Images of the car are from when I bought it!
I have for sale my Lupo GTI in Reflex silver, I have owned the car since around November 2016 in which time I will be honest and say it hasn't had the usage I thought it would. I purchased the car from a member on here and in the time I have owned it I have covered around about 7-8K miles in it which is why I have taken the decision to sell it. I Always wanted a Lupo GTI since they first came out whilst I was in high school and it was worth every penny - they are great fun to drive but now it is someone else's turn to enjoy it!
Apologies for the photos, these photos are from when I bought it and I hope the previous owner doesn't mind me using them! The car still looks the same as in the photos (I think we all know what a silver GTI looks like by now!) The only difference is I removed the wind deflectors and the GTI badge was also taken off the front grille as it wasn't the original one and I thought it looked better without - I do still have the badge which I can dig out for the new owner.
The bodywork is in good condition - few tiny blister spots on the wing as expected but in general it is very good for a 16 year old car - no dents and the car still has its badges on the boot! Original GTI alloys fitted.
Anyone who checks the MOT will see it had advisories and failures on its last test - It looks a lot at first but I will be honest about the car. It failed due to having 2 screws missing from the headlights which I removed cause they were rusted - they have now been refitted with genuine replacement ones from VW.
The balls joints were worn out so again these were replaced with genuine parts from VW including new lock plates and bolts.
The mirror was damaged so required a new mirror cap and glass these were again ordered genuine from VW and were actually meant to be fitted before the MOT but the technician was unaware.
Other than that they were mainly just advisories - The subframe is in good condition for its age, after 16 years I think you expect parts to be rusty.
Two new springs were fitted due to the OSR snapping so the subframe was already checked prior to MOT.
The brakes have been changed on the front to allow for the G60 bigger brake discs.
This car is 16 Years old it will obviously have wear and tear from over the years - If you need more information then please feel free to get in touch. The car is totally standard and is a really good car for someone to have as either a daily or a project to improve or to restore it even further to showroom condition.
The car doesn't get used much so it does stay on the drive most of the time but the millage will go up slightly whilst it is for sale. I will get more up to date photos once it has been cleaned properly and had a service which will hopefully be next weekend - Just wanted get the car out there early whilst it is cleaned (recently moved house so haven't had time clean it properly yet).
