  1. Haha no way Rich, you are 4 years younger than me and we share a birthday!
  2. OE cat is obsolete from VW and nobody makes an aftermarket one unless you go for a performance one. OE part number was 6E0 253 208 EX
  3. Tungsten Silver, quite a dark silver but suits the GTI
  4. I think it's 75w90 gearbox oil
  5. GTI doesn't have a MAF or EGR so I'd be checking both the throttle body and the MAP sensor which is located on the cambelt side of the inlet manifold
  6. Number 20 is 020 301 132 Number 21 is 085 301 115 A
  7. VW list the gearbox oil as part number G 060 726 A2 which is the same as normal 085 gearbox oil. If you PM me a chassis number, I can check the quantity for you
  8. It's not metal, its a sort of fibreglass construction, not massively heavy but an awkward size to post
  9. How much for those spotty seats? And do you have a gearknob and the boot?
  10. The plastic cover on the inside of the boot that covers the screws is 6H0 945 289 A, it doesn't list it for a gti but it is definitely the right part, I had mine replaced when my car was under warranty as the tech broke it when they changed my spoiler. The part this slides on to is 6H0 945 159 A
  11. 235/700R 450? Is that a tyre for a cruise ship? VW do not use PAX tyres, Audi dabbled with them for a few years but don't use them anymore. The closest VW come to PAX is the Contiseal, Hankook Seal or Pirelli Seal inside tyres on Passat, Sharan and Scirocco. The Up GTI is fitted with 195/40 R17 81V Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyres, a lot of owners on the Up Owners Club don't like them, I've never had an issue personally.
  12. It doesn't have run flat tyres, no VW runs run flat tyres, they do use Seal inside tyres on some models, but not on the up, would make it too heavy! You also said in an earlier post that the City Emergency Breaking system means the passenger airbag is deactivated, that's wrong, it has a key-operated switch that you can turn the airbag on or off, not permanently off as suggested. I have a 2019 Up GTI in Tornado Red with a black roof, Beats sound system, cruise and park pack, reverse camera and climate, all worthwhile additions to what is already a fun little car. It also has quite a few tweaks available to increase performance, I'm hoping to remap mine soon to around 145bhp and add an induction kit, so may see 150 on a good day with the right outside temperature!
  13. Same as Polo GTI though OE numbers n/s - 6N0 615 423 A (superseded from 6N0 615 423 b) o/s - 6N0 615 424 A (superseded from 6N0 615 424 b) They retail at £198.72 each inc vat. If you buy from VW though, they are not painted red anymore, just silver.
  14. Looks great! I wouldn't change anything except maybe re-install the rear wiper
