  1. That's one fine looking Corrado Ray, really like that
  2. You must be addicted to that 6-pot noise now Chris ;)
  3. Lol you're ok, I like seeing it [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Stop it with all the pics Chris, you're making me miss mine now! [emoji12][emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ooo sounds nice. Black headlining is a good call [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You should be! Is it a keeper? Have you nearly finished putting your 'touch' on it?
  7. The C is looking great Chris, love the wheels/colour, they suit it spot-on mate
  8. Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated ;) Yeah I'm with you on the not caring about bhp figures front, it is about how it drives!! I think that's why I miss my valver more than the VR6. The VR wins on outright performance and sound for sure, but just something about the 2.0 16v gets under your skin!
  9. Oh wow didn't think it would make much difference. What is the difference if not a silly question? More responsive or just faster at all speeds? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Ah ok mate no problem. Should sell easy enough, it looks tidy[emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Mine had the 2.0 16v 9a engine. I've had a MK2 Golf before with 1.8 16v Kr and that did feel quicker, or more responsive at least, but there was something that felt better on the 9a. I can't recall if it's supposed to have more torque? Either way I really liked it, but you're right, supposed to be not very tuneable, other than fitting KR cams in the 9a.
  12. p/x any interest? - http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?94985-WANTED-2-0-16v-Corrado
  13. Thanks Jim. :thumbleft: I just love the E39!! Did many miles in them 'back in the day' and have been using them as daily transport for the last 18 months or so. However, a new job and company car means it's no longer my daily. I don't want to get rid as I love the car, but it just doesn't seem the right car for weekend only hooning around. There was something about the 2.0 16v engine I just loved - a lot more so than a 1.8 KR. I didn't think there'd be much in it, but despite being a bit ropey to look at, I do miss my old valver!
  14. Hey all, been a stranger for a while here! I'm contemplating buying another C - they say you always come back ;) At present I only have my 2002 E39 BMW 530d Sport Auto to offer in swap/p-x (value £2500) but when that's gone will have cash on my hip! I don't know why but I miss my old 2.0 16v more than the VR6, so that's what I'm looking for, but will consider anything. Let me know if anyone is interested out there. (Admins - if the non-VAG p/x is against the rules I wont be offended if the thread vanishes!! :thumbleft:) Cheers Andy
  15. Looks lovely that Al, same colour as my old one. Top colour ;)
  16. +1 for DPD, always had good experiences with both sending and receiving parcels and as mentioned, the time slots are pretty spot-on
  17. Welcome Chris, good to see you over here! :thumbleft: Cracking car in one of the best colours - you will love it! I'm certainly missing mine the more I see yours! http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?89710-Chopped-in-my-2-0-16v-Corrado-today As mentioned on FB, you just have to fit a short-shift if Dave can knock you one up? http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?61985-Corrado-Short-Shifter&highlight=short+shift You may have noticed the long throw on the gearstick (assuming one isn't fitted already?)It makes the change so much nicer and not too short like some kits. Looking forward to seeing you add your 'touch' to this one. Enjoy it ;)
  18. I suppose it's just different - and down to personal taste. I love the sound of the VR6, but just loved the way the 16v drove. There's nothing tangible I can put my finger on - esp. as my valver was pretty rough looking, I just loved it more.
  19. I meant the 2.0 16v Corrado Wayne, like the white one I used to have. It was a really nice car to drive.
  20. The noise is hard to beat, but for me if I buy another it's very likely to be a 16v again, rather than VR6. I really liked the VR and it looked lovely, but I loved the 16v more for some reason?
