    Good move. A true pocket rocket... but your gonna miss your astra!!!!

    I do like the Lupo Gti, especially if it has xenon lights - make them look like a bigger car then they are at night when they are behind you.

    You need to change you sig now...

    i dont think i will miss the astra to be honest.

    they are cracking cars dont get me wrong but i dont think the fun factor is anywhere near this

    i suppose the room may become an issue eventually but 99% of the time i dont need a big car. sitting in the front of the lupo is like sitting in a golf! there is so much room for a small car.

    mine has the xenons and air con! so its all good!

    Got to say, I really wanted one of these when they came out and I was into my small hot hatches. Good wee cars.

    Enjoy

    its good to know that the only mark 4 golf that they reckon is quicker is the r32 and v6 4motions. Apparently these lupos are quicker than the gti turbos, which is nice to know.

    i dont like to compare it to the diesel ones though!
