Re: (Golf8VTurbo25)

sounds like it needs a little work but should be worth 2000 if it runs good, the engine alone is worth that

I think there is a set price to bring ANY corrado back to "like new" (stock) condition. its somwhere around 12-15K.
If you buy a corrado for 2500, you will need to spend another 10K to get it brand new again.
If you spend 10K on a corrado, its going to need another 2-5K to get it perfect.
I spent 7K on mine, and it needs various little things here and there, headlights are cracked, sunroof was fixed, head gasket will need to be changed soon, timing chains, slight body work, etc, etc..
to get it back to brand new will cost about 7000K.
I Think thats just how it goes.

Re: (kevwithoutacorrado)

hell you can spend $12500 on a perfect vr6 and spend $2500 more on it the day after.
Fortunately our cars are like lepers, even the perfect car today, might fall apart the next week.
welcome to the corrado addiction and lack of pocket book.
I guess if we all heeded the warnings of others we might be richer and driving something else

logic defies buying a corrado. It's a true love-hate relationship.
