  1. I’ve had just the 1 alternator refurbed but mine is not covering much mileage. Just under 42k now. 😀
  2. I think that’s one of the main reasons for me not selling mine. I think I would end up regretting it. Then end up buying again
  3. How many of you have owned your Lupo over 10 years now, and still have no plans to sell it? Ive owned my Raven Blue GTI for 13 years this year. Rarely gets used due to being on the small side for the family 😂 but can’t bring myself to sell it. It goes for its MOT every year and I service it myself and then tucked away in a carpeted garage. Think it’s only seen rain 3 or 4 times in my ownership, I know that’s a bit of a waste and it’s made to be driven etc. I will try my best to get some driving time in this summer (hopefully)
  4. Can anyone get me the part numbers for the bolts that hold this bracket and the one under it.
  5. Might end up ordering one of these. It’s not the easiest thing to clean up.
  6. Bigger than I thought it would be. Going to need to replace the bolts at the same time. Anyone have any ideas on where to get anodised or better quality bolts than the standard ones, I have lots of bolts and nuts which I want to replace now 😂
  7. Anyone have any ideas if this part is still available to purchase. Sits on top of NS engine mount holding the main fuse. The paint on mine is flaking off due to being rusty. If it’s difficult to get hold off I will start stripping back for a respray. Cheers
  8. I've ordered the resistor only. Have you got a pic of the control panel. Guessing they are all the same. What do you want for the control panel? Just noticed you have a Golf R too
  9. Not sure the best way to check this, can see voltage at the switch. But all looks good and new. Can see it making contact when turned etc. Might order a new switch to go with the new resistor I've ordered.
  10. Checked the fuse related to the fan which is 49 I believe. This seems ok and I even tried a different one with no luck. Could there be a different fuse? Checked a few combinations to see if power was at the resistor but couldn't get a reading. Cant think what else to check.
  11. Need some advise. Car went in for a cambelt change and brake fluid service and got it back with the fan no longer working. I have searched and found a lot of people have mentioned theirs have broke before on setting 1-3 and works on 4 max. Mine isn't working on any setting. Today I have dismantled the dash and checked everything is plugged in fully behind the switch, fan and heater resistor. The fuse is ok. To rule out the fan I connected it up to a battery and it spins perfectly. Would the resistor stop the fan working completely as people have mentioned it still worked on setting 4 when theirs needed replacing. Any advice on what else to check please?
  12. Must be one of the best around now. 17k and original. I have all the original parts for mine so might return it to original spec, there is something more appealing when seeing one that looks like it has just left the showroom in original form. Guess it is the age of them that is making them more desirable now as standard.
  13. How many GTI owners have no modifications at all, original spec? Now the Lupo is getting older the demand is starting to shift towards genuine untouched ones and even though mine has only sensible mods like coil overs, alloys & exhaust it's still nice to see one that is completely original so now thinking about reverting back to oem spec. Anyone else gone back to original spec?
