    I was walking through down town Gedling last night to a rather good Indian restaurant called Singh's and this little yellow (ish) Lupo went past me bouncing, scraping and barking its way up the road with this spotty ***** and his bird inside, my heart went out to the poor little car, it did not deserve such a fate....

    I can't remember the prefix properly, it was a letter then 7 UPO. P7UPO is an AER engined 99 model, in white as you say. A7UPO is a yellow 2000 model 1.4 so it may have been that one, it was dark. I can't remember the reg of the one I saw in Gedling with the young lad in, I was more interested in my curry. H is on a silver 2002 GTI, J is on a red 1 litre 99 model, L is on a very late red GTI, P is on a white 1 litre 99, Y is on a silver 2001 GTI.
