So at my second attempt at buying a Corrado VR6, the first being when I was living in Florida 15 years ago. The I saw this one on Fleabay, phoned the owner and had a good chat with him about the car and today went up to see it and go for a test drive. No pics yet but those taken from the add. The interior is good - it even has the original tape deck! Externally the metalwork is in good condition for a 26 year old car with no rust. The bumpers are showing their age though, and will need some TLC down the line. There are 5 Porsche D90 wheels with tyres that have only done 400 miles. Mechanically the car is very nice and where the previous own has done a lot of work. Some of the work that's been done: brakes are 312mm discs up front with Audi TT mk1/S3 callipers, Golf mk4 aluminium callipers at the back, all with Goodridge stainless lines. Also had the ABS pump rebuilt. The coilovers are ST with height and rebound adjustment. Full Milltek exhaust including Milltek cat. The front subframe and suspension is all new and has been power coated.
So the deposit is paid, I just need to finalise the sale of my car and arrange a day to collect. There are only 3 things I will need to do pretty soon after buying: a full oil and filter change, fix / relpace sunroof motor and replace the idle control valve. Bring it on
