      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.

      I absolutely love this Corrado, at first I was meh about the side skirts and color...but I quickly got over it. It's an especially nice turnaround from what you started with also.

      Nice looking car!
      I`m born in Bulgaria and 2003 I bought 1992 Corrado VR6. I still own the car (now has EIP Turbo Stage 2 + more). Now I`m working for NGP Racing -Tech. and own 20th , 2008 R32, 2004 R32 -future project 800hp+ car!. But I`ll not sell my Corrado in Bulgaria, unfortunately stay whole year until I get back and drive it for few weeks!

      Why does that even bother you? He probably did that because he is close to the guy and wanted to make a connection.

      Friends, thank you all once again for the comments.

      Front bumper lip is custom fg molded over stock 90mm lip. Bought it that way, personally couldn't understand if i like it or not, so just in case I bought another original bumper with stock 90mm lip and painted during respray. Haven't tried it on thought - got used to current look.

      For those commenting on color, bodykit, not OEM+ etc. - this build was an attempt to make something different while retaining "classic" approach. Technically it is def OEM+ - VAG color (Lamborghini is owned by VAG), period-correct wheels, seats and side skirts, and the front is just a minor amendment - it even retains original lower grill. However it looks different and fresh, and that's what I like about it. And the fact that it gets thumb ups from old-time vortexeers and corrado owners tells me that I didn't went over the top. I know that it is love-or-hate for some people but it is fine for me - better that way than being average.

      However I don't stop there. I do want 100% classic corrado build (sans shaving, as I want it fully functional grand tourer which I failed to achieve with the green one). So the second one is already in the making: http://translate.google.com/translat...pakovr6%2F2%2F

      Sorry for google translate - original is in Russian but that will give you some perspective. This one will be stock + wheels + coils + interior. And for that I already sourced new OEM late year ('98) VR6 which was still in original dealer packaging when I got it. Just to hint you on the level of "stock" i'm aiming for

      As an end note - I like VW community for passion for their cars. For me this passion is not as much owning and modifying as actually saving some great cars, which may vanish due to their rarity and overall abuse, neglect and bad modifications. We will see where it will take me

      Cheers everyone!
