Thanks mk2; can't take the credit, this is how the car came to me!
Never really considered a Lupo before, but once settled on a water-cooled VW as my next toy I got set on having one - cool looks, fun handling, reasonable poke (on the 1.4 anyway) all for very little pence indeed!
This one has the full length canvas sunroof thing too (I'm sure it has an official VAG name/model), which the wife likes - just need it to stop raining for a bit now! Took it up to Santa Pod at the weekend for the Camper & Bus show, didn't stop raining long enough to open it. (Bit of sun on the Sunday but was watching the racing then!).
