      You know what? Got problem with Audi headquarters...

      They simply refuse to change my headlights. They got one case where the inside bulbs (reading lights??) were flashing with the outside while turning...

      Maaan!! Do you believe that!!

      I'm stuck! Because the headquarters is the best audi dealer you could find to make the mod! Dont want an unexperienced guy touching the electronics of my car!!!
      What a mess...

      Still waiting for my KW kit2...

      Waiting, always waiting...

      Hey Skybird...
      Nice to see you finally...
      Really missed ya Man..

      Regarding the TTS headlight...
      You should ask the service supervisor to send your issue into online support, in main factory, they'll pass him the process and what to do from A-Z, Just let him know that this exercise have been done globally. Customers asks to add the TTS led lights into their TT's with paying additional charges.. Charges of TTS headlights & fixing it.

      My friend... u know..
      if you're here... or in Germany, Japan.. Korea..
      they'll do it blindly...
      coz actually.. you're buying their product & adding it to their product.
      so they suppose to motivate customers to do so but not to go to the aftermarket..

      Anyway.. give it shot.. and Let's see what's gonna happen.

      I took some pictures for those who are keen of this bodykit.
      It's a nice kit, good quality, but... not an R8...
      Less expensive than PPI..

      Hey NeverOEM, whass up with your tt


    9. 09-12-2008 10:10 PM #114
      Hey Skybird...

      hmmmmmm... nice shots...
      MMMMMan you should be a photographer..

      Well... as you said previously..
      the car is mix of kits..

      but you know what...
      Tell me what shall I do...!!
      We don't have any Audi Tuner here...
      Only ABT and they tripling the prices...

      if I were in Japan or Germany... I'll tune my car differently.

      but here is the list of Tuning I did..
      1- Rieger Full body kit + Exhaust + Je Design ECU upgrade + 20 Rims + Paint brakes calipers with red + LSD doors
      2- ABT Black paint front to back.
      3- Cayman Black Edition Strips. (You'll wonder why! Coz Porsche & Audi has the same agency & same workshop here, so they can do it).
      4- Kenwood Nav, Similar to the mostly everybody change here. (Coz our agency with their wisdom, do not provide it even with demand).
      5- Eissenman Exhaust.
      6- Defi gauges with control unit.
      7- interior color Red and black leather.

      Now
      8- Change Rieger front lip with Invader front lip & DTM carbon fiber.
      9- Side carbon fiber DTM's.
      10- TID full carbon fiber wing.
      11- TID carbon fiber Steering Accessory.
      12- APR ECU upgrade
      13- APR intercooler
      14- APR Fuel Pump.
      15- APR K04 Turbo kit
      16- APR downpipe
      17- Gruppem Carbon fiber Air Intake System. (Pending)
      18- GT Brembo brake kit (Pending)
      19- Change 20' Rims to 19' Rims (Pending)

      Next plans
      20- Re-paint car with new color.
      21- Add HLS -Hydrolic lifting System- if found.
      22- Modify front engine cover with Ferrari GTB 599 front-hood.
      23- H & R springs.
      24- Coilover with positions (if found).

      & that's it for this car.. lol


      So far,
      these are the companies I dealed with:
      1- Rieger (Bodykit + Exhaust)
      2- Eta Beta -Italy- (20' Rims)
      3- Eisenman Exhaust.
      4- TID (Wing & Accessories)
      5- Invader (Bodykit)
      6- APR (Engine Tunning)
      7- Je design & APR (ECU upgrade).
      8- Kenwood (Nav, DVD,...etc)
      9- Defi (Gauges)
      10- Prestige (Leather work)
      11- Gruppem (Air Intake system)
      12- KW (Coilover canceled). MRC problem
      13- Tarox (Brakes, canceled). expensive & hard to gain pads.
      14-Greddy (brakes, canceled). expensive & hard to gain pads.
      15-HPA (brakes, canceled ,No response)
      16- STASIS (coilover, canceled, slow response).
      17- Forge (intercooler, Canceled, installation needs modification).
      18- KMD tuning (K04 Turbo kit, canceled,Slow response)
      19- Neuspeed (Air intake system, canceled, shield problem)
      20- Brembo Brakes of GT35 Skyline (canceled, Needs modifications)

      That's all the effort done for this car. (too much haa..lol)

      I also understand the feelings. But to recommend this is not the proper way to handle the matter. It seems that "to let the world know what APR means..." is wrong. Things are often NOT as they appear. Talking with all the participants in the transaction is the start to resolving the issue.

      To the OP, I hope that you are able to resolve all your problems in a reasonable time frame and to your satisfaction. Good luck to you.


      "Things are often NOT as they appear"... with a missing part after having waited more than 50days????

      Come on... I won't argue with you...

      But for me:
      I would Never-ever deal with APR...

      End of story!

      Hey Mugen, check the rear spoiler of the Black TT hereabove, posted by uae Prince. It's the same as the grey one. The black TT has the Caractere Kit. The exhausts might be from MTM...

      I don't have pictures from 'far behind'. But this might help...


      And the grill, with the plate. Humm, I would not say it's black, but a very dark grey. I touch it of course! Yeah, it's quality...


    21. 09-16-2008 06:10 PM #126
      THANKS A LOT!!!

      So, these pictures are yours?? I mean, you actually saw this kit/car in person??

      The front grill is just what I want! I think the dark grey will just match the rear carbon fiber valance I want......on the other hand, I really like the look of the rear caractere spoiler when in the down position, but I think it looks a little weird while in the UP position. What do you think? Specially when seen from far behind.....for instance, I liked it a lot until I saw this picture:

      It looks like it is really small, and like if it did not belong there.....I mean, the TT has very soft and clean lines, but it does not seem to flow while in the up position......

      Guess what: U'll be mad for 50 other days waiting and waiting...
      I hope not, coz this is really unbelievable
      They should have a check-list... Quality control is apparently not implemented. Man, I'll be so upset, I swear...


      I checked the list of mods you've done.
      Impressive! Are you sure it's still a TT under all that??

      What's wrong with MRC and KW? (You cancel it! well I don't have MRC)

      HLS? Maaannn, it's not really necessary. You gonna face bugs to solve that problem coz it's not for Audi... You said it once: audi parts can't beat the aftermarket ones. Well, it depends... The NAV and radio is not the best I've seen. So I choose aftermarket.

      I've been looking once again to all bodykits and wings. As you know me now, I am not keen to "overcharge" the car lines. And I'm waiting for the TID results on your car to decide what's the best for mine.


      Let's wait and see!

      YES, I saw the car and took those pictures, because, believe me or not, it is quite impressive to see it in real. I mean, there were other "normal" TT's in-there, and the one with the Caractere kit is definitely the flashy-one!
      I noticed the quality of the materials, but I knew the company for having used the TT8N kit previously.
      If you like the grill, go for it! Just pay attention to which tuner you gonna order it. Because I noticed that the Caractere kit appears with other denomination to some tuners, and the material does not seem to be the same.
      All parts are signed by the company itself...

      I fully agree with you 'bout the spoiler while up. It looks small, but in fact, it is small.
      I would rather choose the PPI which is wider with a bit of conservatism of the original look. In my opinion, it's the best rear spoiler for the TT. I love it's design...


      I saw the Caractere kit on a black TT too. I can take pictures next week if you want, but it's a less impressive look than the grey one..

      I love the Caractere grill, it give the TT definitely a more sporty appearance.

      Here is mine that I got painted gloss black to match my fog covers and rear diffusor

      Thanks

      The grill does not come with the rings or chrome surround which is very bad in my opinion, as it is very expensive for what it is

      But it does give the car such a good look

      Here is what comes


      and when put together and painted

      you have to rip the rings and chrome surround off your stock grill and glue them to the Caractere.

      but you can leave the rings mount off (it is only attached by two screws with washers) for that extra mean look


    28. 09-17-2008 03:44 PM #133
      You also post on the tt-forum, right?? Love your car! I really love the front grill and will defintely put in on my car!
      Tell me, I see that in your picture (before paiting) the license plate part looks black, is it black? Or is dark grey (same as the picture that skybird posted?)

      In the caractere catalog it looks dark grey (similar as the S3 oem grill). I am intrigued about that, since I also plan on going with titanium RS4 wheels and a rear carbon fiber valance and would like everything to flow.

      thanks!

      You know man...
      that's exactly what I was hope to see and know..

      Yeah, I'm on the tt-forum and I'm a mod on tt-talk.com

      That picture above is a good representation of the grills colour, it is very similar to the standard 2.0T grill on the TT.

      You could paint it the exact titanium colour also

      Back when I got mine, parts4vws.com did not have the grill, that is a very good price.

      Also when I got mine, taking into account the currency rates of the time and the sipping from the US vs UK, RSD were about 30-40 euro cheaper than ll-tek and they are well know on some of the forums I visit

      But that price from parts4vws.com is wayhead of the rest isn't it.
