My Car Diary

Currently Driving

  1. I got my Fox on Saturday and I fell in love with her immediately. Test drive went well but as I drove her home she went into limp mode and I has very upset. Did a scan and found out it was cylinder 1 misfire. Luckily I found this website and I had faith that it was just a coil pack or a sparkplug. It was just a coil pack which is great, but now I can work on the other aspects such as the wheels. She came with standard hub caps that were zip tied on and I have to replace them. Don't really know what alloys to get and which ones are compatible. I looked online on Wheel Size which is sort of helpful. Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated. Many Thanks
  2. They are a bit battered but I'll hopefully be able to refurbish them and tidy them up. What would I need to get them to fit. I have a VW 2011 FOX
  3. 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.
  4. Got hold of some 16" 4x100 I believe I need spigot rings 73.1 - 57.1? And the wheel bolts which will fit are M12 X 1.5 X 27mm - 60 degree taper? Does that sound correct? Anybody got these to fit as well?

  9. So I’ve been a member on here for a few months now, never really posted much. I bought the Lupo for £450, had a few mechanical problems, I broke the gearbox when I first started driving so had my dad sort that. I wasn’t really going to do much to the car as I didn’t really think I’d keep if for a long time. Slowly started adding stickers to the back and thought that’s all that I’d do as I didn’t think it was worth spending much on a £450 car. Here he is today, haven’t finished with him at all. I bought a few things and before I knew it he’s completely different to how he was when I first bought him. Haven’t really got many photos of the “in-between” stages. But he was a standard Lupo 1.4s. Nothing more, now he’s a little more exciting. So here he is just after I bought him. As standard as you can get. This is about half a year later, as you can see, quite a bit has changed. (Lowered, modded lights/ indicators , Tarantula alloys, wind deflectors, a load of other stuff I can’t think of.) Rear end, partially smoked and yellow tinted lights, wiper blank, stickers. Pressed plates. Splitter. Still a load to be done, spacers are on their way for the rears, fronts will then be done eventually, got some plans for the steering wheel to be changed and hopefully straight through exhaust at some point, body work needs some attention and the wheels need a good refurb. oh and here’s the gearstick and gator. Cherry/Pro Bomb fitted. Mainly bought for the fact it’ll annoy the people that live nearby. 25mm Rear Spacers fitted also. Still need to get passenger side rear wheel painted gold, along with returning the others.
  10. I just bought some "BBS" alloys and the centre bore won't sit on the hub at all. Is there a way around his? Can I resize the alloys or even put a spacer in place?
  11. We have decided to keep the Lupo (we had thought of trading it for an Up!) so I am back to wanting to smarten it up a bit. I always fancied the "starlite" alloys and so I want to buy yours! Thanks!
  12. Hi everyone I'm a new Lupo owner, I'm looking for the standard alloys that's on the Lupo 1.0E I think they are 5star softline 13inch please contact me if any are for sale or know where I can get these thanks
  13. Will 15'' ET45 57.1mm 6J alloys fit a 1L lupo/arosa? And what tyre size would be the best? The car isn't lowered. Cheers!
  14. My arosa alloys are booked in for a refurb, but thought I'd get them sprayed whilst I was there. What colours would be good on the standard 2004 arosa alloys? My car looks exactly like pictured below Cheers

  21. Hi everyone, Had my lupo for a couple months now and i'm looking to get some alloys and lower it but need some advice. I would prefer 15" wheels but don't know the widest I can get away with and offset. Also what width tyres would I need and what profile? I'm looking at getting some banded steels for it. Also undecided on weather to go for springs or coilovers to lower it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  22. ChrisHallam


    Anyone have any pics of their Lupos on 15" alloys with standard/ un lowered suspension? Cheers!
  23. Was thinking of getting 5-10mm wheel spacers but my dads told me that it's not a good idea and it may lead to some problems. What are the Pros and Cons? Are there any troubles that may come about with wheel spacers? Cheers Chris
  24. Just wondering, what width of wheel will fit onto an arosa without having to roll the arches and deal with camber? also what offset is needed?
