I have it, but I'm not sure what it does, lol. I just assumed it locked the gas cap cover so no one can mess with your fuel.

Jimmy, you (we)don't have it becasue we have wagons (there's no point)...its the lock for the trunk release. This way you can lock the trunk and give the Valet key to the Valet and they won't be able to open the trunk using the release. The Valet key does not work in that key hole.

Heh, true enough, but it was good that I actually got one to read this time - I didn't with the Lupo cos the cocks at the garage I bought it off 'lost' it.

You should just be happy you get to have a Lupo!

I would love to have a Lupo, but once again the good ole USA hates its own citizens when it comes to cars. They punish us.

I dont know Lupo year ranges & "Marks" well enough, but this is my favorite style:



I want one so bad.
