved from the scrap yard

    Much agreed, my Moon Silver had KWs, a BMC CDA and that was it and I didn't feel it needed anything more

    Lupo GTI saved from the scrap yard

    Watched this the other day and was a good watch. You've done basically what I want to do to mine, sadly my virtually stock Moon Silver was written off, but I'm picking up a former show queen this weekend and bar a few subtle mods (coilovers, new stereo, better brakes) hoping to get it as original as possible. I'm past all the 'scene' days now.

    G60 Carriers - New

    Think the only difference may be is the G60 pads are little thicker due to the discs being slightly thinner. I may be wrong though!

    G60 Carriers - New

    Sliders were included yeah and I'll get some more any in particular? need to fit them, but they look like the right ones!
  14. Hi All, Just thought I'd share this incase anyone is wanting to upgrade to 280mm brakes up front (Should apply to TDIs, 100HP 16v and GTI Models) As most of you probably know, all that's needed is new carriers, discs and pads to do the upgrade, the stock caliper is fine. Autodoc are currently stocking G60 carriers by Mapco for £24 a side plus postage, non OEM, but new compatible and seems less than some of the used carriers go for. Pics attached of part no and the carriers I received.
