1993 Corrado 2.9 VR6

This winter would be first time my corrado wont see any snow!!! After a lot of work and new paint my c will stay
in garage for the winter. A white Polo Fox will be the
winter-beater. Ugly as hell but takes me from a to b
and needs less than 6.6L/100km !!!!

So let me know if you drive your C in winter or anything else?

1990 Corrado 1.8 16V

Me too!!! I always drive my 2.0 16V everyday... in winter I usually use winter tyres, but on the snow I often have some problems... with the same tyres on my Golf Mk3, I felt more safe on the snow...
But I think that the real winter enemies for our C. are salt and gravel that are present on the streets during very cold months, to prevent ice over asphalt... but I still have not repaint my Corrados...
Here where I live the temperatures can be about -10/15°C during the most cold winter nights... and during the days could be about 0-5°C
Have a good winter

Yes, last year I drove my Corrado true the winter. But this year I started a new job as a sales manager so that means also I having a company car, a Nissan Micra 2005 , The Nissan will give the Corrado some rest true the winter.

1989 Corrado 1.8 G60

I've bought my first corrado just a week ago.
And i'm driving it nearly every day.
Today the temperature in here was -20 degrees almost whole day. I know it's crime to do things like that to rado, but i was forced to do that 'cause my wife was drivng my "real" winter car (octavia '98 tdi)

I bought my C December of 2005 and I drove it all winter. Bought a set of snow tires and I'll tell you, my car handled better in the snow than my girlfriends Pathfinder! I was passing SUV's that had AWD with no problem.

1990 Corrado 1.8 16V

Def dont drive the Rado during the winter, got an A4 and a 88 Audi Gt that share duties for that. Found myself in an early season snow once when I first got that car and was a tense ride home. Not gonna risk it now. Its not always yourself you have to worry bout sliding around in the snow anyway.
