Gti's have thicker drive shafts than standard Lupos.

You can raise the car up or (not sure if it still passes a mot) get the chassis leg cut to make room for the drive shaft.

It does seem a bit odd.

The front of my lupo was a lot lower than some people who where running into drive shaft issues.

I have no answer.

I just seem to have been lucky.

It's a possibility that the 1.4 non sports and 1.0 models have thinner drive shafts.

I though your post made good points. 1 that the gti driveshafts are bigger. That was the cause. Then you outlined some solutions.

Don't see why not, most repair centres cut holes in the chassis legs to help in pulling them out straight after a front end collision.
