  1. I used this method: Not forgetting to change your fuel filter at the same time. Did I notice a difference; yes I did 🙂
  2. 6 Years later and very much useful as I will changing my filter today post diesel purge. Great write up and thanks from the future lol
  3. I will get some uploaded
  4. A 3L specialised garage in NL from a recommendation. The garage has a number of 3L and A2 variants. Was really pleased with the service. I spoke to the garage a couple of months previously requesting a spec. Few weeks later they emailed to say they had one in. They also fitted cruise for me which was a bonus. They managed the documents transferring it from NL plates to export plates which included insurance to my home address in the UK > that cost 105 euro.
  5. Thanks Guys 😁 I was able to source a nice blue 3L from the Netherlands. Changed the headlights, fog light bypass from L to R and sourced some new front indicators to compliment the new sparkling headlights. New Oil and a diesel purge is planned for the weekend along with a new diesel filter. Majority of this is preventative and allows me to accurately document to maintenance of the car. I drove it back from the NL, such a great little beast with lots of ooooomph.
  6. Hi Guys, Some good information on the taxing and importation. I am currently in the market for a nice clean 3L with Cruise control, sunroof , (Park assist - Joking) so the information on this thread is beneficial. Looks like I will be making some trips across the water to view/purchase the ideal car, given how scarce they are here in the UK. If anyone has any suggestions or know of one then please hola. Thanks all
  7. Hi Guys and Girls, New member here from Kent (UK). I previously owned a 1.7sdi nicknamed 'Wally' which was a commuter car for bad weather which allowed me to keep the mileage off my weekend car and also saved me from using my motorbike when the weather was grim. Loved the Lupo which had 196,000 miles when I sold it. Fantastic car and it made me grin from ear to ear due to the torque that this little beastie had. Many an Audi would underestimate the speed of this 'badboy' and it made me chuckle as I punched it...... Some years later I find myself looking for another Lupo as I miss 'Wally' but this time I am in the market for a 3L. Really enjoyed my ownership not forgetting the ridiculously cheap running costs and reliability. Have two other cars in my stable and I also enjoy collecting watches and other nostalgic and rare items. Thanks for now :)
