Show Winning Magazine Featured TT

I bought this car to use as a donor to switch parts from it, to my ABT Motorsport Audi TT Wide Body Limited Edition Type 2 car. My plan was to strip it of all the fancy upgrade parts over the winter to build a monster of a car. However my plans have subsequently changed and as a result I am probably going to sell both TTs.

So a bit of info about the car… it’s a 1.8T with 106k, lots of history (A4 folder about two inches thick of receipts).

Full cam belt kit replaced including tensioner.

Haldex serviced.

Sump dropped and cleaned and oil pickup pipe replaced – usual essential maintenance jobs done to ensure a healthy car.

Many, many new parts including

• steering rack

• alternator

• starter

• brake cylinder

• drive shafts etc etc.

Just about every nut and bolt replaced with new ones so everything is nice and clean with no corrosion.

New wheel well liners and metal work all stripped and repainted so it is like new. Whole underneath of the car is spotless.

I also have A4 booklet that runs to 173 pages which details the transformation of the car from when it was first purchased to how it stands now.

It’s had a full professional respray in Mercedes Palladium Silver by Car Charm. It’s a lovely colour and provides a mirror like reflection when polished in the sunlight. It’s every bit as good as a factory finish and is pretty much unmarked – I’m not aware of any stone chips on it. Obviously there are no dents or dings or rust anywhere on the car.

As far as the price goes, I’d like £8.5K complete as you see it or £7.5K with the cage and race seats removed and the standard leather seats re-fitted. Likewise I can offer a couple of brake options – The Porsche Cayenne six pots as currently fitted or Brembo GT Junior 4 pots. I'm pretty flexible and in no rush at all to sell so we can spec it to your budget if you want.

Car has been to a couple of shows and won trophies at all shows it’s been to including best Modified TT at EvenTT last year.

It was a feature car in Performance Audi Magazine in Sept of this year and I have a copy of the magazine included with the car.

I’ll put the spec list below including some pictures, but if you have any questions or want to view you can PM me and I can provide my phone number to discuss further.

Car is located in North of Scotland – Grantown-On-Spey (30 miles South East of Inverness). I can deliver the car for the cost of fuel one way.

  • Rs4 is cool. I drove one of the 2.7 ones. The day after I went for a drive, bought a stage 3 BT S4 and gave the little TT to my little wife.

  • Cars
  • How did you fit the mk3 vents?

  • I'll give you a grand for the seats and cage Mark? Ta

  • Love that

  • Andy Whaley

  • Our list is longer

  • Matt Newhouse the stuff dreams are made of

  • How have I not seen this TT before. That engine bay is flawless

  • Yeah makes me sad I don't have one anymore

  • The previous owner did it - bought a second dash top then cut the holes bigger from 60 to 70mm...

  • Sorry, would love to sell to you for that but I need more than that back...

  • Sorry I read you would sell the car for 7500 without the seats or cage, I only really want the cage would you take £600 for that

  • The standard cages go for that sort of money. Having the twin X braces welded in to it then the powder coating doubled the cost - it's a one off so I wouldn't unfortunately take that. I've already been offer a grand for the cage but I would prefer to give a potential buyer the option of the whole car first...

  • Your correct in your observation that I would sell the car without the cage and seats and a standard interior refitted for £7500 though. Once it's sold I could do a better deal on the cage and \ or setas.

  • Would you give me first shout please

  • Jamie Simms Sure if it sells without those parts I'll let you know.

  • Thanks mate your a good man

  • Come back to the titties

  • Mk3 one day

  • Watched the progress on this right from the start. Got to be one of the best TT builds around

  • You could try the Euro market mate. Price looks very good. If you have 10 minutes free put it up on AutoScout24

  • Sweet!

  • Thanks for the heads up.

  • What bhp is it ?

  • It's still on it's original map. and it runs beautifully on this. It has all the mods in place for stage 2 though so you could easily achieve 270 - 280 or so with a remap if wanted.

  • Price dropped by £250 to £8250

  • i'm still £8250 short.. haha

  • Price now £8000

  • Price now £7250

  • David Pittock

  • Do I need this one mate

  • Got your name all over it Jon. You not bored of that mini yet? Could do you a good deal on it ;-)
