      So my valvecover polish is done.

      Spend 9 hours on it.
      Also polished the charge pipe from the turbo to the intercooler.

      Tomorrow i will order some new strut bushing, mine are noisy.

      Ordered some new part for her

      Some new heavy duty front strut bushing (leon cupra 1ML 412 331) some bearings, spark plugs etc.

      Hopefully the irritating noise from the front suspension will disappear I replaced almost everything now...

      Hello,

      New small update for the TT. I made a short shifter for her.

      I installed it and it feels so different. I don't now if i like the short side to side movement.
      But the forward /backward movement is much shorter and feels so good.

      I cut the stock brackets and welded it all back together.

      I started with this:


      and the result:

      And that loss of weight and momentum doesnt hurt the shifting?

      No not all. Feels much better without the weight.

      Don't understand why all newer cars have this weight.

      there was a company called diesel geek a long time ago that was very popular that made short shift kits that looked very similar in design to that. simple and effective. i had a bit of experience with them. they were great for a while. then after some time got notchy and over time more and more notchy eventually it got annoying.

      keep us updated if it gets annoying and you dont like it

      Today i replaced my front strut bushing.

      As mentioned i replaced them with seat cupra R which are much stronger.
      First impression: Drives much better, the difference is so much. Reason why i did this job: sometimes on bad roads the front suspension was knocking / rumbling
      I recommend it to do this update.

      The differences, left the new one, on the right the old dimensions are the same.


      And under the bonnet: Left the old and right the new ones.

      Ok, i hope this will not happen to mine

      Drove now for 600km with it and it feels stills fine. But... sometimes it's more difficult to get them in the right gear. If its get notchy, i will place the originals back.

      It probably just needs some adjustment. They are very touchy when not adjusted properly

      Guys i need your help.

      The front end is still noisy on bad roads, last month i replaced the front struts.
      I thought it was the problem but it's still there... (not so loud anymore)

      I jacked up the car to inspect everything but i can't find anything. All bushing are looking fine. I did an test with a large screw-driver to check everything. i can't find anything.

      My stab rods are brand new, all joint are brand new.

      When i start the car in the morning and take my first ride it's more noisy than when the car is hot.

      I was wondering if someone have suggestions were to search.

      Did you check where the subframe mounts to the body or motor mounts maybe? I'm really not sure.

      yes i mean sway bar end links (didn't know the right description haha)

      Good point to check the engine mounts. Didn't think about that.

      The slop is from the rubber in the cable ends. Replace those with these and you'll be good to go. I did similar mods to my 6 speed linkage as you, though mine are pin style, not ball style ends. Grind off rivet, drill new hole, weld pins in place. Screw paying $150-$200+ for a short shifter.

      ^that. Those bushings from speed source are great. If you really want a short shifter, scour the earth for a B&M (if you can find one).I love mine. The best "actual shifter" out there. Props on doing it yourself

      @20vmaster: My car came with ball type shifter. Between 1998 and 2002 it was stock like this:
      click
      There is no room on these ball joints. The TT drives great with the new shifter kit, saved allot of €€ hihi.

      Yesterday i did a research to seach for my noisy front end. It looks like the dogbone mount rubber is worn out...
      So i ordered allot off thing now to solve the problem:
      -new dogbone mount rubber
      -new lower control arm bushing
      -new sway bar bushing

      hope this helps

      sorry guys

      Last Sunday i did the local clubmeet. The day day started sunny, but in the way to the meet it got rainy. Very rainy...The were not so many cars as suspected.

      I think we drove with 20 cars. But still nice to see all the TT's all together. The day was nice because we drove and see some special places here in Holland. We drove 3x 70km through the forest and typical dutch places.

      I forgot my camera
      Here some phone pics of the roadtrip.






      Those pics are taken on the racing cicuit (at the end of the day)



      hope you like

      for the noise, does it sound like loud tire noise just a little more harsher? if so might want to check out the wheel bearing/hubs.

      Yes last sunday was very nice we had bad whether but the route was perfect.

      The blue one on the pic was a tdi very special

      The problem with the front end noises isn't solved yet

      I replaced all bushing with original vag stuff included the sway bar end links. The noise is only on bumpy roads. I checked all ball joints and replaced the steering rods.

      There is a little bit space on my driveshafts but not very much. I also checked all bolts in de engine compartement but found no loose bolts.

      Personally i think the problem is in my tranny... But i dont replace the tranny again.
      Mayby in the future if it gets worser.

      Meet me in the middle and we'll cruze, one with the most speeding tickets on the way wins
      Your up by 2 so I have alittle making up to do

      I know exactly what you mean though, only one other BT TT I know of here in Utah and his car has been down for a couple of years. Everyone likes the GTI, go figure
