1993 Volkswagen Corrado VR6 - 5 day auction with no reserve for sale
A lovely example of the Volkswagen Corrado VR6 in Pearl Green. a car described by many as a future classic and one of the best front-wheel drive cars of the 1990s and a very rare sight in Northern Ireland. It started its life in Sussex. then moved to Wales. then over to Belfast.Good points
Excellent condition overall – the most important consideration in a car this age. Arches. sills and underside are as solid as a rock
Only 102. 00 miles
MOT until 24 July 2017 (Northern Irish - much stricter than mainland UK)
Standard apart from:
Upgraded headlight loom and Osram Nightbreaker bulbs
a Sony head unit and
tasteful stainless exhaust
Excellent tyres – Continental Premium Contact on the rear and Firestones on the front. with tons of tread left.
Original touches like dealership sticker in rear window intact. first aid kit present and unused
Original cloth interior - actually quite rare these days as people tend to swap them for leather. and uncut parcel shelf.
Partial service history (complete from my ownership) and folder of receipts and old MOTs
Just had a service
Rocker cover gasket just changed
Although I can't prove it. the timing chain and tensioner appear to have been changed.
Eligible for classic insurance
New master and slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch fitted at the same time – a common problem fixed
Rear washer motor replaced
Lower radiator cross member/ support often rots on Corrados. Fitted freshly-refurbished one this year ahead of MOT.Not-so-good points
The engine uses a bit of oil. but not to overly worrying levels. I've been putting a litre in every two months or so. but as mentioned above I've just had the rocker cover gasket replaced which I was led to believe was at least partly responsible.
Sunroof sits correctly. tilts and does not leak. but does not slide - common fault
Occasionally cuts out at low revs - a common Corrado problem. possibly the idle stablisation valve needing cleaned.
Different key for driver's lock
MFA's oil temperature and MPG functions are blank.
Work carried out by previous owner
Head taken off
Valve stem seals replaced
New wiring loom – OBD2 to OBD1
Cam followers/tappets replaced (new from Volkswagen. all 12)
The coil pack was replaced
Compression tested – all good in six cylinders
head skimmed. pressure tested
inlet and and exhaust gaskets
water pump. thermo/water housing
radiator fansHe also may have replaced the camshaft oil seals – he can't remember for sure
I've been very pernickety with the negative points. Overall this is an excellent example of this modern classic. and needs to go to someone who will put in the effort to make it perfect.
This car's value will go and up and up if it's properly maintained. with some examples being listed for ludicrous money.
Cash on collection only.
