Hello! I am new but old, just got myself a little run about lupo! I haven't been on this forum since 2008 when I bought my first one! Like many I am here to seek advice on some faults first before I can make it my own. It's a 2004 1.7SDI. Perfect for daily workhorse life. I got it of a great family who had lost time and money trying to diagnose the faults. I wil upload a picture. Apparently it could need a new ECU but could be the relay 109 that I have been researching. The faults were cleared and came back each time. Any help appreciated!

Hi guys, I'm new here just bought a green 2000 1.7 S Sdi loop. its completely standard with 111k on the clock. Going to get saving for the real mods now needs to be low obviously. But i live in north yorkshire and they seem to like speedbumps and potholes up this way. I want it to handle well but i'll be doing 400 miles a week on the motorway so i'd prefer my spine to be intact afterwards. Can anyone recommend a good set of coilovers? The brakes too i've noticed are, for lack of a better word, s**te. so would you guys go for the full overhaul and replacement calipers bigger discs etc. or would a nice set of standard sized discs and pads do? I've heard something about g60s but i'm not entirely sure whats involved with those, any links or info would be appreciated. Now for the big question.... the engine.Have any of you guys heard of someone tuning the nonturbo diesel? should i start with the obvious air filter? and can you get a new ECU chip for performance? i heard that standard engines in most cars are pretty de-tuned to improve lifespan so i'm hoping i can get some more Ooompf from this little beating heart. As for external mods... i'm not sure yeat i like the way green looks with a good pure white so thinking of getting some white alloys. some moderate tints all round i think would contrast well with the green. I'm tring to avoid the green and black combo, not that i dont like it so much as i dont want to drive something that looks like a gillette razor (http://www.expressch...ower-razor.html) i'm a fan of all your loops on here havent found one i dont like yet so any input will be well recieved. Cheers, Bri
