  1. Clutch is now fixed, will be MOT'd in the next week or so
  2. It's not moved for almost a year, stuck a battery on it & started straight up drove it 10miles home from storage. It is driveable but requires to be started in gear, once moving gear changes are easy enough. Some more research has suggested this could be the slave cylinder sleeve which is about £5 but is a box out job to get to it. The clutch is heavier than normal but it bites fine, it feels like its not releasing fully but does occasionally! It needs a good polish, the pictures make it look better than it is close up. Comes with full tank of fuel in it!
  3. My very rare 2001 Lupo 3L 1.2 Tdi Manual is up for sale, for the simple reason I've not used it for over a year & its a little project for someone who's spanner handy (Its now FIXED!!!!) What's a 3L you ask? Its about £35 to fill it up & you get over 600miles on a tank! & free road tax too. Very rarely available & hard to find even in Europe, the most economical road car with an engine ever produced, this one is correctly registered in the UK. Its been converted to manual (these are originally an automated manual gearbox but the hydraulic robot gear change mechanism
  4. I am putting my 3L up for sale as I have bought another one from Italy. Ive owned it a couple of years now. These are rare! never seen another in the flesh in the UK yet. Fun to drive & monumentally economical. £2300 ono Its bright green, left hand drive, Automatic tiptronic (manual 5 Speed gearbox but hydraulic changes) Year 2000, August 2016 MOT, 96000 miles, Cheap'ish to tax £135 per year Yes it does stupid MPG,s 75 is about normal but 90+ is quite achievable 33l get you to the French Apls from Dorset. It's not slow either, surprisingly spritely Yes it has ally doors, boot, bonnet &
  5. Check my profile on the left<< & also run a 1JZ-GTE JZX81 Cresta
  6. Well its my eco car out of a collection of not very eco cars... However I do hypermile it where possible but don't go silly. It does much of the work itself, its coasts on downhills, has start stop etc. I often instruct eco driving (when not instructing on circuit!) so can easily eeek the best out of it without really trying. I've have the Torque app & a V-Gate dongle & its interesting to see what makes it eco with the live data displaying. There's a few aero mods planned & some tweaks here & there, as & when I get time to play with it.
  7. Hello all, thought I'd introduce myself as no doubt I will have a few questions coming soon. I've recently bought a 3L & have been getting the hang of it. I've owned a multitude of cars over the years & this one I'm quite liking. My record so far on the economy front is 114mpg over 250m, but its generally doing mid 80's in normal driving. I've a few mods planned, cruise control & possibly a manual conversion....
