    EDM, very clever how they get them so accurate though.

    I kept forgetting to do this, but my 1999 lupo 1.4s dash on key on. (handbrake is off)

    At least it is removable.

    Lupo GTI

    They all seem to be down in Kent / Essex for some reason, 3 for sale down that way for reasonable money.

    Would TDi stuff fit in the 085 bell housing? from a brief look at pics of SDI flywheel it looks same mounting and if diameter is same then good to go probably. Depending on clutch clearance. Lupo TDI Flywheel is offset balanced for the 3 pot engine so you would get some vibration if you used one and is 220mm clutch, G60 is 228mm.

    Danno is absolutely right, there are no rules you do as you like. If the rusty painted Lupo floats your boat then go for it. But you did ask for some ideas. Rummage around on the rat forum for inspiration. I saw that Imp years back and loved it.

    Rusty painted lupo (including the plastics): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VOLKSWAGEN-LUPO-1-4-DIESEL-DIRTY-DIESEL-RAT-ROD-SHOW-CAR-PROMOTE-YOUR-BUISNESS/223440707825 He is delusional about its value. This is how not to do it.

    It really grinds my gears when people do this to a car in nice condition too, find a shed and do it to that, you have the best possible start then and dont waste / ruin a nice one. My black TDI is a great candidate.

    http://rat-look.com/forum/index.php I'd avoid the rusty paint as it looks crap and is old hat now, there no quicker way apart from a large hammer and fire to decrease the value of the car. Not seen many rat lupos done well tbh and the base colour will have a big factor in it. Most over do it with that bloody rusty paint. Low, real or forced patina, motorsport wheels is a good start. Take inspiration from this imp: http://rat-look.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=8816

    Noice! What you doing for the VNT? You remapping the SDI ECU or swapped it for something else?

    Wheels will these fit

    Depends how low you are and what tyres are on them. 195 50 15 fronts rubbed on hard cornering or rears rubbed with weight in the back on mine with similar offset.

    No Check Engine Light

    Might be a bit late for an appeal as he has had it in bits since then, but yes you should have appealed it on that failure.

    New here, just recently bought a lupo 1.4 sport

    The bottom weld on nut had come off so was tightened up with a spanner holding it instead. That meant that all the load was taken by the top threaded part (that has now broken) as the bottom nut was able to move about under load. (if that made sense?).

    You asked about this before:

    Early lupos didnt have them. What year is yours?

    Clunky is probably the check strap, you can get some bronze bushings to fix them or else get new straps. Stick some grease and lube along the strap and see if it shuts it up and look for play at the bush end. Mine though has now broken on the door pillar when the wind took it a week or so back.😒

    Lupo Sport

    I wouldnt worry about mileage either as long as it has history and maintenance and the right price. Your budget is 2k, get a GTI. If your budget is 1k get a Sport. I'm biased pretty heavily but tbh get a nice breathed on TDI instead. (£30 tax, faster than a Sport, stronger gearbox, stronger pedal box etc etc).

    Wheel Width and ET

    www.willtheyfit.com Bung in standard wheel tyre size (not sure what 13s would be 175 65 13 maybe, but standard tyres for 14s are 185 55 14). Negative or zero offset means they stick out quite a bit, so you would need silly stretch and low profile tyres and that will mess up your gearing, handling and ride. You will almost certainly need the arches rolling as well if you want to run sensible tyres.

    VW Lupo 1.4 TDi Silver

    I meant to include the link but forgot, found that info here: http://www.crypton.co.za/Tto know/diesel_exhaust_emission_smoke_meter.html Yes light seems to be the method. Err let's just say i had an esoteric mix in mine for the MOT shall we....

    VW Lupo 1.4 TDi Silver

    Not sure, cant find anything definite about what 3.0M-1 means, but it is smoke opacity and particulate matter and it might just be a that the m-1 part just means per meter.so xxxppm per meter? but that doesnt make much sense either as it would be per M3 OK found it: Smoke Density (Km-1) - (also known as “Light Extinction Coefficient” and “Light Absorption Coefficient”) A fundamental means of quantifying the ability of a smoke plume or smoke containing gas sample to obscure light. By convention, smoke density is expressed on a per meter basis (m-1). The smoke density is a function of the number of smoke particles per unit gas volume, the size distribution of the smoke particles, and the light absorption and scattering properties of the particles. In the absence of blue or white smoke, the size distribution and the light absorption/scattering properties are similar for all diesel exhaust gas samples and the smoke density is primarily a function of the smoke particle density.

    VW Lupo 1.4 TDi Silver

    Spec plate is 0.8 on tdi. i blanked it off so they tested it to higher value as i just couldnt be arsed with having it struggle. Passed at 0.93 probably because he didnt have to rev the nuts off it several times to get it to pass.

    VW Lupo 1.4 TDi Silver

    Without the MOT you are selling to a very small % of the car buying public. It's probably £500 without, £750 with. The emissions stuff just cover / deface the number on the spec plate on the bulkhead and they have to test it at the higher value.

    1.4 tdi sport which exhaust system?

    TDI exhaust is basically hidden and tucked up behind bumper aiming down at the floor, unless you want to chop holes and have a straight tail pipe poking out it wont really be visible.

    Throttle problem

    I was thinking of the vacuum side of things tbh, but pedal with long travel sounds like hydraulics so a separate issue.
