  1. Edited to provide further info on the Salvage situation & price correction. This is my Mystic blue Storm, number 217 of 505, currently with 139k miles & one family owned, prior to me, with a full service history. Bodywork is in great original condition, as is the interior, with only light wear evident on the drivers seat. The original Sony stereo is still in place & there are a new set of carpet mats. The car has an aftermarket Toad alarm which includes remote central locking. NB this was a professional install & works perfectly. Since owning the car, I've done a full brake refresh - discs, pads & ABS sensors & the ABS pump has just been replaced with a new unit from ABB Reman. The wheels have also been refurbed. Then engine is quiet & runs very sweet & pulls well through the gears & a full Milltek stainless exhaust has recently been fitted. There is an immense history file with the car as the original owner kept pretty much every invoice & paperwork for the car, starting with an original 1995 Corrado sales brochure, together with a period, colour photocopy of the Storm sales brochure! In addition, there is every single tax disc & every MOT certificate, from 97 to the present day, yes, every single one! The VW handbook folder is in perfect condition & contains all of the original books, including the Sony instruction manual & there are 2 keys & 2 alarm fobs. The only downside is that the V5 shows the car as Salvaged. From the info I have, it seems the car was stolen/recovered & written off as being un-economic to repair. The owner bought the car back off the insurance company & had it repaired professionally, after which it was inspected by VOSA engineers & passed the Vehicle Identicy Check (VIC) to allow the re-issue of the V5 by DVLA. I'm looking for £11750 but open to offers - PM me for more info & photos. thanks

    Rear silencer

    Is there a decent supplier of VR6 rear silencers or will Kwik Fit be able to sort me out? Any suggestions welcome & wats the difference between resonated or non-resonated? cheers
  5. Can anyone point me to a definitive explanation of how to fix or replace the fan/heater controls of a 95 Corrado plse?
  6. Can anyone point me to a definitive explanation of how to replace the electric window regulator on a 95 car? Lots of threads on here with broken links so I'm not having any joy finding wat i need

    Brake feel

    ok, cheers all - sounds like fairly normal then!

    Brake feel

    Just had new brakes fitted all round on the Storm & now the pedal feels really soft with a long travel, is that normal in a Corrado (as suggested by the mechanic)? I've only ever driven 2 Corrado's but that doesnt seem to have been my experience. cheers Jenks
  9. Finally got around to taking some pics today for the insurance valuation, so here we are, this is my VR6 Storm
  10. nope, no issues apart from the fact the needle doesnt rise! I expected it to move into the middle of the gauge to indicate normal running.
  11. doh! its the 2.9 VR6.
  12. My dash temp gauge refuses to go much above the 70 degree min temp, so i suspect that the coolant sensor is faulty. But, i cant seem to see where the bl**dy thing is under the bonnet! Anyone got a engine bay pic of the sensor to help this old fool out?! cheers Jenks
  13. I had a similar issue when my VR6 wouldnt start - it would attempt to fire but not fully 'catch'. Both the AA man & me thought it was fuel pump but my mechanic tracked it down to an immobiliser issue in the ECU.. So, we removed it from the car & sent it off to be fixed/re-coded by an auto electrician in Bristol & the car now starts & runs well. Get the ECU properly looked at would be my suggestion.
