  1. Hi All The VR6 is planned to go in for an underside restoration over winter & i am about to embark on buying parts in preparation. Plan is to drop everything off, blast & powder coat anything that can be & then buy new where needed - bushes, running gear, front wishbones, brake lines etc Has anyone here tackled similar & have any info on parts & part numbers & where to go for them? Randomly off the top of my head in no order Front top mounts front wishbones with bushes (is it worth getting R32 bushes?) drop links CV boots steering rack boots front disc back plates possibly new discs & pads all round rear top mounts rear beam bushes rear disc plates exhaust hanger rubbers thats about all i can think of, if anyone can think of other bits pls chip in, it would be appreciated oh - anybody know if KW offer a refresh service for their coilovers? thanks in advance
  2. try this search result string vw corrado heater blower motor - Google Search try to go for the higher powered version as there are 2 types available
  3. interesting - yes m8 hence the thought as i may refresh discs & pads in the winter when it goes in for the underside refresh in the winter why not go bigger disc if possible eh lol
  4. tasty! i went for the 4 pots as had to run the speedline but ive finally got the wheels i want for the VR6 i wonder how much of a bigger disc i could fit under the 16" modena's in comparison to the 15" speedlines - may have to call HiSpec for a chat
  5. looking good - are they the 6 pots? ive got the 4 pots from HiSpec & love them 🙂
  6. i did think i could help but id read it wrong, thought it was the actual parcel shelf you needed
  7. i think they are referring to the fact that there are different speeds of USB cable, ideally you want a USB 3 if possible as these can handle a higher data throughput however, it may be that whatever you are using is not corrado compatible IIRC you cant read much through the OBD1 port
  8. only just seen this post - ive got a full guide with pics on how to do this job so much easier with dash fully out i email it out on request
  9. ha ha ha that is one hell of an expensive way to do it but also a very good one!! i could only afford the V1's but they have seen me perfect for about 75K miles so far
  10. hi chris good idea but in all my years of corrado-ness 17's & upwards kill the ride & handling there are people that run them & i guess it depends if you are going for look or for performance IMO, & im sure many of the long term members here would agree from their experience, that 16" is the biggest you want to go i have a feeling that you can actually still buy a 16" speedline brand new i also think that the group buy here many years ago for Compomotive Mo 5's were in a 16" but may have been 15
  11. not sure - it was £400 for the rolling road setup but this was a long time ago
  12. when i had my head rebuild at stealth i dropped schrick 263's in there, BMC CDA & then vince mapped it - ended just shy of 210bhp this was with OE exhaust as i hadnt yet put the longlife SS on it the way the new map performs in comparison to OE is superb
  13. ahhh reading all these comments does make me smile - i will pass on the thanks & happiness to Kurzy 😄
  14. great news guys, im glad they are all arriving quickly i hope you are all happy with them yes the maker lives pretty much a the end of the country up in scotland lol
  15. sweet!! that was properly quick postage - hope you are happy with it by all means let me know if you have any questions about fitting it
  16. update - happy friday all! all looms are tested, ready & packed he is planning to tale them to the post office this morning & will let me know once done 🙂
  17. thank you to everyone for paying so quickly - that is everyone paid 🙂 i believe Kurzy is trying to get all of the looms finished & posted this week, im sure he will let me know when they are
  18. good question - i cant say i have ever checked for them i didnt realise it had a tweeter setup in the front but i do know a previous owner had done some form of rewiring to the door speakers im thinking of pulling some of the dash out & then completely redoing the the door speaker wiring with some decent cable like i have running to the rear 6*9's
  19. when i got my kit from them i just told them the year & model of vehicle & they had a list to match it up IIRC i had a guide of steps to follow when using their products but cant remember if they gave it me or i got it elsewhere just give them a call m8 - they were based down the road from me so i just popped in to see them & they were very helpful
  20. having read this thread - would i be best to rewire my JL audio 6.5" front direct to head unit? AFAIK they are connected to a thicker audio wire which comes out of the door as such i dont know if this looping to tweeters is still in place - if im honest i didnt even know the wiring did that lol
  21. thank you to everyone so far for the payments so quickly 🙂
  22. thanks everyone 🙂 thanks to JJBRADO for their payment too
  23. hi all - i am happy to say that ive had an update from Kurzy on the looms 🙂 he is back from his offshore work, the OE connectors arrived whilst he was away & he has started to finish the looms straight away half are tested & ready with the other half being completed this week thank you everyone for your patience the remaining balance is £59 if you could pls send the paypal friends & family to [email protected] once sent if you could then put a confirmation on here i can keep a track of it happy days
