  1. Hi All, My lupo GTI has been parked up over the winter months, as expected when trying to start it again the battery is flat 😁 I tried a jump pack which failed, I tried jumping it off my golf r32 which failed - radio comes on, central locking works etc etc, just a very slow turnover and not enough to bring her back to life! The battery is a halfords battery and approx 5 years old, the indicator on the battery says 'recharge' however I think I will just go ahead and get a new battery. Is there any recommendation on the best battery for the lupo GTI and also any fitting tips? Does the boot carpet come fully out or just lift up? My local halfords and also the RAC offer a free fitting service but being honest I do not want anyone really touching the car, if anyone is going to break something/get the fitting wrong I would prefer it to be me 😆 Sorry if this seems an obvious thread, just want to ensure I get the battery fitting correct and avoid breaking anything! Thanks for your help

    Lupo GTI Wanted

    Hi All, Been lurking on the forum for a while! Some great advice and info on the Lupo GTi! Am on the lookout for a Lupo gti, strong budget, funds ready for the right Car. Will travel to most of the Uk for the right car. - any colour - 5 or 6 speed is fine - not an import - mileage is not too much of an issue if the car is an honest example with service history. - not significantly modified - mechanically sound and hpi clear email sirmattmclay@hotmail.co.uk I will leave this post up until I have purchased the Car, so please do get in touch! All the best Matt
