  1. Does anyone perhaps know what this is for? been in the car since I bought it.
  2. I reckon I'll go with that, gloss back on the back of the seat, and maybe because the interior is currently grey, make the rest of the seat grey with that "studded" material (best way I can describe it. Not sure if i'll regret that decision 🤣
  3. Hey gents, So i decided to part with the VW UP seats and rather go for a pair of SEAT Leon mk2 Cupra seats. Being a huge SEAT fan I though this would make an great upgrade to my lupo. So here is the passenger seat: https://imgur.com/cApCx2u I have about 5 metres of the GTI Tartan stashed away in my garage: https://imgur.com/K2FAjWK So this was my poor attempt at a paint edit of what I was thinking for the seats (minus the cupra logo) https://imgur.com/EooXCm6 Thoughts?
  4. seeing this thread was revived... How do you guys get so low without your driveshafts knocking?? C Notch? I had to raise my car after this due to knocking:
  5. Collected my seats today...
  6. This is why you have such a high rep, absolute legend. I am asking guys on the VW Club SA Forum if anyone has the specs on their Velocity wheels, had no idea they had a different width. £24.34 a Centre Cap??????!!!
  7. Citi Golf Velocity Wheel vs Bathurst Wheel
  8. So I want to start getting my little half loaf ready for some comps. So I want to start investing a bit of time and money into her. So the plan: UP Seats - Hopefully will have picked them up today Then to get the whole interior reupholstered with GTI material I picked up last year. But my biggest issue is Wheels. The Porsche wheels I was running 2 years ago gave me massive headaches which I think was due to poor engineering on the Adapters. so i flogged them and now still sitting with the OEM Bathurst wheels. As far as I am aware, I am the only person who has these wheels in the country, although there is basically the same wheel available that came on a Citi Golf Velocity. with the only difference really is the notch for the Centre cap and the Centre cap it self has more holes. so practically the same. I can not find a decent set of wheels I like for the car so I am thinking of possibly getting my current wheels modified somehow to a wow factor. Does anyone have any ideas???
  9. Thanks bud! 💪
  10. This forum is just amazing! thanks so much Bud, exactly what I wanted to see!
  11. I have the standard 1.4TDI Lupo, plain Jane Interior, So I'm pretty sure the UP seats will still be an upgrade for me.
  12. Those are absolutely stunning. Pity no pictures of brackets. I am getting the 2 Front seats for R2500 (£137).
  13. The Lupo was never sold in SA. My black lupo currently was originally from the UK that was brought over by the owner when she moved to SA. any others rolling around are either from neighboring countries (Which are usually Japanese imports like the one I sold) or they were brought over by the owner like my current one. it's extremely difficult to import cars into South Africa, I am still investigating how to do it as my Dream car is a Lupo GTI, if my calculations are correct it'll cost me between R200k - 300k to get one here. (converted is about £11k - 16.5k)
  14. Thanks a lot bud, problem i see though is, You have to have the rails, I'm praying the UP does not have rails like the lupo as they are welded directly to the floor pan, guess i'll find out tomorrow when I go see the seats.
