2005 Lupo GTI

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I'm considering selling my Lupo GTi.

I Imported this 2005, 6 Speed Lupo Gti myself from Japan early last year after searching for quiet awhile, as a result of living its life in Japan the car is very clean and the underside is practically like new. In my ownership I quickly set about tiding up and upgrading it leaving the car wanting for nothing.

NCT : 06/20
Mileage : 157000 Km

Bodywork is virtually unmarked, barely even any stone chips, no door dings or scratches. I'm fussy and to be honest the car may aswel have driven out of the showroom, the only point worth noting is that the spoiler has a few paint blisters in it as is common with these but not very noticeable.

All the aluminum panels are still in-situ, a magnet can be provided to check ha.

The only addition I've made are a set of Cambridge tail lights.

Wheels look to have been recently re-furbed as there is no curbing or damage on any of them. They are shod with Toyo Proxes T1r's.

Interior is in great condition with minimal wear to touch points, the seats are great and, firm and supportive. My criticism of the interior is that the door cards could do with replacing the plastic tabs, I have the tabs but haven't got around to doing this yet.

The car has been upgraded with a bluetooth head-unit allowing music streaming and making calls.

Mechanically the car is faultless, when I brought it in I had it booked into Tom Fahys Garage for a full service, and at the same time had the timing belt, water pump, Aux Belt and coolant flush @145k km, a noisy alternator was re-furbed at the same time and two front tow eye covers where painted. The only advisory they had on the car was to replace the two front brake hoses, which I had done with new break fluid.

I returned the car for a full suspension refresh/upgrade with Fahy Garage in October last year.

In this refresh every bushing was replaced, to much to list but the photo above will explain, all parts had been replaced with Lemforder parts

Upgrades done at this time included,

·         Bilstein B8 Shocks

·         Eibach Springs

·         Whiteline RARB

·         H&R Spacers on the front


Whilst this work was going on I had the brakes upgraded using the G60 Caliper Carriers, these where fitted with 280mm front disks and pads.
The power steering fluid was also changed at this time.

Car has received an Oil change and new spark plugs at 154km, a BMC CDA carbon induction kit was also fitted at this time.

All original parts will go with the car.

Thanks.

Price £4,000
