  1. Golf Mk3 Vogtland Springs and KONI Adjustable Shocks This is a kit 1130-2908 Vogtland 35mm Lowering Springs KONI Adjustable Twin Tube Shocks Front 8741 1259 SPORT Rear 8040 1062 SPORT Bought these used for my Golf VR6, never fitted them. I had the front shocks refurbished by Raceline Suspension in 2010, which is why they are orange. They were forgotten at the back of a shed Anyone interested, call or message on 07802 380516. In Hartfield, E Sussex
  2. VRTrickster - I have no idea if the ECU is still available. My post was on 1st August. I wasn't breaking it. It went to a guy in Bridgend, S Wales complete, still running and rolling, on 5th September. Drove onto the flat bed lorry. He wanted the engine for a Corrado. The ECU may well still be available - from him.
  3. OK. Kind of you. 3rd Dibs. See how it goes with the other two guys.
  4. Got two who've rung - you may be one of them? Ben in London - first dibs. And Andrew in S Wales - second dibs.
  5. Just a bit dusty! The engine is genuinely 75k v well looked after miles - needs transplanting into another VR6 or Corrado. Mulberry interior is also v tidy. Hope someone can rescue it. Only put it on here so far. Where else might be worth a shot?
  6. FREE. This is free to anyone who wants it and can collect. This car was rolled (by me, ooops) in 2011. I’ve been away and haven’t been able to sort this before. It has been in open fronted storage since 2011. It is costing to store and need it gone. Collection from Hartfield, E Sussex TN7 4DN. Good access, concreted driveway to storage unit. Bad bits Panel damage, worst being front edge of the roof Windscreen v cracked Mirrors done for, NS missing Good bits - There are some! 2 x keys, alarmed, remote locking Wheels are good, although th
  7. Engine has been fine last 20k or so miles. Left it for about 6 weeks, not driven. Battery was flat. Started and it now sort of pulses and hunts, very regular, when cold, kind of vrrooom, vrrooom, vrrooom, regular at about 2 second intervals. Stops once car is warmed to operating temp. Black smokes a bit when sationary and revved whilst cold. Seems to be running too rich. Any ideas what could be causing this. Sensor somewhere?. I have a reasonable knowledge of cars and engines but do not know how VR6 cold enrichment works. On Corrado forum someone said that the ECU needs to 'learn engine a
  8. Thanks people, much appreciated. Found that you don't need to put a 90 degree bend in it....and the holes in the retaining bracket SPF200K are too small for the tensioner bolt, needs drilling out.
  9. Sorry folks, probably a pathetic question. Just got a used BMC CDA85-150 from the Corrado Forum. Have fitted it and it sounds like the doggies doodaas, awesome. shagged my fuel consumption!! Used a 9 inch flower pot to wedge it into a controlled position (so I could use/listen to it), Clearly only a temp arrangement. Sooooo..... Where is the best place/bolt to attach it to stabilse it - onto an engine bolt - one of the serpentine tensioner bolts maybe? Or to a bolt on the body....if so which one? Which bolt. Where? N
  10. Have a look on the Corrado Forum. Number of guys have done this and you can see their posts and contact direct.
  11. Kev, totally agree. My son fitted a 2 box Jetex to his Corrado VR6 and it was wonderful. Extremely civlised at tickover, low revs, not caning it, magical noise on full chat at upper end of rev range. If you want a smile, fit a BMC CDA. My boy had a green cotton with the Jetex.....hairy, hairy noise when peddle to the metal.
  12. Preciate not in Kent, but JMR (John Mitchell Racing) is a seriously knowledgeable and respected engineering shop in Littlehampton. He specialises in Corrados - he has an immaculate and very special G60, but he also is an expert on VR6s. He has a loan car available. He is a good diagnostic guy but tends to want to replace everything that isn't 100% even if it is working fine at 70%, bit of a perfectionist, so you need to be cautious as to what really, really does need replacing. For about £90 he does a full assessment of a car (Rado or Golf) with a detailed written report. Quite useful to kno
  13. Thanks peeps - really useful feedback. That is what I thought. Inappropriate recommendation and just taking the Mick and after my money. Shan't be using them for anything any time soon.
  14. As subject. Anyone fitted KW Variant 3s to either a Golf or Corrado? They are seriously expensive.....are they worth it? What is the ride like? My standard suspension is a bit knackered and a tuning shop is pushing me this way. I'm a little suspicious that the shop is taking me for a ride - I can afford them but I don't think I need them and I'm thinking they will make a big margin if they supply and fit these. I actually do have a bus pass so I'm beyond 'middle aged', but still enthusiastic and use the car as a daily driver. I'm not going to do track days or what ever, just drive it on the r
