VOLKSWAGEN LUPO 1.0MPI SE
The interior is in good condition for the age of the vehicle. The seats are very clean and show little sign of wear. The vehicle has room for four adults and although basic, is a typically solid Volkswagen finish. The windows are manual as are the locks, but the sound system has been updated to a face off CD player and MP3 Aux Jack. The interior has headrests back and front, as well as the driver’s seat benefiting from height adjustment and the front cabin has twin airbags. The only obvious faults are the knob from the driver’s door window being missing, but the arm is still there and allows opening and the heating fan requires a resistor. This means the fan is either off or on full. The part required is £17 on Ebay. Otherwise the interior is very well appointed and needs no cleaning after collection.
The body is the weak link in the vehicles armour. Having been repaired over the years, there are areas or rust. The worst is on the drivers side sill and rear wheel arch. A patch has been applied to the jacking point and this repair has caused the spread of rust to the area. However the sill is solid and the finish is ugly more than anything. The only other rust is on the front nearside wheel front arch inner edge. Otherwise there is only parking dents and age related scratches. Being finished on the flat black, it does show up the marks worse than the lighter paint colours.
The car also has Volkswagen alloy wheels and colour coding to the Mirror housings and door handles.
The vehicle has a
valid MOT certificate until the 9th October 2013 and road tax until 31st of December 2013. The vehicle has covered 92122 miles.
The advisory at the time was deterioration the exhaust system.
The vehicle’s previous owner was a mechanic and therefore a lot of work has been carried over the last few months. The exhaust system has been replaced with a full stainless steel unit. It is louder than I would prefer, but could be removed and sold for profit, with a standard aftermarket system. I might add the exhaust still has a catalytic converter.
This year the vehicle has had the Timing belt and Tensioner kit replaced, Auxiliary belt changed and benefited from a full service. This included all filters, plugs and Oil changed.
The braking system has also been overhauled and the front discs and pads replaced, rear drums adjusted and a brake fluid change. Whilst doing this the rear wheel bearings have also been changed.
The front wishbone arms, including ball joints, have also been replaced.
The clutch and gear change is clean and smooth and the engine pulls well. With the exception of a few creaks and rattles from the trim, the car goes well and there is no obvious suspension clunks or knocks. However please bare in mind the car is 11 years old.
Viewing is always recommended before placing a bid, that way you can have no illusions about the vehicle and build your own opinion of its condition.
