First Car, First Lupo!


Recommended Posts

Hello!

Been today all the way to Nottingham from St Helens to look at a Lupo, and, well, I bought it! I'm fairly mechanically handy but no idea what to look at with my lupo. Plan to spend some time looking through this forum and learning what I can about my new prized possession.

Here she is:

I have been having a poke around the Lupo and now know it needs pads, discs, drums and shoes! Not too bog a job but what I did notice when I took the rear wheels off is that the hole in the centre of the wheel is much bigger than the hub it should sit on, so all the weight is taken on the wheel bolts, does anybody know if there should be a spacer inside the wheel to make it fit the hub better?

I am also changing all fluids this weekend and checking cambelt condition too.

Hi I'm totally new to this scene

First car bought yesterday, a Vw Lupo, with recaro buckets, lowered on kw coil overs and ronals turbo r10's

Any news on stuff I should look out for?

Thanks

Jack

The fact it's on KWs suggests it's been well looked after, they're not cheap. Standard things to watch out for are pedal boxes, gearboxes & leccy windows.
