  1. I've been asked if I can supply short shifters for the Golf Mk3 as I already do for the Corrado Forum, link here - http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?t=61985&highlight=tunnel Photo here - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3G5ikFakLqGdDc2ZUp6YnlzYkk The Golf shifter is very similar to the Corrado shifter but they are NOT the same or interchangeable, I've taken a Golf shifter and a Corrado shifter complete with the Ali mounting frame and compared the two and they are very similar. I do not have a Golf Mk3 nor do I have access to one so this first shifter will be a development item and I'd like someone with a car local to me to be the Guinea Pig if this is possible. Don't worry it'll just be a case of swapping the shifter and trying it out but I'd like to be there when this happens, in fact I don't mind doing the swap myself as it would give me a better understanding of the Golf. I'm very close to M1 J25 Notts/Derbys. Providing the shifter will work and I have no reason not to believe this, the details are - Forward and back reduction only. Neutral to gear select reduction of 20mm (26%). It's only a mild reduction to prevent notchyness and excessive effort required to change gear. All worn parts replaced. Use your existing gear knob. Mechanism cleaned and greased. Install guide provided. Sold on an exchange basis only. If not completely satisfied, return the shifter for a refund. If you require feedback please see the above link on the Corrado Forum. Price is £80 posted with £25 refund on the return of your shifter to me providing it can be re-used. I can modify your shifter if it is sent to me but it needs to be in good condition, I will need it for around 1 week, cost for this is £55 posted back to you. Payment by Paypal or bank transfer, PM me for details. Comments very welcome. Thanks Dave

    Carl, Yes if you can get hold of one that would be better. I can shorten it and re-thread no problem at all. Dave
  4. Golf Mk3 Short Shifter

    Hi Carl, The reduction in throw is very noticeable but not too much to introduce a notchy shift. If you're not happy with it just send it back, no probs. I've never had anyone send theirs back yet. The only problem is I've got 2 in the queue for these already who have paid a deposit. A bigger problem is people don't send their old shifters back in exchange so I struggle to turn these around quickly. Dave

  8. Corrado Door Handle issues

  9. Corrado Door Handle issues

    Hi, not my kit, I don't sell them on Ebay. I do still sell them on the Corrado Forum though and here if anyone wants one but my price for a pair is double the price and always has been. In my defence I've had one of those kits and it's not as good as mine but yeah I would say that wouldn't I? Being honest it really wasn't a nice piece of kit, you have to insert an extra washer in there which was very fiddly on top of an already fiddly process. Once fitted the handle was very stiff to operate and I bet they don't offer a fitting service either? Dave

    Yes still for sale but having trouble getting hold of them. If you can source one to send me or send me yours for modifying that would be ideal.
