  1. Oh no, another Noob

    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

  4. 2001 vr6

    I have a 2001 vr6. It was my first car I’ve ever purchase. I don’t want to get rid of it, I wanted to fix it but I need to get rid of it because it’s taking up space and I don’t have the money to work on it. If anyone needs parts or wants to take it as a whole, I’m willing to make a deal. Let me know.

  9. Modified airbox

  10. Hi I'm selling my golf VR6. I've had this car for three years and selling as we're downsizing to one car. I paid £2k for this three years ago and replaced the wheels (Wolfrace) and added new tyres (yokohamas) and had some of the body work replaced. Mileage is below 100k. Has all the extras (leather recearo seats, Air conditioning, electric sun roof) - note Leather looks worn from pictures, it is not, leather is all sound, but pevious owner re-coloured them them from yellow to blueish colour and it's just where the colouring has worn. I've had two new front side panels fitted (each side) and a new rear passanger door and also had the crank shaft sensor replaced. Front spoiler / splitter was replaced with genuine OEM, MOT'd until April 2020. Lot's of service history. There are spots of rust, with rust on the side skirts. The Alloys could also do with some refurb. The central locking doesn't work. Runs really nicely. Photo's attached - happy to provide more. I've no idea what the car is worth, will be sad to see it go, but I'd say this is a pretty good one and would sell for £2.5k. Send me a message if you would like to discuss. David

  18. I am selling my VR6 Highline which is like selling a family member. It was my husbands company car from new in 1996 and he then bought the car from the lease company in 1999. It has been very carefully looked after and is garaged when not out and about. I am advertising it here with the VR6 Owners Club as I want it to go to a good home. If no interest I will place it in the motoring press. I would appreciate advise on the best forum to advertise it but it will probably be Autotrader. It has done 95500 miles and comes with a full service history. It is unmodified with the only addition of remote locking which did not come as standard. Black leather interior Heated front seats Rear wiper Wooden knob on the gear stick (only on Highline models) Electric windows Electric wing mirrors 10 Cd Player Very clean body which has been maintained at no expense spared Electric sun roof (tilt and slide) VR6 Engine in very good condition. Uses no oil. Only ultimate grade fuel is used I am only selling because I need an automatic. Doubt if there is a better one on the road.

  21. VR6 Coil pack

    Hi guys. I'm looking to replace my coil pack on the VR6 but have been quoted £300 from TPS. Is this the usual price? The guy on the phone mentioned that I could use one from a Mondeo ST? I've never heard of this, is this old news? Has anyone successfully done this? Will the wiring even work (leads)? Any help would be great. Thanks.
  22. Candy VR

    Hey all, I have a RR thread elsewhere so the first few posts will be bringing thread to date. Owned the car since the beginning of 2018 and am finally getting around to starting my thread to showcase pictures jobs done to the car. Background on the car:1995 VR6Purchased with 149k with full service history (serviced every year)Standard exampleIt has had a blow-over respray at some point in its original colour - Candy White. Looks nice from a distance but not perfect around deals.Everything worked* on purchaseThe car as it stands today @ 151k: Current list of jobs:- Sunroof no longer works and the replacement I put in at a cost of £170 snapped within a week.- Noticed some rust on the A Pillar behind internal trim. Not visible on the outside and probably caused due the windscreen trim being cracked directly above the rust patch.- ABS light on occasionally. Says it's the Brake Pedal Sensor (mostly).- Suspension wants refreshing- Leather or Recaro's (don't we all).- I want to preserve the underside with underseal.More to follow on the jobs done this year...
  23. Good Morning All, Longtime Corrado owner but first-time poster so be kind! I currently own a black, N reg VR6 Corrado. I have owned it for almost 5 years now after buying it off my previous manager. The car has almost 94k miles on it, which from the MOT history and the fact that I know the history of the car, are genuine. Due to new houses and other much less fun, adult things going on in my life, I have made/been forced into the decision to sell it. The car is in mechanically tip-top condition. It's been both serviced by garages and looked after by myself, depending on the size of the job. During my ownership, I've replaced all discs, pads, wheel bearings, abs sensors, radiator, starter motor, plugs leads, heater matrix, upgraded wiring loom to name but a few. I have also changed the exhaust to a stainless cat back as the original exhaust was held together with welding, tape, and good will... Unfortunately, there is some rust starting to appear on the car. Nothing Major, round the wheel arches, a bit on the door and behind the VR6 badge. I have made an attempt to sell the car before using a recommended and agreeable price (£4k) that I was given by a certain car sales website. I looked about online and it seemed to be one of the cheapest out there, especially when taking in to account the miles on the car. Advertised at this price just attracted punters offering ridiculously low figures and when I further lowered the price, it just further encouraged even lower offers! I got so fed up off this, I took the car off the market and it has been tucked up in the garage ever since. I've come on here to seek advice for two points: 1. What sort of price should I realistically be looking for? Looking online, prices seem to be all over the shop? 2. Would it be worth the time and money to get it to a body shop and get the bodywork sorted? I.e. would I get back the money that I would be willing to spend on it? I'm at my wits end with this so any help would be much appreciated! Chas

  25. 2001 VW Jetta VR6 - 6 speed manual I am in the process of trying to diagnose a DATA BUS short (OBD2 port will not work). Can you unplug the ECU, turn key on to test OBD port and replug the ECU in after without issue? Its a simple question but I cannot find a clear answer anywhere. Am in the process of trying to make a list of modules to check. ECU keeps coming up but there is no way I'm unplugging it without knowing if that will damage it or clear it etc. ABS module and Comfort module are on the list but have not tried yet (taking a damn break from this thing - getting ready for round 2) BACKGROUND: (bought car at auction, runs ok but kinda rough. Starts absolutely fine. Can drive OK but bad lifter noise. Has CEL but cannot communicate through OBD port) Just to clarify, port HAS POWER whether key is on or off. Check engine light is on - ABS light is on - Traction control light comes on once in a while - Washer fluid sensor works fine (light comes on when low) Have checked radio K lIne, is fine (4V-ish) Have checked and replaced cig lighter fuse and #4 fuse I think? (were blown) Still no COMM Both fog light and HID bulb filaments were fried (had HIDs, have since removed and am waiting on plug & play replacement headlight assemblies because old assemblies were illegal) FYI- Intake shift rod was not source of engine noise, neither is the chain (motor was swapped 10,000 km ago, 4000 miles or so) Lots of stuff was replaced with motor swap. Am making progress with this car but I REALLY need to get this OBD port working. Any tips would be appreciated.
