Micrafish's 1999 VW Lupo

I know I know, I've strayed from Jap - not by choice, may I add. I searched high and low for a Micra in the ideal spec I wanted, and with limited time constraints, could not find one!
So I went for the Pooloop, and a change.

Nothing special, a 1999 1.4 E; with about 75bhp of rip-snorting firepower, but it goes well enough! No leccy windows or mirrors, spartan as it comes really! Not even the stereo works properly (so much for my daring venture out of Jap, huh!)

Plans are:
Fix stereo wiring, this has been diagnosed as the problem.
MAYBE put Lupo GTI springs on it
And paint the steels. Maybe.

That's pretty much it! With my new job coming up, this will go in the new year for something more quiet, more comfier and more frugal! And with a working stereo!!

So pics:





And, the mad interior!



Nice place to be at night, with blue and red spangly lights every where!
All in all, a fairly fun car. Will be heading Jap again though in the future!

I did contemplate doing something like that to it, but I think I'm just going to get the stereo working and that's it - I don't intend to keep it for too long! As long as it keeps running until I get rid of it then I'll be happy :laugh:

That's very nice Nicki (cute even :blush:). Now you just need to buy a Passat 1.8T that's been rear-ended and swap the engines :laugh:.

:p
I would if I could be bothered lol This is just going to be an A to B car until I can afford to get something else next year - I doubt this one will manage the commute to Reading forever lol
