VW Lupo 1.4 old sparkplugs replaced

Driving 140km a couple times per week stresses the car more than you would think. Keeping it in tip top shape is important, even more so with an older car like our VW Lupo which was born in 1999 (1.4 16v, engine code AHW). Less than a year when the last service was done, I checked the spark plugs (as it was starting a bit rough). Look at the picture to understand why…

Please note that I needed to wait before the NGK Iridium sparkplugs (type: BKR6EIX-11 3764) were delivered, So I bent the old one, so that the gap was made smaller.

Sound Proofing the Aygo

The Aygo has pretty flimsy doors, which don’t help much with the sound quality of your sound system & background noise when you are driving your car. I bought some sound proofing on eBay & added it on the front + rear doors & spare tire well.

Sound quality has been improved greatly & road noise has been reduced. All in all a must have mod for your Toyota Aygo / Peugeot 107 or Citroen C1.

A new Woodstove!

We’re very proud to the latest addition to our home, which is now transformed into a cosy home. A woodburner was the missing link in the living room. Filled up the Aygo with wood, so we could finally test it.

Our Ultimate Christmas picture

We bought a woodstove not to long ago and during Christmas I shot the ultimate picture (helped by the Android app Prisma).
