Lupo in NZ?
« on: February 03, 2005, 02:31:51 pm »
I remember reading there was a Lupo in Auckland. I think I saw a blue on getting onto the motorway at Western Springs.

Is the one in Auckland blue? I wasnt quite sure if it was a Lupo or a Polo.

Must have been the one I saw.

I was about 100m away and it just looked a bit different.

I wish I saw the front! Thats the best bit!

Hi,

I see the blue Lupo quite often in Herne Bay area. 

Would love a Lupo GTi for round town.

Hi all,

I saw this car a few years back also, parked on Orakie Rd in Remuera. Sort of a "purply blue" colour. It would look nice with a few cm out of the ride height on some 13x8 splits ;-))

Are there any others? Or any 2dr late model Polos (pref GTi)? The reason I ask is my g/f and I are starting to look for a new car for her and would prefer VAG but everything seems to be 4dr in our market. I mean each to their own but IMHO 4dr hot hatches are are about as cool as a pink Hummer!

Im pretty sure all the NZ new Polo GTIs were 4 door, just like the mk5 gti :(

Yeah, all NZ new Polo GTIs are 5 doors. I have seem a few 3 door GTI imports though.

Hi, Have a Lupo coming from Japan for my fiancee. Its just a 1,4 comfortline but if I can find a GTI i'll get that instead. They are a cool looking little car. Still this will do for now, guess i'll just keep looking untill one pops up.

Spotted a dark green Lupo (base model) parked in takapuna at the weekend, couldnt get close to see if it was auto or manual as the old biddy in it was was waiting for hubby.

Spotted a 3door red new Polo Gti (1.8t) too.

Good to see more Lupo's are around

I have seen a few new Polo GTI's, but none in 3Dr
