  1. Make: Volkswagen Model: Lupo 3L MOT: January 2021 TAX: n/a Engine size: 1191 cc Fuel type: diesel Description including modifications: see below Location: Lelystad, the Netherlands Images: see below Price: £2,250 obo In brief 2003 VW Lupo 3L 1,191 cc 3-cylinder turbodiesel Robotised semi automatic 5-speed gearbox Left hand drive (Mainland Europe only model) Curb weight 829 kg MOT tested until the 3rd of February 2021 Both keys are present Non-smokers car Odometer reads 377,404 km (Lupo is still used occasionally so milage rises) Full options (see list below) Extensive service history with receipts to back this up History First registered in 2003 in Germany. Exported to the Netherlands in July 2010. I bought it in April 2014. Since 2014 the Lupo has taken me to countries such as Germany, Luxembourg, England, Wales, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Poland and also the Czech Republic. Northern Spain in particular was a joy to cross (see photo at the deer statue). The model number 3L stands for a diesel consumption of 3 liters per 100 kilometers. In reality, fuel consumption ranges from 3 to 5 liters per 100 kilometers, depending on wind, temperature and whether or not you are in a hurry. Options This model is equipped with all possible options that a 3L could be equipped with at the time. - Air conditioning - Central locking with remote control - Electric windows - Electric sliding / tilting roof - Electric mirrors - Front fog lights - Heated seats - Heated windscreen washers - Heated wing mirrors - Parcel shelf (was also an option!) - Power steering - Remote Alarm - Seat airbags Modifications Since purchase in April 2014, various madifications have been made, such as replacing the gray interior with a fresh red / gray interior, installing headrests in the rear seat, installing cruise control and remapping the engine with improved software (see photo power graph). The remap has upped the power from 63 hp/145 Nm to 91 hp/210 Nm, making it a nippy motorway flyer. Service Over the years, extensive maintenance has been carried out, with no shortcuts in quality. All services receipts are present, as well as the fuel receipts, photos and all kinds of documents related to this Lupo. Except of its service history: gearbox rebuild by 3L specialists Ecomotive, cat delete downpipe installed by 3L specialists JB Autoservice, periodic transmission base settings (carried out every 15,000 km instead of the recommended 30,000 km!) by 3L specialists EJR Autotechniek. Engine oil is changed every 15,000 km with Castrol Edge Professional Longlife III FST 5W-30 fully synthetic. Small niggles The Lupo shows age-conform signs of wear. There is a scratch on the passenger side front wing and a dent in the passenger side sill. Oil consumption is about 1 liter at 2,000 miles. The timing belt needs replacing. The drivers side door catch is defective. Drivers side seat heating lower section does not work. The sliding/tilting roof needs adjusting because it may leak. Power steering occasionally throws an error code.

  2. Just trying to find out what year onwards the 1.4s cars became fly by wire rather than cable. Or if someone could please tell me what mine is that would be even more useful, it's a 53 plate. Thanks in advance for any responses 👍
  3. Hi, had a look round but can't seem to find an answer to this... My Lupo gti is going to be more track focused from now on, so I'm wondering if there is a better radiator than the OEM one? Want to make sure the car keeps cool on track. Any help or ideas would be appreciated!
  4. Evening all, Here is my Lupo 1.0. Are there any suggestions that could be made to improve the car? I've just got a new set of doors with electric windows so I will wire them up and a new bumper and indicator grill. I also have a subwoofer, wired up some front fogs and wired up some DRL switchbacks. Other than that, what can be done?
  5. Hello! Just after some ideas on sorting out my Lupo! I've just got a 1.4 75bhp 16 valve 2001 reg with 103,000 on the clock and I've been wanting to rebuild the engine. I've been looking at changing the engine for something a little quicker but I've been wondering about just rebuilding this one with some performance pistons and some fast road cams etc etc. does anyone have any suggestions aside from this? Obviously I would be adding a performance 4 branch manifold and a full stainless system with a sports cat etc, but any ideas would be much appreciated! Also, what kind of power output could I expect from the 1.4 16 valve engine? Thanks, Amelia
  6. Hi, I am selling a set of Schrick fast road cams for a lupo sport.

Description: 244° Schrick fast road camshafts Location: Rotherham, South Yorkshire Postage: £15 or Collection Price: £300 Contactable on here or on 07903203303 Matt
  7. Hey guys, this is my first car, a 2006 VW Urban Fox 1.2 in Uranium Grey. The cars done 34k miles and its perfect for what i need it to do. Ive had it about 2/3 months now and as a car guy i'm ready to start work, the only thing has been money but thats getting sorted. ive done what i can for now with limited resources etc but ive managed to black out the VW badges, take off the other badges, take off the door trims and keep the car looking as best i can for the time being. the shortlist includes coil overs, head unit, alloys (16/17") exhaust, fog light installation, 20mm spacers and smoked lights and tints. Watch this space! big things are about to happen! any recommendations or questions welcome Callum
  8. Hi guys, I have been given a universal back box and really want to fit it, I've seen a few lupos where the tip sits underneath the bumper. I was wondering how you actually do that? I've got a 1.4 75bhp model. Any help will be much appreciated!
  9. Hello, Wondering about a 1.0 Lupo and a middle exhaust like the GTI version, i`m wondering if anyone has made there exhaust in the middle or have they put the gti bumpers on a non-gti lupo, this properly sounds stupid but if i could get any advice on this it would be great. Cheers
  10. Hey guys, I'm pretty rubbish at using the search bar and I was wondering (if it hasn't been done before) what kind of power can be achieved from a 1.4s 75bhp engine without being boosted? Help much appreciated. Kay.
  11. After much thought about exactly how much power I want from my loop I decided.. I want lots more!! So the small power increses have got to be flogged to fund the next idea! Here I have a Polo 16v afh inlet manifold and throttle body, both in excellent condition with no running/ idle issues (common with these throttle bodies!) I include the fuel rail, injectors & fuel pressure regultor all working 100% and quite important to run along side with. Direct bolt on replacement for 16v lupo as a performance enhancement, easy to fit, I done it and I'm female and self taught! Noticable power gain, will be a more effecient gain if once fitted, having the vehicle then remapped
