Audi TT 3.2 Quattro DSG project

Evening all

So I've been enjoying the caddy but had the itch for something that I can have some weekend fun with.

Had a certain criteria that I was trying to fulfil

1 was that it had to sound nice (either standard or with a decent exhaust system on)
2 that it had to be refined enough to enjoy as a normal car as well as being Able to put a smile on my face
3 had to be fairly quick

Had a few options, mk1 S3, focus ST, Audi s4, Audi s6 etc

Finally found something that fitted the bill in this












It's in good condition, needs some TLC in regards to paintwork, cleaning etc but it's mechanically sound. The wheels set it off nicely and the sound! GOOD LORD!

Anyway I'll be keeping this thread updated as I work on the vehicle, I have a space in this new unit now so can't wait to get started.

Thanks mate.

It's going to be a learning curve for sure but will be an interesting one

Plenty to do to it!

3.2 TT is that itch I really want to scratch.

I'm toying with your thinking too, got to be practical, not mega expensive but most of all, it's gotta sound beaut.

I'm in-between the 3.2ltr TT and a 3.0ltr Z4, cab's only as it's a fun car that will spend the grotty months in the garage. Just need the bos to sign me off £5k ish and I'll be all over it!!

That TT looks quite tidy, those wheels make it also.

Subbed!

Oooo nice project - I'm sure it'll look great after a decent clean and polish

Wheels really set it off, but why oh why do people put cheap tyres on a performance car ? - hope the previous owners haven't scrimped in other areas

Update 09/04/2015

Right, haven't got the car yet!

Was many to be getting it either today or tomorrow but it has a braking issue that the dealer isn't happy with so it's gone to Audi main dealer at York.

Was a little bit annoyed at first but then after speaking to the dealer today it's getting a full Audi health check as well as a recall on the 6 coils to be replaced so in reality I'm happy to wait!

Will keep updated when I hear more.

You will have fun!

TT's are great cars. Just sold mine, it was the TDI Quattro and was superb in the corners, very tuneable, but a bit harsh on bumpy roads:

What's the brake issue ? It's not the esp light stuck on is it ?

Out of the tt and z4 I would go for the z4 if you prefer driving over looks.
