    Hey! Blue Lupo 1.0

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum, I've been browsing and today I got my first Lupo 1.0 which is also my first car. I'm 16, I live in Welling, Kent. I have a light/baby blue Lupo, Nothing done to it yet but my plans are to drop it as low as possible. I'm going to smooth the front & back bumper, I have bought a de-badged grill already, I'm not sure if I should take the indicators out of the front of leave them on yet. I'm also going to smooth out the boot. I'm going to buy a Ripspeed DV-720 head unit, I have a 900 watt edge sub already just need to buy a custom box if anyone can help me out would be great. My brother is selling me an amp, I'm going to buy an air filter also a new exhaust not sure which one yet. Front & back strut braces, and some nice alloys. Ill be uploading my pics of the car tomorrow, I'm also going to log down everything I buy and do to the car upload pictures of before and after also! If anyone can help me selling me some parts would be thankful. Thanks Sammy
  2. My name is Sven, and I'm from the Netherlands.This is my first Lupo, and I have been driving it for about 10 months now, 1200 kilometres a month. I bought her deadstock from a father that bought it for his daughters. Specs: Lupo 1.4 16V 75 HP Year: 1999 Modifications done: - Vmaxx coilovers (Front all the way down | Rear with adjustment cups totally removed) - 14 inch Widened Steel (8j et 18 all arround) - Negative camber on both the rear and the front for a perfect stance - Black gloss Wrapped roof - GTI aero windscreen wipers in the front - removed rear wiper - Small citroën c5 antenna - debadged trunk - Alpine IDA-305S headunit - Audio System Radion 100.4 amplifier - Hertz ESK 165 speakers in the front, with tweeters in the original place, all invisible - Herts ds 300 subwoofer mounted in a false floor lined with black suède I'm sure I missed a lot of my other small modifications, but it's all about the total package, so here are some pictures! How she currently sits, in wintersetup: Current Audio setup: Before the current setup, I have driven her with 13 inch ATS Classics (unfortunately I had to sell them) : And before the ATS I drove arround with oversized hubcaps: Right know I do not have to much plans, because I'm a student and I have just moved to a new place. But when the winter is gone, I'm probably going to buy a new set of wheels (because I'm a bit of a wheel whore, if I have enough money ) Just one last picture I really like:
  3. I am selling my Lupo as I need to get a bigger car with more seats. It's in excellent condition and build quality is very solid as you'd expect from Volkwagen. Comes with full service history from new with 40K miles on the clock. The car had a full service and MOT on 9th December so will come with a full year's MOT. It's very economical and costs about £35 to fill up. It's taxed until the end of January 2012 and costs £115 per year. The Lupo also has driver and passenger airbags, PAS, VW fitted radio, cassette and CD player, Owner's Manual wallet, inertia rear seatbelts and two sets of keys. It's a great car and is very easy to drive for a learner or for someone who's just passed their test - Group 2 insurance so very cheap to run. £2,150 ono (would also consider swapping the Lupo for a larger 5 door car with less than 60K on the clock) Just let me know if you need any more information or you want to come and view it - or drive it. I have this on Ebay where there are photos: http://www.ebay.co.u...9#ht_500wt_1413 ***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD***

    Lupo GTI Front Bumper

    Lupo GTI Front Bumper Front bumper from my black 2002 Lupo GTI, sold before but buyer lost interest. It has a small crack in the drivers side that cant be seen once fitted. The brackets to hold the washer jets need sticking back on or you could smooth the holes out. This is NOT mint, it has area's of lacquer peal and stone chips as expected from a used bumper, it also has small holes in the lower edge where a LCR splitter WAS fitted. That's why it's cheap!!! Price: £25 COLLECTED ONLY Item located in Solihull, West Midlands.

    Lupo GTI Strut Brace

    Lupo GTI OMP Upper Front Strut Brace For a Lupo GTI but will fit all Lupo’s I think due to it been so high. Bought this earlier this year and never fitted it. It came red and I stripped off the powder coating and repainted it satin black for a OEM+ effect. I also modified it to fit properly so it clears the top of the strut towers and drilled extra holes for mounting it, so you don’t need to use little screws. The paint is in perfect condition, good enough to fit to my car for shows. Where I bought it from..... http://www.kamracing.co.uk/volkswagen/vw-lupo/suspension/strut-braces/vw-lupo-1-6-16v-gti-omp-front-upper-strut-brace-adjustable.html Will post via UPS. Price £60 COLLECTED or +£10 POSTED Payment via Paypal gift, or bank transfer

    Saw a Yellow Lupo "V" reg i think, in Falkirk Bus Station, On Monday lunchtime, i reckon its pretty unique coz of the Grey Dolphin on the Wing Mirror. Theres also a Black "W"? reg that parks out the front of Forth Valley College (Falkirk Campus) Have also seen a Green Lupo, Navy Arosa and Black Arosa in the car parks.

    What is a lupo 3L?

    I have been trying to find out as have seen alot of people talk about them on here but don't know exactly what they are.
  10. Below are some pics of the lupo - the good ones and also where there is a scuff on one of the rear arches, front bumper and key mark down the side. They've all been on there in the 18 months I've owned it - never planned on going concourse with it so it didnt bother me...i just needed bad ass fuel economy for my 60 mile a day round trip - i get 370 - 400 miles out of a tank for like £40. Bought it (off this board) with 108,500 on it and it's on 134,400 ish and it's never missed a bit. Serviced by my mate with his own garage and everything that ever needed to be sorted mechanically was. Taxed til april next year - mot til like mid may. Teledials have like 1500 miles on them tyres and also i have the original rims with two new front tyres on 'em too. It aint no show stopper - but it's a damn cool, cheap to run little work horse. I dont really want to get rid but i've just started working for meself so cant really roll up to clients places in a loops. Looking for £1400 on the nose - Based in Great Barr, North Birmingham - Graeme 07982 260280

  12. Make: Volkswagen Model: Lupo 1.0 Year/Reg: 2000 X reg Mileage: 75000 MOT: 12 Months MOT Tax: 12 Months or can be taken off and price reduced accordingly Good points: Very reliable Lupo which is not only low cost on tax and insurance but is incredibly cheap to run.

Comes with a Rieger styling kit which really works with the car and is colour coded. Lowish mileage for the age.

One small ciggy burn in the driver’s seat. Headliner is a bit grubby but could easily be cleaned out. Location: Birmingham Pictures: Price: £1500 or very near offer Contact details: 07905 825628

    Noise from my engine!

    Hi everyone, apologies if there is something on this already. I have a 1.0 done 87k Had new tappets put in as I thought it was that. Was a bit quieter for a week or so. Then NOISE AGAIN! What is it? Tappets need adjusting? Cylinders? Cylinder heads? or what? Love this car, and if need be would get it reconditioned. Any advice? Thanks in advance, Will. videos; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCYkOK67P88 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCnklHiSUog http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTy6f-ehXnA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTy6f-ehXnA
  14. Hi, the time has come where I can finally afford the car I wanted to get before I got this so my baby is going up for sale to fund it! Has been extremely well looked after in my ownership and is in mint condition After spending a couple of months searching for the right car I found this little gem in Mansfield with a company called 'Small car Company' with FSH HPI clear and 1 woman owner since new, bought the car on 47,348 miles for £2,700 with all purchase receipts to prove. Spec; (WILL NOT SPLIT ANY PARTS SORRY) 54k on the clock, will rise as it's daily 2002 1.4S (75bhp) in Reflex Silver FSH not including this years most recent service as I've done it myself! (service items detailed below) but does include MOT certificate for this year and engine service in march this year HPI CLEAR Logbook with FSH included RECENT SERVICE includes new air filter, fuel filter and oil filter with oil change, a new pencil coil (also have an extra spare included in sale - £20 a piece) as well as new OEM brake disks and pads (also had an engine service professionally at C-G Autos (10/03/2011) with receipt and stamp to prove) GEARBOX recon and rebuild 18/02/2011 at 49k miles at the cost of £420 including 2 years warranty (still has 16 months warranty left with cleckheaton gearboxes - with all receipts and warranty slip included CLUTCH was also replaced with new original VW parts at Rhodes Motors Clutch Specialists in Halifax (14/02/2011) at cost of £280 with receipt to prove and so is good for another 60-70k RECENT MOT by Charlie Brown's in Halifax literally this weekend gone, flew through and of course have certificate. SUSPENSION includes £400 AP coilovers (can get you as low as you need and ride very well; from experience with cheap coilovers that I had initially bought) currently fitted to car as well as standard suspension (still in complete working order with all parts boxed and ready to take away WHEELS include Compomotive TH-monos with good 195/45/15 tyres (4-5mm all round) currently off the car (to avoid road salts and bad weather) wheel spec is 15x8 et25 with spigots for VW centre bore, have been repolished to mirror finish rather than diamond cut so they are easier to keep clean and IMO look better, these wheels are spotless and dont have a mark on them. I also still have the original receipt from rimstyle in 09/2010 at the cost of £684 and they are only 13 months old now. I will also include the original 13" steels and spotless trims, its a set of 5 all with good 175/60/13 tyres on INTERIOR includes full leather interior worth £1,500; ford RS turbo Recaro front seats and the rest at GTI spec (rear seats, all 4 door cards and parcel shelf) the rear cards have speaker mesh so you can fit rear speakers, I haven't done so), parcel shelf has had the dip/groove filled in and trimmed and looks great. All leather is BMW red nappa with diagonal stitching. Leather is only about 3 months old and will come with 2 front seat covers EXTERIOR has a smoothed front bumper reg recess, legal pressed plates, rub strips and badges removed, rear badge has been split with black backing painted reflex silver to match car de-wiper with glass blank at rear and aero wipers up front rolled and flared arches all round Paint is very good with only one mark, being on the bootlid next to the window on the passenger side pillar, very small and only noticeable up close and probably wouldnt bother most people but I like things to be clean Roof lining trimmed in black damask and dash trim painted textured dark red to match leather Sale will include uprated door speakers and unfitted tweeters which are all Alpine IIRC, as well as a 900W EDGE active sub and Kenwood headunit (can find full details if required) - also including original VW 2 part stereo with tape as well as CD player I've had the chassis notched on drivers side to allow lower ride height without fouling the drive shaft on the chassis, its a really neat job (picture is mid process before corrosion protection was applied so it is now a primer grey colour) Car has camber shims set at maximum 1.5 degrees fitted on the rear to get the compos tucked in, doesnt effect handling at all, if anything it feels more planted in corners literally the only bad thing about this car is that the tax is due 31st Nov! Car is spotless inside and out, feels solid as a rock and runs great as its very well looked after and whenever a problem arises its fixed ASAP Price is £4,000 EDIT FORGOT TO ADD PICTURES, DUH. How it will look when you turn up (i.e winter mode ) Interior shots Car shots only shot I have from back end to show all reds, dewiper and colour coded badge :S Wheels If you want pictures of anything else give me a shout and I'll get them for you £4,000 WILL NOT SPLIT ANY PARTS SORRY No rush for sale, no timewasters RING 07812212822 or reply on here or PM since I'm on pretty much every day anyway Cheers, Max
  15. I am selling My Black VW Lupo 1.4s, I'm looking at 2k with Ronal Turbos, or £1750 w/o them, I still have the original wheels so i'd chuck those in for 2k too, i just want them out of the garage! I'm in the Midlands - Swadlincote Spec: V - Reg Engine - 1.4s Milage - 97k Heated Leather interior (GTI) CD Player (standard) Electric windows/ sunroof Very clean and tidy inside and out Ronal turbos - Not in mint condition, but definately not shabby! ...they always get the head turning they deserve.. Custom centre exhaust Pressed Plates Body work is in good condition for it's age, a few scratches from carparks etc, nothing a T-Cut wouldn't sort out. It will probably need an oil change soon as it kicks out a bit of cloud when it starts sometimes, but that's the only fault!

    engine missing :S

    right was driving down motorway (as i normally do most tuesday nights) anywho, doing 70 for about 10miles and car feels like its missing for a split second then kicks in again then 2 seconds later happens again, did this on and off for about 70miles.... did slow down and give it a hard drive in 4th to clear things out and worked fine but wonder'd if anyone on here had the same problem, think it mite be dodgy fuel or fuel pickup pump getting some crap form bottom of tank.. but not sure :/ need to know asap.

    TESTING THE WATER 1.4s 60,000 miles Service history On TA Technick coilovers Scratch on door £2,500?
  19. @@mandyjayney Here is my Lupo which I have had for just over a year. I am looking to upgrade to a more powerful car, therefore I am selling. It is a perfect first car, and very cheap to insure. It also drives beautifully for the age of the car. Even though you may be put off with the high mileage, it has had several things replaced since buying the car. Cambelt Clutch Engine Hoses Recent new front tyres New spark plugs New HT leads Since buying the car, I have installed a genuine VW CD player alongside the tape and the radio. I have also put genuine 14 inch VW Alloy wheels on the vehicle. TAX - January 2012 MOT - July 2012 The car is in good condition inside and out, and has a few minor scuffs and scrapes (which you can expect for a 10 year old car). I have looked after her very well. Viewing is more than welcome and also advised, it really is a great little car and especially for first time drivers as it is fun, easy and cheap to drive. Any questions just email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you would also like any more pictures or details, just let me know. Car available as of 9th October.

    i-Kube, first time driver.

    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?
