  1. Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't the spolier actually to reduce the drag Co and hence improve speed and fuel consumption? I don't think it was ever designed to perform any kindly of downforce/stability. Look at the wind tunnel pictures on the Corrado Club website http://www.corradoclub.org
  2. Look at it from the other side. If someone hit you and their insurance was invalid how would you feel. (i presume an insurer will not pay out to a 3rd party?)
  3. The Veyron is for sale, so, one of those. A Porsche Cayenne. I know but have you have driven one? An Aston DB9 (Soft and Tin Top) My old Storm back. Both of Murci's incl the new SE (despite what Plato said on 5th gear!)
  4. Post a query on the CCGB forum and PM me your details. I can arrange a CCGB cover letter. http://www.corradoclub.org/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=15
  5. I'm working on the gallery bit. There are several hundred pics on the CCGB server but I need to alter quite a few of the file names so they work with the gallery page. I'm also looking at a way to upload pics and that still works with the gallery. Remember, I'm an tax adviser not a web designer so i'm learning on the Job. Stick with me! (but i'm pretty pleased with my efforts so far! :) ) Oh, and which browers don't like the site?
  6. It's live. http://www.corradoclub.org
  7. The good news is that I have finished the Beta version of the site and will have it live tomorrow (Sunday 11th). Just looking for typo's etc... Hope you all like it. Bit basic at the mo but you will be able to see where its going. Also built in Flash so shouldn't be any page loading/sizing problems. It's 00:45 in the morning and i'm off to bed. Try the site again, say, mid afternoon.
  8. Ops, yep sorry about the Estoril. Saw the car on as US website. I've tracked down images for all bar the Estoril. Anyone have any?
  9. Is the Estoril not just a US spec Jet?
  10. Joking aside, the site will be back in a new, userfriendly, format by the weekend.
  11. God, that site is offline again. This time for an 'update'. The webmaster must be a right muppett!
  12. Can anyone point me in the direction of a couple of pics for the new CCGB website. Ideally looking for press images (or standard cars) for the following: Campaign Storm Jet Other special editions (i.e. karmann soft top) Not found much on Google.
  13. That can't be true. Someone ring up the DVLA.
  14. The number plate 'surrounds' should be legal in the UK. They are widely used in Europe and meet stringent TUV approval. I've also heard they can help number plate recognition by providing a boarder for the number. They were introduced as a response to new laws that say manufactures could not advertise on the actual plate. The DVLA cannot stop you making your own show plates and using them on private land. (see your local hardware store for Vinyl numbers). Personally, i'd rather run normal UK plates and i'm all for greater policing of our cars. If some scum takes it I want it back as soon as!!
  15. It'll be held a one of the larger tracks who have recommended 25 cars on track at any one time (it's a high speed, not sprint circuit). Space shouldn't be a problem. If we go with one of the track day companies then the price will be more like £150 pp when you factor in their profit share! The cost not only includes the track but also marshalls, clerk of the course and the provision of fire and ambulance services.
  16. 'IF ' this goes ahead, it'll be a Corrado only day unless the numbers are short (we would need 100 cars in total to breakeven, not looking to make a profit) in which case it'll be open to other VAG owners clubs. The place will be somewhere in the midlands. The price would be a maxmium £100 for as much track time as you want. Remember, this is not a definate event, just want to test the water for the above. Comments?
  17. You may like to get you cars back on the road/track for Spring 2006.
  18. Keep them coming, please. All will be revealed soon.
  19. Me, about £75 for unlimited use seems fair.
  20. [align=center]Quick Research How much would you be prepared to pay attend a track day? Would it make a difference if it was Corrado only?[/align]
  21. £14,739 @ 22% = £3,242.58 benefit. So it'll cost me £59 or £108 per month in tax. Hmm, bit steep. Thought the list would be lower for a 15 year old car. Never mind.
  22. Can anyone on here tell me the original manufacture's list price for a 1990 G Reg 1.8 Golf GTi 5dr in basic trim. Considering having it as my company car and need to know the tax saving.
  23. I've just sold the Corrado and have a Mk2 golf loan car while I'm waiting to find a TVR. I think I need to rethink.
