    quick-guide to storms

    ok here is a guide for all you non-storm owners or people who are prepared to pay "premium" prices for a couple of badges


    now i'll make this very clear now...........as much as this may seem that i am slating the storm model i wouldn't change mine for anything,but it really amazes me how people will just limit their choice for the stormover a sometimes better-specced/better condition non-stormVR..........i too did just do that when i was looking for a Corrado VR6 but i landed lucky and bought mine at VR6 money

    ok here goes

    Bodywork/exterior
    mystic blue paint(stormonly) or classic green (both pearl effects),
    colour coded grille(if its the original grille only the botom slats will be open,
    chrome Corrado,VR6 badges(front and rear),
    Storm badge to rear(in red),
    15inch "BBS" solitude alloy wheels(BBS or VW centre caps)
    50mm front lip spoiler(tho this AFAIK was a 94> change and is not exclusive to the storm)

    Interior
    storm badge on centre console(in place of Karmann badge)
    black heated leather seats(mystic blue) or beige heated leather seats(classic green) both standard VW sport-seat design,all door cards also with leather & "leatherette"
    black dashboard(both models)
    black plastics,carpets & parcel-shelf(mystic blue)biege plastics,carpets& parcel-shelf(classic green)
    Sony CD-tuner
    Full electrics

    Mechanicals/Engine/Running gear etc
    nothing just the same ABV VR6 engine found in all the other VR Corrado's,likewise suspension and gearbox

    Misc.
    only available from APR 95>(M,N & P-reg)last one built will have been built in JUN/JUL 95
    there will be no mention whatsover that it is astorm in the log-book either
    A/C wasn't standard or a factory option either.......just a dealer-fit/aftermarket option
    and of the total run of 500.....250 were of each colour and (not 100% on this one)10 of each colour were available as automatics
    Rodders
    LC6U-Classic Green
    VR6 Storm

    no they were never MADE in P-reg......just some were still un-registered when P-reg came about,afterall Corrado production was stopped the month or so before N-reg came out

    Hmm, the original owner of mine said the car was sold as they received it, complete with red calipers.

    Didn't the storm featured on the old UK corrado club website have a close up of the alloys showing them too?

    it is possible that the car you have has had the calipers painted red but this was not done at the factory and was not a stormfeature of either colour,and you are correct the storm that was featured on the CCGB website did have coloured calipers but this wasn't a VW promotional pic so its more than likely that they were done after delivery...........as there is a picture of a mystic blue storm in the official stormbrochure which shows the calipers to be the standard factory finish silver

    The CCGB site pics of the Storm were mostly Guy Hartley's - and his Storm is far from standard....
