    The "rarity" aspect feeds into my point that a Storm needs to be original. I'm not aware of any Storms having been ordered with any factory extras apart from what was in the brochure, except for the Diavia aircon, which was fitted by the dealers in the UK.

    The strangest part was that VW were quite happy to supply the badge kits over the counter without needing a chassis number or proof of ownership - over the years we've seen quite a few fake cars, especially in green.

    The problem with the mystic blue is when it ages a bit it almost goes like a pink/ purple off colour. I like the the real dark blue like a midnight blue they had on the 964.

    Yeah that's it class colour. My dream car would be a 993 C2S in that colour.

    It's purely a badge. But a badge that does indeed make it a bit rarer than a regular VR6. I think it helped that the MK1 and MK2 Scirocco's had both had Storm models too so the name had some heritage.

    Mystic Blue does look good on a Corrado too, as do Solitudes...

    But the real holy grail is, for me, the Campaign. I'd love to own one of those, even now.

    Yeah, the Campaign is a proper special edition - for rarity's sake though I'd rather have an original VWM VSR.

    The G60 Jet was kind of a limited run out budget edition in Europe. I don't think there were ever any specials in the US/Canada.

    Very rare but I don't like the interior bit to ornate for my liking, call me boring but Ill stick to black leather.

    Personally I’d like to own factory Nothelle VR . That must have cost some dough in the 90s .

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    Campaigns are more rare than a VWM VSR though.

    I know they're not, but it sure seems like it considering how few ever come up for sale. I've had cash saved twice for one, and spent it again on other things because I never had a chance to buy one!
