TDI(s): Lupo 3L
Default VW Lupo 3L TDI

Hello everyone! First post on this forum, here are some pics of my Lupo 3L that I have had for about 2 years now.

It was completely stock when I got it, and it looked like this:


Now, after some minor mods, it looks like this:




This tiny 1,2litre car has now done over 250,000 miles in the last 11 years

Nice Lupo!

Did the transmission give any trouble during those 250k miles? We never got this in the UK (only the 1.4 TDI). Wish we did - I'd love to steal the aluminium body panels off a written off 3L, put them on a 1.4 TDI and tune it up to around 160bhp. Would make a nice little pocket rocket

You can remap the 1.2 TDI to around 80bhp I believe. Would probably help with MPG too.

Looks great. I bet the 1.2 TDI helps avoiding a part of the brutal Norwegian taxes too?

I've just had the car for the last 7,000 miles of its life, but I was told from the previous owner that it is infact on its original gearbox and turbo

And the fact that it is stock and not remapped/tuned is pretty much why I think Would love some more power, but I think that it will put a lot of extra strain on a car that has already done very close to 400,000km (just 1500 to go)

It is in fact quite nippy once its in motion, not from a standing start, but from 40-60mph it is on par with for example a Golf 1,9tdi 90hp

Thanks Yes, it really does. Since Co2 emissions are heavily taxed here, the very low emission figurs for the 3L (81g/km) helps cut the taxes by a great deal, since cars with 100g/km and less have cuts in the taxes. And since the 3L has the lowest emission numbers of all cars, including hybrids, the tax cut is almost the same value as the taxes on weight and horsepower, so almost no taxes at all on this car Well except the 25% sales tax on whatever you paid for the car in the country you bought it in.. Nothing is for free over here...

Does the real world fuel consumption live up to the claims?

It was a real shame about the Oslo bombings. Wishing a speed recovery to those affected.

It's not far off actually, but I think the car is a bit affected by its mileage, it has done 399.000km now, and I've seen how new injector nozzles help restore the original mpg figures on worn engines. But anyway it now does about 3,9L/100km instead of 3,0/100km. And the cosumption went up a bit when I replaced the skinny low resistance tires on superlight stock magnesium rims to wide low profile tires on heavy Porsche 16" rims.

So all in all I'm pretty happy with that

Mind you, I think I have more power in the rear of the car than in the front, haha



And a pic of the engine, 3 cylinder TDI compared to 3 rotor rotary from my old car

Fuel Economy: Is just one piece of the puzzle that is our bottomless appetite for oil. Cars donít have to be consumable. Instead of throwing them away, we can rebuild them, better. We have the technology.

Yep, 20B goodness Had the cosmo for many years, struggling to get it registered (not easy on japanese imports), so in the end I sold it to a friend who wanted it only for its engine. Its now being tuned to 600+hp and will end up in a RX7 or 8, depending on what he decides on in the end

The only thing I would change are Lupo GTI xenon headlights
Can you show dashboard pictures? I LOVE the look of the 3L steering wheel.

i had fewer dashboard shots than I thought But here is a few from the day I bought it (before I cleaned the interior):







I have changed the seats (the were DONE after 250 000 miles) with some classic Recaros (w/armrest), much nicer to sit in now

Very nice! Reminds me of the Bistar rims from a Passat.
