Thread: 1996 Corrado VR6 for sale

  1. #1

    1996 Corrado VR6 for sale

    Sadly I need to sell my Corrado VR6 Mark 2 as I need a car with more space for luggage. It has done 122,000 miles and is in good but not perfect condition. It goes well and has comfortable leather seats.
    The brake pipes and the rear beam bushes were replaced in 2010, other parts have been replaced from time to time, and in June 2017 a couple of ABS sensors were replaced together with the ignition coil pack, sparkplugs, HT leads and battery. The MOT is dated 28 June 2017. The rear spoiler works well but the sunroof has recently got too stiff.
    It includes four spare 15 inch 6.5J Speedline wheels and four other VW wheels.
    I would like it to go to an enthusiast but it is challenging to set a price. I have in mind £3,900 or offers.
    I'm based in Bath and you can contact me on 07870 681747.

    A picture of the engine bay and close ups of the bodywork would help the sale.

    OK. Thanks for your advice.
    Here's a picture of the driver's seat. I think it's OK but I suppose it has lost a bit of colour on the bolster.
    And here's the engine bay. It's original. The radiator fan switch and thermostat have been replaced in addition to the items mentioned previously. I've been advised to delay replacing the timing chain as the original is not yet making the thrashing noise that would suggest wear.
    The current MOT certificate advised 'Oil leak' and the oil pressure switch has been replaced to cure this. From time to time in the past it has been suggested that the front near-side and off-side lower rear rubber bushes have 'deteriorated but not resulting in excessive movement' but this has not been mentioned on the current MOT certificate.
    Here's the odometer reading.
    A couple of years ago a few small areas were treated with Jenolite to stop rust and this seems to have been successful although I'm sure you could do the work more elegantly ... there were three small areas around the windscreen and the seams at the rear of the rear wings ... hopefully you can see from the photos ... there are now perhaps half a dozen very small areas where similar treatment will be needed in the future but otherwise the panels all look good.
    Here's my collection of spare wheels. The current front off-side wheel loses a bit of air and, if I had been keeping the car, my plan would have been to choose the four or five best wheels and have them properly refurbished.
    I've owned the car since 2008 and it has been and remains brilliant to drive.
    Thanks again for your comments and please tell me if you want more information ... although actually I don't think there is much more.
