  1. Ok I'll work out a price and let you know Monday/ Tuesday as I can't get to it until then! Can you PM me your address? cheers Chris
  2. Hi yes still got the ARB! It a polo GTi 22mm one and I have links and bushes for it too! Are you local (ish)? I only ask as postage might be costly due to the length! Happy to work out a price though! Cheers
  3. Hi wings, someone has already asked for it but if he decides he doesn't want it then I'll let you know! (Yes I would post but will need to check the postage cost)! Cheers
  4. ANY TAKERS? I can look into postage costs tomorrow if that helps anyone?!
  5. No it doesn't fit over the 280's! I had one in my old mk2 golf GTi which had 280's up front! When I got a puncture I had a right kerfuffle switching the wheels around to get the space saver on the back and the back wheel on the front where the puncture had been (it wouldn't have been quite so bad if I hadn't have already taken the punctured wheel off)?!
  6. Ha ha that's a new one?!? Sorry I think they'd better go with the car! Having enough trouble selling it as it is!
  7. Lol! Should be able to sort something out! Where are you located!?
  8. I'll go to £550 without the brake conversion parts!
  9. I'll go to £550 without the brake conversion parts!
  10. Hi I'm in Kent and have a Lupo TDi sport for sale! Will let it go for £650 including the parts for a rear disc conversion! This is the write up on eBay... VW Lupo 1.4TDi £30 tax This has been my daily commute for the past two years and has not missed a beat! Regrettably selling to go down to one car. It is 15 years old so is not perfect cosmetically but runs and drives superbly! Ok so I thought I'd add an overview of the good and bad bits to the best of my knowledge so you know what you are getting! I have been as honest and thorough as I can but may have missed something good or bad. The best way to ensure you are happy with it is to come and VIEW BEFORE YOU BUY! BAD POINTS: Exhaust Rear box is missing ( I had intended on building a full custom exhaust so I didn't replace it although it isn't noticeably louder and doesn't cause any running issues). There is a burn mark just above the drivers side seat pull. No handle on drivers side seat pull! I have a new one but it doesn't stay on. I think the metal bit it clips onto has snapped! There is staining on the seats and on the head lining. The plastic surround on the rear seatbelt buckle has come apart. The wheel arches would benefit being rolled (tyres don't rub unless the car pile drives at speed). You would need to do this if you intend on lowering it more anyway. Cosmetically there are some dents on the wings and on the rear bumper and a ripple on each side of the roof. (These were all present when I got the car and I have no idea how the roof was dented?). There is some rust on the inside of the arches and below the boot handle (the roof is not rusty! A relatively common area to go on the Lupo). There are scratches as to be expected on an old car. One of the fog lamps is cracked and the other seems unusually recessed in the hole. The air conditioning system has a leak somewhere. The passenger side window does not go down. (Another common problem with all VWs of this era). GOOD POINTS: It is an air conditioning equipped Lupo (though not currently working, see above). Spare oil filter and oil included for next service. Pioneer CD player. Alarm beep on arming/ disarming enabled through vagcom. Door auto lock enabled through vagcom (doors lock when you start driving). R32 front wishbone bushes with adapter washers. Front geometry set to 1.5* negative camber, 15 minutes toe in on each wheel (although this may be incorrect by now as was done about a year ago). 5 x 15" Renault 19 steel wheels with custom made spigot spacers (8mm) and matching spare all with uniroyal rainsport 3 tyres (passenger front is brand new, drivers side has about 7mm tread, two rears are around 4/5mm but slightly lower on inside edge (the cost of running negative camber lol) the spare currently has a puncture which should be repairable! Genuine VW G60 centre caps. Coilover suspension. I replaced the bump stops at the same time. Rear window detachable sun screen. Timing belt and waterpump was done at about 148k. Last service at 162k. Currently on around 167k. MOT'd until Feb 2017. Remapped from 75 to 100bhp including EGR delete (Blacksmoke remap makes a remarkable difference to driveability). 280mm Big front brake conversion. I also have all the parts for rear disc conversion including rebuilt and painted calipers (to match the front) and 22mm front ARB (currently 20mm) with droplinks / bushes to suit but this will be available seperately. As listed above there are things that need sorting out but overall A FANTASTIC LITTLE CAR THAT NEEDS TO BE SEEN Located in Ramsgate Sold as seen. Viewings welcome. Good price for quick sale.

  12. Title: Rear Disc Conversion Parts Description: I have collected the parts ready to do a rear disc conversion on a Lupo but have not put them on and I am now selling the car so these are for sale! Some parts are new and some second hand. The calipers have been refurbished and painted red and I intended to put the return springs (from a Sharon I think) on them for those 'on the bar moments' (quoted from the site where I got the info for doing the conversion!). Shame really they would have been nice on my 1.4 TDi with 280mm front brakes and matching calipers! I also have a 22mm front ARB and bushes from a GTi for sale. Needs cleaning / coating! Location: Kent Price: Brake Parts:- £120 (cost more then that to gather all the parts but need it gone) ARB:- £30
