looks good.

Most of the guys obscure the no plate on a car when posting the pics to try to prevent people using it elsewhere - just in case.

Some of the shots in the gallery are quite Arty - hobby?

It kills me!

Once the warrenty is out the window, im looking into transplant a 1.8T out of a TT.

Insurance is a killer at the moment thats why I got the 1L.

Welcome mate,

Here is a pic of a polo with the 1.8T engine out of it. I dunno about the size of the engine bay, but if it can fit in the polo, it can probably fit in the lupo cant it??

And Here is a link to another converation we had about this sort of thing, if you are intrested.

Cheers Wopps beerchug.gif

From what ive read it is a pretty big job, but the hardest part is getting all the 1 off parts ie. mountings, hoses etc

there is a company who offers a drive in, drive out service for £10k they do everything from engine, gearbox. Brakes and susspention. Still a bit steep for me, Id rather souce my own engine.

That engine bay looks mint though dont it. I dont think it is a Polo, it looks like a Lupo from the shap of the bonnet and side repeters.

A lad on corsacrazy chopped it yesterday, I just like the mirrors, bumper and skirts. Im gonna stick with silver as theres not many silver Lup's about, and I agree about the wheels, Im thinking about a set of polished deep dish

OO sory i didnt know you were tlaking about the clour for you, i was just being biased. In that case i agree entirly. Your photoshop bodykit does look good though, espeshally with the R32 front bumper, and focus RS vents. Is that the one you are thinking of getting then?? beerchug.gif
