  1. Thanks Folks That is kind of what I thought. I'm looking at using Bilstein B8's and the GTi ones are quite a bit more expensive, strangely! I know lots of the coilovers are cheaper, but I don't need to run the car lowered as the roads round here are fffffked and changing 1.8t sumps is dull. Also I'm unsure of the damping quality till I have spent as much as the Bilsteins!
  2. Hi Folks I keep seeing different part No's etc for Lupo Gti front struts/shock absorbers. What's different, and are Gti struts a straight swap with other Lupo struts? Cheers
  3. Ok, thanks. I'll keep looking but grab a 14 anyway!
  4. Hi Folks I have G60 brakes on my Lupo, so need 15" wheels. Does anyone know "and hopefully have" a 15 inch spacesaver wheel? I'm in Sussex! Newbloke!!
  5. Hiya lift off oversteer? Surprisingly well behaved I think, but maybe I drive like a little girl!!
  6. Hi Folks I have always wondered what my Lupo 1.8T weighed, so when I had the chance to run it up on a weighbridge the other day I did. So, it was a stock 1.0 without abs, but now obviously has the 1.8t on board. Stock front seats, no back seats fitted. Std VW suspension, but with VR6 front springs "thanks for the tip Rich" G60 front brakes and wheels, 2.5" stainless exhaust, front mount intercooler. And the answer is 999KG Drag files here to attach, or choose files... Insert other media Uploaded Image
  7. Hi Folks Thanks for that, I think I have them sorted now, will post some pics if I'm still stuck!!
  8. Hi Folks I have read piles of posts on brakes and can't find the answer on this, so it's hopefully easy? I have G60 calipers on my 1.8T Loop, which started life as a 1.0 Loop. It's just failed the MOT on a front flexies. Does anyone know which pipes I need? The current ones look very odd with a very long steel threaded section in the caliper, so I'm sure they are not stock. Cheers Newbloke
  9. Thanks Rich. Does it therefore follow that the MK3 Golf gti will offer one click back in hardness? Also, is the complete strut interchangeable? Cheers Chris
  10. Hi Folks I'm trying to find which Lupo has the hardest standard springs? 1.7SDi I'm thinking because of the heavy diesel?? I want some harder springs for my 1.8T, but I don't want to loose ride height as the 1.8T sump is quite low. Anyone know?? Newbloke!!
  11. Aha, my goof! Thanks. So, OE for a 1.0?? If anything I want to gain ground clearance. I'm guessing a diesel probably has the hardest stock springs?
  12. Hi Folks Ok I'm doing some work on my Mongrel Lupo 1.8T, and I'm just trying to identify some of the parts. Today it's front suspension. I got this lot of the sticker on the strut, any Ideas??? 6NO 4130315 26H2K1 UWA 192A I have typed it into google, but nothing sensible popped up. I've not found a build thread on Y248SDO, so if you have seen one let me know!!!
  13. Well it's already in there and driving. It's got G60 front brakes in there, and did have coilovers on the front, but a previous owner has gone back to stock type setup, maybe GTi, don't know. It seems to handle ok, apart from the lack of power steering, anyone got a PS reservoir? Cheers
  14. My 1.8T is currently living in my Lupo , I think it started life as a 1.0. Anyone got a 2" exhaust. I have a 3" jobbie on there which is a bit low!!! Also any wheels, and a jack? I have No spare I'm in Sussex and happy to pick up.
