I've finally sold my b6/7 and decided to go for something abit more economical, its not the a4 but its ****** good fun!! I'm still gonna pop on from time to time and I appreciate all the help and info I've got from all the veterans on here, and no doubt juss will get random texts from me occasionally too, so never fear mate!! Take care fellas. Pete

We should have a sweepstake on what car you got! Polo gti is my guess. :)

Hope you got a decent amount for the a4 mate. And enjoy the new car

Wahooo. So is it a lot of fun then? I imagine it's hugely different to the a4. I know nothing about lupo's, not even engine size or bhp etc. And get some pics up!

thanks buh!! yeah the monos really set it off, plus they're a good speed deterrant coz if you give it beans they catch, and if you go above 30 round a roundabout they catch, basically they catch alot!! might lift it up abit yet, but it looks good at 120mm drop i think!!

So, are they fast then? As mentioned, i have no idea what bhp they produce. Surely it weighs about as much as a shoe box, so should be great fun!

Looks like an ace little car mate! and glad you're enjoying it.

cheers doc, and its a 1.6 16v, 125bhp, 6 speed box, apparently 0-60 in 8 seconds and up to 127mph, but as this one is so low its built to cruise, not to race!! i'm sure if i lifted it it'd be a rocket seeing as half the weight-the rear seats-have been chucked and replaced with a brace bar, looks awesome, think the 1st and possibly only mod will be a fabia rs rear anti-roll bar seeing as everyone who has one seems to swear by how much they change the handling of the car, and hopefully stiffen it more at the back end so that catching the rear arches at roundabouts wont be such an issue!!

Take it to France then mate. Thir motorways are rather nice in places. But I imagine that's boring. You wanna raise it a little and get on a track day.

Is it on coilivers??

Dude, what's mine say ?
Don't higher it! Just get the arches rolled.

Thanks head!! And i'm looking into arch rolling speedy but as the front wings are aluminium I've heard theyr a right nightmare to do, plus i need to find someone to do them, looked at archenemy.co.uk but they're not returning my emails or calls!! So i dunno!! Also I think the rears have been done already, but still catch!! Need to get it up in the air and take a look exactly what damage its doing, but i'm not looking forward to notching the chassis though, that looks like a recipe for a whole load of grief. This is a whole new ball game for me, but I gotta say I can see the appeal to the 'low and slow' look, don't think Ill ever get the 'rat' look though...........
