    What Wheels ??

    I'm looking at buying some 18" RS4's but what to know if I am going to have problems with the clearance? Anyone fitted these?
  3. The Standard Dimensions of the VR6 Speedlines is 6.5J X 15 PCD 5-100 & ET43 Can anyone give me advise on what is the max offset/wheel size that can be used when buying aftermarket wheels. (Without the use of adapters & std ride height)
  4. I agree, I need to modify it!
  5. Lights were cheap, and have to better than standard. Might stick on ebay and replace with m3 crystal types. The question is, do you keep it stock and wait for 10 years for it to become valuable? Or just forget about that and modify it?? And will that really effect the value that much? Corrado's seem to be cheap as at the moment as well !
  6. It's crying out for wheels and suspension.. Caught in a dilemma on whether to sell and try a WRX to see what all the fuss is about ..
  7. Possibly for sale... See here for work done: http://www.the-corrado.net/.archive/forum/album_ ... er_id=1752
  8. Called and my not eligible. What a bitch.
  9. http://www.theaa.com/allaboutcars/recal ... &makeId=E8 This is possibly the recall you mentioned but the build date is 83 - 84 ? Since when did they make Corrado's in this year? Hoping it's a misprint and means 93-93 which will put me in that catergory?
  10. Just need to get the number for the recall then. Failing that, on with the surgical gloves again.
  11. http://the-corrado.net/.archive/forum/album_pers ... er_id=1752 I did my own timing chains and hydraulic lifters at the same time. £1100 ! Sod that, get stuck in! It's easier than it looks... Just a bit knackering and hand battering.
  12. Kev, Surely that would not still apply now?
  13. My cooling fans, well either one or the other is making a right racket when I switch the car off. The car looks lovely when polished up but then the less impressive noise starts when I park up and the fans kick in. Talk about noise! and embrassment! My question is, is there a repair kit ? Failing that does anyone have some very good condition ones and help me save face when parking up :wink:
  14. Red VR6 Grille badge, I'm considering selling, they are quite rare I have been told? If I was to sell it how much should I be looking at? Is in near enough perfect condition.
  15. Some time ago there was a post on the forum on how to replace the drive belt tensioner bearing on a VR6 and what to use, how to obtain the part. Mine is making a bit of a racket, and it spoils the hum of the engine. The cost of a new one is £60 from VW which I don't want to pay as I know somewhere on here there is a fix for it. Before anyone says it, I have done a load of searches but cannot find that thread ?
  16. Ok I'm Put Off !!!!!!!!!!
  17. I am currently looking at selling my VR due to losing the bug a little and want to try out something else before 'maybe' getting another VR. Was thinking along the lines of a Subaru WRX turbo 4x4 which you can get for around £3500 + Has anyone owned both of these cars to make a non biased comparison? And problems likely to face with a scooby. (apart from depreciation)
  18. Kev I take it you mean R32 ? A while ago I saw a thread on here somewhere that suggested that you could get a recon engine less ancillaries for just a tad under 2K.. Can't remember the supplier though. Or whether it was just b'sh#t. Probably a 2.8 also.
  19. Dazzy, was there any rattling from the engine for you to decide to do this? Take a look at my old tensioner that I've attached, this is what yours looks like at present. My rivets had disappeared along with the piece of friction pad that is usually just above them for a get together down in the sump.
  20. Well, it looks like I may sell mine while the going is good and it has so much new stuff fitted in the engine bay as well as brakes and bearings and abs rings etc... If I buy another one I will be when I have the money to buy a storm with cream leather. I seem to have lost my appreciation a little so think I may try something else for a while.. (another VW of sorts)
  21. Hopefully !!! Will have to time this right then..
  22. Is it me or are the prices for these cars fallen dramatically over the last month !!! £2100 for a VR6 on autotrader at present! I am considering selling mine but can't afford to sell it for less than 4k with all the work thats been done on it.
