Go on then I'll go first.

1990 VW Corrado 1.8 16v

- Black diamond brake discs
- Factory calipers painted red all round
- AEZ Pyron 17" wheels fitted with Toyo
- Nology Hot wires HT leads
- Debadged front grill by FK
- Koni springs
- Milltek exhaust system
- K&N
- Upgraded headlights

Plans for the future: 1.8T upgrade with a Garret turbo, chipped and TDI gear box. Would like to get her to 300hp easy with this, any more and i'll need 4x4 and stronger engine bits. I've read they can go as high as 600-700 hp.

OK, 13 NZ new, 1 written off(white one) and 5 imports.

Mine was the 6th one registered on the 28.03.90 chassis number K_014533, in Tornado red, with black/petrol interior. Other than that its standard 1989 "K chassis" spec, which is sunroof.
Sales type 509074, meaning KR 16v with a AGC 5 speed manual. So far its the only one I know of to have manual windows.

- Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorbers
- 23mm front anti roll bar with SuperPro bushes
- MK4 R32 front lower rear suspension bush (solid)
- braided steel brake flexi lines
- 280x22mm front brake upgrade from the G60 Corrado
- Znoelli 12 slot disc rotors all round
- BBM solid front engine mount
- replaced all the suspension rubber bushes and stops
- cleaned and polished wheel arches  :D
- Yokohama A048 intermediate tyres
- external 13 row oil cooler with thermostat takeoff plate
- front upper, lower and rear stress bars
- K&N Air filter
- modified air box
- upgraded headlight loom
- new Volkswagen BBS alloys (single piece)

Have yet to fit, enlarged motorsport sump, VW windage tray and a 9A oil pump.

Mines a nz new '89 16v 1.8 (I think all the NZ new ones were the 1.8 16v with no cat.) And no rear sway bar for some reason. Anybody got a NZ new one with a rear sway bar??  It was standard (front and back) in other countries.
Jamex -40mm springs
Koni adjustable struts
16" alloys, 16 spoke like the factory (dated looking) 15" wheels
EBC Greenstuff brake pads (highly recommended)
Momo evo sport part suede steering wheel (nice on cold mornings!)
de-seamed rear panel
later 3 bar grill
VR6 bonnet
modified airbox
King Dragon air filter

chassis K...014518

I also have a black 2.0 16v Corrado, ex japan, for spare parts. Anybody after any precious Corrado bits???

Neil will be able to fill you in on the details of mine (re # registered, chassis #, etc).

'90 KR 16v, 5 speed man.
Recently repainted in the original Tornado Red, Platinum (grey) interior.
largely standard apart from Koni T/A shocks, Remus Exhaust, MOMO Wheel and the obligatory aftermarket panel filter.

I bought it in '94 to replace my then beloved Golf2 16v, back then it was a one owner car with 27k's on the clock.

Plans? Where to start?

Firstly finish the exterior refurbish.

Then: the parts bin (laundry cupboards *ahem*) is full of stuff accumulated to fit when I get breathing space on the house reno:

280mm Brakes, braided lines, suspension bushes, engine mounts, sway bars, strut braces, short shifter, oil cooler, OZ alloys (they're in the garage) various electrical bits and pieces and some engine upgrade bits   >:D

Still trying to decide on lowering or not.  40mm is a big drop as far as my driveway is concerned.
The Fleet:
Orange Roughy:'90 16v Corrado
'89 Carrera 4. 
'12 330d Touring
Still trying to figure out how to get 'em all to fit in a single garage....

I have a feeling that they were standard here too.  Mine has one, I think Neil's does too.  They are largely hidden inside the rear torsion beam and so are a bit difficult to spot.

As for spare bits...what have you got? (Trying to sound nonchalant...)  I'm looking for a rt headlight reflector, maybe the plastic grille insert that goes in the front bumper and...the plastic striker plate clip on the rear hatch frame that the boot opener assist hits.

Nice Wheels btw.  They really help modernise the car's look.

Yeah the Corrado has quite a long nose overhang, and the factory spoiler is fairly deep. I've lowered 40mm and the chin spoiler does scrape occasionally, and you have to stop short of some carpark "stop" curbs or scrape your way on to it and then scrape your way off embarrassingly. You could consider taking the spoiler off and trimming it slightly, something I toyed with but never got round to.

Can do the rear catch plate thingie, kind of protective of those headlamps though...  does the reflector pop out if you open the light? If it does then I could probably part with that...
