Cheers!

Probably best summed up in this thread

https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-...-you-can/30815

1165 (approx. 900 RHD) were built by quattro GmbH (Audi Sport) in 2005-2006 making it the only fully German built Mk1 (8N) TT - and only one with a chassis/VIN number beginning with WUA. The final assembly for all other Mk1 was Györ (Hungary).



Bi-colour (Phantom black pearl paint for roof, front grilles, door mirrors, rear spoiler lip and rear diffuser).
S-Line exterior (bumpers and extended rear spoiler from the 3.2v6).
Battery relocation to the boot.
Additional rear chassis bracing.

S-line sports suspension (marginally lower/stiffer).

Black tail pipes.
Exclusive - diamond cut staggered alloys - 8Jx18 front/8.5Jx18 rear.
Body coloured rear arch spats/extensions.
Deletion of rear seats and replaced with model specific brace bar, partition net and floor trim.
Recaro Pole Position bucket seats in Alcantara/leather with body-colour/lacquered rears.

Seat heating deleted.
Alcantara trimmed gear knob, steering wheel and handbrake.
"Quattro Sport" - glovebox trim.

Deletion of rear parcel shelf.

Couple of weeks ago I spent an enjoyable Sunday morning blatting down a wet A14/M1 to an event at Donington Park meeting up with a fellow QS owner.

 Felt really good to stretch its legs but spent the afternoon underneath cleaning as a result!

QS no. 79/1165 (Phantom Black) and 961/1165 (Misano Red/Phantom Black).

More interior detailing.

So today I completed the replacement of the drivers side window toggle switch alloy trim.

It requires the removal of the door card so I was able to give everything a deep clean and remove any dust. All plastics were treated with Gtechniq C6 Matte Dash and with the Leather(ish) material on the door I cleaned the stitching with a toothbrush and wiped it over with Dr Leather wipes.

Another little area improved!

Yesterday I had to resolve an issue causing the ESP warning light to be on - I swear I bloody hate that light! Seems you can always rely on it to come on just when you think your fault free.

The fault code produced indicating a steering angle sensor issue



I bit of investigation and I deduced its as a result of rotating the slip ring whilst the wheel was off meaning it wasn't centred as required and the ribbon inside unevenly wound.



Theres 4 full rotations of the slip ring possible from lock to lock - so I centralised it at two rotations which also produced a yellow dot visible in the clear window top right as confirmation.



Once the wheel was back on and battery reconnected the warning light had gone - a few turns to each full lock and still no light so hopefully thats a fix without the need for VCDS to reset!?

What a great read.

Congratulations on what you have achieved with the TT, it looks immaculate.

I think this level of detail is is what we all wish we could achieve and I look forward to seeing how much further you go!
