    30 Years of The Corrado

    Okay,

    So saw this posted a few days ago over instagram.

    Apparently it is bundled with the latest edition of VW PERFORMANCE (US BASED)

    Anyone know anything about this and possibly where to source in the UK??


    Looks like a seriously good read!

    Did anyone find some of the "facts" incorrect?

    Spoiler goes up at 45mph?
    Cruise control?

    I'm sure there were others but can't remember off the top of my head now.

    I did notice some errors, so seems to have been a slight rush with the research compiled however they are covering both UK & US readers.

    My spoiler goes up at 45mph on my 93 VR and also did the same on my 91 G60.

    Cruise control I think was a US option can't be sure though.

    Was personally a tad disapointed with the Mag however it is only a supplement and I certainly got a little too excited for what it was.

    Agreed, didn't really feel it was good enough to be making a supplement magazine out of, especially considering they were 'shouting' about it being the 30th anniversary. Hey ho.

    Yeah, seems to be just a brief acknowledgement more than anything.

    Cruise control was pretty much standard in the US, and a rare option in the UK and bit more common in Europe. Most automatics would have had it fitted.

    The spoiler up speeds varied according to market and model years - you can change them by swapping out the control relay with a different one.
