  1. They are both powered by the same fuse, along with the camshaft actuator
  2. Usually on these plugs, you push the connector towards the thing you're trying to disconnect it from, push down on the little tab, then pull it away from said sensor. Image shows the plug. Don't use a screwdriver as it will snap off the lug should you ever want to re-connect the plug in the future.
  3. Welcome back to Lupo GTI ownership! I have to disagree about the high level brake light though, the GTI spoiler light is only fitted to a GTI, a non-GTI light is the same though.... Have you got anymore details about the auto-headlight kit you fitted? I have one fitted to my car, but it's not app controlled, that sounds interesting!
  4. You can't get the OE ones from VW anymore, long obsolete, but you could buy a sheet of 3A0 867 201 H which is a similar material to the Lupo one.
  5. I've had the autolocking/unlocking and the alarm chirp switched on my gti for years! Beeps once for lock, twice for unlock. I also have it set to unlock the drivers door on one press and the rest on a 2nd press within 3 secs.
  6. Do you have the correct bulbs in the tail lights? They should be twin filament 380 bulbs and they should only fit in the holder one way, I've loads of cars where people have used the correct bulb but fitted it wrong. The 380 bulb has 2 pins, one is slightly higher than the other so that they fit in the holder in one place. So it could be that someone has fitted a single filament (382) bulb where there should be a twin filament, that can make the car do many odd things!
  7. It's obsolete from VW now but the part number was 6X0 803 550 A and should look like a metal bar as shown in yellow below
  8. There is a Philips head screw on the bottom at the front, not sure if I'd be brave enough to take it apart though! It would look amazing with LED's added to the front and rear lights I reckon.
  9. I guess I'm in a good position to comment on this! I have a Janspeed cat-back exhaust on my Lupo GTI, not the huge tail pipe version either, exhaust note is perfect, not too loud that it gives you a headache, but loud enough you know it's there. The bore is the same as factory so it doesn't damage any of the back pressure you need, the fit was perfect and was worth every penny of the £350 I spent buying it. I also have a 2019 Up GTI in Tornado red, to say it has no character is doing the car a huge discredit. Sure it's no Lupo GTI, but the car has bagfuls of charisma and I'm loving every drive out in her. Handling is fun, performance is more than adequate, and I'm hoping to remap her soon for around 140ish bhp, plus with an induction kit from Forge Motorsport, I'm hoping for 145-150bhp, which is more than enough for a car of it's size. I highly recommend it!
  10. Mines 796 of 1500 if I remember right
  11. I think mine may arrive today! Finger's crossed!
  12. It will need to be turned on with VAGCOM/VCDS
  13. G13 is the current VW coolant for pretty much all VW branded vehicles, part number G 013 A8 JM1 £12.72 inc vat for 1.5 litres And yes, coolant is added via the expansion bottle
  14. It does look a little big to me too. I've been running this badge on mine for years, it's from a MK2 Golf GTI 10th Anniversary Edition, I found it at VW Spring Fest years ago, think it looks great! Might be hard to find now though....
  15. VW502/00 is 5w40 oil for fixed service schedule so I'd stick to that
