Recommended Posts


Lupo GTi
Moon silver - earlier of the silvers not to be confused with reflex silver
5 speed gearbox
12 months MOT
136k mileage
1 key
17 owners
Full log book
Plenty of reciepts Inc genuine VW parts
HPI clear Inc proof

I have owned the car for around 5 years and in this time I have made it road worthy.

The engine is smooth, doesn't burn oil or coolant and pulls well.

Gearbox is smooth and goes into every gear without any crunches, whining or grinding.

Full cambelt and waterpump 1k miles ago (may 2020)
Brand new genuine VW thermostat housing
Full service (oil, coolant, air filter, pollen filter, fuel filter, spark plugs)
Rebuilt front calipers and carriers (seals and paint)
New Wishbones
New Track rod ends
New Front wheel hubs and bearings
Hub knuckles shot blasted and painted
Driveshafts cleaned and repacked
New Arb droplinks
Lowered on H&N springs
Replaced all 4 Abs sensors
All window switches work as should
Pop out rear windows
New handbrake cables
Check straps repaired (no clunking)
Aluminium doors, wings and bonnet
Seat bolsters have been repaired with new cloth so no holes or tears
Rear quarter panels in very good condition

Please bare in mind the car is now 20 years old and does require some work to maintain the car.

Some rust spots on the tailgate and on the roof gutters.
There are a couple small dents and paint could be refreshed in places.
I have taken off the original Bathurst alloys and replaced with the Cambridge edition.
There's is a small amount of shaking on moving from 1st gear so might need a clutch in the future but is currently not a hindrance.
Starter motor sometimes squeals on turn over which is a common problem but has no ill effect starting.
A previous owner has drilled 2 (6mm) holes on the inside of the doors presuming for tweeters. I have filled these with blanking plugs. A bit of spray paint and they would be a lot less noticeable.
The wheels could do with an alignment. I just never got round to it after changing the suspension components.

The reason for sale is that I have 2 other Lupo GTIs and don't have the space or the time for a third. They are fast becoming a future classic with prices and availability relfecting this.

Brilliant car that handles great.

One of the cheapest GTIs currently on the market.

Car is located in Sheffield 5 minutes from J35.

Any questions please don't hesitate to ask. I have been as honest as possible so that we don't waste my time or yours.

Price reduced to £2000

I have been driving the car more recently and the clutch issue has pretty much resolved it's self. I'm guessing it was because it has stood for a while and needing bedding back in. Not entirely sure but it no longer concerns me.

Anyway, please no more dreamers asking to swap for a Corsa b 😂
