    Might well do Si, Im just quizzing him at the moment to make sure they are built exactly to the same specification as the part number and not just fit the VW Iltis. He has all ready told me they fit a lot of different cars from the VAG range and has sold a fair few to Audi owners. .

    Oh right ok.
    I've seen the correct one with bolt for the Corrado made out of stainless steel,
    it's online or Ebay but stupidly expensive something like £40 I'm not paying that.

    Si
    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    They dio remake the screw trumpet a few years back for about £7.00 from classics and the other guide trumpet was obsolete at the time, now it has reversed which is available , they like to warp our minds.

    Right the obsolete screw trumpet.

    Just purchased this off ebay, half the price then others on the market(that includes postage)Just under £20.00

    Looks correct like the corrado one, off an Audi Quattro UR part number. 811823555

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Audi-ur-q...97.m4902.l9144

    Once I have received it I will update this thread, it's down to the end circumference of the trumpet end that stops it pulling through the metal loop.

    You can also purchase it from Germany from Audi Tradition(equivalent of VW classics) might be cheaper its 8.21 euro + postage. Or your local audi might be able to source it for you.

    Part number 811 823 555 is for the early Corrado trumpet guide with bolt, but not sure what difference there is between the later part number 535 823 555 possibly this just superseded the early one, with out seeing them both together I can't say.

    It is an early corrado part number that was superseded in 1991 and the lock rod unlocking loop was also superseded so 50/50 if it fits , the original part numbers were quattros so maybe as the Quattro parts were been made obsolete they updated the part numbers to a Corrado.

    I will update as soon as I have compared them.

    After reading this German corrado forum looks like the trumpet screw part numbers early and late are actually the same part. So fingers crossed.

    Ok good news on the the description here says it fits.

    What you could do is use the unthreaded trumpet and use a bike cable 'grip' at the end. The advantage of that is there is a larger area to grasp the bonnet cable rather than a screw head point cutting into it. I've replaced my bowden cable with a bike cable to sits perhaps more relevant to that setup.
