    I had tombstones in mine around 7 years back . They look nice , but way to heavy .



    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.

    What about more updated seats from a Boxster?

    The tombstones were nice and comfortable, much the same as Oem seats really. They do hug you a bit more . It’s the motors though, so heavy . I had a bit of a battle to get them in and out as well .

    I may be an outlier, but I had factory-fit Recaro in my last Corrado and didn't like them. They are wider than the standard seat and didn't hold you as well when driving enthusiastically. Also being wider, they rubbed a little on the centre tunnel when sliding forward/back.

    Whilst I am at it, I'm not entirely sold on old school leather - it looks great, but it flipping burns the back of your legs on a hot day! I have standard cloth interior on my Corrado and have to say, I'm liking it :-)

    I'm sure other will disagree?
    Addicted to all things Corrado, resulting in a rather large collection of Corrado paraphernalia :-)

    That is just crazy some of these prices for secondhand parts, I've seen a set of later type fog lights going for well over £300
    Plus the front bumper grill going for £280
    this was new but even so

    And I've seen a new set of early headlights going for £650

    But the winner so far for the price has got to go to that Ebay seller with the Corrado interior £1999.95


    Si
    Had MK2 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002


    Now have Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it
