    Thanks everyone, we are pleased with the car and she will be used daily, a vehicle like this has to be driven In the valeters today for the interior.
  2. Thanks that’s a good point! We’ve also discovered that it only has the coilovers on the front, is that usual to only do one end?

    Abit of an odd reflection of the house on the bonnet that I didn’t notice when taking photo!

    Thanks, I can’t help but have a big smile on my face when I look at the car and it was a 5 hour drive home after collecting the vehicle so I had lots of time to enjoy the ride, they really are great fun and have plenty of power. I’m going to try and load some pics so hopefully it works, I need to resize them first as they are too large.
  7. Thank you for your replies, much appreciated. The ride is extremely harsh at the moment so would like to replace them sooner rather than wait. We have bilsteins on our T5 but hadn’t managed to find any posts mentioning this brand, it seemed the AP and KW brands were preferred. I will google the bilsteins now
  8. I’ve been searching for posts regarding suspensions but unfortunately any with pictures don’t seem to display themselves for me. We are looking to tackle job ourselves but would REALLY appreciate any help and advice as we are novices! Just purchased a Lupo GTI 2002 6 speed but it has been fitted with a poor set of coilovers and non standard wheels so we are changing them back to factory wheels and wanted to ask are the OEM shocks and springs worth putting back on or is it better to get something else for similar money, bearing in mind just been quoted by local VW garage £636 inc vat for shocks and springs all round. We are after a comfortable ride whilst still offering a reasonable level of handling. Not keen on lowering the vehicle too much if at all. Is it wise to change bushes/mounts etc whilst doing job? This may be an obvious question so apologies but would rather ask than not many thanks

    Thanks Davee but I’m ideally looking for a non project car, but thanks anyway

    Thank you. I’ve been on all of the websites I can think of and have probably come across them but for one reason or another decided they weren’t for me, I am fussy! Davee, do you have any photos and further details you could let me have please? We’re back in Cornwall now but definitely expecting to travel again to get one.

    Hi again, new topic started as I’m now after a GTI instead of a Sport (managed to increase my budget!). If anyone has one for sale please let me know. Based in Cornwall but we’re currently out on the road near Manchester as just looked at one but sadly not right for me. So whilst travelling thought I chance it and post in case anyone has one located in the region of our route home

    Lupo Sport

    Thanks everyone, appreciate the comparison between the two cars, may the GTI search begin!

    Lupo Sport

    Thanks mk2 The gti looks great but may be out of my price range at the moment. Just missed out on a Sport which had 55k and full history for £2k so abit gutted but I’m sure they will come up again if I’m patient!
