  1. Unfortunately, I have to rely on used original parts, which is why I am very happy to trade in defective or old parts. Some Corrados also do not need motors for the electrical headlight range control, would reduce the price again. This means that the price can vary between € 500 and € 850 + shipping.
  2. Ok, if there is no need, the thread can be closed @admin. Thank you. Chris
  3. I am offering a set of RHD facelift headlights in mint condition. (Refurbished, like new.) Glasses like new. Frame like new. Newly coated reflectors. Housing as good as new. Electric motors for headlight range adjustment. Optionally possible: - LHD glasses as good as new - new OEM reflectors / yellow french style / blackened reflectors - Manual controls for setting the headlight range - Also available as a version for the old model / G60 / VFL / 1 phase You can also send your old headlights in for overhaul. You will receive an individual offer by email. Shipping within Germany 10 €, shipping within EU is 20 €, shipping worldwide is possible but needs to be discussed. best regards Chris
  4. In order to get a good / perfect and legal replacement especially for the fog lights and head lights, a cooperation with Hella or at least InPro is absolutely necessary. They have the molds, they have the licenses and they have the know-how. But I think they are not interested, unfortunately.
  5. No disrespect for the poster but unfortunately a lot of people don't seem to be able to calculate. If someone wonders why I avoid Facebook. It's comments like this. Lots of people can build lots of parts, cheaper and better. Many people find a lot of parts too expensive. Lots of people talk a lot. Unfortunately, they never show better quality or a cheaper price. They want to drive an exclusive car for which there are no spare parts. They want the best quality. But they don't want to pay anything. That does not work. But, Iet me explain the 10th time. You think 600-700 € for a set of fog lights as good as new are too expensive? You think 800-900 € for a set of headlights as good as new are too expensive? Fog lights: A set of usable facelift fog lights with broken lenses, where it makes sense to renew them, costs around € 200. New lenses from VX are $ 175 + shipping + customs. Around € 220. Then comes the work: Remove 2x glasses and glue = 1.5h Repaint 2x housing = 1.0h Replace 2x reflectors = 80 € + 0.5h Build 2x new wiring harnesses = 1.0h Glue in new glasses twice = 0.5h Packing + writing an invoice + little things = 1.0h Then subtract 12% eBay fees from the price, subtract 3% PayPal fees and 16% VAT from the price. Headlights: A useful set of facelift headlights costs around € 400. 2 x polishing glasses = 6h Replace 2 x reflectors and recoat = 100 € + 0.5h Repair 2 x minor damage = 1.0h Packing + writing an invoice + little things = 1.0h Then subtract 12% eBay fees from the price, subtract 3% PayPal fees and 16% VAT from the price. Anyone who thinks the price is too high for this quality should perhaps buy a MK 2 or 3. The spare parts are cheap and available. I don't want to have these conversations anymore. My aim is not to sell as much as possible. My goal is to make the parts as good as possible. If the parts are too expensive for you, simply don't buy them. best regards Chris
  6. I spoke to Mike from VXtuning a while ago. He has confirmed that a seller form UK has exclusively ordered RHD glasses from his form for all customers from the UK. I cannot guarantee that this will actually happen. New shapes for RHD glasses would be necessary. The problem is the approval of the glasses, whether LHD or RHD. I still work with VXtuning. As soon as I have news, I will let you know. Chris
  7. The VX lenses for the headlights are now available! greetings chris
  8. It's hard to estimate a price. The price depends on the need. And the need depends on the price. As a Corrado driver myself, I would pay 250-280 for good quality. Maybe we could take this number as realistic?
  9. Thanks for your nice words. I don't have an online shop, I only offer my things on ebay, ebay classifieds and some forums. Personally, I don't like Facebook. It's not about selling as many parts as possible, it's just a hobby for me.
  10. However, I think that the pictures show that I try to offer the best possible quality. And this brings us to the primary point of the thread. Many Corrado drivers are looking for centre console for the dashboard. We have already found a good solution for the LHD Corrados. (535 863 241 E) Many british Corrado drivers have asked if it is possible to produce this centre console for RHD Corrados as well. The part number for RHD should be 536 863 241 E. Correct? The basic question with such a complex part is of course how much demand there is. So I would like to ask you to estimate how many parts are needed at all. Greetings Chris
  11. Meanwhile I am more interested in headlights, fog lights and turn signals. That gives more pleasure than plastic. This also resulted in cooperation with other well-known manufacturers such as Spoonfed and VX. From a technical point of view, almost anything is possible when renewing headlamps. However, until now I still depend on used OEM parts for the most part. If you want more information about this: http://www.vwcorrado-forum.de/mbb/showthread.php?tid=46425
  12. In between I also experimented with 3D printing. Especially for smaller parts 3D printing should be optimal. Unfortunately I had to realize that the quality is not good enough in my opinion. Therefore I stopped the production of some parts. Especially the clips of the speedometer are complicated to make. There are 3-4 different versions of these clips. It is almost impossible to make a universal version that fits all frames. (535858508 & 535858507) (535 827 769) Most materials used for 3D printing are simply too hard and brittle. Maybe it would be possible to assemble them once, but they would break at the latest when disassembling them.
  13. This was followed step by step by larger plastic parts. Unfortunately of course primarily LHD parts. For example: Number plate holder in European or American design 535813990 535813989. Frame for additional displays for early types 535 858 203. Air intakes as replacement for defective fog lights. Door sill plates 535 853 813 A.
