Hello fellow TT fanatics,my name is Thomas and would like to introduce myself and my TT.It is a 00' model,and I just rescued her from a life of neglect and abuse,she is now a cherished member of our automotive family.
I have always liked TT's and when I saw them in person I REALLY liked them,so it has been a 2 year mission to find one that suits my tastes.......it had to have black leather and the color had to be "James Bond silver"(official Audi color code,lol)
It came into my posession with blacked out Avus rims,and the spoiler,at first I was going to get some Oettingers,but the car gets a lot of compliments and I might just leave it like that for awhile.
I am a FK suspension distributor,so I dropped it with FK coil over and the ride/handlling is awesome.I really love my little TT and I smile every time I drive her..........she is a "keeper"! [tt]

Thnaks for the warm welcome,and yes,the blacked out rims/silver has grown on me.......And 180 FWD love is what I wanted,that Haldex thingy won't be happy at 300+ hp,and would be expensive if it breaks.One thing I like is the 00' looks just like the 05 except for grill and lower front valence.
Ncttrnl,I like that lower valence on your car,who makes that?

Thanks... thats the stock front from a 3.2.

All you need are the new grills, a couple of side supports, and the new front bumper all available from the parts dept.

I can post up the part number list tomorrow.

Welcome and enjoy one of the coolest designs to come out in years.

Hello you guys,BTW I live in Hawaii(Oahu) and to be honest I have never seen snow here before,plenty of rain,yes.I got to drive a 225TT for a couple of days,and loved it.I plan on making substantial power increases with this motor,and take here to the dragstrip,so the FWD has me less worried about breakage at high hp levels!That would be $$$.

I saw you were in Hawaii, but with global warming and climate change you may soon be covered in ice[;)]

Have fun
