    FINALLY - Back in a TT!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey everybody! More than 10 years ago I traded in my MK1 TT for an A3. Right away I missed my TT. Then I got a 2008 R32, still missed my TT. Two GTI's later and I'm FINALLY in a 2018 TTS, White, Red interior and Black Optics!

    The delivery was horrible. When I showed up I noticed right way that the 20" wheels on the driver's side were missing the center caps. I was infuriated. They did not care at all. They said 'sorry' in quite a disingenuous way and told me it was the other dealer's fault. Then they told me (in a way where I was supposed to be grateful) that they called the other dealer and they'd be here 'sometime next week'. I asked what most customers do when they pick up a $60k car that is missing parts and they said 'they usually get pretty angry' and that was it. They didn't offer me a t-shirt, a hat, a free tank of gas, NOTHING.

    After the paperwork was done the sales guy started showing me how to unlock the doors. I chuckled and told him that I've had several cars (VW and Audi) that had this locking system and I was more interested in the virtual cockpit. Right then he pretty much gave up on showing me anything and quickly ended our conversation and said goodbye. I was so furious on my way out of the lot I turned around, parked and went in to see the sales manager. HE DID NOT CARE EITHER! I left even more angry. 10 minutes later my cell rings and it's the sales manager and he starts telling me how important he is and how he over-nighted me some center caps! I said 'ok and then....' he said that I was welcome to come in anytime after Wednesday and get them! I sarcastically thanked him and hung up.

    First thing this morning I called Audi customer service and told them everything (in even more detail). They called the dealer and got me a free detail. Yay.

    So, 24 hours later I'm stoked to be back in a TT(S) *AND* I got a car seat in it!!!! As most of you know, it's almost impossible to stay under 4,000 rpms for the first 1,000 miles :)

    Congrats! I've driven every car I've had the last 10 years like I stole it off the lot and have never had any issues. It's a crime to drive these cars that slow!

    It kinda makes you wonder what the "dealer prep" charge is for. My wife's recent GLA delivery was similarly pretty much non-existent with my having to find the owner's manual, install mats, setup Bluetooth, etc. Just because they're "premium" dealerships obviously doesn't mean you get premium delivery.

    Hopefully their service/detailing side of the business is much better.

    But anyway, you have a sweet TTS and likely not have to visit them more than once a year. Enjoy!!

    Had they been even a little more genuine and offered me anything... a t-shirt, a pen, a coffee mug, I would have been fine with it. It was that they didn't care and when they decided to overnight they acted like they were doing me a favor. That's what was really disappointing.

    The car seats fit perfect. When I had my last GTI the kids never seemed to ride in my car. It had 2 seats in it ready to go 90% of the time but the kids are just now getting old enough where my wife and I need to take them separate places. It is not super comfortable for them, it's not something you'd do daily or even less than that. It's great though for trips to the in-laws, ice cream or just a fun drive. The kids are so much more into the car than I thought they would be! (attempting to post more links with the IMG - still not working I guess :(

    This pic (which I clearly now have the ability to post!) is right from the MK3 TT owners manual.
