    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?

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

    Hello from walsall westmidlands

    @Westmidz_lupo I'm only just down the road in Armitage, just past Lichfield ?
  9. Wondering if anyone else has any experience with swapping out the original Lupo steering wheel with a golf one. Is it as simple as taking the current one off, and putting a golf one on? Or are there any hacks that need to be in place for this to be feasible? Any information will be helpful!!

    Problems starting - When Warm?

    @Rich @mk2 Hi guys, I was talking to a guy over the weekend and he said he had the same problem I'm having but with a 2003 Bora. He said that the error light was coming up and he replaced the sensor multiple times, until he realized there were 2 of the same sensor. One near the radiator and one at the back of the engine. Do you think this could be the same case with my Lupo?

    Problems starting - When Warm?

    Thanks guys Will update you when I get this fitted
  12. Anyone got any ideas why my Lupo GTi doesn't always start when the engine is warm? I've taken this to a couple of garages now, but non of them have even been able to replicate the fault, let alone fix it! An example I give them is I leave my house, and go to the petrol station (10 minute drive) ignition off, key out, leave it a couple of minutes while I fill up, go to start it again then it wont start (see attached video and try to ignore the beeping). After leaving the ignition off for 5-10 minutes then try and start the car, it'll work. The check engine light is on, the fault is apparently the engine temp sensor. However this has been replaced with an OEM part and all wiring has been check with nothing unusual to show. Any suggestions would be appreciated! 20180206_171553.mp4

    Bilstein Lowering Suspension Lupo GTi

    After the auction had been listed, I was unable to add delivery as an option (hence the difficulty). As there was already a bid on the auction, it would've been unfair on them to have lost, and bad rating on eBay isn't what I want.

    Postage is at sellers discretion I'm aware of the eBay fees It's up for bid, that's how I wish to sell them... If you're interested, then place a bid, if not that's you're choice
