    Non mechanical parts are not that great either. I fitted new roof tails and the plastic covers a few years back . The roof rubber is split , the caps are now grey instead of black . I also purchased a brand new splitter two years ago , it now looks as old as the car . These are OEM parts not after market. Nothing seems to last nowadays.

    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.
