  1. Hello all, First off, I know this has been posted lots before but honestly the information seems so scattered and varied and I'm not sure how applicable all of it is to my situation so I'm sorry for reposting this...please don't murder me Anyway I've come into the possesion of a 6n2 GTI engine block from a local vw dismantlers. My little (AUC) 1.0 litre has s*** the bed so I planned to do an engine swap anyway but then I got this engine for basically nothing. I know the best way to do this is to buy a complete Polo GTI that's been rear ended or something and begin swapping everything ove
  2. Custom cobra sport Lupo GTi stainless exhaust. This will replace your existing centre silencer and back box. (Cat back). Good condition fits really well on the car. 3" exit pipes, fits directly onto Lupo oem system. Removed from car to fit Oem exhaust back on.

  3. Hello All. I am fairly new to Lupo ownership. I was in need of a daily driver with a bit of space in the back, and having always liked the look of the Lupo, decided I had to have it when I found one at the back of a second hand car dealers lot in Oxford. It is a silver GTI with the six speed 02U gearbox. It appeared to be a very original car with only a small ding on a front wing. It was obvious that some other work was needed as there were warning lamps lighting up all over the dash and the charging circuit was not working. In addition it was due for a cambelt change and the gearbox crunches
  5. Lupo GTI Engine and Gearbox Description: For sale is the engine from my Lupo GTI, it's currently on 100,000 miles (may be slightly higher, can't remember). Will include coil pack, plugs, leads, inlet and exhaust manifold. Can include ECU + immobiliser box + immobiliser chip (x2) for an extra £50. Regularly serviced and maintained, folder full of history for the girl! I have a video of it running and a video showing a compression test across all cylinders. I'm 90% sure the gearbox has been rebuilt within its life but will have to confirm, all the signs of it being rebuilt are there. Loc
  6. Here is the link to the Ebay listing: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2001-VOLKSWAGEN-LUPO-GTI-BLACK-/201456372277?hash=item2ee7bc4a35:g:8-sAAOSwT5tWLzZh
  7. Taken off a 2002 GTI. No faults, holes, etc. Selling as I fitted a custom stainless system for a bit more volume. All good, just some surface oxidisation. Collect from Bracknell, Berkshire RG12. £50 takes it!
  8. Hi all, Had my GTI for a few years now but never got around to sorting this issue out, its not had any mods to it standard everywhere. The rear wheels rub on the inside of the wells, due to the less than great cornering offered on stock i can go through rear tires quite quickly. Does anyone know what my different options are and how it would help? I've come across rolling the arches but I can't see how that would help the rubbing on the inside? Any help appreciated.
  9. Hello I have 2 lupo Gti gearboxes for sale: 5 Speed (mileage unknown), was sold to me working but I never fitted it so I can’t guarantee this. £70 6 speed (2002 – 99800 miles), gear change was smooth but it did start to make a noise when in 2nd/3rd gear. The garage believed it might be a differential issue, so would need reconditioning. £100 The collection is in Banbury Oxfordshire, if you would like to arrange a courier that’s up to you but I imagine that it will be very expensive due to weight. If you would like both I will do them for £150
  10. I've got the clocks in and the car turns on and the revs go up There is however a few warning lights on the dials that don't shift Can I clear these through vcds or equivalent scanner. How can I get the milage corrected from the 100k to my 160k milage. Would love this all to be functional as I would like the mpg meter to work Currently got the chrome covers sat over my old clocks
  11. So a few of you will recognise this car, it's been around the block but as long as nothing bad happens with my finances then i'll be keeping this a very long time! I'll let the photos do the talking, there are some potato photos from my phone so I apologize in advance for this! There are photos that i don't own, but found about the internet and various build threads! P.S if you want any of the photos removed then please message me!
  12. Hi, I've got a Lupo GTI and wanted to know if it was possible to run 17" Porsche twists 7j fronts and 8.5j rears. Thanks in advance guys!
  13. Just a quick post.... I was having lots of trouble with water getting in my passenger footwell for ages until I realised the problem... This is a post for everyone else to consider when they are searching for a water leak problem! Basicaly, When the door speakers were mounted to the cars from new, they used rivets and the back of the mooting plates were SEALED to the inside of the door. This prevents the water that is designed to get into the door, coming in the car and simply drains out the holes in the bottom of the door. So when you get your lovely Lupo and someone (the previous owner to
  14. Hi all, I've recently purchased a lupo GTI! Love it to bits already! I've made a start on my boot build today and was just wanting to create a post to show people how I've got on and maybe if anyone could suggest anything So I've ordered 2x Rockford forsgate 8" subs to go in the boot My box dimensions are as follows; (these dimensions are not set in stone yet I'm waiting on the subs to be delivered first) 800 x 300 base 764 x 264 top 800 x 171 front & back x2 264 x 171 sides x2 I will the lay a false floor on top of the box all nicely trimmed and lit up with clear view of the subs Only
  15. Anyone have a left front GTI uoright for sale?
  16. Looking for a Lupo GTI gearbox. Preferably 6speed, but would consider a 5 Wanting one ready to fit with not too high mileage and smooth changes. Cheers
  17. Hi I have owned this car for just over two months now and I can't fault it its a great car!- nippy, sticks to the road, responsive... But I need something bigger, as much as I love small VWs. It's done 94k miles, it's got MOT till December, it's completely standard apart from a backbox delete so the exhaust is a bit louder (sounds good). Body work and paint is good condition apart from a scuff on the front bumper. Interior is good for the age and I've got stacks of history for it. The top end was rebuilt 10-12k miles ago with new valve seats, valves, head gasket, timing belts etc. (So engine d
  18. Doing the conversion from drums to discs... Does anyone happen to know if the GTI has handbrake return springs that sit on the rear of the calliper? Thanks, Sergio.
  19. i was wondering is there a way i could take the power steering off of my gti and buy a manual rack of a old lupo? would it be a direct bolt on job? i think it should be as there are the same shell??? cheers.
  20. My beloved GTi is struggling a bit getting it's drivers side headlight turned on! When the lights are turned on, all 4 fronts light up, but the drivers side xenon flickers on and off full brightness before turning off after about 10s. I have a suspicion it's the (rather expensive) ballast that's causing the problem, but wondered if anyone else has had a similar issue? My battery hasn't been overly happy recently, but given regular usage it seems to charge fine and the battery issues predate the light problem. Any help would be much appreciated!!
  21. Hi everyone, i have been offered a 5 speed lupo GTI for a good price and the only problem is the 5 speed gearbox has a whine in 3rd. i have been looking at reconditioned gearboxes and was wondering if it is possible to put the 6 speed gearbox on? And if so what else would have to be changed such as gear linkages? and will it work with the current ecu? i have searched on the forum for this question and haven't been able to find a definitive answer. i know the 6 speed lupo box will not fit to a 5 speed polo gti but what about the 5 speed lupo gti? thanks in advance matt
