My 92 VR6 & 09 Passat R36

Recommended Posts

Evening all!


This was my first Rado, loved it, some of you might remember it as I did post a decent thread in 2010. Haha.






Thread is here anyway: http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?45617-Dark-Burgundy-Pearl-16v-Update-16x8-s-all-round&highlight=jonny777


Thought i'd finally start a thread for my VR6. Have had it for 3 years now and haven't done a great deal to it! Just given it a full correction detail, fixed some basic stuff and MOT'd it once. Otherwise it's been sat in my garage.


It's done 92k miles and it is pretty nice for what it is. I got it for a silly deal and I plan on keeping it for as long as physically possible!

Moonlight Blue Pearl, fairly basic spec, just early VR kit. It's all in pretty good condition though. Mods wise its got a Jetex Exhaust and a K and N air filter for dirty VR noise.


Some pictures:















After the correction detail:






Plans are to get her back to how she should be, definitely needs getting off the standard Rado stilts and a decent set of suspension on. The heater matrix is dead sadly which will be the biggest job but that'll be soon. Wheels need a refurb and then its just tarting her up a bit.


Thought a few of you might be interested in my daily too. Bought it last year and flipping love the thing, Passat R36 Wagon.


It's bagged too on an Airlift Performance Air Ride and has pretty much all the options ticked for an R36, just no sunroof!












I'm sure most of you lot know how rare R36's are and there's only 135 ish left in this country. I can post more pictures if people care! Haha.


Anyway, the VR6, will hopefully keep this going properly now that I've got started on the Corrado again and can at least get some progress pics and build thread stuff sorted out!


Have put up a couple of wanted threads for some parts, ideally after some aftermarket suspension and bigger brakes for her so if you've got any give me a shout.


Comments etc welcome. Cheers!

Funnily enough I saw a Passat R36 just the other day and was a bit excited as I know they didn't exactly sell a lot of them! Sure they make for a great daily.

It's a fantastic thing it really is. I think I probably have more fun driving the Corrado though...


Not sure why the photos aren't working On my phone. They were on my laptop.

Haha cheers Stu! Have cleaned up the coils today and they don't look too bad.


Sadly the Passat gets much more attention than the Corrado. Especially with that exhaust on it!
