  1. And then there was three!

    Have not posted for a long time, mainly due to an extended period overseas. The red VR6 is still in hibernation and the silver VR6 is in bits awaiting a re-spray.

    Anyway, back in UK for a while, so I decided to buy a run-around pending completion of the Silver VR6 (getting painted soon) and ended up with a third Corrado, a 1996 8v in Midnight Blue with full leather interior. A dealer demonstrator for 3 months, then the car was owned by a woman (airline cabin crew). She seems to have ...

  2. Mot or no mot

    Hi

    I'm after a bit of feedback on an issue I have.

    I have a 1996 vr6 storm in blue and it has failed it's mot. At the moment I can't afford (the money or time) to mot it (due to my wedding my wife's birthday christmas my the purchase of my new car) and am considering trying to sell it with no mot. The car is tidy and has 126k on the clock. It runs and drives fantastic and has been my daily runner for nearly 3 years. It has been LPG converted so I could afford to keep ...
  3. R32 progress

    Well it's been slow so far, as I have had a few things hold me up. The loom won't work (Mk4 stuff) so I've had to start sourcing Mk5 electrics which as you can imagine isn't easy to find.

    Engine is ready to come out and the new engine is ready to go in, so all in all making good progress.

    Some pics.


    Engine pretty much ready to come out

  5. coil pack advice

    help guys. Ive been having a bit of a cold start and rough idling issue and i'm thinking its the coil pack. I have removed the pack with a view to maybe trying the epoxy fix and discovered that there is no cover on the pack (covers the buzz bars going from the pin socket to the actual coils) hope that desc makes sense.
