I also found a forum where someone described swapping the auto for a manual. It was also mentioned there that this is the only way to have a manual 3L.
All Lupo 3L are with robot automatic. So you can take the robot changer off and put regular cables or change the whole gearbox. I will not leave the robotic gearbox on because changes take about 0.7 seconds and its not smooth changes.

Found and test droved one that I will most likely buy on monday if all paperwork are in order at the moment we have agreed on 2100€. Lets see if I can drop it even more on monday.

Tomorrow to porsche museum and also mercedes museum

Back to Finland and the trip went fine. First 800 km driven with the car:
Test of fuel consumption:
@ 100 km/h for 100 km was 2.8 l/100km cars fuel consumtion meter
@ 120 km/h for 100 km was 3.5-3.6 l/100 km
rest of the trip on motorways at speeds of 120-155 for most of the time. That car is amazingly quiet at those speeds!.
Tested also the top speed and it was about 170 km/h and the car went like a train at those speeds also.
Total drived distance was 800 km and the calculated fuel consumption was same 4.0 liter/100km as what the computer had calculated. Howeever the speedometer is about 6% off so the true fuel consumtion was about 4.3 l/100km.

My plates are valid also on tomorrow so I will do some trip to get more data on lower speeds.

At least power steering is not working and also the start and stop system is also broken or I dont know how to use it properly. Anyway so Far I have spend about 3100€ for the car and it is truly amazing piece of machine!. It has lots on room inside and it`s very nice car to drive in city and also in motorways. Its not good at high speed cornering but its not designed to be a race car. More story will follow soon...

Nice
I noticed in the pics that the side mirrors are manually adjusted. What about windows? When I was thinking about getting a Lupo it was VERY hard to find one without electric everything, P/S, A/C, etc.

What kind of roads did you drive on? Autobahn? I wonder if the ride would be as nice as you said on Polish roads, with all their potholes? A light car with pumped up tires would just be bouncing around.

Yes mirrors and windows are manual. Mirrors are small but they can be little bit smaller and give better visibility. There is no A/C on the car and the power steering does not work but that does not bother me, because I dont need them so much. 90% of that driving was on autobahns and motorways rest 10% was city driving.

I just made second test drive with current tires @ 100 km/h result was 3.0 l/100km. Before the run I also checked tire pressures and they were very low. 3 were at 2 bar and one at 2.5. Now they all are at 3.5 bars or 51 PSI.

I also took 2.5 hour tour in Poland Gdynia and few other small cities near the harbour. The roads werent in perfect condition and you had lots of small cars there. Anyway its was nice to see some other countries also. I also got "robbed" in bakery. The sum was 9.2 local money and they took 4 euros of it. I though that the course was 1€=4 local money? Anyway food was still half the price what it would have cost in Finland.

Vekke, do you have the VW Self-Study Programme 218 on The Lupo 3L (pdf, 3.2 MB)

If you want it, I can email it to you.

"The engine is shut down automatically when the vehicle is stationary and first gear is selected. The can be started as soon as the driver's door is closed and the brake pedal is pressed."

"What conditions must be met before the engine is shut down automatically?
1. 6a.
The gate selector lever is in position E.
2. 6b.
Economy mode is active.
3. 6c.
The brake must be kept pressed down for at least three seconds.
4. 6d.
The brake pressure switch indicates that a certain brake pressure is being applied to the brakes.
5. 6e.
The ABS wheel speed sensor, as well as the gearbox speed sender and the speedometer sender signal to the system that the vehicle is stationary.
The coolant temperature must be higher than 17 ° C.
The intake air temperature must be higher than 0 ° C.
The auxiliary heater must not be switched on.
The headlights must be switched off.
The alternator load factor must not exceed 55%."

Having the radio on can cause the 3L not to shut down !


"How does the vehicle resume operation?
1. 4.
The driver releases the brake pedal.
2. 5.
The gearbox control unit starts the engine.
The gearbox control unit ends the starting cycle and allows the starter to disengage."



Try to find Self-Study Programmes No. 209 and No. 221.
