      Mark 2 TT USA Model Summary

      2008
      2L - 4 cylinder coupe. 200 HP from 5100 to 6000 rpm and 207 ft-lb from 1800-5000 rpm. FWD only with an S-tronic dual clutch automatic transmission. 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds. ¼ mile in 14.8 seconds, 225/50/17 tires standard, 23/31mpg, dual tail pipes on left, $34.8K base price.

      3.2L - 6 cylinder coupe and roadster. 250 HP at 6100 rpm and 236 ft-lb from 2500 to 3000 rpm. Quattro only with a 6 speed manual tranny standard and S-tronic optional.

S-line option includes interior and exterior trim plus 19” rims. For roadsters - trunk load-through, baseball seats, power top.

      No Mk 2 came with a compact spare or jack. You were provided with an air pump and “goo”.

      2009 changes

      2L - Quattro optional, Quattro coupe 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, ¼ mile in 14.7 seconds coupe and 15 seconds roadster. Quattro coupe and roadster mpg 21/29, Quattro roadster 0-60 in 6.2 seconds, roadster FWD mpg increases to 22/30

      Option changes - black baseball seats for coupes

      TTS introduced - 2L engine, 265 HP at 6000 rpm, 258 ft-lb at 2500 to 5000 rpm, more pronounced turbo lag than the base TT 2L engine, lower compression ratio of 9.8:1, DSG with Quattro, mag ride, 245/40/18 tires standard, xenon headlights with LED running lights, power seats, suspension lowered 10mm compared to base TT, 0-60 of 4.9 seconds for the coupe and 5.1 for the roadster, ¼ mile of 13.5 seconds coupe and 13.7 seconds roadster, mpg of 21/29 for coupe and roadster, 2 tone nappa leather seats, split quad tailpipes, same brakes as the 3.2L with painted calipers.

      New options - auto-dimming mirror, rain sensor wipers.

      2011 changes

      2L - Significantly improved engine that Audi specs at 211 HP from 4300 to 6000 rpm and 258 ft-lb between 1600 to 4200 rpm (APR test data show 220 HP and 275 ft-lb over a significant portion of that range http://www.goapr.com/products/ecu_up...ivl_trans.html), 0-60 in 5.3 seconds for the coupe and 5.6 seconds for the roadster, ¼ mile in 14.1 seconds for the coupe and 14.3 seconds for the roadster, fascia re-designed, xenon headlights standard, power seats standard, LED running lights standard, split dual tail pipes, rain sensor wipers standard, auto-dimming mirror standard, mpg 22/31. Note that the acceleration performance numbers are identical to the departed 3.2L model but with better handling since this model is about 150 pounds lighter on the nose than the 3.2. Of the base TT models, the 2011+ are the best bang for the buck costing $6K less than the 3.2 but with more standard features and much better MPG.

      TTS - fascia re-designed, 19” rims standard, sport button modifies steering boost and exhaust sound, auto-dimming mirror standard, rain sensor wipers standard.

      2012 changes

      TTRS introduced - The ultimate Mk 2 TT experience. According to Car and Driver Lightning Lap (http://www.caranddriver.com/features...o-2013-page-10) the TTRS is comparable on a track to the V8 R8, and faster that the Cayman S, Carrera S, and 911 Turbo. In addition to its speed, it is still tame enough to use as a daily driver. With a base price of only $56,850 , it is one of the best bang-for-the-buck sports cars ever.

      2.5L 5 cylinder engine mated to a manual 6 speed tranny, 360 HP from 5500 to 6700 rpm and 343 Ft-Lb of torque from 1650 to 5400 rpm giving 0-60 in 4.1 seconds. Mag ride standard, sport mode that changes throttle response and exhaust, unique front fascia and body trim, 19” rims, painted calipers, xenon headlights and LED running lights, fixed spoiler, driver information system with lap timer, mpg 18/25. The larger front brakes than the TTS have been trouble-prone for some owners.

      TTRS options - retractable spoiler, heated seats, sport exhaust., adaptive headlights

      2013 changes

      2L - Black baseball option no longer offered on coupe, S-line competition package option added which includes a competition suspension that lowers the car 10mm,

      TTS - black and brown baseball seats offered on coupes and roadsters

      TTRS - no significant changes

      Options: Voice control system added

      2014 changes

      TTRS - dropped

      2015 changes

      The 2015 TT and TTS were actually produced in late 2013 and delivered to dealers early 2014 and were equipped with special packages. This was a stop-gap measure by Audi USA to avoid a “dead year” between the Mk 2 and Mk 3 model years in the US similar to the missing 2007 MY between the Mk 1 and Mk 2.

      2L - new optional S-line Plus carbon package that includes a leather covered roll bar on the roadster, heated seats standard, .

      TTS - new optional Competition package (cosmetic except for fixed spoiler) limited to 500 and comes with a numbered badge.

      Mk 1 Concert - 80W
      Mk 1 optional Bose - 175W
      Mk 2 Concert - 140W
      Mk 2 optional Bose - 255W
      Mk 3 Concert - 155W
      Mk 3 optional Bang & Olufsen - 680W

      Notes: Perceived sound volume depends on many factors besides wattage and includes crossover network perfromance and speaker efficiency.

      To my ear, the Mk 2 Concert had noticeably better music fidelity as compared to the Mk 1 Bose but the maximum volume was slightly lower.

      All 2.0 engines produced for 2008 MY TTs have a timing belt. During the 2009 MY it was switched to a chain on the base TT. All TTS models have a belt. If you have an engine code of BPY (base TT) or CDMA (TTS), you have a belt. Also, belt engines have a plastic belt cover on the engine while chain covers are metal. While Audi USA does not give a time limit for the life of the belt, only a mileage limit of 110K miles, posts began to appear on various TT forums in late 2015 of timing belt failures in MY 2008 vehicles. The TTRS engine has a chain.

      The 2009-2012 base 2L engine with timing chains have had some rare failures and was the subject of litigation here https://www.timingchainlitigation.com/ . Talking to Audi service personnel, the issue is that the oiling port to the chain system can get clogged if oil is not to spec and/or changed to spec.

      In 2017 multiple posts began to appear on various TT forums regarding failure of Mk 2s with magnetic shocks and seems to be a chronic problem on TTs so equipped. It appears that the shocks fail due to age rather than mileage. Cost for replacement is about $600 per shock if you shop around for OEM parts on line. Installation at an indy shop is about $150 a shock, so about $3K parts and labor for all four. Many are replacing them with standard shocks which causes a code error that can be fixed via the next post.

      Thanks to KwstasTT225 for the following:

      hello my friends ,i have a mk2 tt 3.2 2007 model.dsg, mag ride. my sunspension died a long time ago(now i hav 220.000km) and i dont have the buget to get a NEW set.didn want to go coilover with the delete kit.. i bought some Cheap monroe oem style shocks and i have a nice soft ride for an every day Car. so i was searchinfg the globe to see if i can delete the fault codes and de-code complitly the mr like it was never installed..no such thread,so i gathered as many clues i could and start with my vcds with simple order. STEP1: remove the fuse 9 from the fuse BOX drivers side. STEP 2: open vcds -CAN GATEWAY-INSTALATION LIST- un-click mag ride. STEP3:VCDS-INSTRUMENTS CLUSTER-CODING-change the value according to the bubble and equipment.Character 4(Value 64 = Magnetic Ride chassis).remove 64 from the coding!.. STEP 4:vcds headlight range control --change coding to 0000010 = Headlight range control automatic/dynamic + four-wheel drive + steel springs (PR number 8Q3 + 1X1 + 1BA/1BV)(0000009 for front Wheel Car).. STEP 5:vcds-ABS module.this is the one...no buble for help in coding.i had coding 0026177.(quattro+mag ride+dsg+v6 engine+340mm brakes).. test many possible codes.but THIS work for me:0017985.. no faults codes,no rewiring,no modules unpluging,no esp problems(not disangaging)..like never had mag ride. GOOD LUCK!!

      Tail light assemblies on the Mk 2 are failing at an above average rate. The usual cause of the failure is corrosion at the connector which gradually increases resistance in the connection to the point that the connector and tail light assembly melt together. The first indication of a problem is to inspect the operation of all of the individual lights. If your running light, turn signal, or brake light is dimmer on one side as compared to the other then you likely have a problem with the connector. Eventually you will get a light failure warning on the dash but at that point you will have to replace the entire assembly. To avoid the problem, check your tail lights every year. The process for visually inspecting the connector is easy as shown in this video https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...3ABB&FORM=VIRE

      No spare tire a real problem, particularly for anyone in the rural west where it is not unusual to be an hour away from a garage that could tow you and then you would have to wait for a replacement tire to be delivered from a major city.

      Run-flats are not a good solution for the west because they are typically only good for about 50 miles after losing pressure and few rural garages have the special equipment required to remove them from a rim, assuming they have a replacement tire which is a bad assumption. Run flats are also worthless if your tire is sliced or your rim is bent.

      There are 2 spare options that have been proven to work on the Mk II.

      The first is a compact spare. The spare from a B8 A4 works on the base TT and even the rear wheels of a TTRS. (So for the TTRS with a front flat you would have to move the rear tire to the front and then put the spare on the rear.)
      The Mk 3 TT compact spare also works.
      There is also a VW compact spare solution that uses a VW 18" compact rim, part number 1k0 601 027 b0 3c which VW dealers have readily in stock for about $165 and can be bought online for about $115. The tire for that rim is a Bridgestone T145/70R18 that Tire Rack sells for about $325 with tax and shipping.

      The second solution is an “almost full size” spare. For the base TT, buy a cheap 16x7 wheel and the cheapest 205/60/R16 tire for about $200 installed. The advantage of this solution is that you can run this tire forever at normal freeway speeds (I wouldn't exceed the speed limit however) whereas the compact spare is only rated for about 50 mph for several hundred miles. The disadvantage is that the almost full spare weighs more and is about 2.36" wider than the compact spare which uses up a little more trunk space. However the almost full size spare's rim provides a nice space for storing smaller items if you are packing your car for a trip.

      There is a European blow-up compressed compact spare that works. It was made for an older Mercedes SL. Unfortunately it is very expensive and used items are usually older than the manufacturer’s 6 years of shelf life. You also have the uncertainty that your air compressor has enough power to decompress the tire when needed. Also, it is a single use solution. Therefore it is not recommended.

      So where do you put the spare? Unfortunately the only solution is in the trunk and not underneath the trunk floor. You might think at first inspection that with some re-arranging a compact spare might fit under the trunk floor. In fact, there is a "how to" for installing the compact spare into the TT well on a UK site that requires some serious sawing. However, it is believed that the European model that was modified does not have the metal “hump” underneath the floor that North American models have. You might also think that the hump looks like it is designed to hold a compact spare, but even the smallest blow-up spare mentioned previously has a diameter too large to fit in that area. Cutting out the metal hump has body integrity issues.

      A common problem with roadster tops are top sensor errors. The effect can be as trivial as recycling the top to eliminate the alert, to a more rarer situation where the top fails to operate. Usually the problem is in the left or right flap motor that have an optical sensor that determines in the top is in the correct position and the motor grease diminishes the sensor's view. If you are DIY inclined, the sensor can be cleaned. The dealer will have problems diagnosing the problem because most top malfunction errors are not stored for later diagnosis. This thread is helpful.

      Scroll down this thread about the convertible flap motors to a post by Downeastter for a very useful Audi training document for doing any TT repairs
