Corrado VR6 - K22 BRW

Recommended Posts

Anyone run a gamma 3 with an AUX input? There are plenty of connectors on eBay claiming to fit a gamma 3 but the connector doesn't look right at all, looks way too small!

 

I may have answered my own question, this looks like it would fit, not cheap though:

Any VR6 fuel tank experts here? Herritage are offering this at £22 + free delivery which really isn't bad!

But whilst the description states this:

To fit
Mk2 Golf 84-92 Excluding Syncro model
Mk2 Jetta 84-92
Mk3 Golf 92-98 Excluding estate
Corrado 89-91 with a 55 Litre Tank

 

Lower down the page it states:

FOR VEHICLES

Product Vehicle Years
Jetta 1984 - 1992
Golf Mk2 1984 - 1992
Golf Mk3 1992 - 1998
Corrado 1989 - 1995
Vento 1992 - 1998

So i'm a bit confused! I know ebay offer stainless ones but i'm not sure how i feel about having something blingy on show, think i'd rather they be black.

I’d get the stainless ones and have them powder coated, they’re should look great forever as when the coating chips the rust wouldn’t get underneath and scab it.

Cheers, thats a fair point and makes more sense.

Do you know if its the 70 litre tank or 55 for a late rado? Seems to be 2 versions available.

70l for late

They're not blingy as they're only visible if you're under the car, I think chipped paint would eventually look a bit shabby

i don’t think you’ve thought that through properly.
Cars are made of steel instead of stainless for cost reasons. If a car made of stainless steel received a nick to the paint it would just stay a nick but the car made of steel with the same nick in the paint would have it’s nick pretty quickly turn into a rust scab that eats away under the paint/coating, flaking it off and eating through the steel if left unchecked.

It doesn't really need thinking about in my opinion 

Stainless straps that have been painted will eventually chip and mark

Then you have a painted finish with shiny bits poking through

It doesn't have to be rusty to look shabby

They would be blasted to remove the shine before coating. They only shine because they are polished and there isn’t much that would adhere to that.
But hey it’s a free world I ain’t going to insist or talk anybody into anything that’s a bad idea or they don’t want to do.

Cheers for the help and comments all 👍👍

When i receive them I'll probably test fit anyway so I'll make a judgement on what they look like on the car. 

I'd like them to look reasonably standard fit, hence the black paint comment, in my head they would stand out a mile.....
