      I just picked up this mint 06 TT Quattro 225. The car has 49k miles. It has all its service records and was inspected at the audi dealership. carfax was good on it and was a 1 owner car.

      plans for this one at the time being is intake, frontmount, apr ecu tune, full exhaust (which brand sounds best), coilovers, and a whole lot im missing.

      42 Draft Designs for your turbo back exhaust, an't go wrong, If it was available when I bough my exhaust, I would have one.

      Would also recommend getting a boost gauge. Vent mounted is always nice, but it comes down to personal preference.

      Nice color/wheel option combo. I'd be interested to see what else has been done to the car. The painted rear calipers tell me that the previous owner might have been of the tuning mindset. That being said, I'd see if there's an APR tune on the ECU. Stock DV? Also, add to your list a timing belt job (should be done at 60k, your close). Congrats on the new car

      welcome ! cant wait to see your build too !

      love the color combo, that red interior is loud and i love it.

      def get coilovers , but if you want to go real low and can afford the $ get bags

      looks like you have smaller streched tires too.. get spacers! push those b!itches out

      boost gauge for sure. dv, timing belt

      like he said about the previous owner mod mindset id check to see if theres software already on the car.. you never know. put a boost gauge in first to find out !

      I know I've already told ya, but good find marshall. Great looking car and a very good base to start with!
      Do it right or do it twice.

      Bags and wheels don't make show cars. Ingenuity and originality are lacking in the scene.

      other then the calipers being painted the car is bone stock. it has the stock airbox and all. the motor bay is clean as can be. I really want to put bags on it and notch the frame.

      yeah ill be getting close to 60k in then next 3 months i have a long commute to work each day.

      i think im going to order a intake kit this week and maybe a dv.
