    TT RS - Jimojameso's build thread

    Hello all,


    Now i have had my RS a few months thought i would start a build thread now i have got a few bits done. I'll start off with a bit of history. My last quick car was 1995 Toyota Supra which i had for about 5 years. I got this up to 461bhp and was fantastic ongoing project car. It wasn't very practical day to day and was ridiculous on fuel meaning i was running two cars at the time.






    When i got on the property ladder I decided i would rather have just one car that was a good all rounder so i sold my supra and mk5 golf gti that i used day to day and bought the 2010 Audi S3 Sportback Black Edition S-tronic. This was a great car. It was a very good all rounder and after only a couple of months i was straight up to stage 2+ running 362bhp.











    Although fairly quick i still missed the punch of the supra and although the S3 handled well it didn't have much front end. I also wanted a more sporty car so the natural progression from the S3 was to the TT RS. After looking at a couple of ropey examples i picked up this Sepang blue example from a nearby Audi dealer. Very pleased with the car except for the tiny little 18s that it came with but the rest of the spec of the car was great, and i'd knew i would change those soon enough anyway.






    I managed to pick up some brand new team dynamics 1.3s for a very good price which instantly transformed the look of the car and made it sit much better. I bolted my Recaro's which i had in my S3 straight into the TT and got the coding done while at MRC. I quickly picked up another rear bench and some door cards so i could get the interior matching. I'm really pleased with how it looks although i know the red will not be too everyones taste but i love it. :D I have kept the original seats for when i sell the car so can all be put back to original.






    After a lot of reading and discussion i decided to get MRC to do the stage 1 remap and i was very happy with the results. The car pulls so much better now and the smile on my face when i first hit the loud pedal after getting it done was priceless. It was the first time i have smiled like that since having the supra. Its a real weapon now and i'm really pleased with the results. I will go stage 2 eventually but for the time being i'm very happy.






    Other bits i have done is pick up one of the armrests off grasmere. Superb quality. Thanks very much. I also fitted my R8 caps under the bonnet which i had on the S3. Thinking about wrapping the front lip and mirrors in gloss black next. Hope you like the pictures.


    Cheers


    James :D

    Lovely - Recaros look spot on - so are TD's - set of H& R's would complete the stance...
