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:
Lowering springs all round
Both O2 sensors
Thermostat and Sensor & dipstick
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.
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.
Cambelt needs changing car has done 48k since it was last changed but its been over 5 years so this is my number one. luckily I have a well known indy near me called JKM in portsmouth so this will be done end of the month.
