  1. Thanks Silver - selling up is a very ambivalent experience. I've not seen a car I'd rather replace the Lupo with until now. I'll be sad to see it go. Good to see you're still carrying the flag though! You might need to contact the buyer for that. I'd like to get this all done in one hit. I wasn't always here btw, I moved here around 2012. Was Essex way prior to that.
  2. Ok, so apparently I was using 1200% of my inbox limit. Now cleared down, so I should be able to get PMs.
  3. Hey Mitch! Glad to see you're still around. Pictures here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/tptEEmJx4T8yvk9u8 Please note... the wheels on the car are not the best of the bunch, don't forget there are another 4 to choose from. Will try to get pics this weekend. Also, you may notice the o/s tow eye cover is currently primer. I have a spare silver one ready to go on.
  4. I'm positive that's the case, but I'll let someone else do that if that's what they want to do. I have a busy work life and family now, no more time for sitting around with a greasy spanner! Rickie, not sure why on the PMs, but I haven't been here for a long time. I'll get some pictures up, will try tomorrow (needs a wash first!). Following that I'll try to PM you my number.
  5. Almost 20 years, but it's time to sell (see for sale section)
  6. Hi all, I've had my GTI for almost 20 years. We've had some fantastic times. I was a moderator on here a long long time ago, and went to meets, even the Nurburgring with a group of other members. The time has finally come to part with my Lupo. It's not perfect, but it drives like it did the first day I took it from the dealership (as an ex-demo) and is incredible fun. I'll give as much history as I can. I really want this to go to an enthusiast who will cherish it, so the sale is here only. I'm a realistic person though, and if you buy it it's yours to do with as you please. The

    That's still me.
  8. Time for me to chip in... driving carefully, usually around 300 to a tank. Less with 100% town (and less careful) driving. The most I've had so far is 430 miles to a tank. (This equated to 48-49 mpg) I fill way past the click - get about 40 litres in (maybe a drop more) - only when initially driving a decent distance.
  9. You need to take the CD player etc out first, then there are three torx screws behind - one either side, and one right at the back.
  10. The last thread said 99mph at the 1/4 mile. I maintain that there's no way in hell a GTI can get to 100mph in under 15s.

  12. You can get a summons for 31 in a 30 - that doesn't mean it's likely to happen. Guidelines for a COFP (3 points / £60 automatic, no summons) stop at 50mph in a 30, so I would expect this.
  13. The speed awareness course threshold varies from county to county - some don't even offer it, some have criteria which forbids you from it if you already have points. Different forces, different rules. If you're a new driver, then the prospect of getting three more points should worry you a lot more than having these three.
