    Lupo GTI No3

    It’s a popper system. You would need a golf mk5/polo 6r handle welded in for it to be the badge. I had that on my previous lupo, but was a faff to put together. I got a glass man to do a homer for me - things I won’t touch is windscreens, timing belts and paint haha. He charged me £60 for replacing 2 rear screens. One on the lupo and one on the mk5.

    Got the rear window changed over between the lupo bootlids and fitted it too: The new seats arrived for the lupo. I stripped the cloth off the rears ready for retrimming the rears while I am on holiday. The fronts will slot in with no issue, once I have rebuilt them with new bases.

    Here are some pics I took of it earlier in the year with my mk2:

    Small world - you bought my friends mk5 GTI. If I didn't have one already, I would have bought it. My dad bought one new in 2006 in Blue Graphite and its such a nice colour! I hope you enjoy it.

    Lupo GTI No3

    Hello all, its been a while since I have been on here. This is my 4th Lupo and 3rd GTI. Some of my previous threads are here: https://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/100525-greigs-lupo-gti-no2-update-120415/ https://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/81168-anthracite-gti-update-51211/ https://forums.clublupo.co.uk/index.php?/topic/48801-my-lupo-14-16v/&tab=comments#comment-609854 With the RS4 being expensive to run and wanting to keep it for special occasions (i.e I don't want to sell it after 6 months), I thought I would get a run around. Parking down by the fish markets near Aberdeen for work isn't exactly ideal either for spaces and seagulls, so something that was small and not too worried if I got it covered in **** etc was required. I fancied another Lupo GTI, as I felt it fit the bill, and found this one. I bought it from its second owner, the first being from Aberdeen and owning it 14.5 years in Aberdeen. She sold it to her sister in Perth who used it as a daily from March to about August when I got it. I was really lucky to get to meet the original owner on the day I collected it, who had a whole host of stories about the car, and was kind enough to give me GTI badges from her late husbands mk1/2/3s. Spec wise, it has completely basic and standard, with 103k on the clock. The first owner got everything done at a local VW specialist and I have receipts for everything that was done to the car, including its yearly change from summer to winter wheels! On the way home from Perth: The plan is just to run this until I get bored, but for my short commute and economy and the cars history, I am keen to keep onto it for a while. I do plan to do a few things to tidy it up and modify it slightly, all of which will be reversible for sale if required. Fits perfectly in my space at the house: The worst part of the car for rust was the bootlid, with crust around the handle and flaking/bubbling of the paint on the spoiler. I have therefore got a new freshly painted bootlid to go on, that has no handle, repainted spoiler, new spoiler brake light (which is interesting the same as a T5/6 spoiler brake light) and new GTI badge with sharan VW badge: A couple of other bits and bobs done:- Replaced the heater bulb and fitted a bluetooth headunit from the garage (a bit boy racery but does the job): Fitted an auto light retrofit (not photo'd) - its quite cool - it looks like a mk6 switch, but has a cable and sensor attached for the light. This sensitivity can be controlled by an app on your phone. This allows for the 'take me home lights' like on a mk5 onward. Driver side stubby (from Lithuania) and painted at the same time as the bootlid: I also have an interior coming, which I am chuffed with for the price, and a set of Weitec coilers that I had 'in stock' The car also passed its MOT on Saturday with no advisories which was awesome too!
  6. As above. Must be willing to post as based in Aberdeen. Cash waiting
  7. Folks, My lupo sold today and I got a phonecall saying he had tried to close the sunroof (from being tilted up) and it wouldnt close. Typical an issue occurs when the car sells! Does anyone have any suggestions? Supposedly it wont open or close at all - so doesnt seem to be the issue with it closing and fully opening like other sunroof issues people have had. Cheers
  8. It actually sold today. I had the timing belt, water pump and alternator replaced before the sale and it flew through an MOT too

    Sure raceland do one with a manifold too - can buy them from Awesome GTI
  10. I might, I might not. But something japanese is taking my fancy, and I cant justify having this, the quattro and something else! But we will see! And yes it does . Would recommend one to anyone - thanks for making it happen!
  11. It's currently on an old set of FK's I had sitting about. I sold my KW's to fund air, but purely for the fact that I need suspension like that to get up and down my track! However, I am contemplating selling the car already (after 20+ VW's, I think its time for something a little different). So for now it will stay as is, get an MOT and maybe move it on mid may.
  12. So its almost complete! I have spent the past couple of weeks working on it for an hour or so each evening! More brakes before and after: Radiator side by side: And fitted. Also sprayed the aircon rad and condensor black as I hate seeing it chipped! Gave it a quick wash today and got proper photos. The only things left to do to it is, machine polish, fit the popper for the boot, get the headlight washers working and try and get it down my track for an MOT
