Hi all, I just bought a lupo GTi yesterday in Raven blue! Love the car! As my first upgrade on the car, I wanted to do the MFD install. I've been trying to read up about it as much as I can but please bear with me if I'm asking some questions with obvious answers. (vwnavi has been down for maintenance for a few days so I can't get much info there) So, here come some questions...if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it. 1) is there a specific model required, do D and G models work? I'm looking at buy one with the following model number (3B0035191d) will that work? 2) I don't plan on using the sat nav at all. Do I still need the plug and play loom? Where can I get one nowadays? Any wiring diagrams I can use to splice the correct wires together if I can't find this plug and play kit? 3) what I want to do is get some sort of video in working on the unit. I've read about a dietz1212 adapter? Is this what I need and are there any alternatives (it's quite old I know). 4) will I be able to get a 3.5mm aux in or will I need the plug and play adapter? 5) does it slot straight in? As far as I know it does but it's a bit tight for space behind the dash. Can somebody confirm this? 6) I've also read about 'CAN-BUS' issues where the unit switches off after 59mins. This doesn't apply to the MFD I hope? Thanks and I hope to post a few pics of my car on the weekend. This would be a super project for me if somebody could help out!
Hi guys! So i've brought this cute little lupo as my first car since i wanted a car of a certain quality and something which would be fun to drive. It's a light Blue lupo 1.0 from 1999, which will get some mods as the funds raise for it. So far I've swapped out the wheels for some VW Motorsport RIAL rims, debadged and sharan sized badge on the rear and changed the stereo to a MFD unit for the pure OEM look. Im always looking for new ideas and mods for the car, and like everyone might suggest, i know i need more low, but i need to save up the money for new suspension parts until then, this is what I got: And with the new Sharan badge in place: and some lousy interior photos:
