    I always remember Victoria Wood's comment about Readers' Wives many years ago, viz.
    "The thing that intrigues me whenever my boyfriend shows me Readers' Wives is how many ugly headboards there must be in this country."

    Re: MY VR6 SOON TO BE R32 CORRADO

    Hi James,

    I also have a R32 motor that I was going to put into my Golf Mk2 which currently has a 2L motor. My Corrado has a 2.9 VR6 motor. Now I have been thinking that the R32 would probably do much better in the Corrado.

    Please let me know how yours turns out and what needs to change.

    Thanks,
    Jonathan
