  1. Well the old girl went off with her new owner this afternoon, sad to see her go but glad that she is going to get driven daily by the looks of things. I think I will have a break from Corrado insanity for a while but you never know I might be back .......just don't tell the wife I said that.

  2. Hold the phone!!


    If he hit you and excepted liability it is up to his insurance company to do the running around not you or your insurance. It shouldn't affect your no claims either or your excess. The repair looks to be less than the value of the car easily so don't let them scare you with right off cobblers

  3. Audi A3 1.8T 2002 3dr – Remapped & Modified - £1250 ono


    Located in Leighton Buzzard, Beds


    Audi A3 3dr in Denim blue registered in 2002 with 2 previous owners and111457 miles on the clock (will increase as car is in use). Owned by myself since 2006 and only now being sold due to the purchase of a new car, so is surplus to requirements. Car has been modified to improve both the power and handling, see below:




    Remapped by AMD Essex to around 200+ BHP (Car has K03s turbo as factory fitment)


    Single Mass flywheel conversion with Sachs clutch


    TT 312mm brake conversion including Goodridge hoses (6 lines not the usual 4)


    Forge Silicon Turbo hoses throughout


    Forge Diverter valve


    N249 delete


    Boost gauge


    Eibach anti roll bars front and back


    Koni Shocks & Springs – lowered around 30 – 40 mm


    Top Strut brace


    MOT until April 2014


    Tax until Jan 2014


    Service history until 68,000 then serviced every 8000 miles by myself using Castrol Edge synthetic oil


    Cam belt & water pump changed at 75,000


    New Discs and pads front and back only a few thousand miles ago.


    New rear caliper's a few thousand miles ago


    CD Auto changer & I-pod adapter



    Bad points:


    Slight bubble under the paint on the driver’s side roof


    Alloys could do with a refurb or replacement as the factory paint has started to flake off


    Couple of stone chips in windscreen but passed MOT


    Usual mileage related stone chips and car park nudges.

  4. I had a set of these that I sold on here a couple of years ago, they used to rub quite a bit but can't remember what size tyres I had on mine!! Can you confirm these dint rub with a slightly lowered Corrado? Thanks


    I have had no rubbing issues with these m8 although I generally have had the car with a couple of finger width's between the tyre and arch.

  5. Just how close does it look when you just close the bonnet? might be worth just using some plastigauge or a lump of bluetak to see how much room you actually have without the engine running/ transmission force etc.


    Mine has front and rear Vibratec mounts and a VF gearbox mount which does keep things pretty much located but still allowed some contact with the Schrick.
