  1. Hi, It's with a heavy heart that we are selling our Seat Arosa 1.4 16v Sport. It's in great working order and has been well looked after and maintained. It's had 2 owners from new, myself and then later my parents. It's in Black with the Red and Black interior. I'll be gathering additional details over the weekend, but wanted to find out if it was worth advertising here given it's quite high mileage. (I went everywhere in it and loved every moment until I got my Audi A5 Quattro. 🙂) MOT: 18 Oct 2022 Milage 113845k There's a rust spot on the drivers wing that will need treating & filling. As far as I know that's it for wear and tear. We have a full service history since new. If it's unlikely to be of interest to folks here, no worries, but thought I would ask. Thx.
  2. Good afternoon, First time poster here since buying my Lupo. I am looking for advice on alloy wheel fitment. So my lupo needs 3 tyres replacing but instead of replacing them I have a set of 15 inch alloy wheels with tyres on that have only been driven 200 miles maximum. The alloys I have are of a mk3 golf vr6 (I have 4x100 to 5x100 adapters) so they will fit interms of pcd and centre bore as far as I'm aware. The tyre size on them are 195/45/15 and the car is on coilovers. So with the 195 45 15 tyres and the alloy specs are 6.5Jx15 ET43. Two questions I have are: Will they fit? Will there be a clearance issue in the arches? I look forward to your replys and expertise Kind regards Jordan Ps. I have attached a picture of the very same alloy wheels and my car.

    I just picked up my first VW Lupo. I'm going to use it as a bit of a project, as it needs some love and attention thanks to the previous owner treating it like a bin!!! Anyway, it seems to drive fine but bodywork has some touches rust and chopped paint. Biggest pain is the roof gutter metal trim has popped up at the front of the car and I can't seem to push it back in! I've stuck it down with gaffa tape for now!!!! Can I slide it out and refit. There is some of the dreaded rust but it looks like it had work done previous (watchdog!!!) and I wanted to take them out and clean up and grease. Any advice would be welcome!! I'm a newbie at this, so sorry if I'm sounding clueless!!!
  4. I have a 1.7 SDI (2000). It's my first car, I absolutely love it, but ...I've suddenly started to get a knocking sound, (this is even in neutral just idling) along with a slight chirping sound, it sounds like a belt slipping perhaps? I've booked him to go into the garage on Wednesday, but I'm nervous we are talking a HUGE job here or the death of my lovely car. He's done 116,000 miles, so he's getting on a bit. I'm a new driver (less than 6 months) so I do occasionally make mistakes and miss a gear or stall. But I'm really hoping it isn't anything final, or anything that is going to cost me hundreds of pounds! 😵 He's a noisy car (always has sounded like a tank). But attached is a video, any sensible ideas as to what it could be causing it? Please be kind... A sad gal, with a poorly car... 20200227_184145.mp4 😔
  5. Hi all, I recently passed my driving test and my first car is a 2001 1L Lupo E, I've had it a little while and it was a bit of a banger when I bought it but I've had a lot of work done to it. So far I've had front wheel bearings replaced, all new tyres, new track rods (think that's what they're called), all wheels have been balanced, tracking has been done and I've had a new timing belt fitted. Anyway in a few weeks I'm planning a road trip with my girlfriend that's about a 3hr drive and its all on the motorway 😐 . I've noticed at about 55mph my car starts to shake pretty bad but it also gets progressively worse as I get faster (never been above 75ish mph) and just wondering if anyone has got any ideas as to what it could be so I can try to get it sorted before the big trip lol?
  6. Hi all, I'm new here. Recently changed the pedal box on my loop, all has been well since. Car flew though it's MOT today, on the way home I noticed that the brake light was coming on with depressing the clutch pedal. I'm assuming it's an issue with the brake pedal switch?? Prior to MOT I had noticed the EPC light was on (was on before the pedal box was changed though so wasn't concerned) so I took apart the cluster and hide it with some well placed electrical tape. The brake lights are still working fine. Anyone have a fix to this/experienced it before?? Any advice welcome
  7. Hello, was just wondering how the power steering fluid can be drained? I want to drain it has it hasn't been done in a while plus i feel like a new load of power steering fluid will help keep everything in check. Any help would be great and Pictures will also be a huge help Thanks.
  8. Hi guys so I was just wondering what's the best way to go about fitting wheels that are 5x112 to a loop don't fancy getting any new ones as I made these ones up nicely for my taste. Could I convert the axle ends or will I need new axles I have access to a fabrications workshop so and work can be done that's needed. Any help would be great thank you!
  9. he currently own a 1.4 vw lupo sport in red and was wondering what rims to get got a budget of about £250 - £375 was thinking about some ronal turbos but advice would be great thanks.
  10. I just brought my first vw (a round of applause isn't necessary) and for now I've got about £600 to spend on it. It's a 1.4 1999 lupo s, I'm not 100% sure what the colour is called but I've heard it's fuchsia green? (Looks abit like kermit the frog). Other than fitting my stereo and sub it's completely stock! However some previous owner has kept the alloys and left me with steelies and hubcaps. So I need to know what is worth doing to kermit and what I should avoid. What kind of alloys should I get? Debadge or rebadge? Stickers no stickers? Lower? I welcome any suggestions! Cheers in advance.
  11. Whats up everyone, I've decided on the wheels that I want, I'm going for a set of silver Axe EX8's 15" x 8". My problem though is tyre's. I don't know the first thing about stretching so i wanted to know what size tyre would go well with a nice amount of stretch, I'm thinking 195/45/15. Has anyone got any pics of something simlar? Like 1j thinner than the wheels? Any help is appreciated! Thanks everyone!
  12. Hi, so i'm looking to buy some coilovers and have been looking around at different ones and this is some that I have found in the budget range :- Jom Coilovers £189 Fk Ak Street £185 Ta Technix £189 then into the higher price being :- Ap Coilovers (straight from AP) £385 Fk Highsport £355 There are probably many others around but I have hear some bad reviews about different ones, was wondering if to spend a bit on some expensive ones or just get budget coilovers and if so what ones. Cheers

  14. Putting in an infinity kappa 1400w in my Mk2 Arosa and need some advice on what size amp i need with it... I'm on a tight budget so dont really wanna spend over 250-300 pound...
  15. So my beloved 1litre is nearly dead. Anyone know any companies out there that will source an engine and swap them for me? And does anyone know if it's possible to swap from 1.0 to 1.4 with ease, like is or just a mount change or are the shapes completely different? I live in South Wales of anyone knows anywhere local... Thanks.
  16. been looking at a body kit for my lupo, and on the rear bumper the exhaust is in the right rather than left. would it cost anything to have the exhaust moved so it is in the middle. heres the link: http://www.madmotors.co.uk/bodykits-spoilers-14000/body-kits/vw/vw-lupo/ingo-noak-tuning-vw-lupo-98-look-rear-bumper.html and heres the front, just wondering if id need to change anything to put this on http://www.madmotors.co.uk/bodykits-spoilers-14000/body-kits/vw/vw-lupo/ingo-noak-tuning-vw-lupo-98-05-look-front-bumper.html last note, what side skirts would you recommend to use with this kit because there actually isnt any side skirts built with them cheers guys
  17. I'm taking my lessons and I have a 1.0l lupo se. I've been trying to get quotes for once I've passed and they all come to around £4000, Third Party Fire & Theft as well. My mum and dad have told me I can get insured with i-Kube for £2000, except I can't drive between 11pm-5am. I don't find this too much of a problem because it will work out cheaper in the long run. I was just wondering if anyone knew if they allowed mods?
  18. Hey, I'm Jack, 17 and just bought a 1.0L Lupo SE for my first car! It's in perfect condition and only has 15,000 miles. I want to get it lowered with a nice set of BBS or BBS look-a-like rims on it. Any advice on costs would be much appreciated. Really excited to get driving it.
