  1. Might be in the For Sale section soon for spares Keep an eye out. lol
  2. Not sure. Struggled carting my 3 kids around in the Loop. So thinking about a Bora.
  3. Coming round a left hand bend coming out of Congleton last night and lost control on wet road. Ended up spinning 180 degrees and colliding with a 4x4
  4. Had a bit of a bump last night. Everyone is ok thankfully.

  7. Mine does the same thing. Will need the throttle body cleaning out and maybe the coolant temp sensor replacing. As for a manual, not sure if Haynes ever did one cos I can never find one!
  8. Bought some Auto Glym Tar Remover and that did the trick! Also today, got the car lowered 60mm/40mm F/R on lowering springs, looks so much better. And I started clay barring the car, what awesome stuff!! The bonnet after clay bar, but not polished yet.
  9. Got told about using petrol off a friend tonight funnily enough. Tried the hair drier, did ****** all style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> Need to get it off quick, due to clay bar it on Thurs, to get polished on Fri or Sat. Not sure why I'm going to so much trouble, cos it's bound to look crap next to all the other Lupo's. It's going in to get lowered on Thurs morning, but desperately need some new rims, the original ones have been heavily kerbed. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />
  10. Think I'll try this method. Thought of using a hot power washer, but don't know what effect that might have on the paintwork after what one did to my old red Scirocco. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> Thanks for all your suggestions Hope to meet some of you on Sunday.
  11. Similar to MartyP's post but when I took the rear drivers side strip off, I realised it was stuck on with what seems like Silicone and I can't for the life of me get the damn stuff off. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry2:" border="0" alt="angry.gif" /> Want to get it off ready for the VW Festival, anyone know a way of getting it off without damaging the paintwork?? style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":confused:" border="0" alt="confused.gif" /> Many thanks Rob (will try and get a pic posted)
  12. Funny I should stumble across this thread as I'm thinking of having my Lupo's brake fluid changed. TBH, Lupo brakes are ****, so I recently changed my front brakes to Tar-ox drilled and grooved discs and Mintex Extreme pads. Initially I found them to be a lot better but I'm not experiencing the big 'bite' difference I thought there'd be and there's still a lot of fade. So next in line is either fluid change or braided hoses and fluid. Does anyone know where I can get a braided hose set for a 1.4S? Cheers, Rob.
  13. Can't camp now due to family commitments on the Saturday, but I'll be coming down early Sunday morning, so leave room for me on the stand style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
  14. Can't do Wed now due to other commitments. But we could have a Lupo only run out on Thurs, same time, same place. Hope plenty can make it style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
