    Headlight bulbs

    I have an LED interior bulb in mine (a 265 bulb) and it's dims the same as a normal bulb does The front lights are just 501 bulbs, loads available on the net or even halfrauds, reverse lights are 382 bulbs, again loads on the net

    Fuse 30 Circuit on GTI

    It's hard to see on this crappy ETKA picture, but its on the hose that runs from the airbox to the breather box on the rear of the engine, I believe the plug is roughly in the middle of the hose

    Lupo Sport

    Plus I'd argue that the GTI has a stronger gearbox than the sport so less likely to blow up on you!

    Headlight Ballast

    Yeah Etka used to say they were fitted on both cars but doesn't anymore, only gives those repair kits on the B5 A4, so I'd imagine they would fit the Lupo just fine but can't confirm that

    Headlight Ballast

    The GTI ballast is made by Valeo

    Headlight Ballast

    They don't list it on ETKA as fitting the S4 anymore, they do list a 'repair kit' for either side though which is a bit cheaper. Can't say they are compatible with GTI headlamps or not as I've never seen one in the flesh, part numbers as follows:

    Very costly from VW! 8D0 907 391 A - £552.66 inc vat

    Lupo tdi mpg

    I'd probably go with the theory above but possibly caused by the loom inside the cylinder head, they are prone to breaking down.

    Replacing alternator

    When I did the alternator on my GTI, I had to loosen the 3 engine mount bolts on the top to lower the engine down enough to allow access to the bottom alternator bolt. Was pretty easy once I'd figured that out!

    4Cough's Lupo - SA

    Yeah total bargain! NOT! Some of the Audi centre caps are £40+ so seems quite cheap in comparison!

    4Cough's Lupo - SA

    If I remember correctly the Velocity wheels are 6j wide whereas Bathursts are 6.5j wide. If anyone is interested the Velocity wheels are part number 17S 601 025 E GX9 but are no longer available from VW according to ETKA, and probably never available in the UK anyway! Centre caps for the Velocity wheels are 6Q0 601 149 G GRB which may be an alternative to the Bathurst centre cap? (6E0 601 149 A GRB £24.34 each inc vat) though I have no idea whether they are the same or not!

    Seat Arosa 2003 1.0 - Basic Service + Extras

    Do you know your engine code? I can't look up Seat parts but they'll be the same as a Lupo with that engine code

    Could you not add it all to the Wiki page?

    As Pete said, a GTI grille wont' fit a non-GTI as the bumper is completely different, plus finding a decent GTI grille is difficult as they are long obsolete from VW. There are plenty of mesh-style grilles on ebay and the like that would fit fine though.

    UP! seats in LUPO

    A fair point, they don't have much in the way of side bolsters, but they are surprisingly comfortable. My Up has the 'leather look' seats and they are extremely comfortable, even on long journeys. It would have been nice for VW to have fitted nicer seats in the GTI, but honestly they are ok as they are in most situations.

    UP! seats in LUPO

    The Up seats are bolted in each corner to the floor, so nothing like the Lupo seats at all, in fact I think the Up seats fit like most new VW's and Audi's do now.

    Rich where's the parts you promised me??

    @musho007, can you get hold of any more MD headunits? I'd love one of those too!

    TT Seats "HOW TO"

    I have to admit that when I fitted a TT driver's seat to mine, the brackets supplied were nothing like these, it came with a solid bar that went from side to side on the rear too to support the seat, and that was bolted to the seat runners. I wasn't happy with the TT seats though so I fixed my oe seat by buying a new seat base. I guess the best way to do this properly would be to weld the new seats to an old lupo seat frame, at least then it would move correctly and be fixed securely. I don't have any pictures of the solution the previous owner of the TT seats had made, they are completely buried in my storage container right at the back, it would take me a month to get to them, but if I ever get the chance then I'll grab some pics.

    Mines on 173k so you're getting close!

    UP! seats in LUPO

    They fit totally differently to a Lupo. I have seen it done, I guess it would be similar to fitting mk1 Audi TT seats in a Lupo, I'm sure there's a how-to on here for that
