  5. Already answered! - That is Rich for: "Do you need a Gti anti-roll bar?"
  6. VW probably said that just to cover themselves. 91/95 is the octane rating for the fuel suitable for your engine - 91 is the plain vanilla cheap unleaded & 95 is high octane more expensive unleaded. Interesting reading - I don't think I would like to be in Brazil just know... - You should check out Jamie Orr's one week Saveiro build in Brazil on you tube - really mad water cooled stuff going on over there, all pretty much 8V with very big turbo's Have to say I got a bit excited hearing a higher grade of ethanol fuel will be widespread...that is until I read up on how little ethenol was going in. I can dimly recall E85 being available at Morrisons, but at the time I didn't have a decent car and like 99.867% of the population I wasn't clued up on what it was... wonder why it failed to take off! Ethanol is the darling for tuners overseas, volumetrically it needs a lot more than petrol meaning bigger fuel pumps and injectors - but burns better and the shear amount of fuel they have to dump in cools the cylinders - really helpful in turbo cars I have seen a TSI engined polo in a scrap yard - bonnet up, engine looks cover off, at a glance it looks just like a normal small block 16v - until you see the massive cast alloy growth on the cam box above the intake where the high pressure fuel pump lives. It definitely is a: once you see it you cant un-see it things!
  7. 1% reduction in fuel economy.... considering most of the fuel price is tax - its good news for the treasury! https://check-vehicle-compatibility-e10-petrol.service.gov.uk/manufacturer/Volkswagen Only one model of Lupo not suitable: Lupo – 1.4 litre (77kW) FSI made from August 200 to November 2003
  8. Use the Golf box lots of build threads out there After fabrication, wiring is the most challenging

    you can get a lot of Ikea Meatballs in a Lupo.... its just the jam and sauce that is problematic
  10. Looking really good. Those Nangkang's have a lot of meat in the sidewall! - how are they grip wise in the wet? any rubbing? BTW Front inner ARB bushes are tricky to do on the car - if you are getting them done upgrade to polybushes
  11. Looks really good! 70000 km is about 48000 miles here in the UK - majority of cars here are over 100k miles
  12. Stop using the new parts! What is stopping re-assembling the old parts?
  13. unless I am missing something - the old spring looks ok just assemble the old stuff
  14. Has the plastic part come unclipped from the metal base? - Seem to recall a similar problem when I was having my clutch saga. With cable ties you can crush the spring down small enough to clip the plastic back in and re-assemble: Once its back in place behind the pedal - cut the cable ties off
  15. Suspect VW has all the assembly lines set up with the same underpinnings or able to accept a VW standard so they can swap out everything out without excessive downtime. all the need to do is change out the parts bins and train the workers. Nowt wrong with Brussels - quite partial to a bit of Moule et Frites - with lashings of mayo
