      OK new DIY time. This one is more practical and I was inspired to do this for BBLACK who is one of our forum users.
      I use http://www.photobucket.com You can open a free account with them, and all you do is:

      1. go to ("my albums") and click on it

      2. then it gives you the option of ("choosing file") to add new pics off your desktop

      3. then copy and paste the ("img code") into the body of your forum post
      To post pics on Fourtitude select ("img code") Other forums may use a slightly different format such as ("html code")
      Mazel-tov homies!

      This is from a forum overseas, but if you have the 3.2 or TTS and are looking for the EVOMS intake this will help you with your install. You just need to move the "UFO shaped" noisepipe section back towards the firewall on the TTS. More on that in Webisode 9ish

      Couldn't find anything online for the MKII's so I took some pics as I replaced this wear & tear item. Pretty simple (sort of ). I'll post them if anyone's interested?

      Mine goes wonky all the time, and the dealership is getting sick of me coming by! I'd be into seeing how it gets done for the future.

      I dont have pics, but here is the breakdown since I just yoinked mine out. The rear seat and parcel shelf components weigh 56 lbs btw!

      You need to pull the rear interior 1/4 panels to get to the lg. star torx bolts on either side of the rear seat back rest. It's not entirely easy, and then there is a 15mm socket needed to pull out the center brace which affixes under the rear seat for the seat belts. I don't have pics to share with you of the process since I pulled them out super quick before I dropped the car off for the next round of mods last week.

      Hope this helps man.

      TJ, I'm hyped to hear that you are looking into doing some ICE modding too. The biggest PITA in the removal of the rear seats is the star-torx that has to slid under the rear passenger 1/4 panel to reach the bolt that free's up the rear seat. There is nothing really to break if you take your time. I pulled all of mine out in under 20 mins solo style. As for whomever claims that you don't recoup lost weight when pulling out the all metal framed rear seat..... well thats just asinine.

      Me.... not so much. I was hopeful that more people would share what they've been up to. Maybe people just "google" the mods and don't have to figure it all out themselves anymore? Either way I hope others revive this thread.

      i search the web before tackling mine and mount nothing on the MKII..

      this is to detail taking the vent out and install the pod ring.. i do not currently have a boost gauge to do a full gauge write up but will add to this once i do so..

      first is to get a decent screw driver to pry out the vent.. just stick the screw driver between the vent and dash and wedge slightly til you can get a finger grip on it and use your hand to pull the rest out..


      2nd step is to stick a think screw driver between the metal trim and plastic for the vent and give it a slight twist i tried 2 diffrent spots and it popped off.. just repeat going round the trim till it is completly off..



      the end result will look like this..



      next step is to remove the plastic trim piece that opens and closes the vent from the metal trim ring.. look on the inside and you will see 3 tabs.. you can use you flat screw driver and pop them loose then seperate..


      you will end up with 2 pieces like this..


      next line up the 3 tabs from the OSIR pod it will only go on 1 way as the tabs are not evenly spaced.. so if you put it on you will have to spin it until the tabs line up then click it in place..



      final result with out gauge installed is this..


      i hope this helps i few people out.. im far from a teacher.. and not use to doing step by step write ups..

      DIY: HID kit installation in Audi TT mk2

      Im attaching a video from youtube of HID kit Installation on a New Audi TT mk2

      You don´t need to drill your headlight cover.

      Nobody could tell the difference between the halogen vs the OEM HID headlights (no cables or ballasts outside the headlight)

      Can anyone post a DYI on changing out the front and rear brake pads on a stock TTS? Or point out one that exists somewhere else?

      Seeming that I like the amber mod that Jason and his vinyl came up with, I'm going to take it one step further this weekend and going to attempt to remove the actual reflector and spray can them matte black. One of the B8 owners just did his - ended up giving me the confidence to do the TT ones. I'm going was going to buy euro headlights in the UK but I figure I might attempt this mod, and if all goes well I'll save myself atleast $1200.

      Heatgun, flathead screwdriver, matte black spray can, torx set, masking tape and some backup silicone here I come!
