  2. There isn't a best 'range'. Different manufacturers excel at different products. For example stuff like Dodo Juice for example seems to be one of the best. You'll not go wrong with Autoglym or Meguairs. Both are established for a reason.
  3. Mileage/service history/location?
  4. Want!! New addition not added to this thread 02 Impreza STI PPP Prodrive Performance Pack Prodrive front bumper/lights Prodrive PFF7 8.5x18" wheels Prodrive/Milltek turbo back exhaust Decat up pipe Ecutek Map Wallbro fuel pump JDM pink injectors JDM Brembo calipers Godspeed front drilled/vented discs Godspeed pads BC/Apex coilovers Whiteline anti lift kit White front/rear arbs Think thats it. Its bloody rapid!
  5. iPad Mini's are a little over double din, but will fit with a touch of fettling. Take power from the fag lighter. Not sure how you'll manage volume control if mounting behind the panel though.
  6. I think Pioneers AVH units are better to be honest. Don't look as good as the appradio but better functionally.
  7. Double DIN in the Lupo just looks right.
  8. Any distortion around the base of the a pillar?
  9. You can sell me the Centras then My mate with orange ST has sold his ST and got a silver mx5 while he shops for a Supra. He reckons he wont be able to sell the mazda now!
  10. How does it? The surface area of the pad isn't changed, so the area of friction hasn't changed. The extra disc your adding isn't being covered by the pad. All your doing is adding extra weight.
  11. I'm calling **** on bigger discs. If the pad size is the same (because the caliper is) then you don't get any benefit. The cooling benefit will be massively exceeded by the additional unsprung weight. You'd have better braking performance uprating the pads and swapping to 5.1 fluid.
  12. So what braking advantage is gained by increasing the disc size but retaining the same caliper :/
  13. Liquid Yellow V6 is on my bucket list. You jammy git! Still only 16 in the UK? I wouldn't sell it, stick it in a bubble and bask in the appriciation!
  14. I still have the ST. Its running stage 2+ (330hp and 440lb/ft). It only cost me £1500 to increase my power by over 30%. To get 300hp out of a Lupo? £5k min doing all the work yourself? It'll then handle like a complete turd. JBS quoted £8k for a roll in/roll out 250hp Lupo. For that same money just look at what you can buy. I enjoy modding, but each car should stick to what they're good at. lupo's are funky little city cars, theres no shame in that. Golf GTI is not a fast car, so the mods are phrely cosmetic to emphasise what it has.
  15. Could either be unburnt fuel or your cat My ST use to belch clouds of black smoke when it was on the Stage 2+ map. Switching to a decat reduced it a bit, but didn't get rid of it. The ST is reknown for having some retarded timing set up that dumps fuel in the cylinder to cool it on throttle close, so I don't think a Lupo should be doing this. As rich says, get leak test done and have a good italian tune up.
  16. That has to be the most 'scene' thread title i've ever read.
  17. Nice car, bit price seems a tad strong for what is effectively the entry level model
  18. Can you narrow it down a bit?
