  1. Hi All! Got a Lupo GTi and going to start sprinting with it, but not quite sure where we'll be mounting the harness. It'll be a 4 point harness, with a bucket seat replacing the drivers seat. If we remove the rear seats, is there anywhere the harness can be mounted or will we need to fit a brace bar across the rear? Also, would anyone know where the best place to mount the remaining 2 points of the harness? Would you need to bolt them to the floor or can they be attached to the seat? Any information regarding fitting a harness would be much appreciated!
  2. Got round to fitting the new lever last weekend, dead easy to do! Unfortunately, the bonnet still doesn't release... Not without pulling the cable directly with a pair of mole grips and a lot of force! Looked at the actual bonnet release mechanism, cleaned it up, lubed it up and it seems to move a lot smoother than before but still doesn't release without a lot of force. If I tried to release the bonnet with the plastic lever and handle it'd easily snap again before opening the bonnet. Indeed the lever was snapped, but I'm thinking now that it snapped because the cable is screwed! it seems to move to some degree, but I'm not sure how much movement there is suppose to be. Any other ideas on what the cable seems to difficult to pull?

Is the fit any good? are they just plug and play, or do you need to rewire a couple of things? Any information would be great!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I'll take a look into that then, cheers!
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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?
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. Selling a set of 15inch 6 spoke alloys and a set of used 195 50 15 tyres. Please follow the below link to view the eBay listing.

  14. 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!
