      you may want to add to the list of common probs the door open/closed switches that malfunction.
      and if you ever over torque the lug nuts just a little-- they will be hell to loosen on the side of the road.

      Maybe I overlooked it in previous posts, but going way back to the beginning, isn't there a TT Quattro Sport. I've seen it on Top Gear episodes. Its the 1.8 turbo with stock 240hp, its got carbon fiber top and recaro seats ect. Anyone know anything about this?

      It was only available in Europe as a limited edition at the end of the MkI production. It is not in the FAQ because it doesn't mean anything for the USA aside from the fact that you can buy the rear seat delete for it. It was the only 1.8T TT with the S-line front bumper cover, however.

      Audi TT FAQ

      Helpful Acronyms:
      VAG - Volkswagen/Audi Group

      It actually means Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft (AG). Basically like corporation (Co) or incorporated (INC).

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aktiengesellschaft

      Was just searching a question I had about a TT and that was the first thing I read!

      350hp is the engine limit, whereas the Haldex is good for 550+hp


      How do you know this for a fact?

      The engine is because of rods, and 550hp is what I heard way back when; I have not heard otherwise since. You could contact Haldex directly and ask but like most other car parts its subjective to driving style, power delivery, etc. If you hear a specific, OFFICIAL number I'll definitely amend the FAQ

      Yes, if you want to completely remove the headlights, you also have to remove the bumper, though it is only screws/bolts along the edge, and doesn't take very long

      ya bumper needs to come off. not difficult though should take u 20min if u got two jack stands a jack and you have done it once or twice. do your self a favor and take both front wheels off to make it easier.

      1)front wheels off
      2)inner fender lining (just get the front of the lining free so u can pull it back and rest it behind the front suspension.
      3)2 10mm nuts on the inside behind the inner lining
      4)2 screws on the bottom
      5)6 hex screws on the top (need to remove the cover on top to get to them)
      6)remove bumper straight out and ur done to work on the lights

      The TTq, like the Volkswagen R32, uses an AWD system manufactured by a Swedish company called Haldex, rather than the traditional TorSen (torque-sensing) quattro system used in other Audi models. The Haldex is basically a control unit that uses a prop shaft off the rear of the transverse gearbox (02M, DSG) to control how much power the rear differential uses. Both cars are effectively FWD until sensors throughout determine that power needs to be sent to the rear, which, in stock form, happens with hard acceleration or loss of traction. The Haldex system on average distributes about 80% of the power to the front wheels and 20% to the rear wheels. In normal driving and highway cruising, the TT quattro is essentially a FWD car; when handling becomes an issue, the Haldex system wil send power to the rear wheels, but it will never go beyond a 50/50 split. TorSen, on the other hand, can send almost all its power to the rear wheels, depending on modifications.

      If you want a more constant 50/50 power distribution, you can purchase a Haldex Performance controller... they sell for $900 new or around $600 used. This part will give you a more aggressive power distribution, and will allow more power to go to the rear wheels in any conditions, not just after front tire slippage. There are two replacement parts for the Haldex system, in the form of either a Blue or Orange controller; with the Blue controller, more power is sent to the rear wheels earlier, but the controller unlocks once the gas is released, or if the clutch or brake pedals are pressed. The more expensive ($1000+) Orange controller, however, stays locked.

      If you could incorporate all of the different engine codes, what years they were offered and what are the differences between them that would be cool. Probably just put it in with the different submodels. A guy just posted this and it was a really good question, that I actually was wrong about the answer and it was also very interesting. I had no idea that 180's were VVT.

      2003~2006

      AWP - 180hp, wideband o2, k03s, 9.5:1 comp, VVT
      BEA - 225hp, wideband o2, k04-02x, 9:1 comp, VVT

      2004-2006
      BHE - 250hp, 3.2 vr6

      I used ~ because there is no hard line dividing the engine codes, and VVT was ONLY for emissions
