    Lupo GTI wanted

    Hi all New here. Anybody selling their Lupo Gti? Preferably Red or Black.
  2. I got a 70,000km aluminum door model Lupo GTI. The Lupo had a fault error in the ECU, and a leak from the rear spoiler caused water to collect in the battery pan in the boot room. I used VCDS to clear the error, charge the battery, change the oil, adjust the air pressure and test drive. The drive shaft boots broke, grease splattered, and the engine check lamp turned on again. I identified all the faulty parts of the car and ordered the parts.
  3. Hi everyone, Selling my late fathers Lupo GTI in grey 1.6 litre 2004 mileage 69838. Just had it serviced and had mot done today. Only issue bubbling spoiler common problem. 1 previous owner. cambelt changed 57k mileage Looking for £6000 based in London 6 speed gear box. My late father has had it since 2009 approx. Full service history. Please feel free to contact me 07749141887. Regards
  4. J1UPO cherished number plate for sale. Please contact me with expressions of interest.
  5. The original spoiler on my 2006 Gti (ex-Japan) was badly bubbled when I bought the car in 2018. Eventually, I tried to resolve the situation by replacing with a new genuine factory spoiler, and had it painted by a bodyshop which I know to be competent. However, within one year I noticed some micro-blistering on the spoiler and, along with some other cosmetic work, the bodyshop has just re-done it . . . and even only a day or two later, I've got micro- blisters again. I've enquired again about the possibility of wrapping the spoiler, but the prospects are not good, and exact match with L041 is not feasible. A couple of people now have contended that the problem will always recur if new paint is oven dried. Does anyone here have experience please of success with air drying? Many thanks.
  6. Hello Im searching for a headlight cover - right side, part n. 6E0 941 608. It's n. 5 on the picture. Does anyone have one? or a damage headlight with the cover intact? Thanks
  7. Has anyone with a Lupo GTI ever had creaking or rattles or any noise coming from the rear that they've managed to source? Ever since I've had the car I haven't been able to deduce where the noises are coming from. It's probably a bit pointless describing them but one's like a dull rattle which I thought I'd sorted by securing the number plate lights better but it's still there. Then there's a creak which maybe comes from the back of the rear seat. The exhaust is free and never knocks. I can't see anything loose near the battery or tyre inflator etc.
  8. Hello everyone. I am looking to improve the braking efficiency on my Lupo 3L. I understand its not a car that was officially sold in the UK, but I thought you might have some suggested. The Lupo 3L officially weighs 803 Kg. That's about 172 Kg less than the Lupo GTI. My question is: Do any of the brake bits from other VW with bigger brakes bolt onto the Lupo 3L. I have sourced stiffer, shorter springs and Vesa from Tuneko Ltd in Finland is re-mapping my ECU. Any guidance would be welcomed. Thank you.
  9. Hi guys, Replaced the exhaust on my Lupo GTi a couple years ago now and the standard exhaust has just be sat in the garage since. Having a clear out, and wondered if anyone would be interested in taking it off my hands and what kinda price they go for? Having been imported from Japan, there isn't much in the way of corrosion from what I recall. Covered about 80-85k KM before it was removed. It is the full exhaust from the cat, but was cut in half when removed, so would need fabricating back together. If anyone is interested, I'll dig it out the garage and get some taken. Collection only from WS15 area, cash on collection. Any other questions, let me know.
  10. Looking to buy a front splitter for my gti. Cant seem to find much online, just wondering if anyone had purchased one before or had any recommendations? Thanks
  11. I have now accumulated no less than five steering wheels for my Gti and need to reclaim some storage space! So I’m offering the Gti wheel I commissioned from RSW Re-Trimming Ltd last year. Details are as follows: Genuine original equipment Gti wheel Rim thickened and thumb grips added Rim bottom flattened Recovered in smooth black leather with red stitching I fitted this in April 2019 and it was in use on my Gti for just 10 months, with 4,000 miles only covered. Condition is excellent, evidencing the very minimal usage I’m offering this – wheel rim/hub only, not including the centre pad/airbag-see pic 03-04-2019 – at less than half what it cost me. Internal UK Postage will be additional, at £15 Located in East Kent £105
  12. Hi Guys, Heres my Lupo GTI on around 110k, absolutely in love with this car :)! Got a decent list of mods but hoping to do more !
  13. Please delete. Mind changed!
  14. Hi all, I recently installed the "free floating screen"-style aftermarket "Halo 9" radio from Alpine (ilx-F903d) and I thought I should share some pics from the installation. I'm very happy with it! I wanted a Carplay and Android Auto enabled radio for the GTI but always felt that the 2-din screens were never bigger than my phone enough to justify the cost. The standard radio location is also way too low for the eyes. This radio has a great 9" touchscreen that actually sits way higher than the standard radios and so it makes it a joy to use, and much safer because of the size of text and buttons. As you can see the installation uses only a 1-din slot, which leaves the space underneath free for a storage cubby. Yes you lose quite a lot of the central vents air, but I think of it as having a Up! interior :D The hazard light switch is also fully covered by the screen but still reachable with your thumb. The height is of course adjustable for those who would still prefer more air and easier access to that switch. As drawbacks I'd point out to the not so stellar resolution of the display, although while driving it's not very noticeable. Also the screen can be quite reflective depending on the angle (it's also adjustable). But all in all I love it and I just installed another one on my second car (MX-5 NC).
  15. Hi, Sorry for this random post and request. Could someone please provide a height x width x depth measurement of a Lupo GTI tailgate for me as soon as possible? Lupo's are not common in the US. This measurement is not possible for me to grab locally. We are leaving for a holiday in the EU next week. I need to determine if we will be able fly back (from the EU) with a carefully packaged Lupo GTI tailgate in the hold of the plane and airlines we will be flying. Many thanks in advance for the possible help.

  17. Just saying hi, will ad pics fyi. 55 plate GTI in Black. In family since 2006 & kept completely standard. We have been approached 5/6 times over the last few years to sell e.g. supermarket car park seems the favourite - won't be selling until there's no more petrol in the world and maybe not even then!. A few Q's : One of the last come into the country from DE ? How many GTI's left on the road?

    PARTS

    Vw lupo parts for sale. Some gti parts still available!
  20. Morning all, Thanks for the add to these forums. I see many nice looking Lupos around, and a friendly community. I'm currently in the market for a GTi, and had a couple of questions to try and narrow down my search. > Are any of you considering selling? I've a budget of between 2.5/3.5k. Not looking for an ultra low mile rare, just a well-maintained, rust-free example. Please point me in the right direction, or PM. > Regarding the spec; can anyone advise me what the rarest upgrades were to these little cars? I would love to get one with a sunroof and/or the heated leather seats, but appreciate these ones do come with a premium. Also would quite like a Raven blue, but know these are quite uncommon... I'm coming from a BMW Z4M Coupe & Honda S2000, so am hoping to enjoy the fizzy motor in the GTi whilst appreciating the tasty MPG. It should be first time driver friendly too, I'd put my other half on the insurance so she can get some driving practice. Thanks everyone. 🤑 Tom
  21. Greetings from Wolverhampton all. I've been reading a few posts from here the last week so I decided to sign up. Just bought my Lupo GTi last Sunday so I thought I'd share my loot. Imported from Japan, one owner from new, 60k on the clock. Pretty good find I think 😊 What do you guys reckon?
  22. Hi All, Decided that the time has come to put my GTI up for sale as it simply isn't being used any more... The car is currently based in North Wales as it is in storage, but may be back in London in the near future. The car itself is a 5 speed, from 2002 with an electric sunroof. It will come with 2 keys and has a very good service history. The interior of the car is totally standard, including the radio system. The exterior of the car is also very close to standard, with window privacy tint and the car being lowered the only visual modifications. Mechanically, the car has had quite a lot of work as listed below, some as repairs and some as personal preference! (I have all receipts for the work that has been done) KW V1's fitted; front and rear subframes polybushed, braided brake lines, Whiteline rear ARB fitted, 2 x new driveshafts, BMC carbon airbox, new starter motor, OMP front strut brace, 20mm wheel spacers all round, new alternator tensioner + belt, new clutch + timing belt, 2 x new wheel bearings (front), KAM Racing 4-1 race manifold + de-cat exhaust, EBC yellowstuff brake pads, 4 x new Toyo tyres... The car drives like a dream and is perfectly set up for spirited road use / occasional track use. It was always meant to be a "keep forever" car which means I have spent far too much money on it, but for the 3 years I have owned the car it has been brilliant! I'm looking for around £4500 ish but will listen to offers. Any questions feel free to message me or leave a comment below! The car will not come on the private plate but will be on Y181 OEF.
  23. 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.
