    Looking good harrier... your strut caps are nicer than mine can't remember what mine are off, but mine look like plastic cereal bowls,

    I reckon you were scored down on wrong colour screen wash... I always use the blue stuff, hate the yellow stuff unless it's a nugget rado

    Well done chap it looks stunning.

    My strut caps are actually from a Mk4 golf delfinis !
    Thanks for the compliment

    Well after a long winter locked away I decided to pull the Corrado out of the garage this week and address some little issues that needed sorting
    Picked up some new stickers from eBay and put them on



    That was easy

    Also the brake discs were developing a bit of surface corrosion around the outer edges and centres so stripped them off , cleared off the corrosion and painted them in silver
    Pleased with the results
    Look much better



    Also gave the suspension and underside a general going over and clean up
    Going to have a go at sprucing up the leather too
    Bought some gliptone products
    Hoping for some good results with it but will see

    As always the work looks great Daren , hopefully I may see you at a few shows this year



    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.

    Stunning Daren. Those brakes look brand new. Good luck at Stanford.

    Be good to have a catch up if sometime and also have a look over the corrado

    Thanks Chris, would indeed be good

    Bit more tinkering with the car recently, have been treating the leather with a few applications of Gliptone and pretty happy with the results , a definite improvement
    Some fresh coats of wax and general cleaning for up coming outings

    A couple of outings in the Corrado this year so far, Stanford Hall back in early May and last weekend Deutchfest at Brands Hatch where a few of us got to enjoy a couple of parade laps around the circuit courtesy of Vw Heritage
    A good day out and Jez & I won a little award in the Show & Shine. Very nice




    Also picked up a new stablemate for the Corrado




    Some of you may remember my last M car, the e46 which I regretfully sold my last Vr6 to buy and then subsequently didn't enjoy the Bmw, sold it soon after and found myself the current Corrado.
    That was 4 years ago and in that time I hankered after another M3 but didn't want to sell the Corrado but after much grovelling to the wife she allowed me to get this E92.
    My main dis-like of the E46 was actually the manual gearbox, found the clutch heavy & the box clunky.
    No such problem with this E92 though as it has the DCT box which is excellent
    Owned the car for a month now and loving it, a superb machine

    That looks a proper beast Daren. Great that you could keep the Corrado this time.
