Had it about a month now and she's already been to nurburgring and spa where the car properly surprised me considering it's in stock shocks with eibach springs. The power and traction is unreal and even surprised our resident grumpy Scottsman Jamie haha love you really bro

  2. Nice to see you back fella. TT looks great and you haven't wasted any time tweaking it! A friend of mine has recently picked up one of these but not had a chance to go in it yet. He knows someone with an RS3 with a few tweaks and it seems like a rocketship. Be interesting to see what you do with this.

  4. Cheers lads it's certainly different to Megane but so much better in ways and worse in others, I accept it's not as raw or involving as Megane but as alrounder for all weather driving it's hard to beat.

    Yes this is 420bhp and 500lbs torque the map was put on before the exhaust and intercooler so needs updating. I've known the owner for 10 years and he now has my Megane so I'm glad it's in good hands

  12. I've been driving around most of the summer in my brothers stage 2 APR tuned DSG TTRS, complete with de-catted Miltek turbo-back and quite a few other mods :wink:

    The brakes were no-way near as sharp as expected so i fitted braided lines with RBF660 and some 2-piece floating Reylands with carbotech XP12 all-round, which dramatically improved things obviously, although at the cost of a bit of noise when driving normally.

    The noise is absolutely phenomenal, and the thing goes like shit off a shovel. The grip is phenomenal (although quite familiar with various quattro's having a few in the stable), but it *really* hooks up well with the DSG. It's absolutely brutal, and thankfully now has the stopping-power to match.

    It was very interesting compared it to my Golf R DSG in this regard, with it being 4wd (albeit haldex 5) and dsg. It just feels and sounds like this on steroids, but in the comfort of a smaller 2-seater coupe.

    The major down-side is in the handling department, IMO. I'm familiar with quattro understeer, but this thing really doesn't inspire confidence at speed - and it gets there bloody quickly! On some local test roads and at the ring i definitely had much more confidence and stability from both the R26 and Golf R than in the TTRS. I suspect some coil-overs would sort this entirely, at the cost of the adjustable magnetic OEM suspension.
  13. Surprised you mentioned the handling as I was very impressed with it at spa even Jamie seemed shocked it did as well as it did. Even so I'll still be adding the thickest rear anti roll bar available and some camber

  14. Nice motor. Hopefully I'll see you at the track again and ponce a passenger ride .

    I did the Circuit days Alpine tour a few years ago and they had a new TTRS press car on loan. I was driving my mates Ferrari 430 with flappies. We had a drag race (Kevin xxx driving TT) and it was neck and neck. I was very surprised .
