      Good god man, DO NOT have the spoiler installed. Do you know how rare it is to have an original un-spoiled TT???

      Edit. if you feel you must get a spoiler, why not trade hatches with another silver tt owner. Post a WTT ad here and the other forums and I'm sure you get several offers. then you can put the savings toward other mods.

      cheers.

      How'd you remove the mirrors?
      I am wanting those split mirrors too. Mine are filthy with water spots :/

      and I've been wanting to put those wipers on as well, but I try to pull them suckers off but they dont budge. The Bentley states that there is a special tool but I cannot find it anywhere!

      I am on the fence about it, believe me. But I lean towards the Coupe looking better with the spoiler and the vert looking better without it. It would be a free install from the dealer and it's tentatively scheduled for next week - I have had thoughts about cancelling it. But the 3.2 add on is calling my name.

      The mirrors are just a really tight snap fit onto the inner workings. If you look at the back of the mirrors, can find a pic, you'll see. They have already saved me once or twice from sideswiping a car in traffic. They are very very useful.

      The wipers are worth every penny and are probably a 7 minute install from unlocking your car, popping the hood, unscrewing, so forth.

      The cap in the center of the axis of rotation pops off, use a 13mm socket to unscrew the nuts. Then press on the HINGE of the wiper, where the two parts of the arm come together and it should wiggle around a bit. You keep pressing and wiggling and they come off. Once you figure it out, it's super fast. Then you put the aero wipers on, making sure to get them as low as possible, and then hand tighten the 13mm back on.

      You could make cash + trade on that hatch man. Not my style, but LOTS of people want this look!

      Also have a couple other things I want to figure out.

      The passanger side window does not seem like it seals perfectly. Is there a way to adjust the seal via moving the latch for the door? Or is it a rubber seal issue?

      Would like to replace rubber around tail lights.


      Need to restore headlights


      Needs some Qtip action in here


      And a rear shot

      Do not, I repeat. Do not put a spoiler on that hatch. I would sell it, or trade it. If it was AG I would be all over that jawn

      LOL, If it was AG, I'd have already made the trip; swapped hatches doing all labor myself; given him some cash too plus some beer, pizza, and a comfy chair to watch; and made it back home by the time you posted.

      cheers.

      ...don't touch that hatch.

      Seriously.

      Wow youve got yourself a nice looking TT!

      I agree with these guys, even though shaved rear TT isnt my style either, you could make some $$ trading that puppy for what youre looking for. why not right? only thing youre really losing is the "time" it takes to get the buyer, other then that, its all wins for you. You get your spoiler plus some extra $$.

      And about those side mirrors! I need more info! I like

      DO NOT DO IT....silver looks soooo good without the spoiler...

      Not sure how you guys all don't know about the european blind spot mirrors. Otherwise known as 'convex...cheapest i have found them is genuinevwaudiparts.com (and for all my TT and RS6 parts). ECS, TTStuff etc all have them but they are more. Path below should get to the mirrors...if not just put in the info, look in the catalog under doors, then mirrors.

      Audi forced us to have it beginning MY2001. FWIW, I got an estimate for removal and paint recently: $1700. I've been told low estimates are near $1000 for removal and repaint.

      that seems pretty steep to me. You could remove the spoiler yourself and just get a shop to fill the holes and blend into the hatch. I doubt it would be more than $500-600
