    Metallic Black, just finished posting the add in the classified. ONLY ADVERTISED ON THIS FORUM.
  3. 1996 Black 2.9 VR6 - SOLD Never thought this day would come. Up for sale is my much loved 1996 2.9 VR6 Corrado, first registered in Feb 1996. 128,787 miles as of today. Only advertised here on this forum at the moment as I really want it to go to a good home, to someone who'll enjoy it as much as I have. I've owned this car for 15 years, purchasing in December 1999 at almost 15,000 Car has the VW full closure CAT 1 alarm fitted with installation certificate This car is no longer my daily driver as of 2007, averaging 2000 miles a year since then. Garaged when not being used. (I had the garage built to keep this car!) If i had the space to keep it I would. My Corrado has wanted for nothing whilst I've owned it and never intended selling it. I had the timing chains and tappets replaced in July 2001 as a precautionary measure, although this didn't need doing I wanted the car to last, receipts from main dealer. In October 2003 I had the following work done by Vince up at Stealth Racing. Jetex performance exhaust BMC Carbon Dynamic Air filter Shrick VSR variable inlet manifold Koni struts with H & R springs Eibach anti-roll bars Goodridge Hoses Pagid F/R disks and pads. ECU Remap I've the dyno graph somewhere, showing 220ftlb of torque and 220bhp, but I can't seem to find it at the moment. Comes with a full service history ( main dealer and independent specialist ) and lots of receipts. The car had a full professional re spray in Feb 2014. I do drive this car, so there are a few small stone chips, otherwise rust free and excellent paint. Car has done approx. 4000 miles since the re-spray. Last trip was 1500 miles around France this summer. Love driving this car. Also have fitted the uprated headlight loom, ( extra x-relief relay and power ) Full leather interior in excellent condition with heated front seats. All brake pipes replaced in 2013 Replaced the headlining in Feb 2014. Had a new wiper motor fitted in March 2014. New battery in May 2015 EBC disks and pads fitted Feb 2014 Has "Corrado" badged boot carpet ( original carpet is underneath, in excellent condition), and badged deep pile mats shipped from the US Carbon Fibre VR6 Door sill protectors, again from the US. Also comes with an unused custom fit "Corrado" badged car cover, ( not used as the car has been dry stored when not being driven ) Car sits on TSW 17" Big Deep wheels, polished rims with anthracite middle. Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres, all in excellent condition and no curb marks or dings on any of the rims. Refurbished in March 2014 Sunroof and Spoiler all working properly, just had the sunroof mechanism overhauled with the last genuine runners from VW last week. The following Audio Install was done in April 2014 at over ?1000 Alpine SBG-844BR - 8" Sub in Bass Reflex Enclosure Alpine: SPG-13CS Components Alpine SPG-69C2 - 2-way 6" x 9" speakers Alpine MRX F35 4 channel Power Amplifier Alpine MRX M55 Mono Power Amplifier Pioneer AVH-X7500BT Single Din multimedia head unit, flip out screen, Ipod Compatible with Album art and Bluetooth hands free. This includes all speaker cables Car also comes with original wheels, original manifold/air filter and original unmolested parcel shelf. A bargin at ?5600 ----------------------------------UPDATED---------------------------- Had a fair bit of interest in the car, but more in standard trim. PRICE NOW ?5000 for the car as is. With standard manifold/air filter/wheels/parcel shelf included. If you're interested in putting the car back to standard, then the resale value of the shrick is 800/1k. Wheels 100/200. Audio 400/600. Air Filter 50/100. Easily 1k of parts here. So you'd be getting an excellent late VR6 for under 4k. Would like to see the car go as is, think it's a brilliant car for the money. ----------------------------------UPDATED---------------------------- List Date: 8/1/2015 Location: Kent, United Kingdom For more info, click here to view the original listing: 1996 Black 2.9 VR6 - SOLD -------------------------------------- On Sale For: ?5,000.00 (Local Pickup Only) -------------------------------------- Mobile friendly version: 1996 Black 2.9 VR6 - SOLD Go Mobile: Download the free Panjo iOS app now!

  8. When mine failed it was the cable, flee-bay probably your best bet for a second hand one.
