Ive been on here a while now, owned the TT just over a year and got to know a fair few people. Ive have had a few people ask if i had a progress thread to which i had to reply not really :roll: . So decide to do one as my last 1 on my cliosport was quite successful. Bit about me, i was 20 (now 21) when i got the TT having owned a a clio 1.2 from passing at 17 which was turned into a cliosport and i even put a 2.0l engine which didnt go down to well. So i cut my losses and got rid for the TT i have today.

This is how i got her. Had a few mods already, like 'miltek' exhuaust, autobahn88 tip, Rs6 Alloys, Rear headlight tints, Front headlight tints, black vinyl wrapped roof/fuel cap, Lcr splitter, turbo badge instead of audi rings, red calipers, V6 spoiler, V6 rear valance, 3 bar grille.







First thing to do was put my reg on to hide the fact its over 10 year old haha.





Next up was some cheap halfrauds special number plate LEDS, worked a treat and have been spot on ever since.



Im only young and a i like blue so fitted some 8k xenons which wont be to everyones taste but it makes me stand out :lol:



Then came some interior mods, i put my sub in the boot that was in my clio. Also wrapped a few interior parts in 3M carbon fibre.







Quick picture of my poor little clioand the TT, Both fantastic cars. Clio got stripped and sold in parts in the end.



Next up was to tidy up the bodywork so out came the bucket and wax. Gave her a good wash, clay, polish and wax.



Next was to look at the engine bay, so added a bling kit, polished a couple of parts, painted a few other parts and this was the result.



Became a TTOC member and decided to share it with the world.



I then came up with a CRAZY idea of flocking the engine bay to be 'different'. This resulted in a very OTT engine bay which i know alot wont like but hey ho, its my car :lol:

I also added a neauspeed induction kit and forge DV from awsome.



Next up was the wheels, im not a fan of big spokes so saw some genuine BBS ch's in the for sale section. So i travelled 3 hours down to bristol to meet markypoo and came home with my mate as a passenger ( big lad) squashed in the car with 4 big 19" Ch's :p He wasnt impressed with the space but was definatly worth it in the end.



Trax soon approached fast so got myself on a mates stand and showed her off.





Next up was a little mod which i saw on here which i instantly fell in love with, albeit very cheap/minor mod. Quattro stinker on the wing mirrors.



I kept looking at the front and something just wasnt right, i wasnt happy with the shape so i decieded to spalsh out for a v6 front bumper, Travelled another 2 hours to pick it up from newcastle and then dropped it straight into the bodyshop. I thought id be different again and smooth the front number plate out so got that done at the same time.

Whilst in the body shop i sprayed the front grille myself with plasti-kote super gloss to give it a nice shiny look.



Bumper came out the bodyshop and straight onto the car, with out the bottom grilles which i hadnt sourced yet.



3 bar grille refitted





Next i needed something so the rozzers didnt pull me for no number plate, i saw another forum member cars who wanted to be james bond and decided i did aswell, so i purchased a remote control flip up number plate ( picture is with the old number plate until i purchased a american sized plate)







Next up was the replace the WORST centre section to a exhaust ive ever seen, a miltek back box but clearly not a miltek middle section. So got onto awsome gti and got a miltek centre section off them. ( if you like nice exhausts you may want to look away now)





I then looked for weeks upon weeks for a downpipe that was affordable and a decient price, i found the XS power 1 for very cheap over in america which, if you dont know, have had some very bad reviewsbut i emialed them and they said they had sorted these problems out now. With no1 wanting to be a guinea pig i decided to take a the pludge and get one. It went on perfectly and i havent had a problem since and was over half the price other companys charge. I also change the dogbone mount as advised on here.





Next up came a Liquid gauge in the for sale section off graham, love_iTT ( great guy).



I then bought some of the cheap Angel eye leds from bong kong and thought whilst i was splitting the headlights i would spray my indicator lenses so the orange wasnt in your face no more.

this was all taken place just before ulitmate dubs so took my flip up number plate off and cable tied a plate to the grille just to get down there.



Ultimate dubs was great, had a great time and met some great people.







Another quick snap on my neighbours drive that i like to show where its at at the moment



A few backs i found a coolant leaking somewhere so had a look about and found the culprit. So changed that over.





After buying a the downpipe i had made the decision that i was going for the full works and get a stage 2 and try to get as close to 300 bhp as i could. This ment upgrading the smaller autobahn88 tip to a 3" SFS tip and start looking for an intercooler which will be purchased next week in the group buy.



Today i replaced the coolant bottle for a brand new one, quick easy 10 minute job but quite effective and i can now read my coolant level.





So that brings me pretty much up-to-date now, as said abit further up, in the next couple of weeks i shall get the intercooler, and then a stage 2 remap in about a month (hopfully when awsome gti have a remap sale on). Im also looking at getting some 20 mm spacers on the back and 15 mm spacers on the front. The engine bay at the moment is al back together at the moment but i want to do a few changes to it still as im not happy with the big blue engine cover, its going to be toned down quite abit. Also have the porsche oil and coolant caps to come when they come in from the group buy.

I can now keep tabs on what i get up to and shall update this when ever i mess about with something. :p

Great write up and good to see someone with a bit of passion for their car.

My head keeps shaking from side to side whenever I see your flocking think it's just an inbuilt reaction.

Enjoy mate enjoy, good work. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

Love your car, looks spot on to me. Nice way to keep together all the mods you have done. We should have a build thread sub category where everyone can post threads like these. I can imagine after a few more mods, I'll start loosing track of what I have and haven't done and I haven't even done that much to mine!

A little update, Car failed on mot on n/s arb link and n/s bottom arm (both an advisery from last years MOT :eek: ) and front 2 tyres ( although 1 is perfectly legal :roll: ) so front RS6 alloys came out and were fitted till i get some new tyres. So got myself a new arb link and bottom arm with ball joint and my mate fitted them so passed MOT now. Id say it was easy to replace only i didnt do it, i just watched so was very easy for me :lol:

On 1 tyre i had a slow leak and needed blowing up every couple of days so going not going to put the BBS back on till i have a new tyre.

Still waiting on 3 or 4 new things to be fitted which should be here in next couple of weeks. Also looking at investing into some R32 ARBs and poly bushes.











I really wish i could afford a decent camera, They do look better on a smaller iphone screen though.

i think ive found a few on google, before i go and buy do you think it'd be an easier enough job to modify it so it wasn't so square? i want to get a pressed 320mm plate from europlates and fit that. (sorry for the thread hijack lol)

Added some red silicone hoses into the engine bay today



Then having done the n249 bypass already, I decided to delete it all and take it all out. Just left the sensor in for now till I order a resistor. Notice that big slug of a thing in the first picture soon disappear.



The bay is nowhere near clean but as I've said it's abit of a work in progress atm.

Also gave her a quick wash as she was covered in dust.

Good effort.

I was never really into denim blue, but when you see Tonksy's car in the flesh, it changed my mind.

Some good quality mods being fitted.

If your fitting the v3 manifold, then you may as well save your cash up for a decent turbo. In my opinion thre is no point changing the manifold , then put your 80k turbo back on. You may as well get it rebuilt or fit a hybrid.

Having spoken with FLASH , he stated that the poly bushes / new ARB make the car handle very well. He was impressed with those mods.

When you go for stage 2 remap, make sure you get a full boost leak check beforehand.

What bhp is the liquid gauge showing now? any comparisons for each mod?

GG

* sack off the flock. :lol:

I had fitted a resister but it throws a fault up every now and again so refitted the N249 valve but relocated it out the way so now fault free!!!
