      I went through all this tshooting, but it was my pressure switch that was causing the ABS/Ebrake light to stay on with no codes thrown, but with brake boost. Do you have brake boost or the hard...

      Sounds like you'll need to track down the previous owner's mod mistakes. It sounds like you might have a few electrical gremlins causing failures of electrical components. Wiper motors last...

      The ABS system is actually quite robust if looked after. When you turn the key to ON you should hear the pump run but for no longer than a minute as it pressurizes. If it runs on and on, it will...

      Keep the fogs on only when its foggy and they won't crack. Problem is, most American use their fogs in all weather. I guess thinking its cool? Beats me, but it will crack the lenses on a Corrado...

      Shame, that was a 2 owner car that was under 4k. They don't come up often. If I see one locally I'll post here.

      Not sure how common that is. The VR6 engine often outlasts the rest of the car. My first one has 195k miles on the motor, and still pulls great, and is clean as a whistle inside. I do get some...

      Not sure how having the previous IP address would help. The registration ends in 5 days, so if someone can register it and host it that would work. But who has the files? Ahn or Dennis? Dennis...

      The cables are hard to adjust correctly. A small change at the tranny, even 1/8" makes a big difference at the shifter. Its really a matter of trial and error so it can take some time to get it...
