    We popped to Mexico for the day 👍🏼 

     

    Yeah i have, made a nice different with the headwork and map

    What's fuel economy like with all the mods?  Keep thinking about cams, but the car is still a daily so not sure if it's worth waiting until it becomes a second car.

    Alright mate. Do you have the scuttle panel, and if so is the clip that slots into the windscreen intact all the way along?

    Actually need that bit for my blue one as mine is all cracked, sorry!

    Dash doesn’t have to come out but you do have to remove some lower plastic pieces and loosen the dash slightly. Thin arms will make it easier but it’s still a major fanny on. I took my wing off to replace my hinges because my triple square but was too long. 

    I’d rather rest a gearbox on my head, I’ve done it and it was bad. That’s how much I hated doing this.

    Well I have fat arms, so this isn't going to be fun.

    I imagine it may be one of these jobs I'll put off until the door physically falls off 


  4. Hi all,

    Both hinges and check strap on my driver's door have failed, the door will physically lift off and will go all the way back of the wind catches it.

    Question is, can the hinges be repaired or is it a case of completely replacing them?  And if they need to be replaced, does the dash have to come out?

    Any help/advice appreciated.  I LPf anyone has done this before in the North West and doesn't mind helping, I'll pay in beer tokens 😂.


  5. Well it's definitely not as flashy as it once was, but it's still going strong, albeit the bodywork needs a bit of TLC.  Hopefully it will get a lick of paint and an OEM+ look in the future, but the plus side is considering it is now on moon miles, it still drives mint and is being driven daily 😊

    Lupo GTi ECU doesn't like the cruise control option.

    I've never tried it so I could be completely wrong, would the Polo GTi ECU work or is the wiring too different?  Always pondered but never fully looked into it.

  8. Yep 15inch will fit fine, just check the offset and width are ok so they don't rub/poke and also tyre size.  I run 7j with 195/45/15, on narrower wheels 195/50/15 can rub such as on the GTI Bathurst wheels.

    There's a few good websites too for checking the difference in offset, width and rolling radius against your old wheels, just Google offset difference calculator.


  9. 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.

    Thanks mk2 :) The gti looks great but may be out of my price range at the moment. Just missed out on a Sport which had 55k and full history for £2k so abit gutted but I’m sure they will come up again if I’m patient!

    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.

    Nah I had lupo ones lying around because I was due new pads/discs anyway and they are supposed to fit. You got yours on without any issue?

    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
