Certified R Fan (4/9)



  1. This is the kit I used. There is enough in the box for at least two wheels.
  2. There are some really good steering wheel refurbishment kits on the market. I recently used the furniture clinic kit on my tired VW Transporter wheel and it has come up like new. It still looks just as good three months later.
  3. If there is a leak, you should be able to smell the coolant if the put your nose under the bonnet when the engine is up to temp. The smell is very distinctive.
  4. Interesting. I have yet to use launch control after 2.5 years ownership. Maybe I’ll give it a go😈
  5. I would be up for a local meet. Don’t see many R s in my neck of the woods. I used to arrange local Corrado forum meets before Facebook put a demise on the Forum and there are very few Corrados left (mine excluded😀) Also too old for donuts in the car park 😀
  6. I have been quoted £40 from a trusted garage, if the job goes without any issues and £65 from a local mobile mechanic. I will be supplying the coolant and deionised water.
  7. Welcome to the forum. It looks like there are a few of us in the area. I’m 6 miles or so north of Portsmouth.
  8. Thanks for the advice. Looks like a job for my local independent garage👍
  9. VW has just advised that the engine coolant was too weak, undetectable in their words. They have quoted £171 + vat for a coolant change! I plan on doing the job myself using genuine VW coolant which I have just purchased online for £32 delivered. Can anyone provide any tips and are there any pitfalls to look out for? I have completed coolant changes on older VW models👍
  10. Is there any noticeable difference in quality between the OE ones?
  11. Thanks, that is really helpful. Blue chrome it is 👍
  12. I am thinking of changing the colour of my Pretorias. They were black from factory and refurbished in grey metallic by the previous owner. I am tempted to go for the OE silver or metallic anthracite. Could anyone help me by posing some close up pics of the standard silver? The car is Atlantic blue BTW.

    Congratulations on your new R it’s definitely had a lot of cash invested in those upgrades.
  14. Pleased to know that I am not alone. I seldom exceed 60 on the way to work. It’s slightly different on the last stretch home😈
