    Bonnet release

    Thanks for the information guys. So in essence, all that would need to be replaced would be the lever in the middle of that image? As that's the only piece that's broken. As the rest of the mechanism works fine.

    Rear windscreen seal

    That's a good point, my spoiler isn't in great nic, it's bubbled pretty bad... and the break light is swimming. I'll have to take a better look now everything is dry.

    Bonnet release

    A how to on this would be great! The little black pin thing has snapped, which I didn't realise till I bought a new lever.

    Rear windscreen seal

    I'll take a look into that then, cheers!

    Rear windscreen seal

    Could do with testing things by opening the boot and holding it horizontal while pouring water onto different areas and see if anything comes through. As yesterday there was just water drops all over the place. I'll take a look again after work later and see if I can see anything on the seal now that it should be dry, but I'm pretty sure it seamed fine.

    Bonnet release

    Anyone know how difficult it would be to replace the mechanism for the bonnet release on a Lupo GTi. Specifically, the interior section? Part of mine broke and has worn down so a new lever still doesn't work. Kinda annoying when you need a pair of pliers or mole grips whenever you need to pop the bonnet!

    Rear windscreen seal

    Anyone had any issues with the rear windscreen seal leaking? Was washing my car yesterday, and when I was drying it off and there was water over one side of the parcel shelf. Opened the boot and checked the boot seal, but this seemed fine. No splits or perishing, so all I can assume is the window seal itself! Anyone know how much this would cost? Or if there are any easier ways to deal with this?

    Lightened Flywheel + Clutch

    Just been reading through a few forums, and a few people have said that when the revs are low it can be a little more annoying to drive as the revs drop quicker and they have to keep tapping the throttle to keep the revs up. Has this been a issue you've noticed? Following on from the above, this is the reason people notice a drop in fuel economy as they have to keep the revs up. Interesting, thought that because you could climb and fall through the revs quicker you'd see some form on gain on performance be it acceleration or deceleration! All the above is definitely something to keep in mind! I'm far from an expert on this, so if you have anything else to add please do so!

    Lightened Flywheel + Clutch

    Few little questions Has anyone fitted a lightened flywheel to a Lupo GTi, if so, any recommendations and does anything else need to be upgraded or changed? Or is it a straight fit? I've seen a couple on eBay, any noticable different between the 3.8KG, and the 2.9KG? This is a daily car so not sure if the lighter one is more for track use. On a similar note, the bite for my clutch has been very low ever since I've owned it. Is this a sign that the clutch is on its way out or is this usual?

    Got me Mats!

    Where did you get the mats from mate? do you have link? I have the same mats, but they have faded and lost all the colour, starting to fray around the edges so a fresh set would be amazing!

    Hello from walsall westmidlands

    Should look nice by the time you get all that sorted! Engine swap will be a big job though... Rather you than me! ? I've just followed you mate ?

    Hello from walsall westmidlands

    @Westmidz_lupothey do indeed, was looking at fiesta st at the same time but the fact that the lipo GTi doesn't really drop in price swayed my decision. Unfortunate that your having to downgrade from an Impreza to a lupo, but one day you'll get back to those performance highs! Currently my plans are just getting it in better condition, spoiler needs repairing and a new centre brake light, got a leaky passenger door seal that needs sorting but I can't see where it's coming in! Wheels are being repainted in red within the next few weeks... But other than that it's pretty steady! Exhaust & coilovers were done a few months ago so I'm still recovering financially from that currently ? you got any plans with yours?

    Hello from walsall westmidlands

    Cheers mate, still a few little bit and bobs to do on it, but I'm pretty happy with it currently ?
