My Corrado was pretty much completely standard body wise when I bought it except for some Welsh flag number plates, and slightly tinted rear windows. It didn't stay standard for too long as you can see from the pictures.

I wish I'd never sold the Porsche design 90 wheels, they were 8jx16 all around, and looked great with the polished finish and black detailing, but I had a hankering for my favorite wheels of all time, Borbet A with black centers.

Speaking of Borbet A. After I hit something in the road and scratching one, I saw fit to have them refurbished, sadly 'The Wheel Specialist' at Manchester completely ruined them! As you can see in the pictures, the finish was unacceptable. In fact it was so bad that the center caps would no longer fit due to the amount of runs! I was told they could not complete the job. The wheels were blasted back to bare alloy again and that's how I had to take them away.

The Borbet B wheels were bought as a quick replacement, and although the Borbet A 9x16 were and still are one of my favorite wheels of all time, I've grown to like the Borbet B, also 9x16.

I modified the front bumper in a slightly different way from the norm, as I was fitting a different FMIC (Front mount intercooler) from the norm. I wanted to make it look the part, including looking subtle and unnoticeable while also being functional. It worked well with a definite improvement in warmer weather, but I've since grown to dislike the look and I'll probably go for the usual Rallye FMIC in the future. You can see more about the sierra cosworth FMIC on the engine page.

The air ride suspension courtesy of Accuair E-Level management, I-Level WiFi add on, and AirLift struts was fitted because I bought a new house and the Corrado would not have got up my driveway. This also tied in with the fact that my FK Konigsport coilovers decided to blow up! See more on the Air ride page.
