      $3600 FIRM

      Just got it back from the mechanic yesterday, so I'm bumping my thread and adding changes. I stored it over the last winter, but drove it maybe twice a month on nice days. Went to drive it in March, and it was making a horrible grinding noise (alternator). I just got around to repairing that, along with a new battery, serp belt, belt tensioner, water pump, and A/C compressor. Pretty much everything on the accessory belt was changed. Now I would rather sell it or trade it then have to put insurance on it for the summer. Please e-mail with any questions!! meyerz@gmail.com !!!

      1993 Corrado SLC. Many new parts and recent work.
      17" BBS RKII wheels in good shape no rash.
      Also includes 15" wheels and winter tires. Sport editions off tirerack.com.
      205/40/17 Falken ZE-502 tires installed last year.
      H&R Ultra Ultra Low Coilovers bought used and installed last spring. Ride great, no bounce. Not seized, you can turn the rings with two fingers once you break them apart with the spanners.
      Newer Sachs clutch, pressure plate, t/o bearing whole deal with 10lb aluminum flywheel.
      Newer Brembo brake rotors and mintex pads.
      195k on chassis, VR6 was swapped in 2005. Donor motor had 70k, so probably at least 120,000 on motor but it runs good with no issues!
      The sunroof works, the wing works! No cracks in the dash! Clean interior with just one rip in the bolster on driver's seat.

      As usual, has a few 'Corrado' problems but nothing major. Currently located in Mankato, MN.

      Would definitely be willing to trade it for a station wagon, and I can include cash for a better vehicle. Or I can trade down. Would be interested in: Subaru wagon, Volvo 240 wagon, Audi A4 wagon. Or MKIV Jetta 2.0 or 1.8t sedan. Or anything TDI, but people usually hold on to those. Or something not as practical that I would love to trade it for would be a clean MKI Rabbit GTI.

      Pictures below, more upon request.













      Best way to contact me is to e-mail meyerz@gmail.com . I don't check vortex everyday but e-mails go straight to my cell phone.

      I'm not fond of the paint, but I'll think about it. I'd probably want to swap suspensions and/or keep my BBS wheels if we traded.
