      I just aquired my tt on thursday night and thought i might go ahead and introduce it. It is a 225 6 speed quattro with only 32000 miles! Silver with grey/black interior. I am still over joyed with it and i am finding things everyday that i hadnt seen before. This thread is for the proggression of mods and i will add to it every so often.
      So far my list for the main things is:
      ST coilovers
      3.2l rear valence and wing
      ROTA Grids 17x9
      Engine related mods...not decided yet

      I am still searching for more things, but this is it for now.

      Here are some pics that i took just a little while ago, thanks for looking!

      Charles, The V2 looks great. Glad you're happy.

      Paul's got a sleeve on his shaft cut from a golf club shaft. Works well with the V1s like Pauls, but not so much on the V2 as the top is domed and there's a little more rubbing. But, take a little wet/dry to that shaft and it will polish up nicely.

      Check the pics/video at Charlies website and you'll see his V2 with polished shaft...from wet/dry.

      Hey Paul,

      I just noticed you put some "dimples" in the top of your budget knob. Well played/very OEM-ish.

      Charles,

      check it out. ^^^^ Time to get that dremel out and go to work. ;-)

      8 dimples and then polished the crap out of it!

      Looks like you sold New Guy the V1, not V2. Am I wrong?

      That's the V2 (1 piece). Sold the V1 (2 piece) to a local guy.
      Edit: if you look close at his pic, you can also see the slight dome (not flat) in it too.

      well its time to bump the old thread.

      Some new stuff is on the car, 3.2 rear valence and front filler plate is fixed.

      I got some stuff on the way like madmax's control arms and a 42dd intake.

      Here's some xmmas day pics.

      Have nice day

      Very nice...for silver. ;-)

      spacers/lowered really make the fat5s pop. Martha would say, "it's a good thing."

      cheers and merry xmas.
