      I say this belongs at least in this thread, it's a good read:
      Quote, originally posted by TREFTTY »
      Yes, your car is falling apart. This is just one of the plethora of things that are now going to start breaking on your TT.
      The glove box handle has broken on practically every TT on this forum. I think what happened to you is that the little gear that makes one side pull right and the other side left has broke off of its pin. SO now it wont hold it shut. It sounds like your handle is still on, correct?
      Then your windows will squeel as they go down, such a charming attribute of the high dollar car. (There is a fix for this on Jeff Bipes page.)
      Next will probably be your cluster, whether it be a guage not working right, or perhaps the center display will have lines start failing. (Uber annoying)
      Then, Your windows will probably start going nuts(rolling up and then down then up again, when you hit the switch.
      Then your turn signals will start going nuts when you use them (This will be your hazard relay causing this problem).
      Then your fog lights will start acting up ( When you turn the headlights on they will be on no matter what. You will lose the ability to turn them on separately when the headlights are on.
      Then (my personal favorate) the two doors in the back seat area will stop staying closed. They will pop open whenever you hit a bump.
      And I am sorry to say that I have not left the interior yet.
      Now to the engine bay (The engine is actually a pretty solid engine)

      Coilpacks go way to often (When one goes bad, just replace them all)
      MAF's fail quite a bit (Alot of times cleaning will fix this)
      Secondary Air injection System will start causing a squeel on startup.
      The engine is just noisy, which will probably drive you nuts. And it will sound different whenever it feels like it just to make you think there may be something wrong with it (which there probably will be)
      You should install a "catch can", so your intercoolers dont fill with oil.

      Suspension/Exhaust
      This car is without a doubt the noisiest car I have ever owned (And there have been many) This car has more noises and rattles then I think it has parts. The suspension creeks, the exhaust rattles(even the stock one). And I know that there are fixes for all this ****, but should we all really have to replace all of our bushings with Poly? Couldnt they have just done that from jump street?
      This seems like a new one lately, Wheel bearings at abnormally low mileages. What a bitch these are to replace yourself. And annoying as hell to have to listen to.
      All of the above things happened to me on my 2002 TT in the short less then 2 year ownership I have had. I am sure that I missed some things but you get the gist of it.
      If you can look past all of these problems, then I guess the TT is a really fun car to drive. But I simply cannot. There is not enough money in the world for me to afford to own this car. I am entirely to picky. I have done every maintanance and then some and kept her so shiny that you could go blind if you looked at her the wrong way, and for all this she still hates me.
      But it looks hot as hell though, doesnt it? Inside and out, a work of art within itself. It is a shame that they concentrated on that one aspect when they built it..

      Thanks fingy, for opening the door for this one. I really needed to vent some frustration. This car keeps me awake at night calling "Kenneth, come fix some more broken ****". And thats just really ****ed up right there, I dont care who you are.

      yeah i can def. agree with most of the problems from the rant, i had to pry my glovebox open with a screwdriver to get all my **** out plus now my car won't stop running lean because im not getting enough spark and i have changed my spark plugs so many times i stopped counting and now since i dont have my book i have some weird warning sign coming on in the cluster with a circle and lines around it, so if anyone knows what that is please help me out, but even with all that, this car is fun and i think is worth the trouble, but thats just me

      How do I know an early TT got the suspencion fixed appart from the spoiler and the ASR? button?
      Are there any hidden differences that someone trying to sell an revised TT as a revised TT wouldnt change and I could find out about?
      Thankx.
      And before telling me to ready the FAQ, I've read the FAQ and still cant see where that is.

      The best way to tell would be to get the VIN, and check with Audi to see whether or not that specific TT had been taken care of; Audi should keep recall records based on the VIN

      well i found out the problem with my issues running lean is because my connectors for my coil packs got messed up when a local shop just ripped them off so now i need all new connectors and pins, any ideas on where to get them?

      I know "TTguy30" and the car. First off, he does NOT have an ALMS edition. He has an aviator gray with gray interior. Second he had an issue with the spark plugs and having them installed at his buddy's honda shop, to which he was told the spark plugs did not need to be gapped out of the package, as they were already gapped.. which is not true. Third, he owes me money. that is all.

    16. 01-27-2008 02:03 PM #41
      And speaking of ALMS's... we forgot Avus Gray in the color codes available!

      There is no avus grey. It is avus silver that came with the ALMS. There is Aviator Grey though. LZ7W is the code. I am sure it is in there though.

      Doh! meant avus silver!

      Very helpful FAQ, I am in the process of picking up a TT now. Can someone points me to the direction where I can find the service manual for the Audi TT? I want to know what is involved for a 60k miles service. I have searched and can't find the service manual.

      Thanks tonnes. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
