    Check the compatibility. Even the early VWs with the SCART-type connector didn't actually speak full OBD2 protocols so the reader needs to be aware of this. I've never attempted to get one for a 2.0...

    IMHO it's much more likely this is a result of a sensor fault on the engine. Do you have accecss to a diagnostic code reader? VAG-COM or one of the older two-wire diags tools should be able to query...

    Resistor pack doesn't usually go, it's usually just the thermal fuse on it that goes from fatigue. Replace the thermal fuse (carefully) and you're good. I replaced the heater fan on mine too as it...

    I imagine they'll have to start dealing with the concept of people who have to live within the zone too, like they do with the congestion charge. No idea how much that will cost..

    It isn't calculated it's just based on the manufacturer stated emission rating. The rating scheme didn't even exist when the Corrado was made!

    The 195s are common with all the Golf 2 GTis and a load of other cars, there's LOADS of those about so that size is always going to be cheaper.

    Yeah it's a trade off. Personally found it worth the extra for the quieter ride and more predictable handling. The size of the rim doesn't really alter the cost, it's the quality of the tyre you're...

    Nope, I've only seen the small plastic end piece that clips into the back of the reflector. The bit that disintegrates is the plastic grommet that holds the adjuster screw in the back of the...

    I'm not sure it's massively consistent. My very late VR6 had red VR6 badges front and rear, Chromed Corrado and VW badge. It may well have been a purchaser option.
