  1. Wondering if anyone else has any experience with swapping out the original Lupo steering wheel with a golf one. Is it as simple as taking the current one off, and putting a golf one on? Or are there any hacks that need to be in place for this to be feasible? Any information will be helpful!!
  2. Hi there guys, This has been long overdue by me really! Been a proud Lupo owner for just over a year now and have been currently browsing the forums since before i had my car haha just never got round to making an account. Anyways, here is my Lupo! Bought the car late last year for £850 it had covered around 54000 miles and had five owners! and it was in a pretty bad way to be fair but it was good enough to be my first car! The bodywork was not the best, interior was nasty all the seats and drivers footwell were covered in fag burns, head lining had some strange blood/rust looking stain and the speedo didnt work! But all in all it was very local to me which was rare (never any lupos around here ) and i pretty much loved the car as soon as i saw it so yeah haha here is the build thread of my car, a lot has changed over this year but here goes: Apologies as majority of my pictures are taken from my iPhone (mainly instagram) if you have instagram follow me! @dom_vw <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dominicwilliams/8268025026/" title="IMG_0060 by DominicWilliams, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8357/8268025026_f3b3eecfdf_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="IMG_0060"></a> Car a week or so after owning it completely standard <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dominicwilliams/8268025500/" title="IMG_0071 by DominicWilliams, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8071/8268025500_abf90b4801_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="IMG_0071"></a> BMX Roadtrip me and a few friends and my mates Polo went on to Wirksworth not long after having my car <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dominicwilliams/8266957529/" title="IMG_0072 by DominicWilliams, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8501/8266957529_1f8d35389c_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="IMG_0072"></a> Who says you cant fit 6 BMX's in a lupo? <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dominicwilliams/8266960273/" title="IMG_0260 by DominicWilliams, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8357/8266960273_a5e8419e62_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="IMG_0260"></a> Bit of a bump!
