I went to pick my car up from the workshop yesterday, the man was on the telephone, I overheard him say: “I’ll take that two-week cruise as I’m about to get some dough,” and then he saw me standing there and said: “I have to go!” He handed me my keys and said: “Your car’s as good as new, it’s lucky that you came in now, before that motor blew, the pistons were all blistered and the valve stems shot to hell, the manifold was old with holes, and ugly plugs as well! “The oil had boiled because it was a lump up in the pump, loose rings had worn the kingpins down and dumped them in the sump, the crankshaft and the petrol tank too rusted to repair, and damn it if the camshaft wasn’t jammed by bearing wear! “Your carby’s far beyond recall, the jets too wet and thin, the diff was iffy, so I fitted pin replacements in, the CV joints were pointy and your front end bent and old, it’s lucky that I stock your make of intake manifold! “I couldn’t take the risk, your disc pads had to be replaced, transmission bolts were faulty and the fluid thick as paste, then third gear nearly broke, then first, and then I lost reverse, I put a whole new gearbox in, as second gear was worse! “Your steering wheel appeared to be in need of special care, the seat belts felt all shot, I got a neat new front-seat pair, the clutch was much the same and all the headlights seemed quite crook, I think the blinkers might be too, but didn’t dare to look! “The pinion rack lacked tension and its screws were all bad news, my alternator tester says that yours had blown a fuse, the bonnet lock was shocking and the doors were poorly done, I changed the hinges, handles too, they’re just like new, old son. “I sprayed the radiator out, and filled the anti-freeze, adjusted all the air-con ports to twenty-three degrees, I nuked the duco with some special crack-resistant wax, you owe me seven thousand bucks, including federal tax!” Considering I’d booked it in to fit a speakerphone, I figured this excessive, but I didn’t like to moan, I wrote a check and drove home feeling like a stupid jerk, the car was running smoothly but the cellphone didn’t work!

The Car: VW Audi Group C550 VW Corrado

Sales Thread: http://forums.forzamotorsport.net/forums/thread/2690905.aspx

First Impressions: Another simple but simply stunning looking paint from VAG. Once again the balance of whitespace and logos is just right, and the use of colour works perfectly. No frills just good looking paint. The Corrado also drives beautifully, plenty of power on tap but it's nicely reigned in with the grip.

On The Tracks: Tsukuba was my first time in the car, so each lap got quicker as I looked for the limits. I found I only needed 3rd and 4th to get around the track as the torque would pull the car nicely out of the turns. 1:00.062 laptime was the fastest.

Mugello Short showed that the Corrado had a bit of speed available on the straight, and could hold a lot of it in the turns to give a 1:01.681 best lap.

Silverstone GP saw a 2:01.106 laptime on the third lap with some lower splits coming in lap 4. That was until I hit the kerb a little too hard and lost all the time advantage in the last section. The VW can do better if I do.

Suzuka West's straights and turns posed no problems for the nicely balanced Corrado, for some reason I couldn't get everything together though and only managed to pilot the VW to a 1:26.431.

New York Reverse saw a tidy 126mph from the Corrado on the straight, not enough to worry the missile cars but enough to find me hitting a 1:07.073 lap in a grippy car.

The Verdict: Some paints will just grab you and you don't know why, this one does it for me. It's a tidy and simple paint but one which really works on the Corrado, giving it a race car feel but still not looking like a straight up race car livery. I like the paint, I also like how easy the car is to drive. It has plenty of torque, and speed to get you out of the turns and up the straights, but it is all kept in check with just the right amount of grip in the turns even under throttle coming out. Another thumbs up then for the VW Audi Group and another car worthy of your garage space.

GT: Dougyt40

Some laptimes so far:
Mugello: 2:02.362,
Mugello Short: 1:01.730,
Road Atlanta Short: 1:00.933,
Sebring Club: 1:13.623,
Silverstone National: 1:02.736,
Motegi West: 40.926.
