      Santa came early this year! This spring when I took the Passat buyback I was looking at an Audi TTRS by the time the buyback took place the cars I was looking at were no longer available. All of the other ones at that time were overpriced for the mileage on them. Found a 2012 TTRS black, which was my preferred color with 24,000km. One owner never winters driven, garage stored beauty. Car is mint no dent, scratches, or chip. The only drawback is the dealer in Moncton, NB. Car was listed as the base model but turns out it has exhaust/tech packages. So stoked can't wait to pick it up on Dec. 27th. The MK3 GTI will be going up for sale this spring.





      Mods on the car:
      • 034 Motorsport Rear Sway Bar
      • 034 Adjustable End Links
      • 42 Draft Design Shifter Bushings
      • Phenix Engineering Shifter Bracket Bushing
      • United Motorsport Stage 1 Tune
      • Girodisc fully floating front discs
      • Girodisc Street & Strip brake pads for the front
      • 034 Motorsport carbon intake
      • Motul 600 Brake Fluid
      • Stainless Steel Brake Lines
      • Podi - Boost, Oil Pressure, Oil Temp. Gauge
      • Outdoor Car Cover -


      Still to install:
      • CTS Down Pipe

      That would be great, I usually attend Berlin Klassik at the end of the summer. You ever come out to Eurokracy? What mods have you got on yours?

      I attended Berlin klassik 2 years ago, and eurokracy 3 years ago. I’ve got UM stage 1, KW clubsport coil overs, 034 intake, 034 rear sway, OZ superturismo LM, catless midpipes, center mufflers cut out, sport exhaust zip tie mod, 42DD shifter bushings (must have for 50$) and HPA dog bone mount. I might be missing some things lol.

      Some nice mods, FYI the shifter bushing can be had here for $17.00 from Phenix Engineering, got them for my 1998 GTI and the 1991 Corrado.

      Those are the bracket bushings, I didn’t touch those. The actual shifter linkage bushings are where all the slop is!

      So far just shifter bushings, 42DD test pipes, and the 034 Motorsport carbon intake. Looking to do a tune in the spring too.

      Picked up the car today first impression is the sales guy was right the car is mint. Second this will get you some traffic tickets if you don't keep an eye on the speedo. An additional bonus again is the car came with Audi car cover, Weather Tech and TT floor mats. Up early tomorrow morning and 10 1/2hrs ride home looking forward to it To bad had to get it dirty they did a great job at detailing it

      Man this car is an absolute blast to drive.

      Thanks for the info.

      Made it home safe, trip was a little tricky this morning, light snow and New Brunswick HWY 2 seem to have a higher centre crest then QC/ON. With a car that feeds back the road it really felt weird at first and took a bit of getting use to. Once out of NB still had wind blown snow till I reach Quebec City was clear sailing after that. Even with only all season the car did well, was expecting a harsher ride but was surprisingly please with the ride quality.

      After 1,100 kms, bath time!

      Got a quote today for Opticoat Pro and Opticoat Pro Plus man this stuff is not cheap, but it does include clay bar, paint correction and then the ceramic coating, 2 year warranty just because the car is older then 5 years. Was also quoted a Quartz finish from another detailer which is good for 12-18 months for 1/4 of the price.

      Thanks for the comments guys, After some research I've decided to go with the Opticoat Pro ceramic coating, meeting up with the detailer tomorrow and have the booked for next Tuesday.

      Was at the detailer's today he wanted to see the condition of the clear coat to see if only a single stage polish would correct the swirls, he was impressed with the clear coat condition for a 5 year old car. Black Panther Pearl has a purple hue in sunlight (cool effect IMO), I know it not a magical cure all product but I've had black car in the past, take a lot of effort to keep it clean and this will certainly help keep it look freshly waxes.

      +1 for opti-coat pro, I had it done this past summer on my a3, for the main reason that it is becoming my mainly "winter" car it was around $850 but it is very nice! even the touch less gas station car-washes leave it looking above average, the crud does not stick and rinses off with ease! in my head it seems that if it helps keep the car cleaner, and sealed the paint, it should help stop corrosion or at least slow it. The crap they put on the roads here is horrible so if the $850 investment slows or stops corrosion, it will be money ahead in the end.
