Cynic - he had a black LHD g60 for parts on his red 16v with facelift bits on. Since sold to a non vasker I think? Had a good smack in the bum!

It was a Jap import 2.0 16V one... the rear end of the black one was used to repair the bum of the red one after it was rear ended while parked at night.

I sure do, it's the white import (originally 1.8 16V, then 1.9 16V, now 2.0 16V)

Bloody hell that engine has worn a lot  :D

Hi Nik.  Unfortunatley Club Supercar didn't get off the ground.  I couldn't get enough takers in Chch to make it viable within the budget I was prepared to spent on promotion etc prior exposing my self to the risk of buying the cars.  Trying to launch in the middle of the "Global Financial Crisis" probably didn't help either.  Seem to be pretty busy these days with lots of time overseas and family time when I'm at home.

Hi Rossi, it's been a long time since the "Corrado corral" shoot for Classic Car Mag. Hope all is well.
I'm after some RH Door plastics if you still have them as the G60 got broken into before Xmas and is now leaking when wet.

Hi all, I am a happy bunny. Just bought the Black one off James. Picking her up on Sunday. I had a G60 Corrado (nugget yellow) rhd in the Uk as well as an Oak Green Mk2 Golf Gti. I have been driving around in a BMW 318is Motorsports 1996 which is a great drive but I have just put her up for sale on trademe. Great car but I had to get the Corrado.

Thanks for the Welcome. I think it was a good buy although I haven't seen the car yet. Picking it up on Sunday. The car is pretty original and want to keep it that way. first thing is to get the paint damage fixed. The heater core has worn out so need to fix that. Not 100% sure what that means to be honest. I don't have a stack of cash so it will be on a as and when basis. need to get hold of her first and remedy the basics, clean her up inside and start looking for things like interior mats. The wheels look like they need a refurb, so either do that or possibly replace with a set of 9Jx16 rears/7.5J Borbet A wheels with flat centres, although I would probably need to import these from Germany. I do a lot of buying and selling on ebay in Germany/uk with VW/BMW wheels so I know my way around and can liaise with the Germans. If anyone has any recommendations of what I "must do" then let me know. :D

As per another message I have just posted, the Black corrado is in fact officially Graphite. When I picked her up I thought she looked like a gunmetal grey/graphite but definitely not black. On the service records at Continental motors and on the documentation she is listed as black but when I have had some paintwork done recently the colour code is Graphite.

just thought I would clear that one up for the record. Will get a pic up next wekend now that she looks half presentable!
