If a write off you would still make a few bob selling the parts for sure, even in NZ/OZ.

Not in NZ you won't, when I wrecked my black parts car all I got was wasters or idiots wanting plastic clips and crap like that. Or they expected bits for buttons. I ended up keep the whole lot, still have everything bar the engine and box.
Too much power is almost enough.

I Know how you feel mate, White mk1 escort Mexico's were my Achilles heal,
Had two of them both bought on the Friday evening & both written off and completely destroyed on the sunday night.
!st I have no recollection of at all the 2nd I vaguely remember standing on the bonnet after climbing out through the windscreen wiping the blood off the bonnet with my sleeve worried about the paintwork, the car was wedged in a 4" gap all the way to the filler cap  :'( :'(

I hope yours is minor mate and can be fixed, your fault of someone else's?

You should buy M's one to replace it, it looks tidier than the red one was anyway.

Lane is not wrecking a Corrado.

Member 'M' is the only one who is likely to have parts, otherwise look overseas.

Lane had a red one in bits but it was several years back.  He may have something secreted around the place, but your best bet is a passat or golf 3.  They shared many parts with the Corrado.  If you can't find something locally try ebay or autohausaz.com
