  1. Hi all, Was curious if anyone has attempted a project similar to this before: raising a Lupo. When the Volkswagen Lupo was announced many years back I was disappointed that no "cross" version of the vehicle was ever made, as the VW Golf Country Mk2 looked (and still looks) amazing - even if it was built in limited numbers. So, the intent of this project would be to produce a VW Lupo which looks similar to the VW Golf Country Mk2 and fulfills a similar purpose. Of course, this is a very early concept and something I quickly whipped up in Microsoft paint but this would be something similar
  2. Can the lupo 1.4 sport (100bhp) parts such as the cams and aftermarket manifolds end exhausts fit on the 1.4 S (75bhp)?
  3. Hi I have a vw lupo which is leaking through the passenger door. We've took the door cards off and poured water down the window and there's a lot of water coming through but we've changed the window seal and it's still doing the same. We are at a loss. Please help
  4. Hello, my VW Lupo 1.4 TDI currently has a gearbox problem and I am not sure what I need to do to fix it, the gears all work fine once it is in gear but it doesn’t want to go into gear and I end up searching for the gears, going up the gears is easier but when you want to downshift it really struggles to get into gear, I’m really hoping I don’t need a new gearbox, I’ve been told it might be todo with the clutch, but at this point I am looking for any advice or suggestions on what to try, thanks in advance
  5. Hi all, I was wondering if any of you have put different dash buttons/switches into your VW Lupo's, and if so which ones actually fit. I've seen some people suggest that a VW Golf (Mk4) has the same dash, and therefore button dimensions as a Lupo; I was wondering if this was true. Atop of this, what other vehicles - if any - share the same dash switch dimensions as the VW Lupo. Many Thanks
  6. Hi All, I was wondering if any of you have replaced, or added, a USB port into your VW Lupo's. My Lupo currently has 1 of the 5 possible buttons/switches being used (which is for heating the rear window) and I was looking at installing a USB switch their, I was wondering if any of you have done such a task before and what I would need to do so: (i.e.) what switch I need, what tools, etc. Many Thanks
  7. Hi All, I was wondering if anyone had ever modded a VW Lupo to turn it into a 4x4. I'm not sure why I'm eve thinking about this to be honest, but I was doing some research and the Fiat Panda and VW Lupo are almost have the same chassis length (by about 30mm, 3cm, or so) - meaning a conversion wouldn't be too hard: just very expensive. Atop of this, when I was thinking of this idea I imagined the VW Lupo as something like a G-Wagen. A huge, raised, truck - but it's just a Lupo. I mean, back in the day a Fiat Panda (1) (1980) had just 59bhp and was a good 4x4 - so keeping a 1.4 (75bhp) or S
  8. This is my Volkswagen Lupo, it's a 3D 1L, 2003 painted yellow. This is what it looked like when I first bought it. However it did not stay the this way. My dad works in a garage on the island and so of course did some work on it for me. He painted the bumpers, fitted brand new gear cables, put four coats of polish on and a new grille, took out the dents and a few other bits and pieces. This is the finished piece, needless to say I love it, especially for a first car. Of course, being the lunatic that I am. I decided to go off-roading with a couple of my buddie
  9. I noticed all 3 of my brake lights have gone on my 2003 1.0 VW Lupo. So instantly thinking it's the switch. Have replaced the switch and they still don't work. Checked the fuse and they're fine. Just for good measure I replaced the bulbs and still don't work. What else could it be??? Can anyone help?
  10. Hi everyone my names Kelly, I have a yellow Lupo 1.4s that I love dearly. However I've had it many many years now and I no longer have a need for a car. I wanted the car to go to a loved home. Someone who would give it some TLC that it needs and value it. I'm new to this club and am not actually sure if your allowed to sell cars on here so I apologise now if that's not allowed. Like I said I wanted to reach out to people who love lupos as much as me and who maybe wanted a new project to work on. If anyone's interested in purchasing it please get in touch and we can talk more about it

  12. HI, I recently got myself a second hand lupo and i'm in love with the car. Only problem being that when I pull the level to open the bonnet the lever just pops off and i have to put back on, is there something i need to be pulling on or something to press. Thanks, Dom

  17. Hi guys, Was wondering as the speedometer on the vw lupo tdi is a bit broken at the moment and I was trying to find another one to replace it. There are none for sale at the moment but there are many polo tdi clocks for sale. Is it possible to use a polo tdi clock in a vw lupo of the same year, they are both identical except the polo speedometer goes to 140 instead of 120, will this be an issue? Tried to research but couldnt find much about it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance and take it easy
