The time has come for me to sell my beloved Corrado. I bought it July 29th, 2006 and have done a TON of custom work. The car was built with the mindset of Im never going to sell it but I really want to get into a z06 corvette or buy a house. The love I once had for the car just doesnt seem to be there anymore as my interests have changed. Ive been contemplating selling it for a while now I even had the car painted so that Id love it morethis patched my love for a while but it just isnt for me anymore. You can get in this car and go. Everything Ive done is try to make it OEM+ with reliability. I want everything to work on the car like OEM without flipping any situations or tackiness. Below is a quick breakdown of the mods done and some pics below. I believe the car has somewhere around 95k miles on it now, however the gauge cluster says 160k because its an obd2 cluster from a Passat. I do have an SLC cluster that can go with it if desired with aprox 97k on it.

Pros: Get in and go. Show stopper. Beautiful car for someone to finish.
Cons: Engine bay is still tornado red. I had intentions to get it painted to match the exterior this winter. The rear wing works intermidantlyI havent been able to narrow it down. Sometimes while youre driving itll go up, then a few days later itll come back down. I think it has to do with the control module. The power steering rack is leaking at the connection to the column and needs to be replaced.
Asking $15,000. Posting this now in hopes it will sell sometime this spring with tax return season. Gives someone plenty of time to come up with the cash and plan accordingly. The car just sits in my garage
so no worries about it getting scratched and dinged up. Im sure there are things Im missing let the pics speak for themselves. Check out my build thread (in signature) for more pics of the progress of the car over the past 9.5 years.
