  1. And...it's now mine Will stick a post in the 'new owners' section when I get a minute, here's a photo as it stands for the meantime: The car is currently filthy and it's too cold to clean it, as per the plates I'm living in Austria and it gets a bit nippy here over the winter. First things first, I'd like to download elsawin to gain access to the Lupo GTI workshop instructions. Can anyone recommend a trustworthy site to buy it from?
