Hello fellow VW owners, this is my first post so not sure if I'm doing this right!

I bought myself a 2001 Lupo S 1.4 75bhp around xmas time 2014 and never realised there was an owners club for it. It's my first car and was the cheapest car to insure for me (still cost me £1800 to insure it with a telematics black box) so still not cheap!

Love the car to bits even though it needs some bodywork (I'll post pics if you guys wanna see) and I think its got an ECU fault and it makes a weird gargling/murmuring/chugging sound when you start and idle it when its cold. Apart from that it runs a treat!

Hope to meet the regulars and get stuck in!

Welcome!

Always good to show pictures.

I know how you feel paying that first years insurance! :/

Is your engine management light on? If so may be a good idea to get it scanned, otherwise it may be a guessing game to find out what's wrong with it

Welcome to the group! Hopefully you can have a look around and search for mods. The how to section is a brilliant start to read (where applicable) and a lot of people are willing to help. I also read members rides which are always very informative.

Hope you catch the bug and hope to see pictures

There is a how to for that too!

Ouch patroddy! Cant imagine how that felt lol! I actually bought the car with all the dents it has (Cat C) because its got FSH and 31000 miles and only cost me £600!

The marks were caused by the guys wife who I bought the car off xD
