      Good to know my '92 VR6 is still worth something. ~186k miles and relatively stock.

      Nice deal! I'd be very jealous, but I'm holding out for a VR6.

      What elements of the '93 do you wish you had? Is it the coil pack vs. distributor, or are there other things I don't know about?

      If a 92 VR pops up that is really minty I would NOT pass up on it just because it has a G60 interior. It has a charm of its own IMO.

      So its more than doubled in price? I thought the air-cooled Porsche market was nuts.

      1992 VW Corrado SLC, Original Owner
      03-20-2017 06:18 PM #36
      I am the original owner of 1992 VR6 Corrado, currently at 240K miles.
      Drive it more than 2 times a week to work.
      The car is completely stock with original engine never touched expect timing chains. And most of all, ORIGINAL FOG LIGHTS :-), not sure why it doesn't crack like everyone else.

      It takes dedication to keep it at this age and as reliable daily drive.

      Its heat that cracks the fogs. So If you don't use them, or put blanks in you should be ok..

      Keep the fogs on only when its foggy and they won't crack. Problem is, most American use their fogs in all weather. I guess thinking its cool? Beats me, but it will crack the lenses on a Corrado toute suite. The glass can't deal with the interior heat and exterior cold, so they crack like when you put a hot glass in cold water.

      I was specifically looking for a 92, so it was exactly what I was looking for.

      they are out there, you just have to be patient. Ive been seeing a lot of stock G60s for sale recently. Buying a stock car is always best in my opinion, but you may have to settle for one with some mods if you don't feel like waiting too long. I saw a pretty clean Brombeer one locally to me a couple weeks ago that wasn't to far from stock for $7k

      I picked one up recently, too, from a private owner/mechanic. Overpaid but given the mileage and overall condition and proximity to my home, went for it. A '92 VR6, with roughly 83,000 miles.

      Looking to buy one to part out to mine, as well as any leads on parts, and general recommendations. Everything's stock but air filter.

      Karl...............I will be selling my Corrado to someone close to you. I believe he wants to keep in touch with the local Corrado owners in the area. Never knew you were in San Jose. Cat and I usually try to keep tabs of the Corrado owners in the Bay Area. For someone like you that's an original owner is ''awesome".
