What do I get if I join?

The VW Corrado Club of Great Britain (CCGB) is a member of 'The Association of British Volkswagen Clubs'. The CCGB has a fully dedicated Chairman & Committee and for an annual membership fee of £15 (UK Pounds) offers you the following benefits:

Discounted Insurance, discounted parts, reduced servicing costs, club merchandise, regional / club / family events. The club has a keen selection of members across the UK, organising regular meets, etc.

Along with a membership card you will also receive a bi-annual club magazine called 'The Sprinter'. This Sprinter magazine (which takes it's name from the origins of the word Corrado) is a colour supplement containing information about previous and forthcoming club events, articles written by members, varied technical tips, and advertisements for parts wanted or for sale.

The club offers a 'Tech Know' service where Corrado experts and other Tech Know team members will endeavour to answer your questions for you.

Do I have to own a Corrado?

No you don't!

One of the original premises of the club was that members didn't have to own a Corrado to join. This not only enables prospective owners the ability to obtain advice about what to look out for when buying a Corrado etc, it also allows anyone with an interest or passion in the car to become a member whatever their circumstances.
