So following on from my tradition of having 2 cars of each model ( had 2 mk1 clios over 7 years ) i thought i would continue this with a second TT after 4 years of owning the 1st :lol: TBH my hand has been forced on this one as my current TT developed a serious paint issue a few years back and started to look like absolute shit but remained mechanically sound until recently when the turbo oil seal decided to give in and started to smoke a little :x i then decided rather than paint my car ( £2000+) and replace turbo (£800+) i would get another TT in a different colour and slightly later reg as i was very happy with my previous TT and it was extremely reliable being driven every single day over my 4 years of ownership and never letting me down..this new car as some big shoes to fill in that respect :lol: I will be stripping down the silver TT and selling it in parts once i have taken off what i need for this car :p

Enough of that,

The new car :p 53 reg In Misano Red 94k , Red leather although i will be selling this and fitting my black interior.. i do love them just not in a red car. Refurbed gloss black genuine RSTT Wheels which again are getting sold as i am getting mine redone in silver and will be fitting them instead. Tint's will be getting removed as i am not a fan... it currently on apex springs but again getting removed as i have Koni Coilovers going on from the silver car. Have actually got a lot to change/ fit over the next few months but will try keep this updated as i go along :D

Looks great - I'm with you on the red/red combo... A bit OTT. Odd really as I think black/black is rather sombre but red/red seem a tad too much :eek:

Have fun swapping :p

Yep the red on red is defiantly not the right combo... they look stunning in black, gray, avus and silver cars imo just not red :lol: Luckily have a nice full black leather interior to go in so the red stuff will be going for sale on here or ebay :p The Black interior suit all colours :p

Shame about your silver TT, was the whole reason i bought one in silver lol

Red looks good man!
Cheers mate , is a shame as if it wasn't for the paint going bad would of loved to keep it and would of dealt with the turbo with a hybrid but with the current prices of mk1 TT's it has to be a very special car to warrant a £2000+ paint job

always had my eye on your TT :wink:

Would you be interested in doing a deal with my mint alcantara interior against your red leather?
No Thanks , i have a very good condition black interior if you are interested though :wink:

razoredge said:
red /red combo must be quite rare, are you sure you want to change it?
I know i said i was going to change them in my post above but after living with them for a few days they really are growing on me and make the interior a lovely place to sit so may just keep them... undecided yet :lol:

Done a few bits over the last couple of days , number 1 was to change the thermostat which resulted in plenty of cuts and grazes on my arms and a snapped dipstick tube... i swear to god i hate that job, absolutely no access :x also fitted a new bosch maf sensor from ecp ( £62 ) and new tube from TPS ( £5 ) . Phoned up Audi to find its still due a recall for coil packs so booked in for 30th :p Fitted a few bits to the Engine bay from the Silver car which are the Bling kit for the panels/covers, polished charge pipe , Forge 007p, along with the metal plate and dipstick. Fitted the Liquid TT as well. Also been pretty busy stripping down the Silver car... few pics :D

Looks even better in the metal - nice to meet you the other day, cleaned the valence up and have now wrapped it up for my birthday!

Sad when you have to collect your own birthday presents lol!

By the way, I'm still having nightmares about the paint on the silver one ha ha ha!

A bit of a big update.... ( i knew i would be shit at keeping up with this :lol: )

Anyway few weeks in to ownership and while driving from from the Chinese take away my clutch pedal decides its had enough of my ridiculously stiff clutch ( probably on its way out ) and decided to sink to the floor leaving me some nice bits in the foot well :roll: Luckily i wasn't to far away from home and was able to get the car home in 2nd gear... At this point i was still breaking the silver TT so decided to see what the pedal was like on that and to my surprise it had been welded before :p so whipped it off and set about fitting it to the red car, few hours later and i had a fully working clutch pedal again although i did notice the rod on the master cylinder had bent ( probably from the pedal snapping.. ) so will also need changing..

The snapped pedal:


At this point i decided it was time to sort a new clutch / dmf / master cylinder to get this red car to how my silver one was ( lovely soft clutch pedal due to a new clutch/dmf/gearbox ) so did a bit of shopping around and got a new Luk clutch kit with the correct DMF and Master cylinder from GSF with 45% discount total cost was £450 , this lot will be getting fitted by 4Rings in Dartford on the 18th July along with a few other bits...

New clutch/dmf/master cyclinder:


Also decided i wanted some new hoses in this TT so have replaced most of them although this is an ongoing process... so far have changed the Tip to a Red Badger Bill V.2.2 3" Hose with S2000 K&N, Red Forge Turbo to charge pipe hose, N75 and Recirc valve hoses, Both PCV Hoses as well as the Forge hoses for the suction jet crap under the inlet, also changed, the suction jet, pcv valve and 2 brittle plastic pipes that go with the pcv system ( one that leads to the pcv hose other to the oil filter housing ) :

Few of the hoses etc fitted :





Next up downpipe needed sorting, didn't want to risk running the relentless again due to it cracking last time so went for a Pipeworx 3" Downpipe and decat , am very very happy with the quality of it and looks to be made out of some proper steel rather than stuff with the thickness of a crisp packet, welds also look decent quality [smiley=thumbsup.gif] will be gtting fitted along with the clutch as have no interest of fitting it again , been there and done that thank you :lol: so fitted on the 18th by 4rings..

Downpipe and Decat section :



for comparison :lol:


Always wanted some 4 Pots for the TT as had a set on my old Clio and they were brilliant so when a set of LCR Brembos popped up on here with disc, pads and lines i snapped them up :p , i was assured by the seller they were in perfect working order but paint needed sorting ... they arrived and i decided to send them off to get refurbished, the report came back as perfect working condition just needed a repaint so decided to paint them in Post box Red :lol: Tbh the repaint took a lot longer then expected and have only just got them back so not actually got them fitted but they do look very nice now, lets hope they perform just as well :p

Before :





After:







Am going to the Ring in September so decided it was time to sort out the Haldex controller so contacted Whenab on here and got a really good deal on a brand new HPA Touch Motion controller with performance suite , only arrived this week so will be fitting it shortly and report back but no doubt it will be good :p

HPA Touch motion:



As i mentioned at the beginning i was never to keen on the black wheels which was a shame as they had just been refurbed, i decided to get my Silver wheel that were on the silver TT refurbished by Lepsons as have been impressed with there work in the past... as i hoped they came out stunning and car now looks a lot better on its Silver wheels :p also fitted new Goodyear F1's all round..

Refurbished wheels:







On the car:




Have done other bits but haven't taken pics of stuff as was likely covered in mess and didn't want to touch the camera but include fitting the Koni Coilovers , Forge Tie bars, Front wishbones with cookbots/ Powerflex bushes, R32 front and rear ARB , fitted Blueflame catback exh , new front ball joints, new drop links, haldex oil/filter change, oil change, micro switch and no doubt a few other bits i have forgotten but will no doubt update as i remember :lol:

Have a few other bits and bobs to do like order a new set of Siemens Deka 630cc injectors for when its mapped as according to the Liquid TT its already running 255bhp premap so will no doubt run out of puff once waks gets his hand on it if i were to keep std injectors, order a few more engine hoses then give the paint a damn good detailing :p

Liquid Reading :


Our great British summer, 2 mins previous to this sun was out and i just finished the drop link change: :roll:


Thats it for now :lol:

Looking really good!

Wheels and callipers look impressive - might consider both BCS/Lepsons

Cheers mate...

Can highly recommend lepsons for the wheel refurbish as the quality of work/ finish is stunning and time scales are bang on. ( I dropped them off on a Saturday and we're ready for collection on Wednesday :p )

Brake Caliper Specialist on the other hand were so so... quality of work/ finish is excellent BUT there time scales are terrible... was originally told 15 days turnaround but this ended up being more like 30days turnaround with me having to do some chasing up in the end but have now got them back at last. I should of paid more attention to the Google reviews as most say the same thing.. good quality but shit time scales :roll:

Plenty of head room which these injectors.
Just wanted to say that I got the same 630s from the same company and noticed that the lower seals did not fit as tight in the injector cups as the seals on my 550cc bosch. For the small price of the seals I replaced for good measure.

Interesting! Did you fit the standard Bam lower injector o-rings ? also wak supplies some sort of spacer to fit them .. same with yours ?
