    Clean looking 1800 valver

    Not mine, but shows how nice these cars are with subtle mods

    Absolute bargain compared to a MK2 golf 16V and handles better. Few faults mentioned but I'm sure they could be rectified.

    Shame the rims have been painted. The factory finish on those ATS Cups is awesome. Nicest looking wheels I've ever seen.

    I can't decide if they suit the Corrado, but put them on a MK1 GTi and they look super sweet.

    I think the 16V need to be safe guarded because they are most lighly the ones to be stripped, I bet they are all ready the rarest model in the Corrado line up to date ?

    Not as rare as the 2.0 8 valve, if you exclude special editions.

    I was reading up on the 2.0 8V and I believe they uprated the engine because they had to fit a Cat to apply to new emission laws and the variation lost a lot power therefore introduced the 2.0 8V.

    I believe the 8v was only sold in the UK.
