      Very nice! I like the color as well, it reminds me of our old Fiat 125p my dad owed when we lived in Poland. It was the only one around with that color.

      Props on the finish on this car!

      Hello everyone! Thanks for the comments!

      Interior:


      Dash, before the Recaros:


      Bodykit:








      The color changes all the time under different light conditions. These are the closest to the real life under bright sunshine, at least on my monitor.
      Ride height is higher than current - it was done before the coilovers were installed.




      If you are interested - here is what I started with: http://www.drive2.ru/cars/volkswagen...52435218/#post

      Also if you would like to get higher resolution images - just PM me.

      Definitely the best Corrado I've seen in a few years. Needs a feature in Performance VW for sure.

      BTW, your english is great for being from Ukraine

      Kick Ass color! Reminds me of the Porsche Cup races with all those crazy colors. Check out how far he took the resto on this VR. BTW, NADA just anounced that white is the new favorite color in the States. It was silver for 7 years before that.

      I love it. I think the color is great, body kit looks awesome (like an OEM add-on), the wheels are beautiful and the interior is immaculate. This is as close to a perfect 10 as it can get in my book. Well done!

      Love the interior...........after seeing more pictures, it's starting to grow on me. Maybe minus the body kit.
