    you need to be less sensitive and more specific about what you mean

    you risk a 2nd offence if caught using a phone to check speed

    3rd Brake light

    MOT time on the Lupo TDI Sport, advisory on the 3rd brake light, I've got the replacement bulbs but the whole thing is cracking up with age, do I buy a new unit, or can I legally tape it up, the car is black so black gaffer tape will conceal it, I know that it will fall apart if I try to remove it.

    3rd Brake light

    The test was done on Tuesday, I've got 5 replacement bulbs which will be good enough but not perfect, but the outside is chipping and cracking as I try to pull it out.

    G60 Carriers - New

    I think we both would need 15" wheels to run these in our TDI's

    Vegetable Oil

    For the SDI owner, 10 litre containers of Veg oil presumably rapeseed oil from FarmFoods for £8 a considerable saving on pump diesel even if used as a blend

    Vegetable Oil

    I have two TDI's

    Vegetable Oil

    So possible on a SDI with blending but unwise on a TDI? My only experience of using Veg oil in in a 5 cylinder Merc diesel, where it was fine as a 50/50 blend

    Modern Classic car insurance?

    The Lupo is not yet a classic, maybe when the earliest get to 25 years old...maybe

  16. The body work has a few issues, so rather than buy and fix, I'll stick with what I've got, good luck with the sale
  17. I like it, can I ask you to try the aircon just to see if it works, thanks

    Looking for 1litre or 1.4tdi lupo

    pictures, info on service history/maintenance
  19. I am looking for a newer one than my 2001 Arosa TDI, have you pictures of the car, any history, etc

  20. Brakes? Uprated or 239mm up front and drums at rear, if I still lived in N/cle I'd be tempted

    Lupo gti with 244k

    there have been a few on sale with over 200k on the clock

    Lupo gti with 244k

    But not when they are diesel, I have two TDI's one on 175k the other on 167k expect them to outlive the body work

    Tyres

    waiting for the MOT, if I'm lucky they'll last

    Tyres

    Do we need a tyre thread, I ask/suggest because in my experience, my little Lupo's/Arosa's chew their way through tyres very quickly. Front tyres rarely last a year, and that's experience across the board, I've had 3 TDI's, an Auto, two 75bhp 1.4's, a Sport a 1litre, and an SDI. Only one missing is the GTI. I'm sloppy when it comes to brands too, I usually buy the cheapest but I will always put a pair on the front. Is there any point in buying Michelin, or Conti's, is there a wear/performance advantage or is that all in the heads of tyre testers?
