  1. When I passed I had my 1.0 Lupo on my policy. When it came up to renewal (passed in March 2020), my renewal was in June 2020, since they just upgraded my learners insurance to keep my no claims. In the May 2020, I bought my GTi and it was nearly what I was paying for my Lupo (£475) to (£750) and all mods are declared. So I imagine it won't be too much.
  2. Thought I'd update the post a little bit! I had a serious water leak during all of the heavy downfall, meaning the boot was flooded with water, as well as the passenger footwell. This was down to the wing mirror foam failing as the tint company who put my wind deflectors on, put them in the wrong place allowing it to pierce the foam making it worse. To top that off, the membrane behind the lower door card was ripped after previous owners install of speakers so new membrane was ordered and black silicone sealant was used inside the wing mirror. For the boot, it turned out to be the wiring
  3. Yeah pop-outs were fitted by previous owner, but then I got them tinted 15% as well as rear window as I don't like the feeling of having no tint and everyone looking into the car...
  4. Appreciate it! That was only a few weeks into ownership and I have no idea what road that is as it was kinda an exploring adventure, so I'll have to try and find it again!
  5. Apologies for late reply, however, my parents have a ring CCTV camera installed which shines directly onto my car with a built in motion detector so we'd know if anyone is near any of our cars
  6. Decided to upload some more pictures of the Lupo! Couple pictures are when it was in paint and prepped by my painter and then being detailed by myself. The picture where it has the stripe was one of the first pictures I took, only had the car for a number of days at that point so went out exploring the countryside getting to know the car a little bit along the way. Uploaded a couple pictures of the seats to see how it transforms the interior, and they completely do! The normal seats were far too relaxed I thought and they didn't demonstrate what a proper GTI interior should be so they were cha
  7. Ah do you? What's your @? I'll follow you back, and thank you. As far as I'm aware you can't buy these wheels anymore in the size, just a shame I've slightly curbed one parking a bit too close to a high kerb
  8. Thank you! I bought it half modified, had a huge racing stripe, covered stickers and badges and had the same wheels. I much prefer it half track / half show personally which will be the next direction
  9. Yeah the opening rear windows were fitted by the previous owner as I found the old thread on it last night while looking! The mileage is quite high for a little engine, but it gets serviced every 3k miles and inspected for wear, so I suspect should be able to notice anything sooner rather than later. I am looking to get a new clutch in the next few months so that will be fun
  10. Thank you, I've decided it's not going anywhere but currently sits out on the street, might look to put it in a garage soon. Yeah I was pushed by a couple fellow GTi owners to get a 6 speed but after looking around, the 5 looked to be stronger for reliability. The wheels are Schmidt Modernlines 16x7.5J :). Thank you, I suspect like many others, I'll be here for quite some time...
  11. Well, I finally joined the site after saying to myself to do so for months on end. Being a student in computer science but having a deep passion in cars, I thought it would be a good starting point to get a Lupo instead of the usual "boy-racer" cars such as the Fiesta and Corsa. I wanted to know everything about the Lupo world since it was bigger than I thought. Then the idea of owning a Lupo GTi popped into my head one evening while I was learning to drive, and thought as soon as I passed, I'd get one. Anyway, March 2020, I passed my driving test and in May of 2020, I got my very own GTi.
