    Lupo Gti wanted

    I have just listed my 2003 (53 plate), low mileage, completely standard and unmolested Reflex Silver GTI on Pistonheads. It has full VW main dealer service history - 15 stamps in the book. Cambelt and water pump changed recently along with discs and pads. Nearly new Toyo's on unmarked Bathursts. Huge history file along with all manuals and both "GTI" keys, one of which is unused.
  2. Bingo! I lubricated the lifter and its fully retracting every time now. Thanks for the advice.
  3. The nearside headlight washer jet on my GTI comes out fine and sprays water onto the headlight, however, sometimes it does not fully retract and stops about 1cm from being seated flush in the bumper. If I apply slight pressure to the circular plastic cover the mechanism fully retracts. Is the likely fix a new lifter (part no 5 in the diagram) with all the associated hassle that brings or does anyone have any suggestions with regard to the existing lifter.
  4. Where in South Wales are you? I am in Cardiff and on my 3rd GTI, having bought the first one in 2012. Once I sell one its only a matter of months before I am missing it so much I have to begin the hunt for another.

    Lupo Gti wanted

    An 05 plate Reflex Silver GTI with 53K on the clock priced at £5,850 has just popped up on Pistonheads.
  6. That's a shame you are not selling it ☹️
  7. I have to say I rather enjoyed the video and the GTI is looking good - just don't cane it to much.
  8. You will love it. I am on my third GTI and have run a Z4 MR and then a Z4 35is in tandem with the GTI and if the sun isn't out then very often I will use the Lupo as its far more fun.
  9. Those Halfords ones look just the ticket. Cheers😁
  10. Thanks for the response. The Xenons are the factory ones and to be fair when they are lit they have a nice crisp white appearance.
  11. The bulbs in my side lights are currently standard and as we all know are underwhelming. Anyone got any recommendations for bulbs which when lit look very similar to the dipped beam xenons. Also, what is the fitment please.
  12. There is currently a "new" pair listed for auction on eBay. I think the latest bid is £62 plus postage of £17. The listing has got about 3 days to run.
  13. I guess I like to keep my GTI OEM. Won't do any harm when I come to part with it😀
  14. What colour red are you opting for. I tried to find out from VW and other sources what the correct colour is, however, whilst nobody could be 100% certain the general consensus was Brembo red.
