  1. No gasket on these, its a sealant, VW part number D 188 003 A1. Stupidly expensive at £88.80 inc vat, I'm sure someone will say there is a cheaper alternative though....
  2. Is there a way of switching off the annoying advertising pop-up that slides up and down at the bottom of the screen everytime you change threads?
  3. This one is Y3D Tornado Red Built 15-3-2005
  4. Fair enough mate! GLWS!
  5. I'd happily buy the xenons and the teddy bear f you're willing to split? Never realised you were so close to my work (Epsom!)
  6. Welcome to the site! Nice Lupo, will be good to see a build thread!
  7. I love this car, just seems to get better and better! Great pictures!
  8. O/S cover is obsolete from VW now, but can be ordered through VW Heritage parts 6E0 853 666 F GRU VW UK still have stock of the N/S but once they are gone they will be obsolete too 6E0 857 665 F GRU Retail they are £14.88 inc vat
  9. Wish I had £2k spare.....
  10. It's a 1.4 16v FSI engine, engine code ARR. VW did do a 1.4 FSI in the MK5 golf as well, but most are 1.6 FSI
  11. VW UK warehouse has 1 left in stock, but I think it's about to become obsolete as VW Germany aren't showing any in their stock. As said before, the part number is 6N2 721 403 for a RHD model
  12. Nope, in Germany they sold the FSI model, basically a petrol version of the 3L They did sell the Fox in South America badged as the Lupo for a while though....
  13. VW did use the FSI engine in the Lupo, just it's a model that never came to the UK market.
  14. This is from the ACEA website, scroll through and you'll see VW/Seat/Skoda https://www.acea.be/uploads/publications/ACEA_E10_compatibility.pdf
  15. All Lupo's bar the 1.4 FSI are compatible with E10 fuel. E10 is only replacing normal 95 ron unleaded fuel, 98/99 ron will still be E5 rated (due to it being more expensive in the 1st place!)
  16. Been a GTI owner since September 2004, not parting with mine either!
  17. I'm sure you could swap the Lupo inners with the Polo's?
  18. 9N3 GTI's use a Mk5 Golf lamp which is a different design
  19. 9N3 Polo high level brake light is about as close as I can see via VW, may need modding to fit but could be a possibility
  20. The engine is unique in that the block is different to a Polo GTI AVY engine, they have similarities as in the head is the same, VVC on the exhaust side, twin cambelt system, but the block is a different part number, hence the Lupo gearbox doesn't fit. The Lupo block only fits the Lupo, even the sump is different on the Polo. The gearbox is also unique to the Lupo, though it's a close relative of one used on a Touran iirc, and the Up GTI uses a newer version of the 02U 6 speed Lupo gearbox, even down to some of the internals being the same, though it's designated an 0DQ gearbox in the Up.
  21. What Rich said, you're there, get the rings done and save potentially having to strip down the engine again 036 198 151 C x4 - £61.85 inc vat each from VW, though VW UK are only showing x2 kits in stock, not sure on stock where you are based.
  22. When I swapped over my front wings, it looked like I'd pulled a ploughed field out of mine from there!
