      Check the ECU numbers if you want to be sure.

      So stay 96 or above and be good?
      yep

      91 Corrado G60

      So uh... What's the general consensus on spring cutting around here? According to the P.O, I'm on Bilstein sport struts and H&R Sport springs, VR6 front strut bushings and poly rear strut bushings (assuming they're for the G60 as he listed it just like that).

      I want to drop the front about 3/4 of an inch, maybe an inch. Is there a reason he went with VR6 front strut bushings? Wouldn't that leave the front a bit higher than G60 bushings would? As you can probably tell I don't know much about the Corrado suspension setup.

      Its an upgrade for the G60. Upgrade to VR6 stiffer & more durable setup/parts...

      That's kind of what I figured... I guess it would probably be a bad idea to go back to VR6 strut bushings then

      Back to the drawing board..

      Cut springs, no! Get the correct springs for your car with the correct spring rates, or coils. If you do not know what you have, pull a tire and get a part number off a spring and cross reference them.

      I wouldn't believe upgrading to VR bushings (which is what you want, harder compound/better design) will raise the car dramatically, if it does, it would be very minute

      I know it was quite frowned upon when I had my Mustang (and I never did it, I had the drop I wanted from the right springs/struts). I guess I just need to do some looking around for different setups, but I'm not about to drop a big chunk on coils at this point in time.

      Im having a Battery drain? I start it and sometimes my volt meter only reads 10.5 vlts and obviously this effects my headlight lumens. Other times I get a full 13.5 volts on the meter. It fluctuates by day. Does anyone have any ideas?

      I've got a few, they're closer up, so none of them show the whole thing. what exactly are you looking for?
      I do not understand why some coupes make the grade and others do not. Everyone knows, for instance, that the Corrado was as tasty as an East End prize fighter with the looks of a Benetti super-yacht. The four-cylinder was good, but the VR6 was about as close as you could get to Ferraridom without buying a Ferrari. And what happened? You all went to the pub instead. -Jeremy Clarkson-

      Buy a Multimeter, there is plenty of documentation available on the web about parasitic battery loss and how to check for it. I'd be willing to bet it has to do with your seatbelts, ABS(if you have it) or your doorlocks(more a vacuum leak in this department), those being the more prone areas for failure. PULL YOUR SEATBELT RELAYS!!!!!!!!!!!

      If you have a bad battery and alternator, that may be your issue. However if its deeper than that I'd say check your security system module. If your security system dosnt work I'm betting that's your issue. Also check your power seatbelts. Aside from that. It's a Corrado, LOTS of things could be draining your battery.

      I'd start with the alternator, since its the easier part to diagnose too

      But yeah, like TheLateJetta said, afterall its a Corrado and lots can go wrong, lol

      Okay guys, I'm a long time V Dub owner of all sorts, Jetta, GTI (Currently), Cabrio and lots of old air cooled stuff. Here's my thing. Always loved the old 16V Scirroco's and Corrados. I'm seriously at the point where I want to find a Corrado VR6 to drive. Question is, are the Corrados any more problematic that the GTIs or the Jettas? I'm not looking for anything with heavy mods but more along the lines of stock with the exception of Wheels (Of Course) maybe intake and exhaust. Gonna be a daily driver. Just looking for some pros and cons and maybe what year I should look for. Like I said I don't know much about the Corrados or their issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot for any help

      More problematic, I'd say so, more expensive, definitely! Daily, eeh maybe if it was unmolested and well maintained close to stock example. 93+ for the VR

      Read thru the FAQ, a ton of info there
