In the rows below I will tell you how I felt in love with smallest Volkswagen car- The Lupo.
Back in 2014, when I was 16, my dad bought a Lupo, a cheap little car, with a 2001 YELLOW 1.0 MPi engine for driving around town. It😂 was a easy to work on and quite reliable car. When I've got my driving licence, two years later, at 18, I've started my driving experience behind the wheel of this small city car...and what an experience . For me, a "car guy" it was really easy to drive also, but for some of my friends that learned to drive only diesels that start to move only by depressing the cluch, this small engine needed also a bit of throtle, and they used to stole it for the first times . For driving around town it remains the best choice, but, since we are living in a area full of hills, driving it outside city coud show you that the car can be a bit sluggish.
After half a year or so, the 1.0 was listed on the selling market and I was looking it's replacement. In the evening before Easter, I found another YELLOW Lupo, this time a 2002 1.4 TDi, in better shape and being better equipped (powered windows and mirrors, butterfly rear windows, nicer colour scheme interior, cambridge leather steering wheel and shifter knob, A/C, heated windscreen wipers and projectors :D). The next day we bought it and came back home in two YELLOW "bugs". Everyone who saw us on the road was looking really funny to me and my dad :)) We had them for around 6 mounths, and took them out together almost everyday. After the 1.0 was sold the 1.4TDi remained with our 2002 Mk4 ALH-TDI that we own since 2007.
My dad added to his garage this summer a 2011 Skoda Yeti 4x4 TDi Experience for long journeys. Driving all of these cars, I can say everyone is different in it's own way and think the 1.4TDI suits me the best. It feels quite nippy, compared to our Golf ALH 90HP and even the monster Yeti (Think the last owner remapped it, not verry sure but fells faster compared to other 1.4tdis I drove) and verry easy to park.
TDI is registered as BT(my county) 13-my birth day WOB-obviously City of Volkswagen-Wolfsburg
The 1.0 was random BT 05 ROU-could be From Romania.
Apart from service intervals I haven't touch the car with any modificaton. (oh, forgot that I tinted the windows :)) ). Until today, when Santa came a bit lately, with a fresh set of ATS CUPs 15x7J ET28 wrapped with 195/45 R15 Hankook summer tires.
I've added pictures below with the car and wheels. I will search old photos with the much loved 1.0 that was sold back in February this year.
