      Exactly, Short wheelbase and stiff suspension with limited travel means that lifting one corner at a time leaves you with only one tire on the ground pretty quickly. Much easier to get the car in the air, and safer too, if you use two jacks and lift both sides at the same time.

      You guys are hardcore! I suppose having 2 would also let you use one of the other jack points for a jackstand while jacking up from another point. Okay, count me in for another one.

      No R8 etching this time around. I'll ask about cost of etching and will advise all.

      I received the quote from my machinist. He's way, way off from what folks expect to pay.
      $155.00 each.

      He proposed a two piece construction that would be a plate with a bolted on boss. Technically it would be fine, but at $89.00 each it's not much of a cheaper proposal. It's not that these are terrible investments even at that price, but given that the originals were only $25, it does make it a bit exorbitant.

      My apologies to Stevelev. I forgot to email the documents yesterday. I'll get it done today I promise.


      Oh, and this might go without saying, but I'm definitely in for two as well.

      One more thing I forgot to mention:
      I took my digital calipers and measured the jack point on my 2012 TT, and took a variety of sockets to confirm the redius of the boss at the top. Length of the boss as originally designed looks is perfect. According to the google sketchup model I received, that would leave just a fraction of an inch of clearance side to side, which is just fine.

      To my best determination, the cup of the jack point on the car is actually designed at a 15mm radius. The model I received is at a 9/16" radius. Bpth of thoese are rare machining bits to source in the US as it turns out. My machinist was going to use a 1/2" radius bit, and leave a little flat strip in the middle which would have been perfectly fine. Those are little details, but I mention this because I want folks to be assured that these jack pads will indeed fit as originally designed and shown in the pics early in this thread.

      I'll just say it simply: The original design has been fully vetted, and confirmed for even the newest TT. Audi has not changed the jack point design at all.

      Still awaiting confirmation. I'm hopeful that costs will be similar to the initial run but will ultimately be determined by number of confirmed buyers. Once I receive confirmed pricing, I'll post this up along with estimated shipping costs. Bear in mind that I'm in Canada so shipping south to the US will more than what within the US would be. For international shipping (other than to the US), I'll have to deal with those on a one off basis.

      Here's an update:

      1) Assuming we have more than 15 produced (and paid for!), cost will be under $30. each
      2) Turnaround time will be 2-3 weeks which should work out fine for receipt prior to March 1st
      3) Etching can be done for $2. extra per pad BUT a high res vector image file must be provided. I'll revisit this ONLY if someone wants this AND can provide the file.

      Once I figure out the shipping details (hopefully by end of day), I'll provide final purchase details.

      Cheers !

      Probably a silly question, but what's the diameter of the disc that will be seated on the jack? I don't know if such things are standardized, but I use a tiny floor jack and want to make sure it's going to mate up correctly before I say I'm in. Thanks.

      Assuming price is in the $30 area, I'm in for 4. Count on that.

      The size of the jack pad is approx. 3 inches round so it should fit in pretty well any jack. I plan to use Paypal for this deal and once all is firmed up I'll provide final details.

      Costs:

      I'm gonna peg the cost at $30. each at this point assuming we'll hit 25. This puts a few bucks in my jeans to help rationalize the expected PITA shipping hassles ...

      Shipping:

      I was able to obtain info on shipping to the US and it aint pretty due to being north of the 49th ! Assuming I purchase padded envelopes and send via Canada Post (most convenient for me), the cost with insurance but no tracking is approx $20. per pad. Although there appears to be virtually no savings in shipping cost for 2 pads, the shipping time would be reduced and would include tracking.

      Although the online cost to ship one pad to the US is a couple bucks more with Fedex compared to Canada Post, it appears to be the best bet due to shipping time being greatly reduced (4 business days) and tracking is included. Fedex shipping to say, Florida for 2 pads seems to be a far better deal at $25. This is before any costs for packaging. I'll firm this up tomorrow.

      Etching:

      Assuming a vector file will be provided, the add'l cost would be $2 per pad and must be for all pads. Seems I'm in a position to make a unilateral decision on what, if anything is laser etched but will first try doing this by vote. How about someone set up a vote thread and we'll see where it takes us?

      I'm reading that the total for a pad will be @ $55?(fed ex to Ohio) When you are ready I can prepay to help move things along.

      etching is no biggie with me but I can go with the group.

      Stevelev,

      4 inches in diameter.

      I would think the TT emblem would make all of us Happy if you can only do one, it is the only one that fits all of our needs.

      I would take the etching, $2 is worth it to me. If majority does not that is fine also.
