    I like this car, theres a good aftermarket market for it too for tuning. Good stock engine choices as well.

    Just check out VWVortex. Go to the Corrado forums. Some hot 'rados there.

    i think most Corrado's are worn out........at least the ones i have seen in Holland are in really bad shape.
    But it would be great to have one in good condition
    FERRARI RULEZZZ

    Yeah, I think you're right. Same story with Porsches 924/944/928 and old BMW M3's....sad

    The G60 was a real "sleeper" car.

    Enjoyed the delights of one in the early 90s - and if ANY of you post saying you werent' born then you WILL be given an offical MetA-bitch-slap !!!!

    It's too bad the G-lader was a terrible design that required way too much maintenance (full rebuild recommended every 40-50,000 miles). They just broke way too much. The SLC's were a much better car, but they're very hard to find anymore in good condition. And if you do find a nice clean example, you're going to pay through the frickin' nose for it.

    WTF ?
    Where did you get that info from ?
    1991 G60 - we had two in the company.
    Each was "driven enthusastically" one racked up 80,000 miles and the other over 100,000.
    NOT ONE REBUILD !
    And reminder , these were DRIVEN cars.
    In fact the longest time in a garage was a front wing repair after understeering due to excessive entry speed.
    Were these cars properly serviced ??

    BTW, as well as the Corrado thre were 2 imported original Golf G60s one of which was used as recce car. AGAIN no major problems with the engine, BUT again they was properly serviced and treated to the best oil. ( The rally cars were all Mobil 1, so there was plenty of barrels of it around )

    See http://www.carsurvey.org/review_16389.html for confirmation !

    I DO think there are soem major issues with performacne cars outside of Europe and MY opinion is down to cheap service materials and bad servicing
