R32 1993 Dark Pearl Burgundy Corrado - £3500 ono
With regret, I need to pass my beloved car onto a new owner. It's a fantastic drive, and has been extremely fun in the last few months on the occasion I've chosen to take it for a spin.

Used as a daily by me for a number of years both before and after the new engine. Had a lot of love and care over the years, with all work completed to a high standard by myself or others
I took it off the road from September 2015 until November 2018. Since November, it's regained an MOT and has been used on weekends and evenings and when not in use it's garaged.
Whilst I've been using it these last few months, I've had various things done including;
New Battery, Alternator and starter motor (all bosch/varta)
New front offside outer CV
New clutch slave cylinder
(in the last 3 months alone, it's had around £1300 spent on it!)
The windscreen has a crack on both sides. It's not in a position to cause a failed MOT, but it will need replacing.
There are two areas of rust that will need sorting;
One spot is on the inside of the A-Pillar approximately 1 or two inches, it had always been my intention to get the windscreen replaced and fix this rust at the same time.
Underneath and adjacent to the rear badge are two spots bubbling, approximately the size of a 20p piece each.
Rust wise, this is pretty much it. There is none in the usual other places, like under the filler cap, wings and sills. These have already been restored around 4 years ago to a high standard.
Reason for sale: This needs to go on to someone who has the time to make it perfect. I have put a lot of time and money into this car, but want to hang up the hat. It is a fantastic car and I will miss it greatly, it will give the new owner a great amount of enjoyment.
