      At this point I am looking for a built Vr6, a rebuilt G60, a 1.8t swap, or a 24v Vr6 swap. I would also be into a repainted corrado even if it has no engine work at all.

      You do realize that there is hundreds of corrados for sale on here that you can go through yourself and pick the ones that you like and are what you consider close??? Also, no ones going to take someone serious that changes their mind weekly. Maybe using common sense while trying to locate a corrado will yield you better results???
      Also, there is a regional section where you can post and might find people in there selling that are closer to you.

      I see waht your sayin there. But there are plenty of times that somebody PMs me saying that they dont have a FS thread yet or that they contact me about their car and I never would have found it. And about changing my mind weekley... I said no longer looking for one because I had found one, but it didnt turn out to be what I thought it would so now I am looking for one again. BTW your car is awesome and I love it but I just dont want a car with an aftermarket turbo because I dont have the skill to work on cars like that. Also you are very far

      Any Corrado for a first car will be a hell of a learning experience, hope daddy's rich, or you have a lot of desire to read a bentley to figure out why your car is or isn't doing x or y.

      I'd stay away from anything turbo'd/swapped, a nice stock SLC will be good to start with.

      1990 Audi Coupe Quattro Tornado Red

      I'd also consider Audi Coupe Quattro's from 1990 or 1991. They have A LOT in common with a Corrado, but from my experience, are a bit more practical. I have owned 2 Corrado's and 2 Audi CQ's, and while Corrado's are raw, and a blast to drive, it's an endless struggle keeping it able to perform well. CQ's are a bit more refined, and the 2.3 5 cyl motors are bullet proof. Just a suggestion though.

      Also, if you find the perfect car for you, and you trust the seller, and have receipts for previous work, consider shipping it. It's much cheaper to transport a vehicle than most people think.

      Contact me for a quote on anything your interested in via pm, and I'll give you a quick estimate.

      Thats why I'm saying I dont want an aftermarket turbo. Also my dad isn't paying for the car, gas, insurance, maintenance, or anything. I don't know where you got that idea from. Also I pm'd him to say that I am not interested
