    Lupo 1.4TDi, 2004, Anthracite Grey, 89000 miles.

    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

    I like it, can I ask you to try the aircon just to see if it works, thanks

    1.0L SE with GTI engine swap - needs finishing

    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

    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?

    Looking for 1litre or 1.4tdi lupo

    I'd buy on condition and if it were a colour I didn't kike I'd learn to live with it, TDi's are getting rare

    Looking for 1litre or 1.4tdi lupo

    As its very rare to get a white Lupo, Silver is best for reflecting the sun in the years when we get a summer

    Getting the SDI on the road again

    might be a useful source of parts though

    Lupo GTI modifying from scratch advice

    Why not, is it a weight issue or do you prefer high revs over torque

    Help / Advice / diagnosis

    Koko, we need your location to be able to suggest a garage that can sort you out, if you are near Cardiff, its NG Motors, or in Swansea Rtec, but there are lots more, to start with it needs a diagnostic lead linked to a laptop plugged into your car's portal, the portal is under your ashtray.

    New owner 1.7 SDI

    we are on the engines in the 4th Generation Polo Typ 6Q/9N/9N3; 2002–2009, most basic engine was the 3 cylinder petrol just 1.2 litres

    how do i fix this

    Oil leak in gearbox is a common fault, starts jumping out of 5th then works its way down the box, not really fixable either

    New owner 1.7 SDI

    Not as nose heavy as the SDI version, only driven these as hire cars in Spain but the 4 pot diesel has ugly handling compared to say the petrol 1.2

    New owner 1.7 SDI

    I think it was only running on 3 cylinders, which would explain the smoke and the lack if poke, have driven a Lupo version since and was pleasantly surprised, similar performance to the 1 litre petrol

    New owner 1.7 SDI

    Agree, the TDI is the car to have, I had an Arosa SDI for a while, very slow and very smelly, good bit was the wind up windows
