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.

VW Lupo Luxury Heater knobs / dials

Added some luxury to the Volkswagen Lupo with some new up-to-date heater knobs / dials. They look a lot better than the stock controls and they also feel better when adjusting the controls. Small DIY modification which only cost about 5 dollars on Aliexpress.
