    Talking Bye, bye...

    The S3 is going... soon to be replaced with...

    Pic's from the dealer so not great:













    Audi TT-RS coupe
    Suzuka Grey
    Black Leather
    DVD Nav
    Audi Music Interface
    Bose
    Phone Prep
    Interior light pack
    High Beam Assist
    Auto dimming and folding mirrors
    Cruise Control
    Hill Hold
    Rear Parking sensors
    Tyre pressure monitor
    19" Titanium alloys
    Black Optics

    It was fun, no, sometimes it was hilarious, and I'm betting the RS3 gets announced and open for orders next week... typical, but happy to have my fifth cylinder :D

    The S3 is for sale if someone happens to be looking for a very nice example... but the ARBs, Springs and Spacers are coming with me

    Thanks.
    The buckets come with chavvy TT stitching everywhere (it's how they justify a 2k price for them) and that just ain't my bag.

    Well, I reckon, with normal driving it's going to be less thirsty than the S3... a mate who has one surprised me by averaging over 30mpg...
    But yeah, quick as an R8 in stock trim.....

    Haha, well, no, when Jonny gets going he goes to town and does a very thorough job transforming the car, no way I'll keep up. I'll be happy with a few tweaks to the handling, sound and power

    Yep I'm aware. From what I have heard there are no metal changes, so likely just bumpers and lights. Rumour is LED style rear lights, which should in theory be plug and play just like the rear lights on the pre and post S3/A3.
    I've also heard lower spec TT's are getting more 'sporty' bumper.
    I'm not worried about it.

    Very nice Jamie, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    I was in my local dealer the other day and they've got one exactly the same in their showroom. I must admit, I generally just glance over the cars in the showroom and go at look at any I fancy in my own time but this TT I had to go and look at straight away. Felt kind of drawn to it as it looked so good.

    Well done mate, I'll be interested to see how far you go modding wise.

    Thanks fella - look forward to another sparring session at ADI
    Modding wise not going to silly. Jonny is going to town on his and it will be a very special toy, but I think I'm going to only do the ARB's and springs (the S3 set up I have fits and is the same apparently), then exhaust and remap - should be enough. Jonny has already started to work out what needs to be done, and the standard intake appears to be a good design, so may leave that... Fuel pump appears to be same as the R8 v10 so I hear, so that should be good for up to 550bhp LOL
    Don't think I'll be going that extreme... only question mark is on the clutch
