  1. Didn’t think you could on Bosch ones? I know I could probably get more for it that way but I’m useless at fixing anything 😂 So if there’s anyone who is willing take it as is I would prefer that really.
  2. Not far off! Haha 🤔 In all honesty Im looking for £2350 - I don’t really want to go to the effort of getting an alternator and fitting it just to try and get the money back on selling it so would rather just reduce it to sell.
  3. Unfortunately the Alternator has decided to stop working. Now open to offers!
  4. I’ve sort of been putting off listing it as I really enjoy driving the car - it’s such fun to take out but it’s really not being used enough. Majorly reluctant to put it on eBay - only used it once sell some wheels and it was a nightmare with the guy who bought them! But it seems the quickest way to sell I suppose.
  5. Price reduced to 3000 through here - will be listing it on other sites shortly just haven’t had the time lately!
  6. The car is based in keele village In Newcastle under Lyme mate.
  7. We’ve had it on the ramp at work when we did the springs underneath and due to its age it does have rust/corrosion but the older experienced techs said it was fine just down to its age - I’ll be honest with you though I haven’t seen others to compare it too. I purchased it from a bloke in Preston and he had the car for a very long time so I think it’s spent more time here than in Scotland. He did hand over a massive folder of paper work when I bought it but I never read through it all but there was a lot of information and receipts.
  8. Apologies! I blocked it out because it was the previous owners private plate - The registration it is on now is SC03MJY
  9. Model: 2003 Lupo GTI MOT: 12 Months Engine size: 1.6 Fuel type: Petrol Location: Stoke-on-Trent Millage: 101473 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). Price: £3495 - Open to offers

    Hello People

    i mite do that mate cause the punto they bought it actually quite nice looking it came with a abrath bodykit on (i think that is what its called not to sure) and as nice standard fiat alloys on its a 1.2 active sport. i probably will end up keeping in for a year due to this credit crunch theres hardly any jobs around and i left applying for college abit late so im still looking for a job so it would probably be best keep it until i get a steady cash flow and a years no claims. ill need get the locks removed as they broke in my brothers through the locked and knicked all is sound system and flip up screen stereo .... they broke into my neighbours the same way so that would be 1st on the list. but i definately want a lupo so hopefully within a year i should have a lupo

    Hello People

    Cheers mate me dad likes the lupo so he is in favour of part exchanging the punto in for a lupo, me brothers already had two punto s and he now has a corsa so i want something different from what he has and had. i like the look of the GTI but like you say i probably wont be able insure one (havent seen many for sale either)...... By any chance can you buy a GTI front bumper as i really like the look of the front.
