  1. Credit where credit is due, this Finchley one is in better condition πŸ˜‚ Has everyone clocked the anthracite on ebay at 230k miles?? Also a cat d, no bites yet and only days left... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/354183736237
  2. Why 2003 onwards?! My 2002 is ULEZ compliant, pretty sure they all are. Only difference is some 51 plates and anything older will have a 5 speed gearbox, but 02 onwards no difference.
  3. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202207107646640?include-delivery-option=on&make=Volkswagen&model=Lupo&sort=datedesc&postcode=bn18hh&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&radius=1500&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1 The ad for this car disappeared for a bit but it is now back, and at least the location is correct this time! I wonder if any photos will be added...
  4. Welcome to the club! I saw this on eBay and the chap selling sent me his folder of photos, looked like a solid purchase with all the spares and a very honest car. My first GTI had a sunroof and I miss it dearly!
  5. Listing now ended on ebay, could it have really sold already?!
  6. That's the ticket! Shame about the mileage, leathers a bit tired now the photos are up but that aside looks a nice example.
  7. Have you spotted it yet? πŸ‘€
  8. Managed to track it down (wasn't in the same spot as last time!). I took the photos pretty quickly and on reflection they still aren't great but you can see the front bumper needs some paint and the marks on the front arch that I mentioned. To be honest I don't think it's more than damage to the paint so perhaps a partial respray and a new drivers side mirror, aerial (!), plus a wheel refurb, and you'd have a decent looking car? Last photo is the obligatory "look two lupos!!" shot I couldn't not get πŸ˜…
  9. The number of sub 100k mileage GTIs must be few and far between now. Mine is at approx 103k and is now just over 20 years old. The days of Β£3,000 affording you a selection of moderate condition examples with 90k-100k on the clocks seem to be well and truly over sadly. I also fear there are so many of us looking for a raven/laser that if/when one is listed for sale, condition will almost be irrelevant!
  10. I suspect the one in that pistonheads listing, and also on Autotrader here https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202204104507703 is the one I spotted. The reg in my photo above if run through the DVLA MOT checker shows the mileage was 63,486 miles on the 23rd October 2021. The price is laughable, the body work is really rough - there is damage to the front arch and bumper on one side, the wing mirrors arent the originals, and the wheels are terrible. It'll need a fair amount spent to get it pristine and really only has the mileage, colour and leather interior going for it. I am back up that way in a week or two so if it is still there I'll take some more photos, it wasn't there about a month ago but was a couple of weeks later so it's anyones guess! Interesting that the ad says Wakefield...
  11. Yep it's 01592358058 on the ad! Good luck mk2 if you do get in touch
  12. It's as if it is some kind of mirage! Link above still works for me, maybe try in a private browser window or maybe this link to the seller might give you access? https://www.gumtree.com/sellerads/1426470336?page=1
  13. How bizzare! No matter what I do if I search for lupo it defaults to the cars category, which is why this wasn't coming up. I hope someone rescues that, if it were drivable (or not 600+ miles away from me) I'd be tempted to take a look. Interesting that in July 19 someone must have shelled out a few quid to fix the huge list of failures as it passed again with just one advisory!
  14. Can you post a link? I've even put KY6 in as location and nothing comes upπŸ˜’
  15. Doesn't look like it lasted long unless my searching skills are severely lacking!
