Further to reading about peoples enquiries about alloy dead pedals to match those in the GTI, i popped into the local dealers today and had a gander at the 2 TT's they've got in as demo's.
Neither the manual nor DSG had an alloy dead pedal - merely plastic. So it seems that the TT microsite showing one must have been a pre-production / prototype.
The search continues.
Oh, and with respect to my post last night on ETKA, i'd like to apologise to one and all - i wasn't sure about the site's policy / feelings on matters like that so please don't think i'm a toerag on the quiet!
Edited to say - just looked at the S-Line pack on the new TT and the dead pedal is back! Have to wait till one hits the showroom i guess!
