I had the same problem try this.. Put the igintion in the on postion. Find the coil take a screw driver there will be to leads one at a time quickly take the screw driver metal shaft put on one of the leads and ground it and repeat on the other one.. This will reset the computer on the coil it is the only way that I have found to work.. ( DO NOT HOLD THE SCREW DRIVER ON THERE MORE THAN A SPARK) try at you're own risk I thought that it was crazy when I was told but it worked...

I believe you are thinking about the Dark Burgundy Metallic (or Pearl Effect.) It is a dark Black/Red mix.

I wouldnt recommend the dealer right away though it is a good idea to check with them,perferrably a trusted mechanic shop that wont charge you an arm and a leg. But anyways the thermostat should be located under the car more towards your left once your face to face with it if you put it on the hydraulic lift bumper facing you-the left side of the oil pan, you will see a tube about 3 inches , water pump above it, just fallow the radiator downward and it will lead you to that tube wish i could post a picture to clarify this more. While you change you thermostat i recommend a neuspeed thermostat . stock is at about 71*C and this one is 80* delay time but once it opens it cools off so much more and at that check the water pump because it may have never been changed. and the cooling fan for any shorts. hope i could help some how.

Vw corrado g60, wont start.


i used to have a golf g60 and had a similar problem, with mine it was the coil lead.
but it could be a number of things? i sold mine due to the amount of problems i had with it aswell !
if the fuel is still in the cylinder then it has to be an electrical problem as its not igniting. are you getting a spark from the plugs? leave one out and get some one to turn the engine and see if the plug is sparking. if its not then its either the coil, rotor arm, dizzy cap or leads.

Coil / capacitor?


Could be a problem with the reader coil for your transponder immobiliser. The Corrado's ignition key has a transponder chip inside it which is matched to the ECU. There is a small coil inside the ignition which reads the code from the key. These quite often go faulty.
