  1. After 25 years of pleasure, I have to sell my Corrado VR6 - it had 1 prior owner - a good friend.
    Full MOT, full service history, runs, needs cosmetic work inside and out. Everything is OEM.
    I will provide full details of ALL invoices and work carried out over the 25 years of my ownership.
    The identified required structural work was carried out to the satisfaction of the MOT.
    Included will be a number of extra parts (original metal sunroof and mechanism, original exhaust cover, fan thermistor !) accumulated down the years.

    From my first drive when I accelerated away from the lights, I have enjoyed driving this car !
    Due to a certain London Mayor, I can no longer afford to run it having bought another VW (ULEZ compliant) - I have owned 1 Scirocco Mk2, 3 Passats and a Golf.
    I have toured Europe on holiday as well as taking it on my daily commute along the A12.
    It is all it is cracked up to be.
    I hope the photos set it up for you.
    BTW the number plate was a matter of good fortune !spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.png

  2. My next project.. which matrix did you buy.... I want the best quality one I can get... as I’m only doing this job once...


    I went through Heritage Parts Centre. The first one delivered was ruined in transit and they were very prompt in sending a new one - no need to return the old one - for no extra charge. It was better packaged. I took photos throughout of all the boxes etc. Really impressed. Cannot confirm it was VAG OEM but keeping fingers crossed. Good luck.

  3. Just finished after about 12 hours ... I have replaced the hoes in the paddles with Aquarium filer and sticky aluminum tape ... we shall see.

    Regarding the wire loom around the fan arm/duct - I found it easiest to unclip the 3 fuses (if that is what they are - 79; 179 and 179 - to release the duct.

    Now very knackered.

  4. Check out the photos below. Spotless VR6 rocker cover which has been soda blasted, etch primed and sprayed in 2 pack satin silver. Part number is 021 103 475 C which denotes that it originally came off a 2.8 VR6 .......... probably a MK3 Golf. It is identical to the Corrado cover as the 2.9 engine is just a bored out 2.8 I had it as a spare when I had my Corrados ......... now long gone. I've also got the oil filler cap which I'll throw in FOC.


    Asking for £35 inc postage.







    Thank you for your reply, that looks great. I am assuming it will do the trick - my car is a '94 Corrado VR6. By the way, I also assume it is flat - only the garage - Clover Autos - pointed out that the plastic one that I have keep warping and if I do find a metal replacement, that it should be flat. Would you PM me ?


    Kind regards


  5. Looking for a replacement Rocker Cover with Groove to take Gasket - Back in Sept 2015 got a Rocker Cover installed to replace Boomerang shaped version. Understand that the replacement was flush and not grooved. Worked well for a bit then started slow trickle of oil. Need to keep topping oil up and want to replace with flat (non-boomerang), grooved correct cover during June half term.

    Thanks for any help.

  6. With my '94 VR6 rockers exposed to the air, I understand, from my good friends at Clover Autos, that I need a flat Rocker Cover - the present version resembles a boomerang. Also, they have suggested I need to get an Injection Rail.


    I am very interested in getting things back to normal - driving to and from work in the pride and joy - and I want to lose the very useful 1.6 Audi Estate Y reg. Too embarrassing.


    Please relieve the pain, put me out of my misery. No reasonable offer declined.


    Many thanks Toby
