  1. The Sport models come with rear discs, other than that the other models petrol and diesel are the same, I'd imagine rust is a big problem for you in the frozen North
  2. Put an ebay search into your computer, then take your pick, if you are in South Wales I can give you a set of Arosa 14" alloys, gratis https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2062857.m570.l2632&_nkw=vw+lupo+lowering+springs&_sacat=107059
  3. Photo's aren't good enough to determine how good it is, mileage is low but the caveats for these delicate cars is always the bodywork and it needs a thorough inspection if you are considering paying Japanese import prices for one.
  4. Not just 256mm front brakes but discs on the rear too, for the Sport model.
  5. 25% more power on marginal brakes is unwise, actually if you want to get the best out of your cars performance better brakes should be your very first move
  6. I have an entirely different spoiler om mine, I'll take some snaps later when the sun comes out
  7. Only standard on GTI models, like hens teeth these days
  8. Lots of work, I think you would need to match the ECU, and don't forget the Sport has bigger front brakes, rear discs, and a lower valance with fog lights, better seats too
  9. I think its too low, and that is why he's had a new sump fitted, colour is very nice and I like the headlining, need a rear boot spoiler but that's nit-picking, overall I think its exceptional
  10. It can't be upgraded to Sport Spec, only things you can do will be traditional tuning stuff like improved air flow and free flowing exhaust, not worth the bother, and even if you could you are left with deficient brakes. There is very little scope for tuning the petrol engines anywhere in the range, to tune the GTI, some owners opt for the 2 litre 5 valve turbo unit from a Golf.
  11. Wishbones are readily available from motor factors, buy a front subframe from a breakers, or try ebay
  12. Sell it buy a TDI, its the only model that can be modified easily and successfully
  13. on Gumtree in South Wales, lots of money, very stylish and a new sump, not hard to guess why https://www.gumtree.com/p/volkswagen/vw-lupo-tdi/1390992080
  14. If you are a NUFC fan you could spray it black
  15. Similar issue but on the drivers door, remote fob opens everything except the drivers door, key for that one, as its an Arosa with no passenger key its not so bad
  16. The panel gaps are always difficult to get right, endless adjustments needed, or a very good body-shop
  17. put cat cleaner in your tank and give it a fast run before you start
  18. I've had a few mk1 & mk2 Golf GTI'S, the mk1 is overhyped but the mk2 is an exceptional vehicle, my eldest grandson is in the throes of rebuilding his mk2 with a 2 litre 16v motor from a mk3 Golf. I drove it a year or so ago before the modification and despite no power steering it still drives well. The biggest problem for the Lupo gti is always going to be a remapped Lupo tdi.
  19. I'm talking about value for money, Lupo GTI's range from £2500 upwards, you ask 3x the lowest start figure, I just can't see anyone buying at that price
  20. Overpriced I'm afraid, nice as it is you can get a very good mark 2 Golf GTI for that sort of money
