Any newer owners don't seem to join up here and just gravitate to social media. It's also either linked to your personal account, or you need to set up a second one just for the groups.

    I find there's also a lot of bad advice on there, and endless posts of pictures of alloys that are way too big for the car and parts being sold with scene tax added etc.

    It's a shame really because having owned a MkII GTI, Audi Quattro and the VR, I've always found the various forums to be really helpful.
    Have seen some really poor advice on Facebook.Some people think that have a road wheel at a strange angle is really cool,looks like it has a bent axle

    Agreed on the big wheels and mega drops - looks silly and can't be the right geometry for the wishbones etc.

    Hello keyo

    we are all hoarders now with corrado parts !! with regards to these parts i have a car here for parts and these are still attached and intact (i will have to confirm this) but how do you remove them without breaking them as they are plastic and almost 30 years old

    Agree with much of what other posters have said. I havent used facebook in years and think this forum (along with the CCGB)is an excellent resource/community. However, it is definitely pretty quiet these days. I regularly look and aside from the odd parts request/sale there isn’t much happening. Then I think to myself that I dont post much these days either. A vicious circle! So, if anyone who has posted on this thread makes an effort to be more proactive then maybe we can generate aome footfall/energy?

    I think this sums it up, I've tried to use FB a few times for classifieds etc, but just can't figure it out, stuff you post seems to disappear almost instantly and I've no idea how to search for stuff etc. However, forum classifieds are completely dead, so I'm stuck paying ebay / paypal horrendous fees to get rid of stuff, which ultimately just makes parts more expensive as you try to cover some of your costs.

    I remember back in the day when you'd post stuff on the Ed38 classifieds and it'd be on page 2 or 3 within a couple of hours! Bring back those days, the forums were brilliant

    I'm here most days... FB for me is just a pile of steaming brown! for serious advise the forum is the only place.

    I don't see why it would need to die however quiet it got? - we must be able to rustle up the hosting costs between everyone? or maybe join up with the Scirroco forums? they are saying the same thing.

    That's a good point actually, if we merged a few forums of the same marque we would get a lot more traffic in one place

    Just don't post on facebook…….


    Support this forum by being a donator.


    CCGB should thrash out a deal to use this forum for ALL their business even if it means some of it is password protected.


    The following for these cars now simply isn't big enough for the "them and us" to continue.

    These are all good points - I think a merger of some sort with another site like CCGB would be worth considering. It would also be nice to host a lot more reference content - for example. take a look at the German Corrado forum, there's a lot of info to browse on there before you even dive into the forums.
