  13. Does anyone have the part number for it?
  14. Hi, jus wondering if you can help. Last nights i slid into a curb on an unlayed road (high kerbs) with a horrible surface , smashed my alloy and have jus had the car jacked to see what damage was done hoping it would jus need track + balancing but looks more like iv bent the suspension wishbone(drivers side front). I need to know whether the lupo gti's suspension is the same as a standard lupo/arosa. Im not mechanically minded whatsoever so this might seem really basic to some people. Cheers
  15. Hi i have had my lupo gti for only a month now ( still not put my pictures up ) and there is a harsh like scraping noise when brakin which I have percieved to be that the its time for new brake pads. I just wanted to know if the discs will also need replacing or is it fine to just change the pads. Also what are the best pads to buy. Any help much appreciated. I do realise this will seem stupid to most people but im not very mechanically minded.
