It is with deep sadness and definitely most likely regret, that I have come to a decision to sell my Corrado next year.
I have been ummming and arrring about this decision for a good while now, but have always decided to go with keeping him :) I absolutely love this car, but have reason for making this decision. I have within the last week accepted a new job that starts early Jan, that means sacrificing my Summer - which means I won't get much nice dry roads to enjoy with him. I don't get to drive it as much as I'd like as it is, and will be even less so when this new job starts. I have always tried not to drive in wet conditions, especially within the last 2.5yrs when I've been using a company van all the time, so to potentially only have that option when I come back from working in the Summer seems to massively depress me!!
Anyways, it's not 'for sale' right now but this is just a description of the car and what is included for any potential buyers there may be lurking around, who knows right? (I assume and hope this is ok, mods?)
So, it's a late '94 L reg VR6 in Dragon Green Pearl.
I am the 4th owner, although the 1st and 2nd are the same person (car was originally the 1st owners company car, and then he bought it off the company), and the 3rd owner had it less than a year
Both keys present
Mileage is 75,500 (but will change as it will be driven in the meantime, but am on 3,000 mile policy and certainly won't be too much higher)
Black leather Recaro's, fully working heated and movement.
288mm brake upgrade from a late mk3 VR6
Mk4 rear calipers
One of the few DG headlight looms that were made
K&N air filter but original air box comes with it (see parts list below)
DDI clocks, with blue lights and inverted red LCD screens (modern VW/Audi feel, best mod I ever did!!)
Interior switches changed to red LED's
Hard brake lines have all been replaced recently
New drop links, wishbones/R32 bushes, ball joints, handbrake cables in 2010
Smoked/Red rear clusters from ARZ tuning - in my opinion the best looking aftermarket rear clusters, I know Andy (CazzaVR) enjoys them too ;) (originals included)
Smoked side repeaters
Front fogs/indicators have been lamin-x'd in dark smoke
Debadged grill (original included)
Momo Jet 320mm steering wheel
Foxguard alarm (very old, was installed recently after original purchase)
Heko wind deflectors
Currently on RH Cups, VERY recently re-furbed by Lepsons in Swindon to a bright dark chrome
Set of Speedlines in gold which have probably only seen 2000 miles if that since re-furb, perfect coniditon again with pretty much brand new tyres
Service history is pretty much all there up until I owned the car (will have to double check), and since the 1st service under my ownership at G-Werks, and a 2nd at DG early 2010, I have carried them out myself (mainly oil change/filter/plugs)
All the electrics are working as they should, bar the heaters. I recently had the directional control go, have fiddled with the cables so it's directed onto the windscreen but this is something I intend to sort out before any sale, they work on numbers 1-4 fine though.
The Corrado will be MOT'd sometime in April which is probably when I will be looking to sell, so will come with a fresh 11-12month MOT
No doubt there is probably a lot I have missed out, including parts to go with the ol' boy. As said, this isn't a sale advert but a description of what to expect/what is included when I do come to sell. By all means if you are interested feel free to contact me with any questions!!
Absolutely love this 'rado without a doubt, but I feel it needs to be enjoyed more than it currently does. And unless I put it into storage for sometime (which I can't afford) I can't justify keeping it :(
Sad times indeed.
