That one has been on ebay several times recently, will probably be back on there soon by the looks of it.

I would probably pay 600.

But I would continue to throw miles on it.

An agg engine or a 2e will do many miles.

An abf will want rings by 180k.

Too many cars.

Wait till the polo, TT and probably the MK4 golf have gone.

You brought up the topic of MK3 golf so you tell me.

Polo and mkIV are boring cars.

Knowing how long a Lupo GTi will last is interesting.

I would be tempted to ask how many engines to get to that mileage

I've seen an ABF on 500k+ on original everything. Only water pump was changed. Taxi...!

But not when they are diesel, I have two TDI's one on 175k the other on 167k expect them to outlive the body work

I'll argue this three pot diesel longevity.

I've changed an engine in one.

They sound like a tractor after a while.

SDI though, durable

If well kept, SDi's will last forever.

What's surprising is that GTi's tend to last for quite long as well :)

Gtis will outlive every Lupo model. they are so desirable, so collectable that people who cherish them will quite simply keep them (in good condition) forever. They'll be discovered in barns and in locked bunkers in fifty years. There'll be one discovered at the back of a hay shed, with chickens roosting in the footwells...

would love to have one, but I have just way too many cars now.
