    I use Vehicle Smart app and find it great when searching out prospective daily bangers and keeping track of the fleet in general

    New stereo installed and speakers (to do).

    Stereo is a big improvement over the original Sony tape deck. It's still green illumination and has a nifity Battery Voltage readout too.

    Fixed my battery drain issue - faulty door switch.

    More proper updates to come as it's going in for some major refresh work at Stealth in June..

    Chains, clutch, head refurb, head gasket, new suspesnion bushes, engine mounts, new brakes, abs pump and if I have enough left over a stainless exhaust. Suspect there will be a few other things to replace as they delve in.

    Just some general updates:

    Dropped car off at Stealth yesterday. Horrible drive up there in the rain but stock wipers work fine!

    I have a core list of work and a wishlist if funds permit. Popped another thread up in the engines section to discuss what order to do things on the wishlist if doing piecemeal and sounds like:

    1) 263 Cams (as its all apart and labour is inc in the other work)
    2) Exhaust and remap

    I really need to sort my driver's seat out - padding and support isn't doing it's job anymore and is uncomfortable over long drives. I can feel the metal work on both the bottom part and rear and I'm not that heavy (12.5 stone!)

    Recaro Modulars

    Oh my these are not cheap P but they would look awesome in your Rado.

    Do these fit in the Rado members I see they are used in the VW world.

    Would work with stock rear leather seats and door cards would look perfect.

    Plaid

    Proper Corrado Recaros are heated and have electric adjustment and manual tilt. I wouldn’t pay that for without as when you resell the new owner might not think your investment a wise choice.
    Decisions, decisions.
    But at the end of the day you own it,it’s what you want.
    Proper Recaro Corrado seats are more comfy than standard seats too on journeys over an hour, fact.
    4th one surely the last

    I think they would look brilliant and get a lot of respect as a classy mod, a lot of folks in the Porsche world do this sort of mod to 60K cars, electric seats and heating are not necessary to be fair. Yes the stock Recaro are great as well and much sort after and a stock option.

    Yes mate don't wan't to get in trouble with the other half ! I think the seller does it as living so could knock up a set if commissioned so no rush I guess, does them in yellow plaid as well.

    Found the manufactures site.

    They have quite a lot of variations including alcantara and paid fabric . Also different styles of Recaro seats.
