Well I bought the switch without any idea if the knobs would come off, let alone fit. You just pull the old one off (VERY big pull), had to trim down the stub a little, the press the new one on.

where did you source the mirror switch?

Fitted programable wiper relay...

40059_421448202193_563967193_4875640_5153109_n.jpg

Complicated to explain what it does, but basically controls the delay on the wipers intermittant setting.

Also had a play with some 3M carbon fibre vinyl...

Yeah it can get a bit like that, just wanted to keep it simple.

Fitted one pop-out, only had them since last Novemberish!

Smashed the glass out, seemed to be the easist way....

Had to drill the holes in the body at the front and fit 'riv-nut' inserts.

Modified the GTI C-pillar trim....

Also switched the wiring to the ABS so you can turn it off, ideal for the snow....

sweet update! i need to pay for and fit my pop outs! haha

Get some good knives, you'll need them!! Glue is a pita to cut off.

Stripped the centre section out of my engine cover too, painting it silver. Also back running 25mm spacers on the rear wheels, track must almost be as wide as the wheel base now. :lol:

Liking the idea of turning the abs off. Would be interested in how you're going to wire it all up.

That is cool. I've wondered if you could fit a stalk like the new Ibizas (and presumably Polos) have with a switch on the top that controls the intermediate setting by fitting an extra relay. Presumably not if you have done it this way. How easy is it to reprogram? Use VAG COM?

Like the ABS switch loom as well. They are brilliant mods.

Smash them out.

I like it too, hopefully it will look OEM+ still.

Cool! Very clever :D

The loom I have made in that pic just plugs into the place of one of the 4 or so ABS fuses. Simple

Looks really nice and some neat touches to :shades:

Thanks. :)

The stalk on the later cars controls part of the comfort control module, which the Lupo don't have. This relay is a straight swap for the Lupo wiper relay, was fitted to Golf Mk3's but fits alot of VAG cars, so no need for VAG-COM.
