  1. I will have one if you go ahead with them
  2. This was a Volkswagen UK press fleet car, it was featured in Volkswagen Driver Magazine in November 2002 I think.
  3. I know my dealer had trouble obtaining painted brake callipers last year. I spoke to Volkswagen Customer Service and they said they supply unpainted ones now. Luckily the painted ones are available outside of the main dealer network.
  4. Is it this badge or the red and black one from the earlier SE?
  5. It was last MOT'd on November 7 2014 with 130,125miles on the clock. That MOT expired in 2015 and it was not tested after that. I checked the DVLA vehicle detail site but they could not find the car. I checked further and found that J7UPO is now attached to a 2003 SEAT Arosa (formally HX53HBK).

    Lupo GTI

    The 1.0e got traded in against the Sport. The salesman was only interested in the spec and the condition and didn't bother with a test drive. The dealer that took it had serviced it from new. They were pretty dreadful but being new to driving I didn't know much better, new brake pads every 20000miles that sort of thing. I didn't feel too bad as I had asked them about the whining gearbox and they dismissed it as normal. After they'd bought it they found the gearbox had cracked. A few years after I sold it I spotted it for sale on auto trader sporting a bright orange gear lever gaitor.

    Lupo GTI

    I have been a member on here for a while but as I don't modify my car I never started a thread showing my car. I have owned a Lupo since I started driving in the year 2000. My first car was a Jazz Blue 1.0e which I had fitted with ABS, Front Fog Lights, Electric Windows Central Locking and a CD Player. The car was delivered in April 2000. I do not have many pictures for reasons that will be clearer later. A year after I took delivery of my Lupo my brother passed his driving test and after testing several cars decided that he too wanted a Lupo. However he had to out do me so he order a T
  9. TDI was only available in Sport trim so it should have front fog lamps.
  10. Spotted around 1430 southbound M42 jct 4
  11. I am not sure if the earlier ones had the side airbags. I think (although happy to be corrected) that they were added at the facelift. The Arosa had things like remote locking that the Lupo Sport only featured as an option
  12. When the Lupo was tested by EuroNCAP Volkswagen had two cars tested for side impact. One was fitted with the side airbags, the other with out. The differences were very noticeable. http://www.euroncap.com/tests/vw_lupo_2000/27.aspx
  13. You could check on this government site: https://www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk/EvlPortalApp/app/enquiry?execution=e1s1 You will need the registration number
  14. My last Lupo started doing this I asked the dealer and an upholsterer about a solution. Both came up with very similar answers. Apparently it is the sponge (foam or whatever the correct term is) over the years it gets worn and the fabric sinks in to it. The upholster's suggestion was to replace the foam or as a short term fix to strip the seat base and add more padding to fill the dent out. The dealer said replace the seat base foam.
