    Saw this car on Friday evening just outside of Leamington Spa (going past the Quality Hotel off the A46) - sadly not in my Corrado so didn't bother flashing or waving or anything, but was a real treat to see one of these super rare beasties on the road :)

    Having done a bit of Googling, seems to be a car known around these parts.. or at least it used to be a few years ago? Is the owner on here and is he local to Leamington?

    Thats the puppy - though it did seem to be wearing some different alloys. Seen them before on a Corrado.. sort of flat faced almost looking like steelies but alloy coloured instead. Quite weird but suited it pretty well :)

    Superb and thanks for the info Dave! I'll give him a wave if I ever see him again! Would love the chance to have a good look around that G60 Limited.. they are probably one of the best VW's ever made, despite my true love being the Rado!

    Cheers :)

    Got 2 of the 4 wheels refurbished. Does any one know what size the original tyres on this car. Toyo 215 45 15s just came off it but I dont want the same again. Was looking at 205 50 15s goodyear NCT5. Any comments welcome.

    yes 205/50/15 was the standard fit, but I would run 195/50/15 as they don't look as balloned

    what happened to it's mate G6 DUB?

    found a pic from VW Driver few years back

    Reviving an old topic.... I went in G6LTD when I was at uni, was an absolute rocket ship, and they weren't shy about giving it some beans!! Gary and Claire were the CGTI hosts back then, cannot believe they had 2 of them... madness.
