My Car Diary

Currently Driving

  1. Hi all, So I've been reading things (yeh I know), I'm just in the process of renewing all my brakes and lowering the sdi on coilovers. I've read some things (on here) that if you lower then the rears could lock on braking due to them overcompensating for increased load on the rear..? I've never heard this before but my car doesn't have ABS. Has anyone had to adjust their brake bias to counteract this? If so how? Or is this all a load of BS? I wouldn't normally be bothered but I don't play with brakes! Cheers
  2. Go to last page for most recent updates. Currently running 423bhp. How she stands at the moment. Hello, Before I start I just want to say a quick something to all those people who go on about people who pay for these kinda things and don't get a finger dirty! Its not that I don't want to do my own conversion, I'd love to do it myself but I don't have the skills required or the time that would be needed. Things that I can do myself like brakes, suspension and other bits and bobs I have but this is just too far past me, Lol! But hey if you wanna have a pop at me feel free lo
  3. Hey there, I'm currently looking for some coilovers for my Arosa as my springs just aren't low enough! Anyone selling any cheap? I just want lows around 80-100mm so please do not share any that will not go that low! Thank you.
  4. Hey @All. This is my first post on here! I need some advice: I need my rear to come down 1-3cm more. Adjuster rings are out, Cup is left there. It's an FK AK Street Any ideas? Took the cup out and seemed wonky and spring wasn't held by the plate underneath
  5. Running Ta Technix coilovers all round, wound all the way down at the back and still getting a huge arch gap of about 50mm. Running standard Lupo shocks is this what’s causing the back to be so high even though my coils are wound all the way down? Please any advice is appreciated.
  6. As in the description I'm after rear adjusters for JOM Coilovers. I know people take them out to go lower but I need to go higher - too many speedbumps on my estate.
  7. Hi. I'm new to here. I own a 2006 1.4 Fox which is my first car and it's great. I'm getting some coilovers for it so I rang up my insurance the other day and asked how much it would be to lower it 50mm on coilovers. When they say "lower" do they know this means coilovers? Or does it just mean any types of lowering cause I got the sense the guy wasn't too bothered about coilovers. I don't know if this would be adding value to the car or anything and would change the quote. I also have got a set of 15" ASA alloys that I told the insurance about but they literally only cared about "alloys" not th

  9. Hello all. Let's start from the very beginning. So I bought my Lupo GTI just under 3 years ago now - 28th June 2014 to be precise. I originally bought the car with every intention of making it a road going show car, after attending various local/nationwide shows with a select group of friends. The level of attention to detail of some of these cars was second to none and it was really quite inspiring to see first hand for myself. Growing up in the North West of England (Wigan) I was lucky to be exposed to a large variety of different automotive cultures. Be it everything from Japanese
  10. i have i problem, i recently have blown my front struts and am looking in to coilovers. my car is all ready lowered on 40mm springs but as i stripped the back (seats, spear, sub and random things in the boot) it now sits like a monster truck. what the best coils out there that's good for the money and is not going to break the bank. iv heard ta technix are really good for the money and last quite a bit thanks for the help Jake

  12. I have an early model arosa I want to buy lowering springs , the site I want to buy them off fk-shop.de have them for a lupo but doesn't say what model before or after face lift. I'm just wondering does that matter, do all models of Arosa/Lupos share suspension ? Also is that a reputable site to buy off or any suggestions for somewhere else would be much appreciated Thanks Alex
  13. Okay so tonight I put my deposit down on this sweet little green 1.4 Lupo Sport, 84k on the clock, a few scratches but rad for a first car. For a first car, yes being 20 and only just getting his first car, laugh it up! I have a good few plans for her, first being cleaned and cleaned again, then slammed....as you do.... Already have done a mock up of what i want the dash to look like.... hope to chat soon! Alex

  20. Right I bought this car off a good friend of mine as a run around to get me out of the sh*t whilst i fixed my daily 330d bmw a few months back, but i ended up enjoying the car that much i ended up keeping it for months. Due to being a whorder and owning 5 cars including this one now its time to get realistic and sell off some of the fleet I am no means selling this one because its the worst one i own as its actually been the most reliable, but I'm sure you can understand that i will be keeping my 330d and 20vt Mk2 Golf and selling the rest SPEC Jazz Blue1.4s 16vX red (2000)12 Months MOT97,5

  23. Hello, im Gary, im 21 from Newcastle. I've been a member on here for a while now but never really posted much. Little bit of car history, I started off with a 1.4 Lupo E which I loved! I had that about a year or so before I fancied getting something a little old school, so I picked up a 89' polo saloon, paid £400 and it only had 40000 miles on. Sadly, one night after I parked it up, a friend of mine crashed into it while he was dicking around and wrote it off! So after a few month of being off the road, I got the money from the insurance and picked up an Arosa, 1litre which stayed standa
  24. I have a set of GAZ coilovers which I have fitted to my Lupo GTI. Currently running on standard 14" wheels and Toyo 195/45 tyres. I also have a rear anti roll bar fitted. The GAZ in addition to the height adjustment have adjustors on each coilovers for ride dampening. The rear ones you access from underneath and there is a dial with about 10 clicks adjustment - to +, the front ones are accessed under the bonnet and has a similar adjustor to the rear. As you can imagine there are many combinations and I have never yet managed to find a set up that is not shudderingly hard or soft mattress boun
  25. Hey guys, this is my first car, a 2006 VW Urban Fox 1.2 in Uranium Grey. The cars done 34k miles and its perfect for what i need it to do. Ive had it about 2/3 months now and as a car guy i'm ready to start work, the only thing has been money but thats getting sorted. ive done what i can for now with limited resources etc but ive managed to black out the VW badges, take off the other badges, take off the door trims and keep the car looking as best i can for the time being. the shortlist includes coil overs, head unit, alloys (16/17") exhaust, fog light installation, 20mm spacers and smoked lig
