So I have been looking for a sorted TT for about 3 months now my previous car a 530d unfortunately was hit from behind and written off. I bought it back with full intention of getting it back on the road but after looking at the figures it was more sensible just to move on. 
 
So after seeing a bunch of sheds and people who want massive money for a car that still needs work I found this one. its a 2002 BAM engine in Light Silver Metallic Clearcoat LY7W/5B Its got Full Audi SH up to the last service which was done by the mechanic i bought the cars off company. pretty sure he did it but i have recipts to prove the parts and a stamp in the book so im happy. 
 
In the last 12 months the car has had:
 
Top mounts
Lowering springs all round
2 struts
Both O2 sensors 
Thermostat and Sensor & dipstick  :lol: 
Both window switches
Disks lathed and withing tolerances and new pads on the front
new bulbs all round
diff & gearbox oil changed
spark plugs filters ect
bunch of pipes replaced to cure an eml light. 
Refurbished alloys 
Rear ARBs
 
The guy i bought it off is a mechanic and obvioulsy was a bit of a labour of love but he was a big lad and he said he just needed a bigger car as he couldnt fit his family in anymore which i understand as im 6ft and theres not alot of room in the back with the seat in my position but i have young kids and wifes got a big car so not so much of a problem.
 
With that said any car you buy is always gonna have a few niggles and these are mine. 
 
Mechanicals:

So after my road trip yesterday I decided to have a go at coding a few bits for the car as I've got Vagcom because the wife used to own a beetle. 
 
So currently my car had none of the coded central locking options and also the dashpod needs were not alluminated all the time. this is something i really like as when you drive in a tunnel ect or as its getting dusk it helps.
 
So I wanted all the central locking options. 
 
 
1. Windows open/close - The comfort feature allowing windows to be opened or closed by holding the lock/unlock on the key fob.
2. Autolock - The car will lock when you reach 15km/h and unlock when you pull the key from the ignition 
3. Alarm confirmation beep - a very subtle beep when the alarm is correctly armed
4. Double press unlock - the drivers door only will unlock on the first press of the remote, 2nd press will unlock both doors.
 
To do this if you have vcds you:
 
Select control module
Module 35 Central Locking
Right hand side of the screen that comes up Recode 07
Then someone has handily made a little bit of decode software which can be found here http://www.wak-tt.co...comclcoding.htm credit to whoever did it.
Then put your number in software coding leave the workshop code and then press do it.
turn the ignition off and test.
 
It took me a couple of tries but i now have always illuminated needles. Alarm beep double press unlock Autolock and comfort windows  :P 
 
Nice and simple and didnt cost me anything. 
 
While I was at it I read the codes again & nothing so very happy 
 
Chi.

Took a trip to Audi today because although I had the service book I had no idea what had been done to the car. 
 
Suffice to say the owner didn't scrimp and used Audi all the way through

So my current car seat doesn't fit in the TT & my mrs is not happy with the current purchase. So after a bit of searching on here it looks like most people have said the Britax Duo ISO Fix is the seat to go with as it first well. As luck would have it someone close to me was selling one so I jumped in the car thismonrning and grabbed it. Removed the covers gave it a quick wash and it was good to go. 
 
After having a look through the manual it said only cars from 03 had the ISO fix and I didn't have any cut outs in my seats so I thoroughlt it would be belt only. So I googled if you could retrofit these and it said the a lot of U.K. Based card from 2000 had this fitted as standard so I had a look at what a ISO fix bracket looks like and boom I have them. So I fitted it all up properly today and gave it a test. My daughter is behind me in a booster and my youngest is behind the passenger as there is more room.

All in and as safe as I can make it

Really pleased with how secure the isofix feels.

Hi guys so i asked on here and hoggy kindly told me how to do this. but there didnt seem to be a write up about it so I thought i would do a really short one for anyone looking to do this in the future.
 
The symptom I was seeing my Revs increase when I pressed the clutch in when driving the car on hard boost. This can be linked to many things including leaks but for me it was this and a few other people. so ive you have recently had a clutch pedal failure or you have had the clutch changed or are just experiencing what I said it would be a good idea to replace this. 
 
However If anyone on here has VCDS and has this problem you can check if the switch is working correctly by going
 
Engine Controller 01
Measuring Blocks 08
In Group Type 066 
Go
 
When the Clutch is Depressed it will show as 100 when not it will show as 000 if its doing this then you know its working.
 
Ok so lets start off, we cant get to the switch because there is a panel in the way luckily this is a 5 minute job getting this off. 
 
First. 
 
IMG_0545_zpse4q5aloh.jpg
 
Unscrew the 3 Torx Screws I have marked in red 
 
Next
 
IMG_0544_zpsoe1iszy4.jpg
 
Remove the fuse box panel and remove these 4 Torx screws
 
Next 
 
IMG_0548_zpsw6dajlz4.jpg
 
Now we can remove the lower panel. this will come away with a tug. it is held on by clips now so a bit of force and it will come away. 
 
You will need to remove the head light height adjuster cable the lights cable and the OBD port cable then you can remove the bottom panel from the car. you will now have access to the switch. 
 
Next
 
IMG_0549_zpsieemyywm.jpg
 
Remove the electrical cable from the clutch pedal switch by pushing in the clips and pulling away from the switch. after that all you need to do is rotate the switch 90 degrees anti clockwise and pull the switch towards you and it should come out fine. 
 
Please note do not depress the new switch plunger as it will not spring back and you will need a new switch.
 
Now just replace the Switch in the reverse way you put it back in and refit the rest and your done. 
 
Take your car for a test drive and check everything's working.
