I sometimes click on the "like" bit of posts just to annoy people

Hand on heart i did smash kristoffers mams flaps in though, then lit up a cigar.

just go and enjoy the car!! i kind of get what you mean though, a nice car is like a expensive wine when you open it you won't want to share it and you would take your time to drink it, when what you realy want to do is down the bottle as you would a cheap one and enjoy it 10times more.

so just go and drive your car everyday, you will enjoy it alot more!

Either sell it, or use it as a second car. I wrecked mine doing over 800 miles per week. The mileage soons racks up, the front end gets peppered with stone chips, i went through 2 windscreens, all the suspension bushes deteriorated rapidly as did wheel bearings etc. It had 72,000 when i got it, and it blew up just over a year later when it reached 120,000 miles. I basically killed it.

I've given it a new lease of life now though, with over double the power and bought a mk4 TDI which laps up those motorway miles!

Either sell it and fund your house purchase then buy another in a couple of years or be really tight i.e not going out for ages and buy a cheap diesel to travel in.

But i am a believer of a car is to be driven not just to be looked at.

I didn't buy mine with the intention of just looking at it, mine is a daily, hence why over the 8 years I've owned her I've racked up 138k miles! I'm intent on keeping mine no matter what, its worth more to me than I'd ever get by selling it.

I say keep it and enjoy it, as others have said, what is the point of owning a car just to say you own one....

It's a car. Enjoy it for what it is. No offence but I hate when people are scared to put mileage on them and actually Use them. It's only a Lupo at the end of the day they are a fairly new car. Not a classic or piece of history and I don't think they will be either, or at least no time soon. It's not going to rust if you use it in the wet like an old car might so get out and enjoy it. Clean it regularly and be a bit OCD with it. Drive it sensibly on the motorway and it will be fine.

No worries mate :)

mines almost at 138k miles now... i bloody love it and it runs sweet as a nut! i never have problems with it. Yeah i admit it needs a gearbox but iv got one in my shed waiting to go on. Not done bad for it to last that long really... dont get me wrong using a car will result in wear and tear and parts will need replacing here and there but have fun in it and enjoy it because they are an awesome car...!

Go out in a blaze of glory, a big bag of sniff, a few bottles of grey goose, a dead hooker (dwarf hooker) in the boot, and then some lesbian Swedish birds up front.

Drive the poor girl to her death or your arrest, its how she would want to go.

Jees, my cars would be really low mileage if i didn't drive them in the rain.

One of my favourite Lupo GTIs and mainly just because of the pic's I see of it being driven and enjoyed:
