MOT till May 2014. Tax till end March 2014.


Paint is pretty good, mostly original so some chips along the bonnet and front wings. TBH this is the only thing that lets the car down a little and was next on my list of things to do. Still really good though.


Lots of other spec stuff, so much I can't remember it all. File stuffed full of receipts. Turbo parts alone adds up to over £5000!


Mileage currently 94k. Car finished 4th in class 14 (VW Coupes) at Stanford Hall this year despite all the mods the car is original inside and out. It looses all its points under the bonnet for not being factory standard!


Oil and filter changed every 6000miles from initial ownership. VW Synta Gold, FSH before this. Essentially this car has wanted for nothing.


Lots of people know this car and have been out for a 'Pootle'. It's been described by many as such a good conversion that it drives like VW built it.


Lots and lots of spares and all the original parts removed for the conversion. Lots of now obsolete parts like, door rubber strips, wing mirrors seals, front screen seals and trim pieces, seat squab foams etc etc. Another set of solitudes (original from car). 2 x Doors, 2x working sunroofs, spare lights, mirrors and loads of trim. Basically if anybody gets close to the asking price the all the spares will come as part of the package.


Looking for offers in the region of £7k with everything.


I may consider coming lower without the parts package which is easily £1k on its own, but seeing as most of it is now obsolete........


Sensible offers only please. Any questions drop me a PM.

I think it's also worth adding that engine work aside, cosmetically this car is superb. The paint is in brilliant condition the whole way round. To build a Corrado to this condition would cost you far more, so should be a no brainer for anyone consider going for a VR6 Turbo.


I've said it several times already, but its a real shame you're moving on Dave.
